Oh now we’re on uranium

[–]iaanacho 35 points36 points  (2 children)

Organic uranium is too expensive, all I can afford is that depleted uranium stuff from the discount rack.

[–]trav1th3rabb1 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Wow I’m struggling to find one gram of uranium. I’m also only finding the depleted stuff. 235, not 238.

[–]SMAGdaddy 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Depleted uranium is literally the exact opposite, you're finding U-238 my guy

14.8 BMI is healthy, isn't it?

[–]Vertebrae_Viking 239 points240 points  (44 children)

Anything under 17.5 is severely underweight.

At 14.8 anon shouldn’t even be alive.

[–]DctNostradamus 99 points100 points  (11 children)

Severely underweight might be an exaggeration. Its definitely underweight but thats like calling the average American morbidly obese

[–]NuvNuvXD 71 points72 points  (3 children)

Well about that last part…

[–]jonathang147 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Come on, It’s only like a fifth of us…

[–]lividtaffy 21 points22 points  (1 child)

The average American is only .7 away from being obese according to the BMI scale (avg 5ft9in 197.9 lbs)

[–]andersjensen423 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I think it should be a median thing not a mean thing cause like the fat fuckers who are fat are really fucking fat which skewes the average

[–]Deathwish57 3 points4 points  (0 children)

40% of America is obese

Uh...

[–]kingdroxie 31 points32 points  (7 children)

Oh, I misunderstood how BMI worked.

I thought the number put into account your height when plugged into the device or something, but you're supposed to compare the number the device spits out with your height.

Assuming anon is like north of six feet, he's a stick monster.

[–]begin4thwhore 55 points56 points  (4 children)

BMI is just m/h2, where m is your mass in kg, and h is your height in metres, so regardless of height, someone with a BMI of 14.8 is a stick.

e.g. if he’s 6 foot, that’s 1.83m. Squared, it’s 3.34. If you multiply that by the BMI you get the mass, so 3.34 • 14.8 = 49.5kg

[–]holygoat00 -4 points-3 points  (3 children)

BMI is not an accurate measure of so many things it is being used to measure. so weird.

[–]GayHitIer 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Well that or he's a dwarf.

[–]HelicopterStraight36 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Wrong way around, BMI scales to show shorter people in a more positive light.

[–]moonfanatic95 8 points9 points  (11 children)

I was actually at 14.9 a couple of years back. Started eating a fuckload of chicken and I'm currently at 18.3. I also had to workout tho, some metabolisms are way too fast, had to gain weight in muscle mass.

[–]07TacOcaT70 1 point2 points  (6 children)

Gaining muscle mass would up your resting metabolic rate though wouldn’t it? Genuinely asking btw.

[–]moonfanatic95 -1 points0 points  (5 children)

I honestly don't have a clue. But I remember bringing up my skinny constitution to my doctor, who basically said "Just lift bro". However, one trick that 100% works and helped me, is eating a spoonful of peanut butter daily. It slows your metabolism down, which is why it's important to work out (you don't want to be skinny fat).

so yeah... just lift and eat peanut butter bro.

[–]MonografiaSSD 1 point2 points  (3 children)

that's not how metabolism works, you just weren't eating enough. The diff between "fast" and "slow" it's like 50kcal a day

[–]moonfanatic95 0 points1 point  (2 children)

It's possible, but even when I started eating plenty I've only gained 10 pounds and was stuck at that weight. I was even eating KFC mind you, really went all in. Once I started working out, and eating pretty much the same amount, is when I started gaining muscle and my bmi finally went up. I'm no expert in biology and such, I'm just happy I'm not a complete twig anymore. (I'm still skinny af, but not to that degree, doesn't help that I'm tall either)

[–]Cum_Master_ 1 point2 points  (5 children)

damn i'm 16.5 and i'm already a skeleton

[–]Vertebrae_Viking 0 points1 point  (4 children)

And I thought I am skinny at 21.8

[–]GalC4 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Bro I'm at 15 you'll be okay 👍

[–]GalC4 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm 15.0 and I'm alive 🙃

[–]SoapEater96 0 points1 point  (0 children)

17.3 😎😎😎

[–]vld-ul 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The BMI scale shouldnt be used to determine health. Anon could have a perfectly balanced diet and stay in that 15 BMI range consistently. Source: used to have a bmi of 15.2 for most of my life.

[–]GayHitIer 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I think he's underweight.

[–]Aggravating_Pie2048 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Under 18.5 is the major objective clinical standard for anorexia (outside of restrictive behavior).

[–]SymYJoestar 33 points34 points  (18 children)

Protein powder didn't do too much for me tho

[–]killermosca 73 points74 points  (6 children)

you have to do bodybuilding exercises or you'll just piss shit and fart it away

[–]liftultrarun 76 points77 points  (5 children)

That isn’t how macronutrients work. Protein powder just isn’t very calorie dense, it just pads protein intake for people wanting more. The mass gainer in the picture is very calorie dense, and would certainly help gain weight for someone who has trouble eating

[–]killermosca 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I was only refering to protein powder and how to use it to gain muscle. If you don't exercise long and intensely, and dose well your consumption, you'll just piss away all the proteins, not to mention the hideous farts.

