Wow. Worst… nickname… ever. At least it’s better than when I was on the high school football team and they used to call me Chris Chlamydia.
I’m kidding, I’m kidding.
I wasn’t on the football team in high school.
i have been told over and over again to gain weight through any means possible(note the nutella for example) and i think that will be a habit backfiring on me.[/quote]
That’s because you used to be 130 freakin’ pounds. That’s very light, and it’s why you were able to gain so much, so quickly. Now that you’re a more “normal” weight, you may need to slightly drop your calories, depending on how you’re still gaining. Also, if you do end up reducing your training volume as I mentioned earlier, you may need to reduce calories a bit since you’re “spending” less calories in the gym.
Play it by ear depending on the actual strength and bodyweight progress you see each week. I really like this article for some basic ideas to set up a decent nutrition plan:
Ok guys in that case i would like to clear something up to restore your faith in beginners:
i do not regularly eat frozen processed shit. it’s more of a once in a fortnight kind of thing.[/quote]
That’s exactly why it’s important for us to ask and for folks to actually answer. The overwhelming majority of the time, presuming they do actually answer, they’ll follow it up with a clarification, “Well, yeah, I ate that yesterday but seriously, I usually eat wayyy better than that.” Just sayin’, if you don’t keep an eye on things 24/7, before you know it you’ll have more special exceptions and eventually, you look back like, “Hey, where are those results I was supposed to see?!?”[/quote]
LOL, did they still call you “Chris Chlamydia”?
That article basically sums up my diet. Thanks for posting that! I’ll use that for reference for some friends.
