I'm what you would call a "hard gainer". In order to gain weight I have to take in quite a bit more calories than I'm used to, which I tried before but seldom hit my target of 2400 a day and spent a great deal stressing about it so I stopped. Anyhow, this week I bought a bunch of Boost Plus to, well, boost my caloric intake without having to stress or force things down. I've been drinking two @ 360 cals each a day in addition to regular meals. It's really been a relief to hit my calorie targets without feeling overwhelmed. I don't have a scale so I'm not sure if I've gained anything yet, and it's only been four days, but I'm finally optimistic. Going to start strength training to build muscle tonight, hopefully the exercise will help me put the weight on as muscle which apparently is harder to lose than fat so if my calories drop temporarily I won't waste away back to a string bean immediately, like what happened post partum with both my pregnancies. Wish me luck!!
