I am starting to become VERY annoyed with being skinny. The comments i have gotten every single day of my life run through my head constantly. I am 5'6" and i weigh atleast 100 lbs. or less. Our scale is a bit off. I did try protein shakes but they taste soo awful. I tried bulking up, working out everyday. But stopped that because i couldnt keep it up everyday. So if yu have a similar problem, or know how to solve the problem please help me out. Any shakes that DON'T taste extremely nasty? Or perhaps some pills i could take to slow it down? I am willing to try anything at this point. But please don't waste your time by saying eat a lot.I eat well over 3,000 a day. I went 3 days eating a whole pizza by myself along with a jumbo bag of potato chips. I eat like no other. I just need a boost so the food goes atleast somewhere. I'm not looking to get fat, But to have a butt and somewhat of some thighs would be nice. :)

I have seen one or two people that are really skinny too. I think you should be quite thankful that you aren't fat- some people try their best to lose weight. To slow down you metabolism, starve yourself.. it's true, by doing that you slow down your digestive system o something, doctors said it on tv.

I think you should eat more protein food like meat, chicken or fish and lessen the high-carbo food like bread, rice or chips. Natural protein will help you gain weight and help you build muscles easier.

I have been labebelled as skinny ever since young and even though I do eat many meals throughout the day , I still remained underweight. I guess my metabolic was rather high. Even now, after having given birth to 2 kids, I'm still underweight although I can feel that my metabolic rate has slowed down and I've started putting weight on my tummy and thighs. I think the most important thing is to be happy with just the way you are and to eat healthily. When you feel good, you'll also look good:)

Your weight and height pretty much match for a normal, healthy person. Of course, I don't know what your bone structure is like. Your photo looks quite normal as well. Why don't you try to build up muscle by exercise rather than eating junk food? Butt and thighs - bicycle!
