Post Extremely high metabolism
on: March 28, 2012, 01:40

Hey everyone! I'm 20 years old, 130 pounds, and 5'9" in height. I used to wrestle so I have muscle, but I'm just not... a big looking guy. I think my high metabolism has something to do with it. Does anybody know of supplements or methods I can do to just get bigger?
I've been looking at MLO Brown Rice Protein as a protein supplement because I think I'm a little bit lactose intolerant... at least that's what I felt like after being on NOW whey protein concentrate.

I hope somebody can help me! Thanks

Lactose Intolerant from WHEY protein? Is that cause you use milk with your shakes? If so switch to water, preferably ice cold. Upping your protein intake is a must if you are looking to pack on weight but if your metabolism is that fast, I'd eat a bunch of whatever the hell I want. Make sure you're eating plenty of meats and veggies but add in pastas too. The thing people don't think about is gaining weight is just as hard as losing weight (when you have a fast metabolism). You have to treat it as if you're dieting to lose weight in terms of what you eat and when you eat and staying committed to a scheduled constant intake of food.

Simple formulas:
Calorie intake > Calories Burned = Weight Gain
Calorie intake < Calories Burned = Weight Loss

If you're lactose intolerant, please remember that we live in the world of grocery alternatives. Water is an option but it's not your only option. Goat milk, rice milk, soy milk, almond milk... Even though they're all called 'milk' most of them are safe for those with milk allergies because they're all made and processed differently than cows milk.

Also, if it is actually the whey protein that gives you trouble - switch to a different kind of protein. There are all kinds of powders and bars and such these days, you might have to try several before you find out what works for you.

Basically, T3rrorstorm is right. In order to gain weight, you've got to eat more calories than you burn. In order to gain a healthy type of weight, you've got to eat more calories than you burn while still exercising on a regular basis. This means eating on a schedule, even when you're not hungry. This is possibly much harder than trying to lose weight - and at least in part because we live in a culture that is so obsessed with weight loss. So I wish you patience.

Some things that have helped me: salad dressing. I never used to put salad dressing or sauces or anything on my meals - but now I do. It's a pretty easy way to add calories.

Don't do high-impact exercise, and this includes is basically all forms of cardio, as often. Low-impact exercises, like weight-lifting and stretching, will help keep you fit without buring as many calories.

But especially if you have food allergies, consider consulting with a certified professional nutritionalist or physical trainer. They can tell you all kinds of things that you might not be aware of - did you know that your blood type contribues to how your body digests food? - and help you form a detailed plan to reach your goals. There are foods that can help slow the metabolism but definately consult with someone qualified about that because you want to be careful. The body changes naturally as it ages, anyway - you don't want to be trying to manually shut down a system that might eventually go away on it's own.

Take care!

P.S - Just remembered... If you're lactose intolerant AND trying to get stronger... Please make sure that you have a calcium supplement. No point in building muscles that your skeleton can't support, yea?

Courage & Peace
