HI! I AM A 32 YEAR OLD MOTHER OF 2 AND I WEIGH 101 LBS. I CAN NOT GAIN WEIGHT NO MATTER WHAT I TRY ~ I HAD TEST DONE TO SEE IF IT WAS MY THYROID BUT RESULTS CAME BACK NORMAL! DOCTOR SAYS I'M HEALTHY AND HAVE NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT BUT I STILL SAY IT'S NOT GOOD WHEN SOMEONE "CAN'T" GAIN WEIGHT! ANYONE HAVE ANY IDEAS OF SOMETHING IT COULD BE?
i dont have any ideas just wanted to say god i wish i was in the same boat as you i look at food and get fat you should enjoy it and if your worried go to your doctors for a full check over bloods ect if you already havent best of luck.
lol~ trust me u wouldn't wanna be in the same boat!buying a size 3 is embarrassing! I have even tried drinking that weight gain 4000 stuff and I never gained more then just a few pounds. My doctor says I have been blessed but I just don't think it's normal~I want to gain up to 110 lbs and can't~I am 5'3 and should be atleast 110lbs from what I've read on here.
I had a friend who played college football, but his coach wanted him to bulk up (gain weight) because he was playing on the defensive line, and was underweight for college football. With the practices and his own workouts and exercise he was having trouble gaining more than a pound or two a month, so his coach had him set his alarm for 2 different times in the middle of the night and get up and drink a large shake, chocked full of calories (icecream and stuff) along with eating 5 times a day. Within 3-4 months he put on about 40 lbs.
You will put weight on in fat!! That is not what you want - it is unhealthy.
I am a 22 year old male and have been studying weight loss/gain extensively for the last 2 years. 2 years ago I needed to lose 35lbs and did so, but went underweight! So I needed to gain weight.
Basically, what you need to do is eat but eat the correct things. Your diet should be bulked up with plenty of carbs. Seeing as you are female though, it will vary for you.
Here is an example of an eating plan for you.
150g of porridge
Beans on wholegrain toast
Baked potato with cottage cheese and tuna, and plenty of vegetables and fruit.
50g of mixed dried fruit (no added sugar) and a selection of nuts (again no added sugar - or roasted or anything else, just plain)
250ml of skimmed milk.
Chicken/fish etc with 100g (dried weight) of pasta or rice or a baked potato, plenty of vegetables again
Bowl of fresh fruit with natural yoghurt
Now that is an example - but you should be having all those meals per day. I know it sounds a lot but I have looked into that to make sure that is correct for a female and it is. Try and eat as much as you can - obviously if you feel sick or anything stop because that is ridiculous.
Now you can't just sit around all day waiting for that to give you weight gain - it will but it will be in the form of FAT!
Each day you need to lift weights (to increase muscle which will tone you and.... yes - add weight!)
Work a different body part for 5/6 days a week.
30- 45 minutes on each day with 15-30 mins cardio to keep the heart/lungs healthy.
Doing this you should gain about 1 to 2lb per week. And that is all you want to gain because any more than that and it is likely to be fat.
Now don't be scared about lifting weights - i know women don't want to look like arnie, but I promise you that you won't! He does some serious eating and training!
Any questions, just ask, and let me know how you get on.
