I'm like 5'11" and a 150lb at 19y/o. I smoke heavily and it keeps my appretite low, and my fast metabolism don't help. Can I get creatine at BX?

Quit smoking and you'll probably put on 10-15 lbs....plus you'll feel better. Your appetite will return and the extra cals will help mass. If you religiously work out that weight will become muscle and not fat.

I have been trying to bulk up myself. I decided this deployment I'd double my calorie intake and cut fitness out from my regime. And even with cutting beer out of my diet. Only gained a pound in 4 months and lost it when I had to miss dinner due to mission. I curse Zoidberg for this high metabolism!!!!!

Creatine in and of itself will not make you gain weight (5-10 pounds of water weight aside depending on you) Proteins on the other hand...

Yeah, you should try the protein mixes that are loaded with carbs too. I had a buddy that also drank 2 ensures with every meal and that worked out pretty well for him, until he stopped.

Its called Whey Gainer. Eat protein and carbs. Eat 5 times a day even if your not hungry. I used to be 150. Now im at 185. Ive been liftin weights for a couple of years.

Eating high-fat, high-carbohydrate foods is not the best way to put on weight and in the long-run, can leave you prone to diabetes.
Weight-lifting offers you the best opportunity to put on some healthy gains in your overall weight.

I'd say that RadarG has the best advice. A good wife is the best way to put on the pounds. It's worked like a champ for me!

Seriously though, muscle training is probably the best way to go. Personally, I think that you are lucky that you are in the condition that you're in. I wish that I didn't have to work hard to keep the pounds off. I have to work out 5 days a week and be careful of what I eat. I'm 32 and miss the good ole days of smoking, eathing pizza, and drinking beer on a daily basis. :cry:
