I am currently 133 with a hight of 5-10
and i cant seem to put on the weight.
I just seem to keep cutting.
I have been taking protein shakes for about 3 months and lifting 5 days a week
I had a serous gain in the beginning but it has died of since.
Problem is I know just eat more but I dont have the appetite and the time to do so. Work makes it hard to really sit down to eat when half the time I don’t even take a lunch.
I am looking for options should i maybe switch to a weight gainer instead?
I guess my initial questions would be; What else are you eating? Do you have a food log? I would bet a BJ from my hot-ass fiance you are not eating anywhere the amount of calories you should be eating. What is your protein / fat and carb breakdown?
What workout are you following? Are you overtraining?

lastly, you say you don’t have time to eat a lot. Well, if you don’t eat big, you will never get big. You have to get creative. Buy mixed nuts, beef jerky, cottage cheese to bring to work. Fuck, if you have to stuff your pockets with tater tots like Napoleon Dynamite did. YOU HAVE TO EAT AND EAT A LOT.

I hope I didn’t come across as harsh, but you can grow, if you are committed to doing so.
