Does anyone know how to gain weight in a healthy manner?

I am underweight and struggle with gaining. Any tips, good foods to eat? I need to put on around 20 pounds. Been to doctor, always been small but here lately just keep losing.

  • Years ago...I was having trouble gaining weight. I gained 15lbs by drinking a slim fast WITH my meals. The ones in the cans are gross, but the powder mixes are yummy. Throw it in the blender with ice and milk (probably whole milk in your case) and YUM!

  • how many calories do you eat a day? add 500, or two snacks at 250 each. or add a yogurt to every meal. they are about 150. or something else you like that will add calories and fat to your diet.
