Question by Xcal: Is doing the opposite of weight loss advice healthy for skinny people to gain weight?
I’m a skinny guy (im 17, 130 pounds), but pretty athletic. If I want bigger arms & calfs, in general want to gain more weight. If I follow the opposite of weight loss advice, such as not exercising and eating foods like cake/donuts, (along with obviously protein shakes, will I gain muscle mass?

Another thing I want to ask is if “high protein” but low calorie whey protein drinks (this thing called Orgaino is healthy for me.

If you want to gain muscle mass, you’re going to have to start hoisting metal- lots of it! Those muscle gain powder mixes will help, but read the caloric info on the back- lots of them have tons of fat and sugar. May I suggest eating natural proteins (lean cuts of beef, chicken and fish) along with a balanced health diet of fresh fruits, veggies, and non-white 100% whole wheat carbs.

    Im practically on your same case but i do know that doing the opposite is not completely healthy because eating a lot of fat and sugar might give you problems.. try eating a lot of proteins and a balanced diet (not being shy on carbs but not exaggerating either) and doing excercises

    Well you aren’t really eating healthy. You still want to have a balanced diet otherwise you will probably just end up with a gut and looking skinny everywhere else.
