How exactly do people get fat?

68 posts in this topic

I've started counting my calories for the first time in my life, to try to gain weight.

In my efforts to try a weightlifting "bulking" phase and put on a pound per week, livestrong recommended that I eat over 3400 calories per day above any calories that I burn exercising.

I find this almost impossible. My normal eating habits only take me to about 1700 per day.

Help me, fatties... you're my only hope.

Lets see. Eat lots of fatty foods on the couch.

Drink lots of soda and beer.

Leave couch only to use bathroom

Watch your role model Honey Boo Boo

This should help.

Jase you're a really thin guy with, I would assume, a pretty high metabolism. A lot of people don't have that so it's much easier for them to put weight on, esp when eating poorly and not getting exercise. My metabolism has slowed over the years and continues to do so. I used to be able to eat anything I wanted... not anymore.

Somebody else started a thread this weekend about putting on weight...

You'll have to find some higher calorie foods that you like, eat protein, lift as heavy of weights that you can and go from there.

I used to think I have a high metabolism, but like I said, when I eat like normal, I only eat about 1700 calories.

    • I wouldn't say he made him look bad, just expendable (and overpaid).
    • Good let them. Will just allow other good players to drop to us in round 2-4

    • And this is my problem.  Its not that he can or can't run from the shotgun. The problem is that he never has and you just don't know. Will he have the patience to wait beside the QB with the ball in his belly? And during that time the line is blocking and shifting in front of him. There is no definite "hole" to run to. After the QB finally leaves the ball to him, does he have the read-option vision to find that little crease in the line, plant his foot, and cut through it? Jonathan Stewart does, but Stew played in a spread, shotgun offense in college, so he already knew what he was doing. Can Fournette do that well? The answer at this point, since he's never been asked to, is "maybe". Do you spend the #8 overall pick rolling the dice on "maybe"? At a position that in general is the most short-lived in the NFL? Maybe DG and Rivera do exactly that.  If so, I can understand their gamble and would hope for the best. Fournette is a great talent.
