hurdel400 saidI have been slim all my life and have always had trouble with putting on weight. I have tried protien shakes and eating more to balance out my fast matabalism but nothing has worked so far. I wanna gain weight in the right way withmuscle and not fat, which is what happend when I used the prtien shakes. I could see that I was gaining weight but it was fat weight. Any one have any suggestions on how I can gain some weight and look a lil bit more buff?
I have the same problem as you. When you're really slim you tend to have a negative view of fat, to the point where you don't eat properly. (I can say so for myself, and it's been a struggle).
What I realized was fat is good if it is healthy fat. So I developped a strict diet for myself where I have to eat the food I prepared for each day... about 5-6 small meals/large snacks with plenty of water. I made sure to include good fats from flax, nuts/seeds, and fish.
You're right - when we start eating better we will put on a bit of fat weight. This is normal. It looks and feels more drastic because we are skinny as hell, but your body needs the fat if it wants to build the muscles in the first place.
So my advice is to plan out a diet that has all the nutrients you need and a good balance of fat, protein, carbs, and stick to a good exercise routine. The rest is dedication and patience. It takes a long time to see major results...
