Question: I got food poisoning last week and I had a sinus infection the week before. I had very little bodyfat and to begin with and I lost about ten pounds in the past two weeks. Most of it was muscle mass. My body is a lot slimmer and less defined than it had been. In a little more than two weeks school is starting and I am trying to put back the muscle to be able to compete and play well for my highschool water polo team. I want to be at my strongest going into the season. If I could put on even more weight than I had before I got sick it would be great. What should I do?

You have to start lifting weights right and eating correctly. There is a way to eat to gain weight and also a way to lift weights to get bigger and gain weight. For eating, you should eat more carbs, breads, whole grains, proteins, meats. Then for working out, you have to lift right, such as do more weight and only 6 reps, 3 sets of that exercise, and do 4-5 exercises.

Gaining muscle takes the same amount of focus and preparation as losing weight. Some important facts about gaining muscle: •You can't necessarily gain muscle without gaining some fat as well. •There are no magic foods, powders or pills that will allow you to gain muscle and lose fat at the same time. Some people can do this naturally (again, the genes), but most will gain some fat along with the muscle •Your body is very different from a bodybuilder--trying to gain mass to look like them is not the best idea. They have different muscle fibers than you and some may even be getting a little help from illegal substances. •If you're a teenager, you'll have a hard time changing your body dramatically. It's changing constantly and it will change even more as the years pass. •Gaining weight requires eating more and lifting more Gaining muscle requires that you eat more calories than you burn. For those with high metabolisms, that may seem impossible, but if you try a few of these tricks, you'll find that adding calories to your day is easier than you think: •Choose calorie-rich foods like granola, bagels, biscuits, avocados, olives, corn, meat, nuts, peanut butter, milk, yogurt and cheese. •Add extra calories to your meals by using milk instead of water for soups, sauces and hot cereals. •Sprinkle powdered milk into casseroles. •Add calorie-rich foods (like avocado, cheese and dressing) to sandwiches and salads •Mix beans, meat or cheese into pasta or side dishes •Snack on yogurt, shakes, crackers and dip •Keep a food diary for a week or so to get an idea of what you're eating and where you can add more calories The trick is to add calories without adding too much saturated fat. You can also consider downing smoothies or meal replacement shakes in between meals. Lift, Lift, Lift Once you get your calories under control, you need to start lifting weights. This will help you gain more muscle and help minimize the amount of fat you gain (although you should expect to gain some fat as well). Folks trying to gain muscle should: •Lift heavy. This means lifting enough weight that you can only complete about 6-8 repetitions of each exercise. The last few reps should be difficult--the last one should be really hard, but not impossible. •Have longer recovery periods between sets •Have more recovery days between workouts •Use spotters to avoid injury •Continue with cardio, but keep it at maintenance level--around 2-3 days of cardio a week to keep your heart in shape •Start with a full body program 2-3 nonconsecutive days a week, if you're a beginner. Allow your body a few weeks to get used to lifting weights before you tackle more intense routines.

first question have you been losing weight because you want to?i.e diet or are you losing weight for no apparant reason?if it is for no apparent reason i would contact a dr straight away to see what is behind it.if you have been losing it yourself through diet then you should be losing between 0.5 and 2lb a week anymore than that you will be losing muscle mass and not fat.to build up muscle mass you need to eat more protien as well as do strength exercise.starting off slowly at first with small weight and gradually building up your repeats and after that adding more weight.either way you should check with a dr first before starting any diet or exercise programn.hope this helps and good luck.

If you want to gain weight ,do as follows: 1. Some high heat food for three meals a day . A hot soup is a good choice . 2. Early for bed sleeping , late for up,and have a rest in the middle time after lunch . 3. Do not let yourself tired ,cool or hot. 4. Have your brain working as possible as you can. 5. keep ease of your mind. GOOD LUCK !

Hormonal fluctuations in young females may well be playing a large part in this. Take 4 Omega 3 fish oil supplements, daily: (certified free of mercury) it is best if consumed with an antioxidant, such as an orange, or grapefruit, or their FRESHLY SQUEEZED juice. If vitamin E is added, it should be certified as being 100% from natural sources, or it may be synthetic: avoid it, as with the B vitamins, should you decide to take them. Vitamin and health food stores are good sources, because they specialise in this area, and have a high turnover, so their products are less likely to be old. Memory improvement is addressed in considerable detail, with many weblinks, in section 41, at http://www.ezy-build.net.nz/~shaneris (also see section 19, on PMS; evening primrose oil may help; what is your diet like? Eat more in accordance with your "nutritional type", as shown in the searchbar, at http://www.mercola.com Google: "nootropics". The supplements, DHEA & Phosphatidyl Serine are some worth trying. Although ginkgo biloba has also been recommended, there are mixed reviews. If you are one of the 40% of people who are fairly suggestible, you may wish to consider professional hypnotherapy, or http://www.asktheinternettherapist.com/hypnosis_hypnotic_audiotapes.asp - Increasing Memory CD - MP3 & Concentration and Focus CD - MP3 or, at http://www.hypnosisdownloads.com/ enter "memory improvement" & "concentration" & "focus"in the searchbar. Ask for an answer in your dreams, about the ring, 3 times, after lights out; "tonight, in my dreams, I want to remember, when I wake, about what I did with the ring". Suggestions: Took it off to shower? Under the bed? When cooking? Locker, at school?
