However, people are now telling me that I am so thin and my face looks so gaunt that I look unhealthy. Comparing current photos to older photos of me, I tend to agrere with them. I've always been thin and believe I have a high metabolism. I am 37, weigh 75kg and I am 185cm tall. I have always kept fit and sporty all my life, but this is by far the fittest I have ever been. My weight of 75kg is pretty much what I have been for a few years now, so I assume I look so thin since I've reduced my body fat and converted the weight to muscle (which I believe is heavier).
I really want to gain weight again and do so in a safe and healthy way that doesn't lead me to blocked arteries or other poor health in future years. I am willing to sacrifice some of my running performance to do so and I'm even willing to train just twice a week instead of 3 times as I do currently, however I dont want to stop running altogether since I enjoy it so much.
I bought some of that "protein mass weight gain" powder and I've started taking this as a milkshake. However, I'm not sure if I'm doing the right thing or whether there is a better way?
