At this stage of my life, I'm beyond trying to gain mass. But I've found that I still, if I want to attain a certain strength goal, I have "to eat my way through the sticking points."

Oh the humanity.

All the best,
Arden

Yeah, Pat, while I gained that 20lbs (including ~8lbs fat) between August and November/December I ate as much as I could handle at breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It was comical to see me put 7-10 plates and 7-10 bowls to get washed in the cafeteria, on top of the nuts I ate throughout the day. I realized that that first 12lbs of muscle was much needed because of the ease I gained it. Normally I eat 5000 to maintain.

Brian,

you do realize you are a genetically gifted freak of nature right?

And I refuse to accept that until my doctor shows me that. If I were genetically gifted I would be stronger now, and I would've been a much faster sprinter in high school. I'm also a TEENAGER as well so that is definitely going to be a huge factor in this.

A variation on gastric bypass?
