Dude, spend less time retorting others on the interwebz and more eating; the annual window for bulking is ending fast...

What on earth are you talking about?

And FYI: I eat a lot, and it all goes through me faster than you can say next meal. (my BMI is perfect, btw)

What are your stats, I wonder...?

I do not believe people who say they eat a lot and are still extremely skinny. Your body is a machine and although fat people might blame it on their nature, we all know that only goes so far. If you wanted to gain weight you could-- have some extra cottage cheese, etc. I find it especially suspect when people who are extremely thin feel the need to constantly mention how thing they are-- clearly they are proud of the fact.

For BBers bulking season is winter / cold seasons. Spring/Summer are for cutting since everyone hits up the beach and wants to show their 6 packs.

I'm your height and 143lbs as of last night. Should have been more had I gone out of the country the whole last month and got sick afterward. I was ~123lbs about 12-14 months ago.

Oh, since we all know you're obssessed w/ others' aesthetic stats and all, I have a 37" chest and 28" waist.

In South Florida, it's always Beach season!

And I was just wondering your stats, I don't recall ever asking for anyone else's...hardly obsession (what a curious word to use...).

As well instead of saying: "˜hey you know I used to weigh as much as you did, this is what I did to get bigger', you went straight into criticism mode.

This is completely wrong. I know lots of people who eat ridiculous quantities of food, often very fatty, and end up weighing very, very little.

I used to think I was one of those people. Then I realized I wasn't eating ridiculously enough.

5'8", 168 here. 9% bf about a month ago.

Alright, well then never say a word about fat people. It's true people have different metabolisms, but if you want to lose weight and you have slow metabolism-- eat less/excercise more. If you are so skinny that you are at concentration camp weight all the time-- then eat more/excercise less (or at least less cardio/more weights). It's complete nonsense to tell me you can't gain a pound. Have an extra meal, have some protien powder, etc.

Skinny guys are better at layering and they're always cold, so designers can sell them more clothes (the down vest over the sportcoat over the hoodie over the button down over the polo over the t-shirt -- and they're still thin). The skinny look is hard to pull off past your early to mid-30s.... you start looking like you've been dead for a week. Fat fills out wrinkles! I've love to see Lagerfeld's neck without his high collar shirt, I'm sure he'd make John McCain feel better!

I read this today... damn it, where was this 20 years ago when I was getting out of college at 6'3" weighing a whopping 135-140 lbs? I could have been a supermodel!

Read up on your fashion history, doofus.

< 100 lb for a girl is kind of a ridiculous standard... I know a handful of girls under 100 lb and they are almost exclusively Asian, and I live in LA... <shrug> nuff said.

Yeah, all through (and for a while after) college I was 6'1", 125. If someone had just introduced me to Hedi, I could have been on the runway for the best Dior Homme seasons! (Um... or something. We're going to pretend that weight's the only thing they're going on )

I dunno. Almost all the men that most women I know seem to gravitate toward are somewhere in between. Very low bodyfat, reasonably muscular, but not exactly "huge" or "jacked". Sometimes borderline skinny. See: Brad Pitt in Fight Club, Justin Timberlake, etc. Women who prefer really huge guys are probably just about as rare as women who prefer really skinny guys.

I remember back when girls like normal guys without big muscles and without their ribs showing. Those were the days.

What does the term "jacked" mean?
