    Well it sounds like you possess a naturally slight frame. If you were clinically obese, they'd have something to say about that too. If you do wanna beef up a little bit, I'd recommend eating larger quanities of healthy food such as chicken, fish, some steak, pasta, fruit, veg etc) and incorporating some weight training in to your fitness regime. You may find it takes a while, but the work will bear fruition. Good luck.

    Well, carbs like pasta, chips and etc usually make you gain weight. Usually you can find shakes for losing weight but also ones with loads of calories to help you gain weight. Goods luck hunny. :hug:

    Dont eat loads of carbs I dont think thats a good idea, you need to add bulk with muscle not fat, and slowly not suddenly.

    Yeah that's possible, too. I think your best bet is eat meat, veggies, some carbs and I'd recommend one of those shakes you can buy that are suppose to put the weight on you, and they are healthier way to approach it. Loading on carbs usually makes you gain weight but depending on your body and how much you eat may not be good but pastas can help you gain. But once again.. I say the shake. :tongue:

    Wow I have the same problem!! I'm sickenly thin and I eat a ton. I've tried a lot of different things and nothing seems to work for me. I guess I would suggest eating a lot of fast food. but that's not really healthy.
