TerraFirma saidWould you say it is "easier" for a "shorter" person to be fit than one who is taller? Is there a relationship, if so why do you think, or why not? Or no relevance at all? It just seems to me that those who are shorter (than me) tend to have really tighter, ripped bodies.
Generally taller people need to eat more calories to maintain their body weights than shorter people, so I'd imagine it being a little harder for them to eat even more calories to gain muscle (unless they have a slow metabolism). Just a theory, though.
The taller you are, the more calories you need to maintain body mass. So if you want to add body mass, you need to add more calories.
The shorter you are, the less calories you need to maintain body mass, "" "".
So for a taller person to look proportionately the same as a shorter person, he basically needs to eat more the get the same results as a shorter person who eats less.
