    I wish I had time to watch this right now... I've gained literally 1lb in the last 5 months eating 2500cal/day and going to they gym on a regular basis.

    Maybe it'd explain what's wrong with me. icon_sad.gif

    After eating 3500 calories all winter for a clean bulk I recognize a lot of their feelings. From the psych side I think there really is a strong physiological inclination for thin people to not eat a lot of food and its hard to keep on a regimen to do it. I'm looking forward to bulking again for the size but not to eating that much again haha.

    I have nine siblings, seven of them are half-siblings and only two of them are full ones sharing the same parents....

    OUt of all my siblings, ALL seven of my half-siblings have complained about gaining weight and have to do all kinds of things to manage their weight...

    HOwever, me and my two full brothers, all three of us only complain about staying slimmer than everyone and never having been able to gain weight no matter how much we eat... we have always hovered at about the exact same weight we have had since puberty....

    Considering the fact its only the thee full siblings from the same parents.. it makes it very likely to be a genetic trait....

    Incidentally, me and my brothers average weights are identical to that of the subjects in this study... (I am exactly 63 kg) and we've all tried to get the exact 15% body weight increase in this study... (we've always been told we should be 73 for out length)

    All of us failed, with the exception of my youngest sibling who gained the 15%, but within a week of reaching it fell ill with a serious flu and lost it all in a week's time, when the flu was over...

    I was the same way. Couldn't put on weight no matter how much food I ate. Then I hit 40, and now I can gain weight without even trying.

    Thanks for sharing, that was an awesome documentary. I've always wondered why I couldn't gain weight, plus I know the feeling of not wanting to eat anything once I'm full. It makes it hard to relate to people who want to eat all of the time.

    as i'm getting older, wiser and actually in better shape than ever, i've not reduced but changed the kind of food i eat.

    still this week, i emptied two jars of Dulce de Leche as a snack. I just swallow spoonful after spoonful of the stuff. icon_eek.gif

    Awesome documentary... I sent it to my sister and dad, who get on my brother for his weight. He is very overweight, but he has also had concerted periods where he exercised and ate right, and found it very hard to lose.

    Maybe this will be informative for them....
