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".

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 !

I agree w/ daniel or you can use weight gainer. I think its faster then just eating meat eggs and etc.

Milk, energy drinks and juices should be added to your diet. These foods are high in sugars and therefore release a lot of calories. Drink at least one glass of each during the day.Workouts are important, but not the ones which help you lose weight. Indulge in workouts which help you build muscle mass. These include weight lifting and floor exercises which help build lean muscle mass.

no offense but this forum had some god awful advice lol you want to eat high protein, high fat, high complex carbohydrate foods every 3 hours. Whole eggs, peanut butter (all natural), lean beef, salmon, fish oils, olive oils, whey protein, sweet potatoes, brown rice, fruits, vegetables. Weight train with heavy compound movements 3 x a week and work in the 6-10 rep range

I am trying all this already for years, but I just also don't gain any weight. I am quite tall and thin and if getting sick I am always on the edge of underweight and it feels horrible. I loose weight quickly, but gaining it back takes ages.

I eat a lot (and healthy), but also for me it doesnt work. I understand the urge to gain a few pounds, because for me personally I would also feel physically a bit better if I had a little reserve.

LOL, move to Texas for ten years.

Seriously when l lived there l gained 15 to 20 lbs and stayed there at 195/215 untill l disclosed. Then l progressively wasted over four years, looked like a crack head POW and hair loss too. I went down into the 160's in Aug 2009 then went real bad homeless and neurotic/psychotic mumbling and walking the town without dignity. Went in the Doc told me l lost 14 more lbs l knew l was bad, my body was having some malnourishment issues and there was little l could do to gain weight until March 2011 about five months after SS disability kicked in.
Along with the external/external factors l always did have dietary concerns before disclosure but the gut and bowels went redline with psychosomatics, stress and tension.
So... now just over four years and l'm back up to the mid-180's and could use some muscle back. The hair l pulled out is probably history, just kidding, but l did clasp my head a lot. LOL
I eat a lot of pork and potato, lots of alvocado, rice and good ol SOS. Lots of breads and big servings.

SOS

1 lb of good ground beef
3 cloves of Shallots (cool lil onions)
4 fist size potatoes (your choice)
1 med yam
Couple cups of whole milk
Butter
Cayanne pepper (pinch)
Salt/Pepper
Oregano
Bit of flour

In this order;

Do your potatoes fried up in a skillet, season when half cooked with the shallots and oregano. Make sure to chop the yam first and add to the pan a few minutes before putting in the regular spuds. When they are al dente cover and remove from heat and they'll completely cook and be moist while the SOS is cookin up.

In a goodly sized pan fry the ground beef and when fully cooked drain off excesss oil and add at least a whole 1/4 lb of butter, remove heat, sprinkle like a good snow dusting the flour over the cooked ground beef and stir adding enough flour to absorb the melted butter. Add like two cups of whole milk and bring heat again at medium and stir. Don't let it go to fast or simmer unattended, this gets to finger dipping warm and begans to thicken quickley.
Add the pinch of cayanne and salt/pepper a bit. Best to add salt at the table to taste. Heat untill good and hot but don't go to boil ever.
Some folk like it ove rice, toast ot egg noodles.
Ate it in the Marines and been making this variation ever since.

To gain the weight and muscles never use any weight gain steroids or supplement, these will lead to various health complications for your.
Always focus on healthy foods and exercises to gain your body weight and muscles. Join a gym and do some cardio and weight exercises along with healthy diet to gain your muscles.

Hi Jbh,
To gain weight increase your number of daily meals and add cheese, milk, yogurt, meat, potato, root beats, eggs, fish, banana, mango and rice more in your daily meals. Consume lots of proteins and increase your calories intake. Lift weights, take supplements and drink energy fluids.

Well according to me high calories food is important for weight gain. We should use protein because protein is good thing for weight gaining. Drink protein shake daily.
