    Haha, ouch what did you neck have to say about that.
    "Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education alone will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race." - John Calvin Coolidge

    Yes, that is completely true. I need to be eating exactly 9.858454938593k cals (any more will make me fat, any less wont let me gain). I'm one of the few very genetically gifted with an ectoendomesomorphic body type. It means I can't gain muscle, only gain fat - but have the potential to do so if I eat more, exactly the above amount. If it's not working then 5x5 with pink dumbells and I need to work on my form. But obviously I need to eat more.
