At the risk of wet noodles flung at me (dons on suit of amour and helmet) So many of my friends have had problems with weight....usually being overweight, some have taken drastic measures and have had gastric bypass surgery. Well my problem is the opposite. With a few exceptions I've been rail thin all my life. In fact, when I was a kid, my mother took me to the doctor and he prescribed a medication to make me gain weight, and yes maybe gained a bit but still remained thin. The only, ONLY time in my life I started gaining weight was when I started heavy duty cooking myself..I taught myself French cooking, Spanish, Oriental, Italian, and oh boy the pounds came on. You see no wonder I was thin most of my life. My mother was a lousy cook...to eat what she cooked was an endurance test. If she could have burned water she would have. My grandmother was also a lousy cook. Most of my childhood I endured "TV" (frozne) dinners or if cooking by scratch the food was (coughs coughs) well done...burnt to a crisp. Then I started cooking...I must have inherited my great grandmother's skill in cooking as she was known as THE COOK. Anyway, when I did gain weight from my own cooking I managed to get it off naturally by cutting down and doing modifications of the recipes I cooked to make them healthier and not so much fat in them. Still, I haven't gained any weight since then, if anything I seemed to have lost even more weight. I no longer wear shorts or sleeveless tops since my arms and legs are pathetically thin..I almost look anorexic but I'm not. I eat small mini meals all day/night long and eat whenever I want (covers head from the wet noodles...can you send that with alfredo sauce btw??) I eat healthy..btw...I'm on a more vegetarian diet but still don't deprive myself....eat eggs, cheeses and SOME meat...eat veggies, fruits, yogurt, etc. I use olive oil for cooking and also butter...so I'm getting a good well rounded combo of proteins, fats, carbs, etc-------but I need to gain weight!!!!!!!! I wear a size 4 jeans and have serious saggy butt... I have no medical problems to explain my lack of weight...no hyper or hypo thyroidism for instance--- So any suggestions how to GAIN weight? Do any of you have my problem???

Okay everyojne, READY, AIM, FIRE!!! Wow, you don't know how fortunate you are. So you are healthy, you don't smoke and you can't gain weight? I was like that during my teen years, but once I got married and had children, that put a stop to it..My son takes after me, he is so skinny that he wears long sleeves and pants even in the summer because how skinny his arms and legs are. With him we did everything, from taking him out to eat and allowing him to have a large milkshake hoping to get weight on him, to eating more sensible with more fruits and vegetables..(problem with tis was, the only veggies he'd eat was canned green beans and corn) We even got him some protein shakes with no gain... Have you discussed this with your doctor? Or though we tried protein shakes on my son, we may have gotten the wrong thing. I think the health food store has powders to gain weight and maybe you can try that.

I take after my father's side of the family. The joke was that my mother/grandmother could gain weight just by looking at food, while my father's side could eat a whole cow at each meal and not gain weight, so guess I inherit my father's side As for the protein drinks from health stores...they're expensive and don't know if they would accept food stamps at a health food store....also one has to be careful with them...I had heard a lot were recalled by the FDA

Ah yes the expense, which is why we relied on milkshakes at fast food restaurants.Every other kid in America gained weight eating out except for mine and it is because of my side of the family too. My dad was always real skinny too, so unfortunately I don't know if there is really help for people who can't gain weight..I wouldn't suggest you do what I did, have children, because I am sure I would still be skinny if I had none.. I take it you don't have the means to talk to a doctor? Because maybe they can help you determine the best and less expensive way to gain weight..

Well, if I didn't know better I'd say you were bragging........but I've had troubles with my weight all my life. I'm not obese but I've gained esp. since my two heart attacks last year when my activities were cut back on drastically. You are merely one of a fine FEW who cannot gain weight. Do be proud you are a size 4 and not a 14 or a 16 which I struggle to stay in.......... Just EAT is my advice. Eat all day, eat chocolate, sweets, don't do much, just eat......... I can look at a candy bar and gain 20 lbs ! LOL, I could hate you for being rail thin but I can't do that cuz you suffer but in a different way than I do !!!!!!!!!! Alls I can say, is EAT, MORE AND MORE AND MORE. Besides as age catches up with you, you will be more apt to gain anyways.....I hope LOL

Bragging? Being under-weight is just as bad as being over-weight. If you're under-weight you feel just as bad and self conscious as you would being over-weight. Size 4 is unhealthy, just as being a size 14 or 16 can be. Obviously it also depends on how tall you are and age and other factors but it can be very unhealthy to be that thin also. The amount of food you eat has nothing to do with whether you can gain weight or not. It's how you eat and what you eat. I've the same problem all my life until I had children and I'm still "skinny" according to most people that know me. I'd say I'm average now but people see things differently.

