So, two weeks ago I started to go to gym again after a year of inactivity. I do not like being ectomorph.

I am following my trusty custom diet program from a seemingly reliable source from the internet. The program is working, but damn.. it is hard. I spend half the day cooking meals. LOL

This is what I have to eat (per day!) in order to gain muscle:






This program avoids fats and lets me have lean muscle. It's working well I should say. My muscles are already showing. Hard work and hard food.

I barely have time to write this post. =P

ROFFEL!

If that is important to you...

My opinion is that all people who have a good health are lucky and should accept themselves how they are. I don't care about muscles (anymore), I just want to have a good health, it doesn't matter what I look like, seriously, I don't give a damn anymore. I need less to be happy.

That looks like a lot of food to eat every day, Zomg!

You could also experiment with making a diet yourself. First you would have to find out what the influence is of every food type on your body (I wrote a blog post about that), and then you can try creating a diet of your own. I noticed there are lots of things on your diet I never tried, which I hopefully will try in the future!

I came up with this for myself:
--------------------------------------
Breakfast: a bowl of Kellogs Special K, 2 white slices of bread with Nutella and meat, 3 glasses of milk, a banana.

Before 12:00: Half a liter of water.

Lunch: 2 bowls of yoghurt, green grapes, half a liter of water

Dinner: meat, potatoes, cucumber, green apple, half a liter of water. 1/week: pizza, 1/week: french fries with a frikadel.


By the way Zomg I thought you had an injury (can't remember what it was exactly) which made you unable to sport? Or did it only make you unable to do martial arts?

I understand, Dennis. However yeah.. I think it is important for me. I do not like feeling weak. Biggest reasons I'm doing this:
- Exercise allows you to get better grades at university (more focus etc.)
- Extends life expectancy
- I will feel (and be, and want to be) stronger than everyone in ju jitsu. I certainly dislike the idea of being weaker than someone else
- It is healthy

Oh very nice Rince. I like this. Yes, well, it's not really an injury. It's a disability that I was born with (lack of vitamins and what not at birth). My knee cap is swimming in my leg, so to speak. It is far too weak. It can dislocate with any rash movement (and did, during my sport (it's not a sport but anyway)). To compensate for this (and it works decently) I use a knee strap. It seems to block my excessive knee movement well. I have been having success with it.

I will however proceed to do martial arts. Since I was a year inactive a few weeks ago (well, still a bit now) I was as weak as a wad of wet paper. I need to toughen up again at gym (which I'm doing) so that I can feel confident and strong. Also, so that I can better defend myself in my dojo.

Ah, a knee strap, clever. I also bought one when I had a knee injury but never got to using it. But it's good to hear it actually works. I also advised Raverdave to use one because he had a knee injury but he thinks a knee strap is for women and that enemies will spot his weak knee in soccer and try to hit him there.

It's good that you're working on your health so much really. I want to do this too, but I currently have a heart problem which causes an inability to sport. But hopefully it'll get better when I get to move to Rotterdam and then I can hopefully pick up again. I also want to do a sport, but it won't likely be a real martial art anymore, because I'm far too afraid to get injured. It'll probably Judo (safest sport there is :D ).

Trying to hit him there? That is sadistic.. =O. Against the rules as well of course, let's not forget to mention that it is unsportive too.

I understand that it indeed causes an inability to sport. I hope as well for you the best. =)
Judo safe? Hmm.. hmmm.. maybe. It can still get pretty aggressive though. =P

Patella luxation by any chance? You could indeed wear a sleeve to keep the patella in place. Leg extensions are good exercises for this.

Not sure if it is the patella luxation, but it certainly feels like it is. My knee is extremely weak at leg extensions. Right now I can barely push 5 kg. Why? Because my leg can't feel the weight pushing.. very weird. Same thing with my left bicep, but that's because I probably use my right bicep more. :o (ROFL)
