I was watching "Supersize-me" the other day as part of my communications class. It is a documentary where a man in good health and average weight goes on a diet of eating only large quantities McDonalds food for a month. At the end of the movie, he is in terrible shape, has gained an incredible ammount of weight, and was apparently in danger of liver failure. As I was watching it, I was thinking "Wow! That must be stupid. I would never do something like that, and eat so much junk food." I thought about it for a minute, then realized something: I do eat that much, and often the same types of things! For lunch/dinner, I'll often order a bacon-cheeseburger, and a double-bacon cheeseburger. At the all-you-can eat style cafeteria on campus, I'll often eat pizza, burgers, salads+eggs, other food in the same meal. I'm getting to a point where I'm still hungry after eating a whole box of the kraft style macaroni. (I think there's around 1,400 calories a box) I'm not obese, I don't have liver problems, and I'm not depressed. I don't have bad cholesterol or high blood pressure either as far as I know. (The star of "supersize-me" did by the end) Actually, I'm really skinny. I'm too skinny infact. I'm 6'0 and weigh barely 160lbs, and I look even skinnier because none of it is fat. Alright, I don't drink soda at all like the guy in the movie does as I don't like it; I prefer juice or milk. (tons of sugar or tons of fat? ) I also excercise on a regular basis and include thigns in my diet that contain veggies and carbohydrates etc. If the guy in the movie can gain 40 pounds in a month by eating large quantities of foods high in fat, calories etc, why can't I? Are there any ways to gain weight? I lift weights all the time, and I eat like a stoned rhinoceros, yet I can't gain any weight. Can anyone give me any pointers or point out what I'm missing?
