Now my diet may seem like a joke, but it really aint..i always was a "picky eater"...and didnt really ever like food...no wonder i was always skinny.....

..now i eat like a mad man...i eat a pound and a half of beef a day, 2 omega-3 eggs, 6 ounces of almonds, 2 ounces of english walnuts, 10 good sized bananas, and about 3 quarts of OJ......everyday and have for about 6 months....i havent got fat...i've actually lost weight...will this keep me growing muscle or what.??????????

How much do you weigh? How many cals are you eating? If you've lost weight, then you're might be in a calorie deficit. And a calorie deficit will obviously not help keep your muscles growing.

If you wanna grow,a god place tos tart would be to add in a few cups of pasta or rice, and fire up at least one good protein shake per day..

Once ya post the rest of your stats, we can analyze it further ;-)

Well i eat throughout the whole day...like for breakfast 8 am i eat 1 egg, and about 5 ounces of beef, and a little over an ounce of almonds an probably about 2/5 oz of walnuts...and then about 30 minutes later i eat two good sized banana(or thier equivilent)..followed by a few cups of OJ and some water...and i do that five times a day(some of the beef is "pre-cooked"..always home-cooked though)...i eat at about 8,11,2,5,8..with exrta OJ at the very end.........and a few cups in the middle of the night...

...and well i havent ate at this "intensity" for the whole time...just since i started working out...before my diet was the same just not as much..like missing 4 or 5 ounces of nuts, a half pound of beef, no eggs, not enough bananas or OJ...i was sporting a 39 inch waist on my 5'8" frame..and decided id just go with somekind of "paleodiet".....

....i dont know what i weigh now, i dont have any scales, as i would weigh myself "obssesivley" to see if had "grown any"...but i probably weigh about 175 maybe 180, i still have a "little fat" on my waist at 33 inches...and some on my chest as well(not hardly any..i can pinch a good inch though at the nipple..)..so that makes me weigh a little more...and i do have some muscle mass my arm is at about 14 inches right now( mostly tricep though)...and my chest is a mere 41 inches...my soulders and neck are good though, my legs are short and i have a long torso and arms, and broad shoulders for a 5'8" character...so im not all that little..anymore..........
