If you want to put on weight, you should work out, to insure that you put on muscle and not fat. Healthy weight gain, just like healthy weight loss, takes time and requires a conscious effort to apply good habits. Recommended Ways to Gain Weight Have meals with the right balance of proteins, carbohydrates, and the right kinds of fat (such as unsaturated and monounsaturated fats, olive oil, canola oil, pistachios, almonds and walnuts). Heinemann suggests the following ratio: 60%-70% carbohydrates, 10%-15% protein, and a small amount of fat. Eat foods higher in calories, vitamins, and minerals, as opposed to higher in fat or sugar. Pack more nutritious calories in each serving. For example, you may add grated cooked eggs to mashed potatoes, ground chicken to soups and gravies, cheese in casseroles, eggs, and soups, and nonfat dried milk in soups, shakes, milk, and mashed potatoes. If you get too full too fast, try having more high-calorie foods or slices of foods as opposed to consuming the whole thing (raisins versus grapes, granola and Grape Nuts versus corn flakes, mango slices versus the whole mango). Limit drinking beverages to a half-hour before and after a meal. Drink mixed juices (apple/berry, peach/orange/banana as opposed to one juice beverages) for a higher calorie intake. With moderation, you may add in good fat sources to meals such as nuts, avocado, olives, and fatty fish (salmon and mackerel). Snack in between meals. Nuts, dried fruits, and yogurt are good options, but it's also important to find nutritious foods that you will enjoy. Have a nutritious snack before bedtime, such as a peanut butter sandwich.

you'll need to maintain more of a healthy eating and excerise lifestyle rather then just go back to eating junk foods, ya know? But your only 15! dont worry about it too much, just step on the scale once a week and if you gained a bit, try the next week(s) to take it back off. Congrats on losing the weight!

save the kitchen and the dining room table for cooking and eating try not to use it as a place to do work or other activities or you may be tempted to eat more

Eat constantly. snacks. Good food though, because you don't want to put on unhealthy weight! My boyfriend recently was trying to put on weight. He drank Ensure drinks (you can find them at local grocery stores) with meals. They are healthy, high in calories, and taste really good. It will add an extra 200-300 calories to your meals with just a can of it. Eat bigger meals too. I make my boyfriend very large breakfasts to start his day off with a lot of calories. just try and keep your calorie intake high -- but as i mentioned before -- eat healthy foods still! Good luck!
