    How did you do it? I struggle with weight gain and have tried building muscle at the gym but I see no changes. I even got a personal trainer. It’s been months. I think I might be doing something wrong. I’m so insecure with my body.

    Hey, I’m 5’2 and 123 lbs . I been trying to gain weight. I’m barely making any progress. Went from 120-123. I drink protein shakes everyday and 3 meals. I do a good 2100 calories a day normally. But idk what else to do. My goal is 135. If anyone have any advice that would be great.

    You obviously need more than 2100 calories. I need around 2300 just to maintain.
    Are you weighing and logging your food accurately and also logging your exercise?

    Yes I’m logging my stuff accurately. I pretty much scan everything. It’s obvious that I need more calories that’s why I asked for advice (i.e type of food, workout etc). I said usually 2100 but it’s between 2100-2300 depending on what I eat.

    Yes fair enough and sorry! But you said, you generally eat around 2100 and "didn't know what else to do"
    It's actually not that hard to bump up your calories by another couple of hundred - there's a post at the top of this forum called Are you a hard gainer, which gives a pretty full list of calorie dense food and that's what you need.

    I don't go to the gym. I exercise at home using no equipment. But am gaining weight because am a calorie surplus.

    I have the same problem, my daily goal is a bit over 7000kj to gain .25kg a week, but it's a stretch just to get in the 6000+kj range. I'm not really after a toned body or anything, I don't really work out. I really just want to gain a bit more weight so I can feel healthier, but I feel like im not educated enough in healthy eating to know how to gain weight properly.

    As long as you're getting sufficient protein and fat, I wouldn't worry about "eating healthy" Put your stats into mfp, set it to gain weight at the rate you want to gain it and off you go. If you're still not gaining after a few weeks, increase your calories. Have a look at the Are You a Hard Gainer thread at the top of this page for a list of calorie dense foods. Weigh and log your food as I find I have a tendency to undereat if I don't do this
    I get what you're saying about not being worried about gaining muscle but you might find that weight lifting helps with your appetite. When I started on weight gaining I didn't work out at first, but found I didn't much like the look of the extra fat with no muscle gain! Up to you though.

    Hey, for those just getting started, wanting to gain weight, you can try apetamin or Maca root. Apetamin will make you gain weight QUICK!

    Fast weight gain will be mostly fat gain. Not a great idea IMO.
