Hello everybody! I am a 18 years old boy, with only 1.7m in height and a terrible 110 pounds in weight. I am so thin and light, which I really don't want. I eat many a day, but I still cannot become fatter. I like sports, is it because I like to move a lot, so that I cannot become fatter? It is lucky that I am still healthy, but this make me not looking good and it is difficult for me to buy clothings. Can anyone help me?

Dude you have to earn more on foods rich in carbohyrates and proteins like rice, noodles, pasta, potatoes, fish, beef, pork, chicken, milk, egg whites, tofu and cheese. Also try some supplements to increase your body's metabolism. This will help you to gain more weight, and also you have to excercise to control and monitor your weight. Try lifting some weights, but also lift only those you think you can..

By the way, if I sleep so late, will it affect my metabolism? Since I need to prepare for my public exam, I need to study for a long time everyday.

If you stay up late because for a valid reason, like exams. I think you can always regain it, just try not to abuse more of yourself!;)

Uh..you must be very thin then. I also have sum friends who are struggling to gain more weight but they dont seem to gain any weight. I think it depends on your metabolism -which may be too good-. Im a girl, but i was thin too. I drank milk everynite before going to bed and here i am now. I have gained more weight. Try eating more at dinner..

Have you tried working out at the gym? As in weights? If you're doing a lot of cardiovascular exercise, such as basketball, you're burning a lot of energy by increasing your metabolism. Doing weights (resistance training) tends to bulk you up more, increasing the size of the muscles you work on. Also, eating more protein (ie meats, protein shakes, etc.) can help with bulking up.

MJ's in NBA Finals 1998 Game 5 - Following Game 5 of the 1998 Finals,Michael would walk
off the United Center floor for what proved to be the last time.
Oh, I see. I think that playing basketball can help us to build up muscle as well. Thank you for your response, littlemoo!
