    I am way too skinny (short life story)

    January 9, 2019, 12:32 am

    Hello, @scott_herman

    I am addicted to videogames since kid, it has been 22 years of gaming already... a long run. I am currently 30 years old and i am full with thoughts and fears, social anxciety and depression sometimes. All this led me to fail exams in school or being unable to find work and the worst, my body is in a horrible skinny shape. I can literally eat one meal and a banana per day and feel fine. I am 196cm(6'4") tall and my weight is 56kg(123 libs).

    The time for a change has come. I was really excited when you announced the FULL BODY EVOLUTION program and i've been waiting for it. But also i am in doubt, since i don't have stable money income to buy all the food needed, nutrition complements, gym and also for the Plat membership i wanted to ask you for advice. Should i focus on my food plan first and after gaining 15-20 kg(≈40 lbs) to start with your new workout plan ?

    Thanks for reading.

    @davidgits Hey man!

     

    I would definitely focus on getting your eating right first. I don't think you need to wait until you have gained 15 - 20kgs before you start training, but you do need to make sure you have a good @mealplan before you start training, otherwise you won't be making the most of your time in the gym. You will see gains no matter what when you start, but to make them as good as they can be, you need to be eating enough.

     

    Generally you can get some good bulking foods fairly cheap, it just means you might have to eat a lot of the same foods. For example rice is usually fairly cheap and a good source of carbs, oats and potatoes too.

     

    I'm not sure what the price of chicken is like where you are? But it can be reasonably cheap in bulk sometimes. Fats can sometimes get a little pricey when you buy nuts and seeds, but maybe you could find some cheap-ish nuts and peanut butter and extra virgin olive oil to cook your food in.

     

    Those are just some basic ideas, you can check out this full list too and see what might fit your budget! https://muscularstrength.com/article/healthy-shopping-list-for-life

     

    So if you can get the @mealplan on point, then you can start Full Body Evolution ASAP!

    Thanks for the reply, the motivation is the hardest part in my life. I get none, but i really want to try this time, i am thinking to set alarams on my phone every 3 hours to remind me of eating something, that would be a good start i guess.

    @davidgits Yeah man if you have to, set those alarms because sometimes you need a reminder to actually eat. If you're focused on something else like work it's really easy to skip a meal. The alarms will help to keep you on track!
