When I was 180, I thought that eating 4 eggs toast and cereal for breakfast, a ham sandwhich, apple, milk, and raisins for lunch and 12oz of steak with veggies for dinner was a lot. Then I realized that my requirements for the day was like 3000 calories.
That day of food is 2200 tops. So now, 60-70lbs later. I eat about 4500-5000 calories a day and strugle to gain 2lbs a month.
Just an example of a normal day for me:
Breakfast: 6 eggs, 2 pieces of wheat toast, cup of grits, 1 scoop whey, 1oz cheddar cheese.
Preworkout: 1 scoop whey
Postworkout: 3 scoops whey, 2 bananas, 1 1/2 cups whole milk,7 ice cubes blended in a shake.
Dinner 1: 10oz steak, 2 cups rice
Dinner 2: 10oz steak, 2 cups vegetables
Prebed: 2 scoops whey, 1 cup whole milk, 5 ice cubes blended in a shake.
That's about 4500 calories. If you're not eating like this daily, you're not going to grow like you want to. I'm exactly your height 6'2" and I would only now start to consider AAS, and I'm 238!
Work your ass off, intensely. Eat cows and drink their nector. Take some vitamins. Sleep good. You can gain a ton just by eating like a shark. You'd be disapointed in starting AAS now, too much natural potential. I'm really not telling you anything that everyone else doesn't know, and most of them wont give you the time of day with a post like this, but I was in your shoes, wanting to start a cycle at 175-180.
When you wisen up, you'll realize that AAS is only helpful if you really, really know what you're doing, which aside from a choice few, noone really has it down.
So, to reiterate, eat some food literally, you'll never be hungery (except after workout) but you'll have to trust us and keep eating. And please please, o for God's sake please! don't worry about fat gain.
Gonna happen, is, inevitable, just deal with it. There will be time to cut in say... 2 years. Abs arent cool if you have chicken legs and pencil arms.
Wow, that's a book right there, anyone want to publish haha.