One thing I can't do is eat too many sweets. I have low blood sugar and even though low I have to restrict my intake of sweets just like a diabetic has to. I agree wit camomom...one who is thin like she and I are can be self conscious about our appearance. As for weight gain as I get older...mmmm...I'm already going to be 55 fairly soon...LOL

I have the same problem.It seems the more I sit around and eat,The more my weight drops. As for the sag,I am in that club too.. What I can tell ya is when ,I work out that's when pounds come on.Not many 5 to 7 though it looks much better than my hanging saggy skin.It also helps with the embarrassment of being to thin.Most people I know are also heavy and dislike the fact that ,I am thin.Nothing I can do about it.But yet they continue to tell me to eat crap foods that my body cannot handle.Try working out and see what happens muscle is lean and weighs more than fat or cellulite. I also eat healthy with the belief ,If I cannot read it .I will not eat it.Good Luck to you as the above is the only thing that has ever given me any sense of looking normal instead of stick skinny.

Hi dear friends, when people talk about weight gain they just think of eating and lots of eating, but it is not true at all. With a little intelligent body building and workout you can easily gain weight. With the help of correct workout and some tips you can easily gain weight. I have some Ayurveda ( Indian traditional medicine system )treatments and tips which i am going to share with you here. I will explain few points related to weight loss and will explain simultaneous. Inheritance is one of the reason for loss weight or under weight. It may be due to gens. May be parents or any one of them has nature of not getting the weight. Another cause could be absorption - there is a possibility persons inseminate may not be able to absorb essential materials or end products of digestions which may result for under weight. Digestive problem is also a part of under weight. Knowledge is also an issue, person may not be aware about proper quantity and proportion for intake. I am mentioning one home made remedy which my mom used for me . Take 1tbsp of Ghee and 1tbsp of sugar. Prepare a paste for this mixture and eat empty stomach but slowly. have your dinner after 30 minutes it would surely work.

@Capsicum: I'm the same way...if I can't understand the ingredients in food, especially processed foods and feel like I need a science degree, I won't eat it either, which is why I home cook everything. And yes do think I need to exercise more, have to admit to being a tad lazy in that dept. I spend a lot of my time sitting in front of the computer instead..LOL @varunarora: You did touch one area that is true with me. My mother and grandmother were the type of people that would gain weight just by looking at food, while the family joke was that my father's side could eat a whole cow at every meal and not gain weight...uh, guess which side I inherited? I'll see about that Ghee stuff....I'm very much into natural remedies myself instead of medications that have side effects

First and foremost if you need to gain or lose weight it would be good to have a talk with you primary care doctor. He or she may refer you to a registered dietician. The dietician will do a very indepth consult to determine your unique health situation. The consult will determine what changes you can make in your diet, exercise, and even sleep habits. Yes, sleep does affect weight lose or gain. Each person is an individual. Dieticians are trained in all aspects of nutrition, not just what we put in our mouths. In the mean time, if you like ice cream, milkshakes are guaranteed to put on a few pounds if consumed regularly.

Looks like you've managed to answer your own question in the process there...Just dump the modifications you've made to your recipes,leave them as they were,and You'll put the weight on...btw..You are aware that the mini meal thing is the ideal way to lose weight or keep it off? What You're doing there is keeping your metabolism stoked eating that way,so you're burning it off as fast as you eat it...I think I should definitely swap eating habits with you!
@pyewacket (44036)

Well I dumped the modifications to recipes since they were high in cholesterol. For instance the French Sauce Mornay...the original recipe calls for butter, flour, cream, egg yolks and cheese....I modified it by eliminating the cream and use regular milk and no egg yolks As for mini meals that I eat all day/night long...I got in the habit of eating that way as I found if I ate a heavy meal I felt groggy...you know the same way one feels after a holiday dinner?

Unless it is totally gross to you , and I can understand it if it is, you Have to add red meat to your diet. And Cheese , Real cheese, And have what you will see as a heavy meal for dinner , not for lunch.You have to exercise less.If doesn't work, then The G-ds want you to be thin.As long as you are healthy, it is ok. I am and have always been in shape, Round! Many wanted me to lose weight and I never did until recently. I am back to the size I was in highschool. Move over, as soon as I write this next line I'll get hit with those noodles too.I lost weight without even trying! All I did was eat less and less often and move more. so I guess you have to do the opposite. But if you don't feel good or the change in eating habits makes sick , physically or Mentally, Stop it. So you are a naturally thin woman, big deal!

