I do, but I'm not really looking for or wanting for a gf.

I started lifting/running and taking care of myself because I was feeling like shit. I started falling deeper into my depression, smoking more, drinking more, just throwing my body to the wayside. It needed to stop, or I really was going to kill myself.

You don't lift for a gf, or for anyone other than yourself.

GOMAD is beyond retarded.

I seriously doubt you have some rare genetic condition preventing you from gaining weight. Just eat properly and track your macros for a couple of weeks........Or, keep drinking titty juice, become a phlegmy cunt, and develop horrible acne.

I don't go to the gym but work out with dumbbells ans stuff at home, about 4-5 times a week. I also play Basketball and try to generally stay fit. I've always been a skinny guy.

Workout harder and eat more calories. The key to building size over time is progressive overload. If you're training properly you will outgrow your dumbbells very quickly and need to find a gym to keep progressing.

As with the gomad 'tard, it is unlikely that you have a genetic disadvantage, you just need to do things properly.

I've gotten pretty fit, but i'm still scared to go out and actually talk to any women. Not that it matters, if a woman spent much time around me she'd realize how fucking broken I am and dump me.

>>
>>26327053
You will limit yourself if you avoid gyms at all costs, unless you want to invest in your own equipment and weights. You won't look like the hulk unless you really try too, it's highly unlikely that you will accidentally get too big (this is what girls often think). It will also take a long time, and your goals will probably change once you start making some gains.

"work out with dumbbells and stuff at home"

this sounds like you do 2 sets of curls and call it a day. unless you have godly genetics, you aren't going to look big unless you're doing a regular full body routine. eating a good diet with enough protein is equally important, maybe even moreso.

I'm a bit more on the "what I bring to the table" side. Can't have dreams of a fit chick with a squat butt if I'm not rather fit myself.

Not saying you're wrong but I have been on 4500kcal diets and I still had difficulties getting above 70kg. Took me 4 years to get from 59kg to 73kg, and I'm still skinny with my height of 183cm. Never lost my abs either.
Meanwhile my friend thinks he's awesome and cool for lifting 20% more than me when he started out at 100kg 30% body fat.

There is a limit to how much muscle you can put on before you get diminishing returns
Dont worry about it. If you think youre getting too big, you can increase your reps to 12-15 and do a maintenance routine. Regardless, ive been lifting seriously for 3-4 years and still havent hit that point yet.

All the motherfuckers in that pic are ugly. Using the gym to try to make up for an ugly face is only going to result in disappointment. Pic related.

You don't need a condition to be on GOMAD, it's just a super easy way to get calories and protein into your diet. Cheap as well. I'm not that guy but I always thought I ate a lot, until I actually started counting my calories, was very surprised at how little I was actually getting.
Milk certainly helped. And it's not intended as a lasting solution to being underweight, but it sure helps
>>
>>26327500
It will only work at the start. To continue getting stronger or bigger, there needs to be progressive overload which is hard/impossible with bodyweight exercises.

can't you progressive overload with just doing more of the same exercise? How swole could you get just using calisthenics?
>>
>>26327523
it just has to become a part of your everyday routine. you can't get too stressed over it and have to realize that there are lots of people who use gear and lie about it, say they don't, and give people false hopes for what they can achieve with no drugs

it's pretty depressing really, but the average guy's realistic natty limit (as in not lifting for a decade to gain another 5-10lbs) is smaller than a lot of gearhead chads who have fucked a lot of girls you could potentially know

Metabolic acidosis is also an issue when consuming dairy.

You would be far, FAR better off if you switched it out for homemade smoothies and shakes, as an easy way to consume calories. This doesnt have to be expensive either, you can use loads of oats (decent for protein), bananas etc.

In comparison to to homemade shakes, which can be both healthy and highly calorific, milk is absolutely shit-tier.
>>
>>26327591
You're gonna need some weights if you want much mass. Pullups and sometimes dips are the only calisthenics you see bodybuilders do.
>>
>>26327591
doing more of the same weight might build endurance but it isn't going to add a significant amount of mass
>>
>>26326607
I literally can't gain weight unless I eat 3,800 calories every day. I've been tracking them EXTREMELY closely. I have a stomach condition that makes me throw up if I eat that much, no matter what I do. The only thing I can do to get that many calories every day is to drink them.

And I would again have the same recommendation. You must have a fast metabolism, but milk isn't really healthy in any way and is not optimal if you're looking to optimise your health or body.

You can still drink a large amount of calories, protein, and other overlooked micronutrients by making shakes. Just throw in a load of oats, bananas, peanut butter, syrup, whatever else. This will again be very calorific, but it is much healthier and tastier than milk.
>>
>>26327777

American here, I slug half a gallon almost every day, and nothing bad has happened for about 2 years. That fag is probably a fucking vegan.
>>
>>26327847
Right, but there is every chance you could be even healthier.

There's no nutrient in milk that can't be found elsewhere. But, unlike milk, much of the other natural sources of calcium aren't loaded with hormones, bovine estrogen, and antibiotics.

You're also probably quiet young. There are population studies which I can't be bothered to find right now which demonstrate that countries who consume more dairy have higher instances of hip fractures (proxy for bone deterioration) later in life. This is because of metabolic acidosis, your body will leech calcium out of your bones and muscle to buffer it.

Cow titty juice is shit tier and most people interested in health and nutrition accept this.

The reason you're 6'3 is likely down to genetics, not cow titty juice.

No one claims milk will make you drop dead, or that you will manifest serious ailments quickly (if at all). But it's not 'healthy', there are far better sources of calcium that don't have any of the potential associated health risks, i.e leafy greens. There is nothing magical about milk, no special molecule.
