Hi, I'm very new to body building, I'm 21 years old, and I'm 6'0, 165lbs. When I started working out, I was 145lbs. I've been this weight/height this I was about 14. The deal is. I eat like a horse. I eat about 10 times a day. I can down three foot long subs from quiznos in fifteen minutes. I can eat through three pizzas, and I'm fine. I don't gain weight, I'll maybe lose or a gain a pound, but I'm always around 145lbs. My mom made me take vitamins and such due to the fact I eat basically junk food 24/7. I eat complete crap, I live off a diet of pizza, microwaved dinners, and sushi. I eat constantly, almost all the time. I want to know if this is ''okay.'' A good friend told me that even though I have a high metabolism, my diet can still interfere with my ability to work out and put on muscle mass. He said even though I take supplements it might not be enough. I was curious as to how this might affect me in a positive/negative way. will my diet of junk food and the fact that I don't put on weight unless I work out cause problems? even though I do take supplements? I hear from the trainers at the gym, diet is essential.
