Just to gain weight, eat high starch foods. White sugars.
But to gain weight safely, workout. Build muscle mass. The starchy foods and sugars, that adds fat, not muscle.

If all you want to do is gain weight, drink beer!

But...........what's the point of "gaining weight"? How tall are you and how much do you currently weigh?

Only if you have some kind of eating disorder should you even be considering this.

And consider it can be your body's metabolism.

I wish I was thin again! I lost my metabolism somewhere and I can't find it!

I gained 25 lbs in 9 months eating at the prime rib buffet 4 times per week, at the same time as I was consuming quite a bit of beer every week at home too. This was at the age of 34-35 when I drove a semi for the Coors Brewery in Colorado. I had plenty of physical labor too, or likely I would have gained even more.

I'm 6'5". In high school I weighed between 150 pounds in 10th grade and 170 lbs as a senior. I used to wear several layers of clothing under my leather jacket to make myself look heavier when I was young and skinny. By my 2nd year in college I was 190 lbs, and by the age of 21, after drinking lots of beer, I was 215 lbs, which lasted until I worked at Coors, then I stayed at 245 lbs until I turned 40. Just watch when your metabolism slows down around or after age 40, as you will then start packing the weight on. Nobody bothered to warn me about my metabolism, and by age 41 I weighed 275 lbs even though I cut way back on intake. Nobody bothered to warn me to watch what I ate when I tried to quit smoking either, and after 7 months off of cigarettes at the age of 44 I weighed 315 lbs. Now at age 52 I am the size of an NFL lineman.

The only way that you can put weight on is if you eat and drink enough and don't use as many calories as you are eating and drinking. So stay away from the gym while you hit the prime rib buffet several times every week and be sure to pound a case of beer per week and soon you will be a lot heavier too. Then you go back to the gym and try to turn all of that flab into muscle!!!

jb,

You sound like an ectomorph. I suggest you pick up, "Arnold Schwarzennegger's Encyclopedia of Bodybuilding."

It will talk about diet and exercise...(including weights... types,reps, angles etc...which all lead to atrophy.

Somewhere they will get into body styles. The ectomorphs code is: "Never run when you can walk, never walk when you can sit, and never sit when you can lie".


Pump up the Volume (M.A.R.S.)

work out on weights and eat more protein (meat, egg whites) they told us to eat like 4 egg whites 4 times a week when i was training in the football team.

also eat a lot of carbs like potatoes, pasta n stuff. there are some carbs bars too.

in training they told us not to eat lots of sugar to gain weight, sugar was to eat only bfore a game bcause .. i dont remember why but u should eat carbs n protein, that is

but u should work out. if u eat a lot n dont work out all u re gaining is fat

there's a nutrition student here i hope he sees this thread !
