    I was talking with someone the other day about how hard it is for me to get more toned and they told me not to worry about that because I'll "fill out" in a couple of years.

    According to them everyone has a "natural weight curve" and they start to look more toned by a certain age. For some guys it's 18 others it's a bit later.

    Though, I'm almost 25 and for a guy my height I'm really underweight. I don't believe people just "fill out" at a certain age without doing some exercise and hitting the gym.

    He also told me to not eat too many carbs and starches because that could make your blood pressure go up and/ or cause you to gain more weight than you want when your metabolism slows down.

    I'm barely eating the required amount of calories I should be having everyday (which I'm getting conflicting opinions about) so I'm not sure if I believe that either.

    You and I are about the exact same size to weight ratio. Im 6-3, 155. I was around 130 by time I turned 18. Im now 48 and 155. I havent gained any "fat", it was just from normal routine over my lifetime. I have had a gym membership for about 8 yrs now. I do go regurlaly and Im toned up or defined, but not "bulked". I find it hard also to bulk up. I would like to get around 170-180, but it seems That may never happen. I can eat just about anything and not gain a pound, And can eat large amounts of food in one meal. Ive been satisfyed with my body and Im pround that i can still wear clothes from 25 yrs ago. And as long as my waist is smaller then my chest, then im happy. However I would like to see larger arm mass and lower leg development (calves, etc). My very long legs look thin due to there length. But yet I can leg press well around 300lbs.
