    How about weight gain? Tryna put on 6-8 pounds in 6+ months

    Set your daily caloric intake to 500 calories over maintenance for a caloric surplus. A rough estimate for your maintenance # is your body weight times ~14. Remember to get at least 1g of protein per pound of bodyweight when you're hitting that surplus each day. Get some weight training in too if you care about aesthetics.

    Cardio

    Control your caloric intake...

    Eat more lean meats (chicken and turkey preferably)

    Get your fruit and veggie servings

    And DRINK WATER plenty of water fam.

    Do your googles and try to find a meal plan to facilitate the results u desire.

    The water thing is critical

    If you're dehydrated your body has a much harder time using fat stores for energy

    Best single lift you could ever do, B. All of your other lifts will go up as a result of deadlifting.

    Easiest way to gain weight is basically to eat more carbs. I went from a skinny 123lbs to 168lbs in almost 2 years.

    Make these pancakes and eat them every morning, along with this milkshake. Then eat your proteins (fish, chicken, beef) with white rice multiple times in the day.

    1 cup of pancake batter
    Half a cup of oatmeal
    1 egg
    Handful of almonds
    Handful of walnuts
    Quarter cup of milk
    Tablespoon of honey

    blend all of that together. Turn on your stove top, heat your griddle, put the pancake on, add chocolate chips. Make as many as you want, then spread peanut butter on top of your pancake and sliced bananas. Then add more honey.
