    Hello!

    Well, from my readings on the Internet, I am an ectomorph: someone who is extremely skinny and has a hard time gaining weight. I wanted to know if it is wise to buy protein supplements now even though I don't do that much exercise. I just dont wanna look this "bony",

    Has anyone dealt with a similar situation?

    Dude, you're NOT an ectomorph if the 2nd pic in your profile is you.

    What's your height and weight?

    Many mesomorphs have trouble gaining weight at your age.

    It's a million times better being bony (which you're not) than skinny fat. Having a fast metabolism is a much better problem to have than having a slow one.

    Being naturally lean is an advantage you will treasure once you become a seasoned bodybuilder. You will effortlessly keep a single digit body fat while your peers will have to do drugs and big sacrifices so that maybe, during a few months of the year, they can have what you have for free.

    I don't think you need to buy protein supplements. If you want to increase your calorie intake, there are weight gain products.

    Well, I was checking your profile pics and my body is exactly the way yours was in 2008! Even your collar bone back then is similar to the way mine looks right now! The pic I have in my profile can be somewhat deceiving - angling my body just slightly gives the impression that I am bigger than I actually am. By the way, I'm 5ft7 and weight around 123lbs.

    To be entirely honest, I want the same body as bachian's. That is my goal. I assume you will still look good in 50 years icon_smile.gif

    Oh, and by the way, thank you so much for all your answers! I see all these amazing hot bodies on this website and it feels kind of sad having this twink-like body... icon_smile.gif