No actually I think I need to exercise more, like some kind of weight "training" as I need to build up muscle mass...I sit on my butt too long as it is in front of the computer. I've cut out red meat though since I've gone more vegetarian..yes, always eat real cheese too. I also can't eat large meals since I get that wonderful groggy feeling, that's why I eat mini meals all day/night long (Puts helmet back on as sarahruthbeth flings noodles)

Since I don't have money to go to a gym, I thought of a "brilliant" way to do weight training.......I'll fill two gallon sized water bottles with some water say at first a quarter amount of water at first (then add more as I go along).....then slide a pole (using an old mop pole) through the handles of the water bottles and do arm stretches and standing crunches----I just tested it out......works great!!!!!!!

Drink Slim fast WITH every meal or after you eat a meal or some other similar drink they have tons of them, Ensure is one of them. Count calories and make sure that you are getting more calories then recommended. I was never more then 97lbs until I had my kids and now I'm only 140lbs after having 2 of them. I was always sickeningly skinny. Eat 3 larger meals a day and try not to snack as much. I know it sounds strange but if you eat more frequent smaller meals it will help keep the weight OFF. I don't know if you like milk but try adding a couple scoops of carnation instant breakfast (or something similar) to every glass whenever you have milk. Healthy eating. Getting all your vitamins and minerals, will help. Don't eat out often, they cook the good stuff out of the food, especially fast food. Try to cook for yourself and don't use TV dinners or processed crap. You said it yourself: "I eat small mini meals all day/night long and eat whenever I want" BAD BAD way to gain weight. Perfect way to LOSE weight. I know from experience. I was a size 00 at one point. I was a size 0 before having my 1st child and only 92lbs. I also responded at the other place with the same info.

The thing is I really can't eat large meals. I find if I eat large meals I get that groggy feeling like one does at a holiday dinner and one overstuffs oneself. I'm not sure about the Slim Fast or Ensure stuff..they have a lot of crap in the as far as ingredients..just betting they have High Fructose Corn Syrup which I avoid like the plague. As for cooking...I haven't been to a fast food restaurant (or any restaurant) in ages as I just can't afford t..I do all my own cooking

Maybe if you slowly add to your meals and slowly take away from your snacks??? maybe that would help. Slimfast and Ensure probably do have junk in them, I don't know, I've never looked at the labels but that's what I was told to do when I was trying to gain. Maybe ask a nutritionist or doctor if there's anything out there similar that doesn't have the junk in it. Maybe even at a health food store. It's great that you do your own cooking. I wish I could cook. Hubby does most of ours. Thank you and your welcome. I'm glad you like them.

No, I don't have your problem. But many women who do end up with broken bones. So a little weight for padding is a good thing, but strong bones is a better thing. Strong Women Stay Young is a book by a female Doctor who has helped many people, mostly women, but some men, not loose the whatever percentage of bone and muscle mass that we all loose every year after age 30. It should be a book that you can get in a library. Do the exercises in the book (to music, have fun with it) and use canned food in your house or oatmeal boxes, anything to start. My butt isn't saggy because I do all the butt exercises on Fit TV. Muscle and bone weigh more than fat. You don't have the testosterone levels of a man, so you won't get muscular like a man. When you exercise, you'll probably eat a little more and enjoy it, too. At any rate, that Dr. was really cool. She went to a Nursing home and people in wheelchairs ended up using walkers, many using walkers ended up using canes, many using canes ended up being able to walk using the railings on the side of the walls. It's a wonderful book, give it a shot at reading it. REmember, don't do crazy things like a hundred push ups. Start slowly, one of each thing is better than none.After my hysterectomy, I could only do one abdominal exercise in each direction. Like Denise Auston said on her vido about C-sections. Start with one.

LOL--no when I said I have saggy butt I meant my jeans are saggy in the butt and loose.. I'm going to have to do some kind of exercise program though to build myself and get better muscle tone....I think because I sit so much in front of the computer has weakened my system..also having bad arthritis/joint problems doesn't help. I only just got a DVD (provided free btw via Rise Network which is a RA organization) that gives exercises for those with RA problems--so going to give that a shot

i can definitely empathise with you! i'm 5'9 and weighs a miserable 115 pounds. i've had enough with people commenting how skinny i am. i've tried eating a lot of junk food and the only thing that went up was my cholesterol level. i don't eat breakfast but i have lunch, dinner and sometimes supper. i'm beginning to think that all of us have our own 'fat' food. that is, food that makes us put on weight. i'm guessing mine is bread, coz that's the food i'm not eating a lot. i'm a rice person and can eat two big bowls at one sitting. thing about putting on weight is the same as losing them, input versus output. if you move a lot, you'll need more calories than the average person. maybe we should start calorie-counting too, to make sure we eat more than enough...

hi pyewacket, yes it's been quite some time. my mum was hospitalise for three months so i'm not on most of the time. i guess, to me at least, health is more important than anything else. if you have to eat tons of unhealthy food and suffer diseases as a consequence, then it's not worth the extra pounds.

