how's your training routine like?

Why are you eating candy?
White bread blows, try wheat, rye, or whole grain.
1 glass of water? Try going for 8.
Try cottage cheese before bed.
If you're looking to add calories try a weight gainer shake. I suggest Russian bear - http://www.bodyconcept.com/family/1051/display.html

are you eating candy bar everyday? and those 2 slices of apple pie with ice-cream? *drools*

11-14-2005, 04:47 PM
No the apple pie was just today and whats so wrong with one candy bar i dont eat much junk.
Are candy bars counter productive to weight gain.

Thanks again

17 lbs... a lot of that would be fat. I don't think you'll be able to gain 17 lbs of muscle im that amount of time. Try a clean bluk... unless you're a ectomorph or w/e then I'd say you're fine.. chow down.

11-14-2005, 04:51 PM
nothing wrong with having a candy bar once and awhile,but everyday, alot of artifical junk and unwanted sugar in your diet. I would rather have some natty pb with apple seems to be very popular amongst here :p

11-14-2005, 04:52 PM
Yes born quite thin, how much lean muscle could i gain by christmas?

11-14-2005, 04:54 PM
Try a pound a week. 2 if you're lucky. If you're and ectomorph you can probably gain noticable mass fast but all things take time.

11-14-2005, 04:57 PM
So maybe about 7 Kilos by christmas or around that.

Thanks for advice.
