Hi this is reisrocks,
I'm 26, been working out since Feb. (7 months) and I have an honest question; how am I doing?
This is me with no artificials, I get bigger on creatine, but I haven't taken it in over a week. So this is really my bottom line since I'm not even pumped.
I'm starting to wonder if I am a hard gainer? I've got a sitting job, and have been doing the wrong moves nutrition-wise (eating pork and drinking soja milk, Ididn't know - doh).
Honest feedback awaited.
you're doing fine, just keep eating. What does your typical day of eating look like?

stop with the excuses
I believe that when the body is strong, the mind thinks strong thoughts. Time spent away from the Iron makes my mind degenerate. I wallow in a thick depression. My body shuts down my mind.

I live in the uk too mate and i find it easiest to try and drink 4 pints of semi-skimmed milk a day on top of my meals. Even if i only eat 3 decent sized meals a day as long as i get that milk down between meals then im safe (just over a pint has about 20g protein, about the same in carbs and about 10g fat). Even better if you get some pb and fruit down with it. What does your routine look like?

Looking at your pics, you need protein and calories to pack on mass. Get some powdered whey to mix in with your "limited food supply in the UK". I like vanilla, goes with pretty much everything. I am sure if your resourceful you can come up with some things.
I did not say whey was the answer. I mentioned calories before you did. He said good quality food is limited in the UK. Therefore he should supplement with protein since he is not getting it from his food. Unless quote, he can become "resourceful". Sorry, but I know I am not steering him in the wrong direction. "As I know your not either".I dont agree with this, powdered whey is not the answer, extra carbs and increased calories. I live in Ireland and were paying out our holes for everything and I can afford to eat what i want. just think calories man, wholegrains, veg, meat, nuts, and lots of water.

Start taking in some shakes, seriously the easiest way to get calories and protein in. 2 Cups whole milk, whey, 4 tsp natty PB, olive oil..etc, can easily down 1200+ calories in 1 minute. Also, get some McDonalds in if you must.
Bro i live in London and i work part time in a hotel and can still afford to buy loads of tuna, cottage cheese, milk, weight gainer protein, chicken breasts and minced meat (lean). You can find them at reasonable prices from supermarkets like SOmerfield, Tesco, Butchers ( i eat halal only though so it should be even easier for you to buy cheaper meat from SM) anyways good luck bro looking good
