Well I've been lurking around this site for some time, but never really contributed or took the advice. About 3 years ago I started taking lifting a lot more serious, but was training in MMA as well. I kept my weight down and stayed a lanky bastard (At the time I was 19/20, 6ft3 and my weight would go between 175-180.
Of course I had relatively low body fat, and was pretty lean and defined. About a year ago I started personal training at this new location, and met a trainer who's about 5ft10, 250lbs all natural and still pretty defined. He really inspired me to kick it up a notch in my training. My numbers went up but my size wasn't progressing as I pleased. I then started lifting with another trainer who is a teen body building champion in the state, and he introduced me to the fact that I eat like a bitch.
Thats where you guys come in. About 3 months ago I started reading up on nutrition more and bulking up. I found it was pretty easy with the way I was eating to put on size. My caloric intake was up high, my protein intake, and I was drinking water like a damn fish. My weight went up to 205 (I realize I had a lot more to do.. Just keep reading), so yes I gained 25 lbs in about 3 months. I was stoked. I was ready to keep progressing, and my final goal before a "cut" would be 230-250, not so sure how fast I would've progressed past the first 25.
Now here's the part of the story that makes me want to slaughter all domino's employees. So Sunday I order a large pizza for myself and my girlfriend (she eats a slice or two, and I try to stay relatively clean in my eating) I end up devouring it pretty quickly along with a monster lo carb so I could crunch out some work for my training business and she could do some school work. Around 10:30, it hits me
I uncontrollably vomit and by all means piss out of my asshole every 15 minutes. I go to bed thinking it'll pass, but instead am awoken by pressure working it's way up my throat. This lasted, and I shit you not, from 10:30PM - 7:30AM. By far the worst hours of my life. After that time, the puking stopped, but the ass pissing did not.
Anyway, long story short it's now Tuesday night, I am just gaining my ability to walk again (yes it was that bad, high fever and all). I get fully hydrated again, return to work, hit the scale, and I lost fucknig 17 lbs in 2 days. I couldn't even believe it. My jaw dropped. I worked 3 months of a no bullshit diet, eating till I was going to puke day after day, and it all was taken from me in a moment of cheesy bliss by those bastards at dominos.
Now I made this thread for 2 reasons:
1) To thank all of you guys who know what you're talking about. It DOES make a difference to some people who are actually motivated. The guys that give you shit just aren't doing it right.
2) Where do I go from here? Will it be easy for me to put the SAME weight on again? Will it be 3 weeks or 3 more months?
And I guess another reason would be to see if anyone had similar experiences..
Thanks in advanced for any help, and I wish I could show you some progress pics.. I unfortunately didn't take any before afters.. I'll post what I can I suppose.
