    its one of those shitty buzz words iv been seeing lots of lately. Like ectomorph.

    Like Maine posted in the other topic, wouldnt a hardgainer just be someone with a fast metabolism, and incomplete diet?

    Everyone will put on weight if they get enough calories.

    Fast metabolism but lots of those who think they are are just eating inconsistently.

    and for some people, its really hard to get enough calories to see any gains, ie having to eat till they are so full they feel sick.

    I know how that feels :o But still, you will put on weight.

    I think even the most hardgainers should get gains on 3500 calories.

    Why do you always base your shit off of calorie intake? Thats a good way to base it off of, but youve got to open up your mind and think of also the carb intake and protein intake.

    There is no standard for any single person. Everything is a general guideline, you need to adjust for how your body works.
