Skinny Dude
Hi everyone new to this or any other forum. 28yo male, 5'9" 140lbs, 6% body fat.

I've been reading alot of articles about naturally thin people putting on mass but I'm having an insanely disappointing start.

Last week I ate between 3,500-3,950 calories and running 2 days a week and lifting 3 days. Here's what I figured:
1,950 calories used just by subsisting
450 calories avg/day for 45 minute workout
300 calories from a crazy metabolism
That totals 2,700 calories needed a day. For almost two weeks by this math I had a 1,000 calorie surplus daily yet I am STILL down 2lbs from two weeks ago.

How is this possible? Is it that I am burning fat? Anyone ever heard of someone's metabolism being this fast? I appreciate any advice ahead of time!

Stop running?

You may want to cut back on your cardio and do full body workouts.

Just eat a lot and by a lot i mean that you should be afraid of the amount of food you eat

my views
1. perhaps you would like to try 3 times a week Single Set Full Body workout that consist of only Compound Exercises.

Bench Press
Wide Grip Lat Push-down
One Arm Dumbbell Row
Shoulder Press
Air Bike

2. Cut down on Cardio (2 times a week on non training days)

3. go to w w w . gain - weight - muscle - fast . c o m

good luck

Start eating more ?

I think you actually burn calories after you finish running - I saw a BBC documentary so I'm assuming there was scientific evidence. You might have been burning much more than usual throughout the day

You need to eat the food include fat and mass. The good thing is that you could any thing of any amount. Eat and eat more.

Every time I go to eat a meal I think of this exact statement!!!