I am usually one of the ones trying to LOSE weight. I am not overweight, but I could be very easily. The only time I had to gain weight, was when I came home from the hospital and had lost about 15 pounds. Then I ate everything. Stuff that I liked but usually wouldn't eat, I could eat! I loved it! It didn't take me long to gain it back, but eventually I was back to just eating healthy and low calorie foods.

I wouldn't suggest eating "junk foods". You want to gain weight, but you still want to be healthy. Besides, if you want to keep it on, you will have to change your habits and you don't want to have that as a habit. Maybe you could do some strength training. Muscle weighs more than fat anyway and you would be healthier, and probably look better.

What you will want to do is go get yourself a list of all the healthy dieting foods. All of them! Then you throw it out! And eat just the opposite CONTINUOUSLY!! Not just occasionally but ongoing for a period of three to six months and you should have gained a bit of weight. Good luck to you!

Are you trying to gain because you are very under weight or just for personally reasons? I would thing that if your doctor has concerns then he can help you. If not, and you don't care for any caloric foods, you aren't going to gain. It is a choice you have to make.

hi pyewacket. slings another round of wet noodles with delicious cheesy sauce on them and shrimp scampi,lord I'm making myself hungry. lol. Just one word of caution, do go get checked up for diabetes just to'be on the safe side if you have not had a diabetes check up lately. Sometimes some diabetics lose weight and cannot seem to put any on as they have encountred pancreatic poop out. I am not saying you are one as you sound healthy to me, and concerned about eating right. I am sure you have nothing to worry about but as a diabetic I do try to make people just get that yearly diabetic checkup. its just a save quard. some people get diabetes type one just all of a sudden and they lose weight unlike those like me type 2 that gained weight and triggered the darned disease. lol I have beeen too sedentary so have gained so not needed pounds. couldnt' get the noodles to go so sat here savoring imaginary noodles. one thing no calories that way.

Brown rice is good and will help add weight. It's healthier then white rice too. Pye, I don't know if it was mentioned here or at the other site but you said about you having to be careful with what you eat, like a diabetic does. Brown rice is what's recommended for diabetics.

actually, its very easy to gain weight than reducing. you just eat foods high in carbs and fats. if your a filipino, try to eat more rice than the viand. have ice cream like almost everyday, drink milk, eat chocolates and don't do too much exertion or much work. skip a meal per day only breakfast or lunch then you'll see you will be craving a lot and eat too much during dinner. i know this is very unhealthy but its up to you if you will follow. take care and God bless!

It's actually just as hard top gain weight as it is to lose it. eating more carbs and fat is the unhealthy way to go and can actually help keep the weight off. I'm sorry but that's all very bad advice and it does not work. I've seen a nutritionist before for the same issues of being too thin.

I agree with camomom...eating a lot more carbs and fats isn't the way to go as one has to account for cholesterol problems with too much fat. Also I can't skip meals due to low blood sugar problems which is why I sort of eat all the time to begin with

Few people have that problem. Most have it the other way around. Well, if hose people, who are fat, followed a step-by-step procedure how to loose weight, in your case, that step-by-step procedure is that procedure that you have to violate. If fat people tend not to eat fatty foods, then you should it fatty foods, if fat people need to exercise a lot, then you don't exercise. Just do the opposite of what those who wanted to loose weight are doing. But there is one thing that people who wanted to loose weight and gain weight must have in common. It is the WILL!!! The will to make a difference. Good Luck!

lol...this was the same problem I had while I was growing up. I wanted to put on weight!!! Then when I was around 18, I started getting a little 'rounded'. And I was happy the way I was. After my second child, I gained more weight....not too much except in certain areas which I think I need to work on. I'm lazy about working out...so it's going to take time to focus on those areas. But coming back to your question, my suggestion for gaining weight would be to have more than one baby...lol....my mom gained weight after my little sister was born...he he.....well...this probably works only in my family:P
