Hey guys so this is my first time posting to this forum and I'm hoping someone can help me. So I'm 18 years old and I'm really skinny. Like really skinny. I'm 6'-6'1 and I weigh 125 lbs. I hate that I'm skinny and I really want to get bigger but I don't really know how. I know I need to eat more but I don't know what to eat to help. I've tried working out with friends in the past but when everyone is lifting so much more than you it's kind of embarrassing so I stopped going. I want to get at least a little bit bigger for summer because I hate hearing people constantly telling me how skinny I am. I'm hoping someone or multiple people can help me because I hate being so skinny. Thanks guys

Just eat, lift and don't overthink things.
Its good you took the first steps...i think its time to put the wheels in motion.
Stick to your compound exercises, squat, BP, DL, Rows, OHP and eat alot of caloric dense foods hitting your macronutrient intake.
As for programs: ICF 5x5, SS 3x5, SL 5x5...pick and choose.
Oh, and don't give a fuk what others think at the gym

Been, well kinda still in your position, im 142 at 5'6...but i started at 118...You have to eat bud. At this point it doesn't matter what you eat. Just get the food in you. Get in that gym and get your compounds (as stated above) down packed. It's simple, if your eating enough to grow, you will grow

Like others have stated... eat more.
If you're like me and don't like eating often - eat more calorie-dense foods... chuck steak instead of sirloin (will save you more money too), peameal bacon rather than pork center chops, full chicken with the skin, as opposed to just chicken breast..
That and things like Ice Cream...
Good luck!The first known contraceptive was crocodile dung, used by Egyptians in 2000 B.C.
