  • Try doing protein shakes and protein pills. Protein is good for your health, but in excess helps you build muscle and body tone (and weight). It won't necessarily give you "fat" but will help you get to a healthy weight. Also take your vitamins everyday, as that can help your body regulate also.

  • That sure ain't my problem, but I can sympathize because my SO has an extremely hard time keeping his weight up. He is all of 160lbs and his resting metabolism is nearly 4000 calories (if he didn't drag his butt out of bed all day, that is how much he would burn just on his own). He is really active and into marathons and stuff, but it is incredibly hard for him to stay at 160. You should see how he eats...he goes to McDonalds every day and gets 30-40 chicken nuggets, a double cheeseburger, 2 large fries and a pop and eats it all. He's gonna kill himself in cholesterol eating like that. Now if I ate the cheeseburger and half a fry I would be sick and 2 lbs heavier! I think you've just got to accept it for what it is or you'll be eating all day long and frustrating yourself.
