    So this kind of two parted first what are some tips to build muscle tone up even more quickly? I've lost a lot of weight an now want to build and tone. I lost about 34 or so lbs in about 7-8 weeks which I spent like every day twice a day to do so I could do it quick so I need some tips for phase two: Muscle.

    How can I do this quickly but also with light freaking out that I'm getting bigger or seeing the scale go up. I analyze everything that goes into my body now to be honest I'm pretty terrified of gaining weight.

    Second question tied in I want pec implants and I didnt see a big issue with it until someone I was kind of seeing basically ended things because of me scheduling a consult and me desire to have them. I didn't realize this was a big deal do guys frown upon cosmetic enhancements in the gay world? Would that be a turnoff to y'all?

    Not if it looks natural but I guess from what I can see, to each its own. Adding, most gay guys are all about physical perfection, usually but who isn't. Even heteros are the same way. It has to do with makes you feel better about yourself, the hell to what others think, you can't please everyone and why should you? You'll drive yourself crazy trying to.

    Pec implants? Why not spend a few years building up your chest the old fashioned way?

    You've got a great body, JM. I think the risks of any cosmetic surgery (scars, changes to your proportions, your own natural growth, and risks associated with anesthesia) you could have WAY outweigh the possible benefits. icon_razz.gif

    seriously dude, you sound like the opposite version of everyone who wants to lose all the weight they took years to gain gone in 30 days so they ahve the perfect body with just some light exercises and a few "weight loss" pills. Gaining is no differnt than losing: it take time and patientce and (even taking teststerone into account) there are NO shortcuts. Pec implants won't do anything for you if you don't have the rest of the body to go with and, you can risk injury if you are ever in a fight or even a car wreck and hit hard enough in that area.

    You want to gain mass, increase you caloric intake of good foods (and a SMALL amount of crap stuff (everyone loves a pizza once in agreat while), do some heavy lifting at higher weight and lower reps (proper form is a must or you are wasting your time) or do increasing weight/decreasing reps sets. But there is no short cut or quick fix to getting big: it's all about hard work, hard eating and discipline.

    Thanks for the input, I have the discipline its the eating that is hard for me I get anxiety when it comes to food I've been on such a low calorie diet. And I need to break away from all the cardio it sounds.

    poor guy. it sounds like everythings backwards.
    if you eat a healthy diet you don't have to constantly count calories or be anxious about food.

    and im sorry but plastic surgery is out of the question, why would you ever think you needed it? you can build muscle.

    less tanning... more practicing patience.

    I guess I should have stated, I just didn't want to put all my business out there, but I had a reduction on my chest when I was 18 I wasn't fat but I had a really pointy large chest verging on boobs. So as I work my chest now it doesn't quite do what I want and I'm also fearful it wont look right that's why I just want implants...however if guys are going to judge that I don't want it either so there's a dichotomy there. As for food I do eat healthy but even then I get anxiety and I have a lot of guilt, I'll be honest now that I've lost weight I know its bad but I eat like maybe once a day and its something like a can of tuna since its protien and 50calories. So i've been reading eating is important in toning but I need to know what to eat so it doesn't feel like eating or is there something i can drink instead?

    OP I get where you are coming from, I never had much of a chest, when i first started working out seriously, I lost weight and had 'pointy kind of breasts" I got a little concerned but after 8 months now they are starting to get better shape. I kept telling my trainer I was getting boobs and he assured me all was ok, and it is.
    On the point of implants there are some horror stories around about guys that went too big and now look like they have boobs.
    I would wait it out, keep working hard, your still at an age where things are a bit easier to manipulate, look at working out as a long term strategy.

    There are a lot of risks with implants: scar tissue, encapsulation, infection. Why not try to build up first?
