Ask a former anorexic brah anything
pics are from age 15/16 when I was sickest until age 23. From around 17-20 I was a stoner and still didn't eat much, top right pic is where the lifting started and my progress from then
were you worried bout your protruding rib cage? I have a similar rib cage to yours and I was really worried what it would look like when I cut
Similar to you, I was about 130 when I started, 200 now at 6'1, not as sick cunt as you are tho. Good shit.
1/2gomad 4 meals a day w/ snacks, don't bother eating clean, if you have a hard time keeping on weigh
You will make it brah, just gotta endure the rough and stay positive throughout it all. If I could go back I would force myself into a positive mindset (I do it all the time now when I'm having a bad day) because a lot of the time I was miserable
Ty brahs. In the pics, top left probably 80-90lbs, 5'4", bottom pics I was 5'5-5'6, 144lbs. Probably stunted my growth from not eating but fuk it brehs.
I'm currently about 160-170lbs after bulkan pretty hard since the Summer, best lifts so far are:
3x3 pause bench: 100kg
3x5 squat: 170kg
1x3 DL: 180kg
3x5 OHP: 62.5kg
Not sure what these are in pounds. I get told by my PL gymbrah that I have really good leverages and should compete. He said if he was my height he'd bulk up hard and compete but I value my physique too much
Eat a lot, if you can't eat make a mass gaining shake (PB, oats, protein powder/mass gainer, and so on). Track your calories for at least for a while using myfitnesspal and a food scale to make sure you're eating enough every day to gain. I've only had trouble gaining weight once I reach like 15% bf where I just buy chocolate milk to bring me to a surplus
Never really thought about it, only thing I got worried about was my abs got way too thick from cable crunches and all the deadlifts and squats. My chest isn't that great so I was paranoid about looking weird
Also my best advice would be:
If you're planning any type of transformation, don't put your life on hold for the gym. Don't go "cocoon mode". For a while the gym made me reclusive, I wouldn't go out or even eat with my family because I was tracking my macros too closely.
You want fitness to enrich your life and not hold you back. Just a thought for anyone who has an obsessive nature like me
Thank you bro. Yeah I'm natty, I was actually about to jump on test enthate and dbol at one point but I couldn't find anywhere to get my blood work done to do it sensibly.
In the end I got paranoid about fucking up my health and didn't bother. I'm glad I didn't, I just want this to be a hobby more than anything and not the only thing I value in life
