Fitness tips? Badly Underweight

Recommended Posts

225 pounds at 5'10" is well over obesity level bmi

Yes and the BMI scale is horribly innacurate. Everybody is built differently. I'm not tall but not short. I'm not fat. I have less than 1% body fat. It's muscle on me. According to the scale I should weigh around 150 pounds. I would look like a skeleton at that weight.

BMI is worthless.  it doesnt take into account fat vs muscle(which weighs more).  so very fit short people can be considered "obese"

Exactly. My older brother only stands 5'5" and weighs 275 pounds. He's short, stocky and almost as wide as a door. According to the BMI index he's morbidly obese. But he isn't.

Im not sure if you're trolling but you don't have 1% body fat lol. Unless you are a dwarf or a giant, and not a bodybuilder, BMI is a good indicator. There's a 35 lbs span at your height to have a normal BMI which is a pretty big margin of error to account for different body compositions, and you are 50 lbs over the upper limit so far beyond any margin of error. 

 

This guy is 5'10" and probably around 225 lbs to slighty more in this picture

But he's on gear and fitness is his job. 

 

225 lbs at 5'10" is only normal if you have a warped sense of reality.

I mean the guy could look something like this, but he'd have to be heavy into the bodybuilding scene for that. And if that's the case, kudos to him:50c7fd49514f041d714119ceeda0f341.jpg.659ff883513c39fe9c93705fcb59e2f1.jpg

Plus these people gotta eat a lot of meals throughout a day. They could spend like $500 a day for food alone.

well the guy in pic is about ~200 pounds. checking with a tdee calculator(Disclaimer: this is a good resource, but is not percise as every human is different)  he needs about 3000 calories(assuming he lifts 3-5 times a week), even when you consider how much calories you need to lean bulk(only about 200-300, to gain 1-2 pounds a month, so you don't gain too much fat on top of that), It's not too bad to eat the amount of food required to look like that(IMO, but then again i can gulp down 2500 calories due to the gym and still not gain anything). However, you need to be committed(to bulking and gaining mass and be doing this for a good amount of time).

 

However, if this guy were to have a schedule like michael phelps or kobe bryant had(multiple cardio workouts throughout the day), that would be a different story

Like I said, unless you are a bodybuilder. And if you "don't really exercise", you will hardly look like that - it takes a few years of lifting and eating to get roid traps like that

First off, the whole BMI crap is based on a generalization.  There are factors like health history, genetics, and so much more that go into that.  My suggestion is to see a nutritionist to find a healthy plan for you, avoid the 99% bs supplements, and to calorie count your way with healthy foods and balanced meals.  My guess is that you're most likely not eating enough to keep your weight healthy.  If you wanna develop muscle both whey and creatine can help, but you really don't need supplements if you take in the right amount of protein for you.  You can also maybe get a good trainer too who doesn't bro train.  Also, there's no quick healthy way to get the results you probably want.  It takes time, dedication, and so on to build muscle properly.  A lot of bodybuilders lie their asses off and are really just using steroids.  The infomercial people are all full of shit hence why they're doing infomercials.  One other thing, you probably have a gym teacher.  Talk to them.

Still lift their asses off.

 

The guy in the last picture doesn't go twice a week for 45 mins. The other previous one either.

 

0,01% of the Instagram stars are natty tbh. Only famous Youtuber that's probably natty is Jeff Cavaliere.

I didn't look over the pictures, to be honest, and I don't really pay attention to youtubers for health advice.  I was also commenting more about something Arnold said.  He himself stated that he and a lot of competitive bodybuilders use/d steroids and made up lies over the years of how they "got their results".  Some were making ridiculous claims of excessive amounts of protein daily, but the thing is if you took in the amount of protein they were claiming then it would turn mostly into fat.

Carbohydrates are the key to weight gain. Breads, pastas, starchy foods, and sugary foods.

It's difficult to advise on how to gain weight in a healthy way because, for some people, they can eat healthy food all day until they feel sick and still not gain weight.

But as long as you're eating 3 balanced meals a day of healthy food which contain at least as many calories as you burn off then there's not really a problem with being under a certain weight, is there? So I wouldn't worry so much about being "badly underweight".

