    For one, other men see you less of threat because of your skinny build. Since people find you non-threatening, they treat you nicely and somewhat fragile. another thing, you always find clothes that fit.

    People make assumptions about what you do or don't eat.

    The worse is when someone wants to eat junk and you don't so you get accused of anorexia. I don't even like pizza but every so often I end up eating it just to stop speculation.

    THANKYOU!!

    I'm one of those people that LOVES eating salad.
    I'd prefer one over a burger, pizza, or deep-fried food anyday.
    But, every time I order a salad in a restauarant, my friends make some stupid comment about me avoiding carbs or something, so I'll end up ordering something heavy instead. Just to stop them from commenting.

    Why would you do that? Why do you let them talk you out of what you want?
    I often have a salad for dinner when I go out too. No one comments, but if they did it wouldn't change my mind.

    Because it's easier than having people tell you that you have an unhealthy obsession with your weight etc.

    Practice saying the following phrase: "Thanks for your input." Then go do precisely whatever the hell you want.

    I agree with Jeff.. I love salads of various kinds. These days, friends of mine wouldn't dare make some bitchy comment about what I eat. I don't offer commentary on their order unless asked and if they do mine, they could get more "than they ordered" on the opinion menu in reverse.
    Something like, "I happen to care what I look and feel like". But the reality is, most of my friends like and appreciate what I do and wouldn't be critical.

    No whining, skinny guys. You're born with abs and keep 'em, and so what if you're hard gainers - 5 lbs on you looks like 20 on anyone else. You can eat anything you want and not gain a pound, you can wear almost anything and look great, and you score at the clearance rack where I can't find a pair of designer pants bigger than 31".

    That's not completely fair. My abs got better because I focus on them, if anything I'd kill to have bigger arms and pecs so my upper body matched my lower body muscles wise.

    But I second on what you eat and what people expect you to eat thing.

    What!?

    I'm guessing the quote is, "Nothing tastes as good as being skinny is/feels." icon_lol.gif

    They got better. But you could see them to begin with. You didn't have to deprive yourself to see them, and they don't disappear the moment you eat a carb.

    I notice you also do yoga and gymnastics. Try those when you're over 200 lbs. Not. So. Easy.

    That's not entirely true, but I sympathize regardless. Also anyone can do yoga weight has nothing to do with it. Gymnastics is pretty similar really, there's loads of guys who are 200 that can tumble. Both are like any other form of exercise regular practice allows you to do it.
