    You say he's just started coming down the gym and he's having trouble bulking up?It takes years to build a decent physique mate.Tell him to stick to basic movements and eat like a warrior.You've got to be consistent and patient.From what I can gather about steroids its best to get as far as you can naturally before considering them.

    the above is true, im hardgainer and its taken me about 4 - 5 yrs going at least 4 times a week to the gym to really get anywhere, and guess what, im only really starting to make progress now. Its a marathon not a sprint.

    i think shrinkage is failry common with most of them, but you dont lose everything that you have gained from them, but i am not a steroid user, so i cant really help you on that front. But most users i know have trained for many many years, where already rather big guys and had their diet sorted.

    if he wants to put weight on, dont look further than pakistani restaurants, chicken curries etc.

    I know in one of their dishes they put so MUCH lard....

    Thats BOUND to get him gaining weight.

    Yeah but he doesnt wanna die of a heart attack when hes 40 What about some quality bulking up? Eat till your full then eat some more! Certain Junk is ok as long as he gets his quality food first

    What's his weight?
    Ask him how many calories he takes in daily and how often he eats.
    Also what type of food does he eat?

    steroids won't do anything for him. If he can't gain the weight naturally, he won't be able to sustain the weight once he is off steroids. It's not like once u get the weight u just automatically keep it. Your diet has to be able to support the new size without the gear. He needs to learn proper diet/training techniques if he wants to get anywhere. Also, he has to realize it will take him a while to gain weight.

    Tell him not to waste his money on steroids...

    Depends what weight gainer. Most are full of sugar.

    Plus any beginner who eats well is going to gain very quickly but those gains will slow right down...
