Gaining Weight

Hello, I was wondering if anyone else here is having trouble gaining weight? I know the majority of this website is for weight loss purposes, but there is still the option for gaining weight. Does Anyone have tips for gaining healthy weight?:smile:

    Now, now D2D, this site is about fitness, not specifically gaining or losing weight. tpeters, you have every right to ask that question, the goals area should work either way, gaining or losing. If you follow the guidelines and eat nutritious healthy meals and get enough calories, and work out, you should gain healthy muscle just as people trying to lose weight still want to gain muscle. You must work your body though, if you just eat, your going to gain fat, which you don't want. Follow the goal plan on the site and do some weight training and a little cardio and you should gain slow, steady muscle.

    Hope this helps.

    Wait this is your boyfriend? Is he making a joke?

    No, he isn't making a joke. He truly is trying to gain weight. He could eat A LOT and still be super small.

    In that case, as scarey as it sounds, you have to kinda force the issue a little, part of that is choosing the right kinds of food, higher density foods with more protein and more good carbs, but in the end you probably will have to train your body to just eat more. You can lessen the difficulty of that by spacing it out over smaller meals throughout the day so your body doesn't feel stuffed.

    My ex had the same problem with trying to put on weight. He got into weight lifting and eating a lot of protein. He also started drinking those protein shakes from GNC. It took a while, but he got looking pretty good.

    A friend of mine was told by her doctor to have a sip of milk for every bite of food she had in order to gain the weight she needed....

    You need to up your caloric intake and make sure your getting all the proper factors...carbs, fats, proteins...and also workout but not on a protocol that is going to burn the fat since you seem like you dont have alot to lose
