    Ok I haven't worked out in over 6 months...

    And I'm basically starting fresh, I'm skinny as all hell, I lost basically everything I gained due to not eating enough and not working out for so long.

    Anywayz that's not what I wanted to talk about.

    Basically I have forgotten a few vital pieces of information about nutrition.

    Question #1: How often should I have a meal (I know 6 times a day), I generally go by 2 1/2 - 3 hours after smaller meals/protein shakes and 3 - 3 1/2 hours after larger meals. I don't ever leave it any longer than 4 hours between meals

    Am I about right here?

    Question #2: If I'm eating enough protein (1-1.5 grams of protein per pound of bodyweight) But I'm not eating OVER my daily calories that I burn (but im not too far off) will I gain any strength/mass? If not, will eating more protein help gain mass or will it still not work if I don't go over my daily calories burned?

    Thanks guys, I needs help.

    EDIT: Oh yeah, 1 more question, because I haven't worked out for a fair while does that mean I won't have to work out quite as intensely as I use to when I lifted regularly to achieve hypertrophy (Because you know how muscles adapt to working out and making it harder to achieve muscular hypertrophy, does your body kind of Un-adapt if you haven't worked out in a while)? Or will it still be the same as when I was working out regularly last year?

    Am I about right here? ***Yes, spread your meals out as you said, watch your intake on your big meals. This is critical, add up your calories and ratios to know what is exactly going in, check for calculators on here.

    Question #2: If I'm eating enough protein (1-1.5 grams of protein per pound of bodyweight) But I'm not eating OVER my daily calories that I burn (but im not too far off) will I gain any strength/mass? If not, will eating more protein help gain mass or will it still not work if I don't go over my daily calories burned? ***Carbs will get you mass, 1.5 grams a protein PBW will get you mass, not that much, more of a keeping your current muscle bandaid. You could go with more protein, but I wouldn't recommend it. Very simple, you don't need that much, check the benifits on here.

    Thanks guys, I needs help.

    EDIT: Oh yeah, 1 more question, because I haven't worked out for a fair while does that mean I won't have to work out quite as intensely as I use to when I lifted regularly to achieve hypertrophy (Because you know how muscles adapt to working out and making it harder to achieve muscular hypertrophy, does your body kind of Un-adapt if you haven't worked out in a while)?

    ****Don't be lazy, intensity is key. You said you were working out before the 6 month vacation right? 2 words, muscle memory. Your gains should be pretty d*mn good the first month or so. Your skinny, so you need a very good bulking diet, check out what members have posted on here that are in your situation, or check the bulking diets already on here, not hard to find.
    very slow bulk, 6'1 @ 220, takin it day by day

    I thank God for the strength he has given me to do what I can, and finish what I start.

    yah i'm not being lazy, i love an intense workout, but i thought that i might be overtraining myself if i do hardcore workouts when i've been out of action for so long. And I'm not really that skinny, I don't really wanna bulk much. I'm just on a high protein, moderate carb diet with plenty of good fats. I wanna loose some fat while I gain some strength and a bit of mass really.

    That is possible for someone in your current situation. You can pull off the much sought for "gaining mass while losing fat" diamond. With the intensity thrown in the weight exercises, your body will gain that much faster. Yeah I guess you could ease back in, but I would shock the hell out of my body. Just take your daily intake of glutamine to help out, and get some good compounds in there (squats, deadlifts, barbell rows). May want to try a 40/40/20 split, or mabe 50/30/20 (p/c/f).

    I hear ya there, I can rarely get the search to work, and when it does, it takes literally 3 minutes for anything to pop up. This on a T1.

    TO your last question, you have to work your absolute hardest, intensity. No matter what your strength level, if you don't push yourself you won't grow. It's not about the weight you lift, but how hard it is for you.

    You should get a the newbie gains again though after not lifting that long. Plus you will have muscle memory and should fill back up to where you were faster then the first time...

    Good luck
    oh and I do intermittent fasting while on keto so nothing I say matters.
