•Eat three main meals per day that include some type of calorie dense foods such as cheese, seeds, beans or any complex carbohydrate. •At a minimum, eat three snacks per day. Snacks should be those that are high in calories, vitamins, and minerals but not high in sugar or fat. Nutritious snacks ideas include dried fruits, nuts, wheat crackers, protein bars. •Add a dietary supplement such as Ensure, Boost, or Carnation Instant Breakfast between or with meals. •Add powdered milk to soups, casseroles, shakes, smoothies, and milk. Add butter and oil to dishes. Such as a dab of butter in your oatmeal, or some oil in your pasta. •Drink a lot of pure fruit juice or milk with and between meals. Juices that are mixed with two or more juices (such as strawberry-kiwi) are higher in calories than a drink that is only one juice. There is also a product called GNC weight gainer. It is simply a powder that has 1,850 calories per ferving. You just mix it with milk. Other tips... 1) Count how many calories you eat in a normal day. Don't change anything, just eat like you normally would and count how many calories you consumed. This is an extremely important step, so try to be as exact as possible. Also, weigh yourself. 2) Starting the day after you counted calories, eat 500 calories MORE then you normally do. So, lets pretend that the day you counted calories you counted 2000. For the rest of the week, you would now eat 2500 calories a day. Instead of eating 3 big meals a day or eating all day all the time, spread those calories out over 5-6 smaller meals. Eat one meal every 2 and a half to 3 hours. To get big, you have to eat big! Remember that. 3) Weightlifting! Get in the gym and lift! This is another important step to how to gain weight, so make sure you are doing it correctly. For more information on weightlifting workout routines and splits, read the workout routines and splits section. 4) At the end of that week, weigh yourself. You'll notice you're gaining just after one week! Now, don't expect to see a 10lb increase. Gaining anymore then 1 or 2 pounds a week is unhealthy and means you're putting on way to much fat. So look for 1 or 2 pound gains at the end of the week. Don't sound like much? You can be gaining 5-8 pounds a month! 5) Heres an important one. At some point, you will stop seeing weight gain. At this point, you will have to eat even more. So, when you stop gaining for at least 2 weeks, it means it is time to start eating an extra 250 calories a day. Every time you see you haven't gained weight for at least 2 weeks, add an extra 250 calories. Good luck. :)

Well, I'm not a Dr. I looked up your age/weight here (http://www.halls.md/chart/women-weight-w.htm) and it seems that although you are still within healthy norms. It would help to know why you need to gain weight but generally people gain weight when calorie intake exceeds expenditure. This leads to being overweight though if you don't eat AND exercise. Don't forget the exercise part. Increase your daily calories, stretch and do moderate exercise and try to eat lots of protein to build muscle. Watch your sugar intake too. Also, look at older members of your family. If you come from a line of skinny people, like I do; those are the cards you were dealt. Exercise can help a lot in this area. Remember - making a large increase in calories without an exercise plan is like shopping with a credit card and no job.

if you want it bad enough this is what you should do: Start writing down your calories! Every day! Multiply your current body weight by 16. THAT is how many calories you should be eating Every single day! Break them down evenly amongst carbs, proteins, fats to make it easy. Eat like this for 2 weeks. Check the scale. Did you gain weight? If so, COOL, keep things as they are. If you did not gain weight, add 20% more calories to your day. Eat like that for 2 weeks. Check the scale. Did you gain weight? etc etc until you find the right amount of calories for YOU.

Gain muscle. Work out. Run, lift weights, all of that good stuff. Muscle weight more then fat, so that's a perfect way to gain weight without fat. (:

I would wait. When you get older, you will gain more weight. I was a really, really skinny person in middle school. I wore a size 00. Now I am a size 6.

What you read was bad information. If you approach bodybuilding by trying to learn from bodybuilders, you're going to be disappointed...with a few exceptions. Bodybuilders get by on genetics, steroids, and bad information. If you want to learn, study the science. Bodybuilders may train for 10 hours a week. A farm field hand will work hard for 10-12 hours a day. Don't kid yourself about bodybuilding. It's not all that difficult compared to what migrant field workers do, for example. Bodybuilders don't work hard and don't need lots of calories. For example, a 200 pound bodybuilder who trains hard for one hour will burn about 500-550 calories. And, they can't train more than about 10 hours per week without over training. That would amount to only about 6000 calories per week for just the anaerobic (muscle building) workouts. Here's are some tips to help you get off on the right foot. 1. Lift heavy working the muscles to failure with every set except a warm up (flushing) set. Keep the weight so heavy you cannot do more that 6-10 reps. 2. Don't over train. Over training is probably the biggest mistake newbie bodybuilders make because the credulous and naive tend to think more is always better. Check the first set of every exercise in your routine and if you have not improved something (one more rep or half rep or better form, etc), you may be over training. Pay attention to under performing muscle groups and if there's no progress for three weeks try adding another day of rest (recovery time) between workouts for that muscle group. 3. Change it up from time to time. Keep your program fresh and fun. Experiment and note the results. Modifying and building in variations will help you build a more well rounded physique and prevent adaptation...the dreaded plateaus. Done properly, bodybuilding is hard work so take a vacation from it every few months to keep yourself dynamic and psyched and to avoid stagnation and monotony. 4. Eat a proper diet and don't take supplements. Supplement makers know how to push your buttons and make you think the crap they sell will make you huge. If you just read what most of the clowns in this forum believe about protein shakes, you'll see what I mean. They're mostly products of advertising and know nothing about science. Your body needs food, not supplements. 5. Lifting heavy is as mental as it is physical. Before you begin your workout, get your psych on. Don't socialize while working out and don't allow yourself to be distracted while lifting. Keep your focus and concentration at all times so when that last rep comes, you'll be ready to do it....and one more too. 6. Study. It's your body and your health so prepare yourself to become your own personal trainer so you don't have to trust your butt busting to some musclehead who will have you wasting time and energy. The worst people to learn bodybuilding from are bodybuilders as counter-intuitive as that may sound. They run on genes, steroids, and bad information. Get your information from where the people who train our Olympians get theirs...science. Study the basics of anatomy, kinesiology, and physiology. 7. Get to know Scooby. Scooby is the best personal trainer I've been able to find on the web. He's a good guy to get to know. He's been where you want to go, has the bod to prove his techniques work, has 140+ videos for you to watch and learn from, will show you how to get big and eat healthy on the cheap, and won't try to sell you anything. You can learn a lot from Scooby by "osmosis" just from watching his videos. I know he doesn't look like a genius, but he's got solid information. Go here ---> http://www.youtube.com/user/scooby1961 to watch all of his YouTube videos and you'll get a good preliminary education for a beginner bodybuilder. And also check out his website here ---> http://scoobysworkshop.com/general_philo... You can use it for a bunch of things but you might want to try the custom workout plan here ---> http://scoobysworkshop.com/WorkoutPlanGe... 8. Create goals for yourself. Examples include excellence in a sport or occupation, strength, endurance, flexibility, systemic fitness, general health and well being, body sculpting, body awareness, coordination, poise and comportment, balance, body composition, mental acuity, educational experience, etc. Keep records of your biometrics so you can detect changes in weight, measurements, body fat, strength, endurance, etc. MS Excel is a good place to store data so you an plot graphs and charts but a spiral notebook works too. It's important to be able to see where you've been so you can appreciate your progress and know what needs to be changed for better performance. It's also necessary to see that you're meeting your goals. You can't measure success without goals and it's little successes that keep us motivated to make the big successes. Good luck and good health!! ♠
