    Eat more. Calorie dense stuff. Peanut butter, nuts, ect high fat foods with some protein and carbs.

    If that's hard - don't eat stuff that fills you up a lot.
    Food with lots of water in it already can do that.

    Oh - unless you are doing some weight lifting routine and this can take many weeks to accomplish - you will gain 6 lb of almost all fat.
    Not sure this theory of gain 6 and a little of it fat.

    Peanut butter, milkshakes, any high calorie/low density food. Eat more calories than your body uses and you will gain weight.

    Did she tell you what your body fat % is, and how was that determined? Do you feel like you need to gain weight?

    Is the nutritionist a registered dietician? Anyone can claim to be a nutritionist nowadays.

    If you didn't have any fat you would be dead. Fire the nutritionist and see a Registered Dietitian if you feel you need advice on your diet.

    Not to mention a nutritionist would have no problem building a diet plan to add some weight. Not just throw her to the wolves.

    Sounds like a self proclaimed guru.

    Also it's not healthy to rush weight gain, why do you need it right now? Why not slowly and steadily increase your weight overtime. Itll help prevent potential eating disorders and unwanted weight gain

    Your BMI is normal and you do not need to gain weight. I wouldn't see that nutritionist anymore.

    Hey, I’m 5’2” and at around 113-115, and I’ve definitely had body fat even when I was at around 105. I suggest instead of trying to gain fat you gain some muscle if you would like to get bigger but otherwise don’t listen to that nutritionist.

    I had that problem . 3 years ago weighted 103 pds .. started working out add a protien powder sometimes whey isolate other times vegan before bed time to sustain me through the night increased water intake to almost a gallon. Now I weigh in at 133 to 136 always .. you can do this simple small steps towards your goals. Never miss your bedtime protien. Its proven by my gains ..

    Don't do it too quick without resistance training. Make sure your diet does not consist of junk food. Eat healthy fats.
