Metabolism is sooo high.How to gain some weight

I weigh 86-89 and I'm 4'11" my metabolism is so high, my mom is 5'6" and weighs 120 so that's where I get it from. But I'm trying to gain weight and I know you have to ovulate and have a certain amount of body fat and I would like to gain 20 pounds but healthy though I don't want to load up on fast food and fried foods. Do you think I can even conceive and carry a baby to full term? My periods are 26-40 days. Help please?!?!

  • have you gone to the doc and had a through check up? you could try having a snack in between meals like between breakfast an dlunch had a piece of fruit or some yogurt then between lunch and dinner a boiled egg or some cheese then after dinner have something sweet or some fruit crackers, etc.

  • Talk to your doctor on some high fat healthy foods. I know they recommend whole milk and peanut butter for children that need to gain weight.