This sounds like a familiar story, I'm 6' 3" and approx. 55kg and have been for nearly 20 years (mid 30's now). Have tried things in the past but never noticed any real difference.

 

I'm interested to see if you manage your goal.

Jesus, i just can't grasp the fact you're like 5 inch taller than me and under half m weight. Just with a quick guestimate you'll be needing like 3.5kish cal a day with a 3/4 day workout week. Only problem is 3k or more cals a day = hefty food bill / week.

You should gain weight healthily

- Eat good-for-health foods. For example, vegetables, fruits, meat.

- Have many meals per day. Eat whenever you feel hungry.

- Do excercise. It's good for your health and increase your hunger for food :)

- Be positive. Smile often as it helps with your good health and mind

- Avoid eating while playing games, watching TV, or doing other tasks. I have a bad habbit of gaming (now on mantigames) and eating along the way. I know it won't do any good to my stomach in the long run.

- After eating, take a light rest. Don't sleep or do other things right away.

- Take multivitamins

- Have enough sleep - This is VERY important

- Don't be stress out too much over trivial things. And don't overthink them.

 

Hope it helps! You can do it!!

So im a 17 year old that stopped doing any physical activity at around my 14, and this new years my resolution was to grow muscle as fast as i can(in a healthy way) and gain weight, any advice?

Im 17 (as already mentioned)

I weight 120 pounds

And im 6 ft tall

And i know that 120 for a 6ft guy is not good

 

I started doing excercise and stuff 

But for you to have an idea, my first day of excercise was on January 2 and i could barely do 15 push ups, now as of today(feb 5) i can do 45-50

But still no weight gain, im stuck at 118-122 pounds 

Pls help 

Thanks

 

Actually, if anything, doing a lot of exercise will make you lose more weight (Calories in -> Calories out).

 

Pushups will build some muscle, but they won't make you "ripped".

 

Frankly, you need to increase your calorie intake. You need to eat more. Ideally, make it balanced, with some amount of fats and sugars and carbs, and with plenty of protein if you want to "get ripped" or gain a lot of muscle.
 

If you want to gain muscle, doing dead lifts/power lifts and lots of weight training is going to be the direction you want to take. If you can afford it, get a personal trainer at a local gym (even just once per month to give you some exercises and track your progress).

 

Furthermore, go to your doctor and talk about your weight. They should be able to give you a referral to a registered nutrition expert, who can help you craft what kinds of foods (and how much) you should be eating.

 

DO NOT just eat a bunch of ice cream or other junk food. Yeah you'll gain weight, but you'll also make yourself quite unhealthy.

 

But the very basic:

Eat more calories than you burn. Science will do the rest.

You need to eat more to gain weight, and come along with right amount of exercises. Since your 17, you are still growing man. Don't stress yourself.

I weighed 120 pounds until I went to College, then I gained an easy 20+ pounds.

 

A lot of people find it hard to gain weight when they are young. For most of them, once they get into their late 20's and 30's, it becomes much easier (too easy, some would say).

It's easy to loose the first 20lbs and a challenge going forward.  All those health tip books and diet plans gimmics are just same as any other and quickly loose 20lbs.

 

Multi-Vitamins are worthless and do not dissolve properly.  The best Vitamin is liquid form and about $25 -  Natures Way - Alive !

 

https://www.amazon.com/Natures-Way-®Multivitamin-Food-Based-Antioxidants/dp/B0019I8NXS

 

For excercises watch Youtube Military Bootcamp training.   Dedicate 1 day to running 1 hour and alternate next day to Muscle Failure.  - Good Military muscle failure are Fludder Kicks and Monkey Fu@$ers.  Jumping Jacks are called Side Straddle Hop - sung in cadence of 3 = 1.  You'd be doing 1,500 Jumping Jacks no problem by 4th week of Boot Camp.  Relax on the Weekends and ride a bike, but not needed

 

Really fun and great exercise ? Spend $300 on a professional DDR Metal dance pad. You can wear sneakers of them and stomp the crap out of it and it won't break.
