    Link: The Weight Fluctuation Of Christian Bale - Damn! Talk about a yo-yo dieter. If there`s ever an Academy Award for drastic weight loss and gain, it`s Bale`s for sure

    If someone told you to lose 100lbs and then gain it back in 6 months to make millions of dollars. It would be easy for you too.

    "How the drat?! I`ve been wanting to gain weight like that, how does he do it!? I`m stuck at about 145!"

    Lucky. Try eating a LOT of disgusting fat food. Put on the mass before you turn it into muscle. Otherwise you`re just exercising to lose weight rather than converting it into muscle. You will still lose weight, but more muscle will grow if you have mass for it to grow on.

    I know that when I "work-out", I get bulging muscles in a very short time. I haven`t worked out for real in 3 years, but I do sometimes accidentally exercise and feel the muscles growing the next day...Owie (If I run 20 minutes, the next day I can`t walk, is how fast my muscles grow)

    I say I can;t walk, that`s not 100% true... I can walk, it hurts to stand up, sit down and go up and down stairs...once I do get walking, once the momentum is built I have no problem.

    My biggest thing isn`t to eat gross. It`s to eat lots and do little. Eating gross will kill you. McDonald`s is not the way to go. Try eating 2 servings of Spaghetti and garlic bread with dessert. 4 grilled cheese sandwiches. 3 bowls of cereal in the morning. 6 toast with jam/PB/whatever else goes on toast.

    I Eat like this daily and am only 230lbs WITHOUT working out, at all...in the past 4 years I have only gained 4 lbs......

    And modify small habits that you know are bad for you. Soda is bad for everyone, completely useless sugar, so I don`t drink soda....only water, 2 or 3 Liters a day. I drink soda if I go out to a restaurant (not too often). I don`t carry junk food at home because I indulge. No potato chips in the house, nothing snack foods. If I need to eat, I make a small meal, or snack on something healthy like shreddies, or carrots/celery.

    For someone as unhealthy as I am, I take good care of myself I find....those small habits are why I don`t gain weight IMO.

    "How the drat?! I`ve been wanting to gain weight like that, how does he do it!? I`m stuck at about 145!"

    I only weigh 110 lbs at 5`10" tall. I talked to a nutritionist about gaining weight and she said the average person needs 2,000 calories a day to stay healthy. To gain weight one should consume 3,000. She also said I should do weight training, but I don`t have the money for a gym membership or free-weights, but I found this through google.

    I watched Equilibrium and The Machinist the same day. I only realized in the middle of The Machinist that it was the same guy I had just seen in Equilibrium. Then I realized it was the same guy as in American Psycho and Christian Bale gained my eternal respect.

    @alley228 it`s usually not, and probably wasn`t the greatest, but when done the safe way you can avoid a lot of issues that can come with that...

    it`s not a natural weight flux, or "yo-yo dieting" it`s conditioning to fit the rolls he`s given. In the Machinist, he lost more weight than he was required of him.
