122 lbs, 5'9" here

Don't feel the need to bulk either, it is a personal choice...and I eat a reasonable enough as it is already and besides, I wouldn't be able to maintain the extra poundage it in the long term anyway.

I would have to eat an upwards of 3,500-4,000 (I think) calories a day to pack on weight and to me that is wasteful -- with my good workout metabolism/hormones/early 20's age.

Find a cow you can barely lift buy it lift it cary it home and eat it! Wake up tomorow and find a slightly bigger cow.

Yams and oatmeal will only6 help but keep it to after you work out like Martin said.

well dude, it makes my dick look that much meatier. haha

seriously though, why even bother fighting the current? If my body wants to be at 122 then let it, I'll just revel in other debaucheries... all the while continuing to eat my usual fare of spinach, garlic, figs and sardines -- yummmm

that's my metabolism right there

I like your fitday log though and laugh everytime I see the pretzels on there. What do you do like dip them in peanut butter? sounds good actually

let's be friends

Let's not go personal and keep it to the topic at hand....otherwise nothing is to be gained.

PWO discussion is the topic......in case we lost track.

Jay, play nice with others...if he is happy at lower weight...it's his decision on how he wants to live his life.

Fenthis, what ever weight you choose is up to you...we are not here to judge....although don't blame your metabolism if you don't want to gain weight by not eating enough......as the "quick metabolism" excuse is usually just those people who eat very little and run around way too much. Your body comp is your choice....but don't put down others for wanting more muscle or size...as your longevity may shorten with that attitude in the process.

Oh yeah.....your pwo attitude towards fruit is fine towards people who are lean like yourself....but that attitude does not work in mainstream society with overweight people who will not give up grains and other sweets....as I know since my living/profession is based on dealing with those people year after year.

To assume a native living off fruit with no other carb sources and the average sick american should do the same thing....is like comparing apples to rocks.

Are you saying that soda drinking, pizza loving couch potatoes shouldn't eat fruit because it'll make them fat?

I don't think so, but fruit isn't going to help those people at all by adding it to an already crap diet.
