I Eat Too Much But Why I Don't Gain Weight?

And to think some say they just smell cakes and cookies and they are getting fat already, of course that is just one form of their figure of speech. But hey, that is true, I mean, some people who really are skinny wanted to have some flesh and eating many foods but still they don't gain weight. I for myself, have been in this thin body for many years now. My tummy may get bulking but why my arms and shoulders are all still the same. Its been my dreams to build my biceps and triceps, to make my shoulders become broader and my chest become bulkier. Too bad, only my tummy is becoming bulky and rounder. Shame. It is really just metabolism? Or it is a genes?

i was 48 kilos last year but now i weigh 54.6 kilos, thanks to 1 and a half cups of rice. i am a rice eater that is why my uniform pants and denims are getting tighter. i don't have strenuous exercises, but i walk and walk when i am on duty. if your tummy gets bulky, maybe you are eating too much rice. may i suggest that you eat more protein and less carbohydrates, and exercise as well.
@ilocosboy protein is body building while carbohydrates is energy giving. if you are active (i know you run often), then maybe you are not burning much calories. more protein will give you more muscles and better abs. i think we must have more muscles than fats.
Are those delicacies from Ilocos? I would love to try regional food on my next visit. Anyway, it could be genetics, or metabolism. But careful, cause even skinny people can get heart disease or high cholesterol or diabetes even if they are not fat. I think the main thing is, as long as you are healthy and you are not sick all the time, that's what's important. Sometimes as you get older, your body suddenly changes. My mom was the skinniest girl in the family when she was younger and the change was so massive after her second pregnancy that she became obese. People could not recognize her anymore. So, I suppose, just keep eating good food, keep exercising, don't worry about the social standards of what physical beauty is. Your target should be health, not the superficial physical beauty
yes those are our local rice delicacies, we call the one in bamboo as "tinubong", "tupig" are those wrapped in banana leaves, "imbagkal" that one in flat brown, and I forget the name of that yellow one he he. I like your last paragraph particularly the line "don't worry about the social standards of what physical beauty is", its quotable one, thank you.

I just ate on a Buffet and I didnt gain weight I am stuck at 90 pounds! I have high blood pressure though. So maybe I am skinny on the outside but fat in the inside which means I am at risk for heart disease.