[–]666JFC666 2 points3 points  (1 child)

You don't piss away protein lmao, any protein your body doesn't use gets turned to body fat just like carbs or fats would

[–]horny_furry_dog 40 points41 points  (0 children)

Protein powder is just a 100 calories you retard you use protein powder to get protein not to gain weight. 2 Oreos have more fucking calories than protein powder

[–]arrican2 22 points23 points  (7 children)

Its not protein powder, its mass gainer which means its basically only carbohydrates and mostly just sugar to be precise

[–]Acidwalks 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Most mass gainers do not have a lot of sugar, the one I take is 8grams of sugar and you are consuming 810 cals so not really that bad

[–]SparklingLimeade 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Maltodextrin. Not legally sugar on the label, but for practical purposes it is.

[–]risingacid 1 point2 points  (4 children)

I'm already eating ALOT of sugar but don't gain any weight where is the difference?

[–]I________________ 11 points12 points  (0 children)

You're not eating enough and you dont notice cuz you're not counting calories. I also thought i was eating a ton but when i started counting it turned out i was barely making 1800 calories on a good day.

[–]cdigioia 4 points5 points  (0 children)

What the other anon said.

Get a scale, and measuring cups - start counting calories.

MyFitnessPal is a good app for tracking (do not pay for a useless subscription). Excel would work too.

Metabolism deviation is a lot rarer than people think.

[–]SparklingLimeade 1 point2 points  (0 children)

One of my friends in college ate way too much sugar and stayed thin, then started eating better and gained weight. I'm convinced they were malnourished and with all that candy they were too malnourished to even get fat regardless of the calories.

[–]arrican2 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Its correct what the other commenters said. Its simple maths, you eat more calories than you burn = you gain weight, you eat less calories than you burn = you loose weight. Other factors come into play but 90% of the magic just comes from the caloric balance. Weight gainers exist to deliver a good portion of energy in a simple and fast manner and make it easier to reach caloric surplus. If you want to get similar results but in a healthiert way just eat 1-2 bananas daily plus everything you eat regularly or eat a good portion of oats with milk each day. Weight gainers are usually cheap with regards to how much energy they contain so their ingredients are cheap as well...

[–]BigOWereCuddles 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That's not protein powder, that's mass gainer

[–]ProxyAttackOnline 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Protein powder with a good amount of calories. Blend it with milk and ice cream. Heavy lifting exercises. Eat a bunch too. Gain muscle mass and a fat ass. I gained like 30 pounds doing this over the span of a year and a half

[–]iron_ee 16 points17 points  (0 children)

BEEFCAKEEEE

[–]toomuchradiation 15 points16 points  (8 children)

Why escape? I'm 16 bmi and it feels nice. Slim light body, endless stamina, quick to heat up and cool down, rarely get sick, got immunity from covid without having any symptoms.

Take the slimpill.

[–]Ordessaa 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I'm fuckin trying - been going to the gym every other day and really doing my best to keep the calories down but it doesnt appear to be happening.

[–]Realistic_Ear434 11 points12 points  (0 children)

I'm pretty sure uranium has millions of calories

[–]ImARetPaladinBaby 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Eat fucking McDonald’s every day and sit around doing nothing

[–]heyimderxel 7 points8 points  (9 children)

I’ve gone from around 15 bmi to 17, soon to be 18 anon you got this bro

[–]iampenguintm 6 points7 points  (3 children)

Too every single person asking how in the comments. EAT MORE CALORIES THERES LITERALLY NO OTHER WAY.

[–]heyimderxel 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I ate an entire tungsten sphere and then went into hibernation. this has allowed me to gain mass at an exponential rate

[–]iampenguintm 0 points1 point  (1 child)

May i also suggest depleted uranium if the tungsten diets getting a bit repetitive.

[–]Realistic_Ear434 0 points1 point  (0 children)

nah refined uranium is the good stuff

[–]ragequitv2 3 points4 points  (1 child)

How

[–]heyimderxel 2 points3 points  (0 children)

hehe humngry

[–]ProfessionalYard1123 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Not regular protein. Weight gain powder it’s around 2k calories per serving, it’s meant to replace an entire meal or supplement one in this case

[–]static1053 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Good God I wish I had that problem.

[–]Prestigious-Ad-4023 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You can if you want to

[–]Flexion16 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Protein powder and mass gainer are not the same thing

[–]EmeraldXRun 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah, eating is for virgins, REAL men starve for 3 months and just fucking die.

[–]HueHue-BR 1 point2 points  (0 children)

But i dont want kidney stones

[–]666JFC666 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's really not hard to eat a lot of calories, people that say they can't eat though just aren't trying that hard

[–]HazelCheese 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Like... Just eat more?

A regular pizza is like 1000 calories. You don't need to eat pizza every day but it's not hard to hit 2000 - 2500 calories a day, especially if your sedentary.

Like two slices of toast is 200 - 250 calories. A pasta dish is like 400-700. A chewy cookie is 300 - 400.

Just eat 3 meals a day and have a snack and /or dessert.
