  • There is no such thing as a slow or fast just are not consuming sufficient calories. You need to eat more calories than you burn.

    I would suggest eating as fruit as you desire before each meal and a large green salad daily for health.

    Try using or something similar to track your calorie intake and see where you may not be eating enough.

  • I also wanted to gain weight. Eating a lot never helped. I had to change what I was eating to finally gain it. I've eaten a lot of carbs, A LOT of carbs, meat, and starchy foods, basically what everyone on diets avoid and managed to gain about 10 pounds. Now, I weigh a happy 125-128. Of course, now I worry about my cholesterol.
