Did you mean to make a funny?

The irony wasn't lost on me. But he is clearly a attention-seeker who is either in need of professional help or just a wind-up merchant, ie a troll.

If someone's ill, that doesn't automatically mean they're a troll.

That isn't what I meant.

nor is it what you said.

That aside, for some one to reach the targets set by Stillman seems borderline to me. To starve yourself beyond that is illness.

I have never considered myself overweight but by Stillman I am normal. That I find striking as I am forever being harangued about my weight as it is. I don't think that I would ever want to be the weight that Stillman suggests that I should be. It's a stone lighter than I am.

I do find that I am larger than many female runners I mix with. That hasn't made me any slower than them.

As was said on the previous thread linked to by phil pub, if the OP is genuine (???) he clearly wants people to comment about how shocked they are by his weight. I would however recommend Racing Weight by Matt Fitzgerald. Great book.

I think he genuinly weighs that little, I looked at the rest of the photos in that album.

I couldn't find how to see the other pics....but that one picture now I've seen it is pure emaciation.

Your whole ribcage isn't meant to be on display jutting out like that

Doing a bit of googling - it looks like the same user has also been a variety of other forums looking for advice about reducing in weight

Stevie G, open the image up and change the numbers against the images in your browser, from 5 to 4 etc

The Stillman calculator I tried doesn't give 8 st 4 as the ideally weight for 6' 3, more like 11 st 10

"Thus, a man 6 feet tall (1.829 m) would be allocated 110 lbs (50 kg) plus 12 x 5lbs (2.495 kg), which comes to 176 lbs or 12 st. 8 lbs (80 kg)."

-20% = (64kg) 141 lbs or a tad over 10 stone.

a man 6'3" : (110lbs + (15*5½ ) = 192.5) - 20% =  154lbs or 11 stone

That number is at the heavy end of the range.

Ah...but i wish i hadn't looked now.

2 immediate thoughts...pic1 ...classic premature aging, a well known symptom....and as for the other pics...well, i don't think it's helpful to spell out what they remind me of from history class

PLEASE can everyone stop using ellipses because they have no fucking idea how to write properly.

(Sorry, throwback to a very Wilkie type childhood)

When i was writing essays on my english degree course back in the day,  I'd write properly, but on a running forum.......I think I'll write how I like thanks

ps Seren, I wouldn't post for a bit if I were you

We need seren's input about writing with ...... ellipses ....

Surely they only constitute ellipses if there are 3, after that they cease to be...

This guy is obviously seriously ill and I do wonder if, as kittenkat says, seeking some validation through us all telling him how thin he is.  Killermiles, get to a doctor mate
