I have like no fat on me so i was wondering if i should really adhear to the only healthy fruits and protein, i feel like i could use the carbs lol
well you still want to eat good foods because putting on unhealthy lbs is still not gonna benefit you much.
i read a lot of articles on body building.com and your post brings one to mind that i have read...
Weight gain 101 I hope this helps - Bodybuilding.com Forums
there is some great advice for someone of your body type (Ectomorphs)
i am a Mesomorph and have been out of shape for too many years. I had become chubby in a lot of areas and had jumped to a 22% b/f%. I have lost 20lbs while putting on a ton of muscle and have dropped from 22% b/f to around 16% right now. It took me a long time to change the way my body burned my food... anything i ate effected my body weight terribly, i was terrible about gaining weight. Now after months of training I have gotten to where even though I eat pretty clean most of the time, if I just say eff-it and actually eat not so great my weight doesnt fluctuate like it used to. My weight usually fluctuates 2 lbs at max now due to water % in my body. I am still trying to cut down to 180lbs, but i got on this weight lifting thing lately more so that usually and decided i was gonna start really lifting hard and i completely put a stop to my weight loss..LOL
