    Many of the cranky guys don't understand that if you overttrain, fail to eat, and rest, your testosterone approaches zero and you go backwards. Less is better. Training for sarcoplasmic hypertrophy is different from training for muscular hypertrophy.

    Untrained folks, given proper calories (e.g. college football training tables) can make HUGE gains, until they hit that set point where they need more androgen or more calories or more training volume.

    If you eat a couple times a day, and aren't even bringing on base calorie requirements, you sure can't make gains.

    Lots do not quite understand those points.

    Congratz. For my part, I haven't gained a single pound in a year. Working out 3-4 times a week, eating 5 meals a day and lots of protein, protein shakes after workout and before bed most of the time, just nothing.. But losing weight for me is so easy.. it pisses me off but I can tell you that every single women are jealous when I tell them that lol

    E.g.: your setpoint is stuck. You NEED carbs, you need fats, and...if you aren't gaining, you need more calories, if gaining is your goal.

    Now, there are some medical problems like hyper-thyroid that will keep you from gaining. If you think it's that, get yourself checked.
