So, I've been trying to gain weight for years.. But I apparently wasn't doing it properly. I also have an extremely fast metabolism, no matter what I eat, when I eat and the quantity, I would not gain a kilo. (I'm Australian, I don't know pounds) But, my issue is, I eat quantity over quality. I am now 21 and weigh 55kgs.. So I'm am TINY. I work out everyday, muscular workouts only, I do not job or anything because I burn calories quick enough as is. Haha. I have actually just recently bought a Mass Gainer, high in protein, calories and carbs. Also a bit of sodium for that absorption. ;) After reading think, I am undertaking a new diet. Going to keep a food diary and a complex game plan. Really happy I stumbled across this, thank you very much. Bookmarked for on the fly reference! I also didn't know about bigger weights, less reps = bigger gains!!!
Due to the cancer, both my Naturopath and my Oncologist say I can’t do estrogen therapy, but only testosterone. I have been researching the topic from different weight gain is unacceptable to me. My sister had a hysterectomy last year and gained alot of weight in her abdomen, hips, and butt. She was always tiny. My next step is to get bloodwork done to check my thyroid, hormone levels, etc. I will continue to battle this bulge, as I am determined NOT to get fat, but to get my lean abs and small waistline back. Research shows that determination is the one crucial factor in achieving success in life. So just call me “Determined”. ☺
Don’t give up on yourselves.
