    so u mean 6 meals, and with each one of those do a small pre-meal, or do the pre-meals count as a meal?

    Pre-meals count as a meal.

    Just remember to eat a light meal (half sandwich, peice of fruit etc) 30 mins to an hour before eating a larger meal.

    This way your body will naturally get hungry every 2 hours or so.

    Damn, I am 5'4 and 132 and I am trying to gain mass, at least for my frame. The doctor says that the maximum healthy weight for my frame and age (21) is 135, but I don't really know for sure. I know Mugsy Bogues is 5'3, and he was 135 in the NBA but had a LOT more mass than me.

    So with that...I somewhat have your problem, even though I just started training for real two weeks ago. I used to always do the typical push ups and arm curls, and I would try to eat, but I just can't force myself to at all, and I don't think many people can understand that. However, I seem to gain weight when I am at home with my parents and they are always cooking for me. In college, I am out of state, and I don't go to the cafeteria so I have to depend on cooking and eating out, and I am hungry most of the day but don't have anything to eat. For some reason, I can eat a lot more than I used to, especially in high school and my early years of college.

    How old are you though? One thing I find interesting is that most older people laugh at us young ones for wanting to gain weight, when 98% of those over 40 are trying to lose weight, and they always tell us "you better appreciate being skinny and not having to feel heavy". I believe em too, but for my height I gotta at least be cut.

    I'm an ectomorph, gaining weight is a bitch.

    R-tistic, don't up threads where the last post is older than 30 days. Thanks.
