    I have a friend that is 6"1+ and weighs 165 lbs. soaking wet! He eats anything he wants, drinks beer, does not work out, run, etc. He's very healthy, never gets sick, etc. and he's in his 70's. He has been up to 200 lbs. a few years ago when he worked out weekly with weights, etc. I'm amazed. Any comments?

    Muscle mass is heavier than fat. Not working out probably means he has less muscle mass and that loss goes with ageing too. Genetics are so important though. Glad for your friend.

    Got a friend that's the same way. And damn but that boy can eat. Known him for over twenty five years, and I don't think he's gained more than 1 or 2 pounds.

    I’m naturally a skinny Asian.

    If I don’t work out, I have no appetite and weight just falls off.

    I’m 50 now, been this way my whole life.

    If I can workout 3-5 times per week, I’ll hover around 170 lbs - 180 lbs

    When Stetson was born, I hadn’t worked out in quite some time and I was down to the 140’s.

    I’m around 165 right now, working out 2-3 days per week.
