At 16 when I lost weight.

17-18 didn't give a crap.

Now i'm 19, with some serious nutrition knowledge, ready for a clean bulk.

i always ate healthy, just ate in excess. im a meso/ecto by nature, so it was hard for me to gain weight in the beginning. however, 5 years of 5-6000 calories a day eventually got me sloppy.

last year is when i got super gooey though after i hurt my back. i shot up to 180obs, and was bed bound so i lost most of my muscle. after i recovered i changed my diet, dropped to 150lbs , super lean. now im slowly gaining back the muscle mass i used to have.

15, at sixteen started planning meals according to macronutrient rationing and such. Still doing that, people look at me funny and I love it haha. Especially when you whip out a tupperware container with 1 chicken breast and brown rice, then 3 hours later you down a protein shake and some raw oats hah.

Increasingly since I was about 12. That's when I had my first (and last) McDonald's hamburger. It's been uphill since then.
