    it could take you up to a few years to achieve that body, and that's if you're eating right, exercising properly, and your genetics allow for it. you need to be eating more calories than you're burning if you want weight and ditch the fast food. also, time at the gym is not as important as the exercises and quality of the workout. can't give you advice without specifics.

    Rather than picking a picture out of a magazine, maybe you should just worry about improving yourself, as compared to your current state.

    Ditch the fast food, and any other microwavable meals, start building an exercise program- the ones available on this site are a good place to begin. 5-6 meals a day. Results won't happen overnight, but take pictures regularly so that you can see your progress.

    Don't try to look like a model. It's not realistic.

    What is your current height/weight etc? Set realistic goals. Inspirational visual aids are great but baby steps.

    I usually don't gain much weight -- genetics. But lately after less than 2 months taking whey protein (post workout) and casein protein shakes (before bedtime) -- with constant crossfit/other endurance training, I gained 6 pounds. I hope all is muscle mass icon_smile.gif I should know in a week with body fat test.

    Good luck kid ...

    Here's some advice of what I went through. I used to be 122lbs and 5'8 until my senior year in high school. I started by eating more frequently and working out 3-4 times a week. It wasn't until college that I really gained some weight. I am now about 160lbs and still 5'8..lol.

    The best advice is to eat eat eat. Try not to eat junk food. Eat a lot of protein, carbs, fruits/veggies ect. And I would work out different muscles on different days vs. the whole body, but either way works just as long as you really intensify the workout and rest well.

    Good luck!

    Actually one year is plenty, if you weight lift correctly, eat right, you can gain 30-40 lbs of muscle no problem (without steroid that is). The guy in the photo doesn't have huge bulking muscle but has very low body fat for the abs. Tony is most likely slim body type so once you bulk enough muscle it will be easy for you to cut down and pop those abs.

    Food: might want to stay away from fast food, they are calorie but not muscle building calorie. It is a good idea to make your own food, don't have to be fancy dishes, just food that fills you up and give your body nutrition to grow. Beef, dark leafy green, chicken, and berries(power food for bodybuilding). One most important thing about muscle building is diet, if you get it down correctly then you will gain result in no time.

    Workout: there are time saving workout plan that works just as well as 2hr pumping at the gym. The program I am doing now is full body workout every two day, with 1 day rest in between, and so far so good.

    Not trying to advertise here, but check out this website MuscleHack, you can download an ebook with detailed workout plan and some nutrition/calorie fact (free by the way). It's a great way to start, good luck Tony!

    It takes more than just protein to build muscle.
    For your protein intake, try to eat at least your body's weight in grams of protein (ie. 150 lbs = 150 grams, etc). Don't go more than ~1.5 times your body weight, though, because you'll just piss out the excess protein.
    Also up your carbs...I haven't learned the proper number for that, but I do know that if you're a hard gainer, it will take lots of carbs. Eat as much "fattening" stuff as you can, just steer clear of fried and heavily greasy foods.
    And last but not least (and was the hardest part for me): Learn to accept your body as it currently is. Once that is accomplished, it will increase your patience in reaching your ultimate goal. Patience is the key to fitness, as all gains are microscopic and take time to show in the mirror.

    Good luck! icon_biggrin.gif

    first you are very young and still have a lot of growing to do. The next four or five years will see you mature physically. Being slightly under weight can be a good thing.

    Change your eating habits to healthy foods. Food is the biggest drug you will take in for a life time and has the most dramatic affect.

    Do physical activity that you really enjoy so you can do it for a life time. Your goal should be a healthy good Tony physically and emotionally. If you run, play basketball or lift weights learn how to do it correctly. On weights find a good weight lifting partner or trainer that can help you get started in the right direction. Learn that working out or any physical activity is a life style you do to be good to Tony. Short term goals are prone to failure.

    Keep Meninlove in your best of friends list!!!! They are the best Fairy Godfathers! People like them whether your age or older are the ones you want in your life!

    Learn to see you and your world with great possibilities!

    Echoing all --

    Changing eating habit is key. Read up more on nutrition. I am not an expert here. But, I will be changing my eating lifestyle starting in a few days.

    Good luck...
