Why is it so hard for some people to gain weight?
Do they just not enjoy eating?
That's it right there
Their enjoyment of eating is low
I think everyone likes to eat, but they probably have never really loved eating, and gotten their stomachs used to eating small amounts their whole life
Half conditioning/half attitude
I can't decide if that's good or bad. On one side, I'd like to want to gain weight, because then I'd be able to eat as much as I want. On the other side, I want to enjoy eating, and it sounds like to get to that point, you have to not really enjoy it.
literaly just stuff yourself and train right
you can force it lol
That's what I'm thinking, too
It sucks, I'm like that too
tfw can gain or lose weight without any real effort 🤔
I don't get what's stopping people who need to gain weight from just feasting on their favorite foods unless they genuinly just don't like eating
bulking on college student budget is not optimal
I'm bulking on 50 dollars a week fam
"tfw can gain or lose weight without any real effort thinking"
dat mesomorphic build
On hour 24 of snake juice fast. Hungry but not famished. A little something like thirst but I don't feel dehydrated. Haven't urinated in a while so I haven't tested ketones yet. Very autistic.
Going for at least 48. So maybe dinner tomorrow?
I did over 48 hours. Keep up with the snake juice.
I'm at about 24. I finally started feeling like I'm not incredibly fatigued and am feeling good. Mental clarity is up. Gonna go for a run here in a bit
I am recovering from a mild neck injury so I can't work out quite yet. I'm fasting in part to mitigate the damage.
Can you go for walks?
Great time to listen to podcasts, get fresh air, and burn calories.
I could. I fell and hit my head last Monday (8 days past). Used to lift and do HIIT.
Wishing you a speedy recovery, man. Try walking. Not even fast, but just getting out and moving around somewhere enjoyable. Helps add that little extra caloric burn.
Thanks. Might be doing an MRI at the end of the week. Hopedully cleared to lift at lower weight and jog soon.
Might swim if that is an option.
I hope everything looks good and you can get back to the grind, bro!
Definitely feeling hungry this morning but haven't had any snake juice yet
I didn't get much sleep last night, so I had black plain coffee this morning. I guess that tech ically broke my fast but I haven't had anything else. Going to have a big fatty dinner and then go another 48hr until dinner on Friday.
wait why is someone that's like 6'9 fasting this aggressively. You mean to tell me you're that tall and not a lanklet? oy vey
I slept really well but I had some coffee some this morning too. It doesnt "technically" break the fast, but the snake diet guy doesnt like it because it raises cortisol levels.
@Deleted User I got a belly and a fat butt. But I am fasting due to a neck injury that's keeping me from lifting, etc
And a double chin (press F)
Had a big keto meal. maybe too big. Now that I got 48 hour fast done, trying for 72. MRI scheduled for Tuesday, so hopefully cleared to lift soon after.
Is it pointless to fast if you have one big ass meal before bed.. I had 2 beefy tacos, a plum, and some milk.. I don't think I'm in a calorie surplus since I've fasted all day and because of football practice but maybe I should tone it down..
