I'm 6 ft and went from 150 lbs to more than 190 mainly by eating lots of nuts, beans, nuts, oatmeal, nuts, and more nuts. I'm around 180 now. When I was 150 I was really skinny, and when I was 190 I was starting to get fat. I don't eat a set amount per day, some days I eat as little as a 1000 calories, other days I'll 5000 or more calories. Basically I just listen to my body and it tells me when I'm hungry and what days to take it easy and what days to eat like crazy. When I was bulking I just kept eating even after my body said stop though. I would just say, okay I'm full but I'm going to make myself eat another cup of peanuts, and that worked for gaining.
What happens when your body keeps telling you to eat.. when you actually shouldnt be?
What I am trying to say is this:
- Somewhere in my late teens I built myself a tremendous APPETITE. I was like JUGHEAD from the ARCHIE comics. At a 5'11" 160 frame I could out eat friends who were twice my size ..
They would be like you dont eat.. Im like.. watch me.. I'd eat and they'd accept defeat.
Ofcourse, I would not gain a pound i.e. get fat. This continued till early 20s.
Then I moved to the US of A and my food habits went down the drain.
I dont know if it was the fact that I would overeat at dinners due to a lack of proper / missed lunch or the fact that FREE PIZZA and coke became easy eats that did not need one to go out and get food.
But I still have an appetite.. probably not the same since I am not as active anymore.. but I still have that LANKY frame.. but have this PIZZA remanent around my gut.
