Weight Gain?

My boyfriend is slowly losing weight and we would like help in selecting a weight gain formula from (GNC?). He is 47 and healthy, plus he eats good. There are so many different formulas out there to choose from. Does anyone have names of specific ones with the pros and cons of each type, or any other suggestions of what we could do to help him gain weight? He has a normal exercise level so more excercise will make him more fit, but not necessarily gain weight.

If he is lifting weights add more weight and cut the reps. Do very heavy squats slowly.
Weight gain formulas are generally a waste of time and money. Just eat more of what he eats now.  (+ info)

Weight gain?

I am 18 and weigh 8 stones. Not healthy. Can anyone tell me What is the best way to gain weight. Eating loads of food doesn't help. I probably eat as much as two people. Any tips, advice, help

Eat a balanced diet. Follow the food pyramid as close as you can, but I would try to eat a 3-4 tablespoons of peanut butter each day. It's a good source of protein and has a good mix of fats that will put some weight on your frame.

Also, get out and exercise. If you are eating plenty, particularly protein, then any type of resistance exercise (weight lifting, calesthenics, etc.) should start to put muscle on you. This will eventually make you start gaining weight.

You say that you eat enough for two people, but I doubt that this is the case. You must balance your diet and refrain from snacking. If you mostly consume junk food, then you should switch to a healthier alternative.

Being healthy is hard work, but it's worth it. Health should be your primary goal, not gaining weight. You may come to the point where you realize that you are just a naturally thin person. That is an okay conclusion to arrive at so long as you are healthy.  (+ info)

Weight GAIN?


I have been trying to put on weight for many months
any bright ideas share with me.

Just keep on hogging all the time, Eat cheese burgers, butter sandwich, pizzas thats it  (+ info)



I wouldn't think gaining weight would be a problem. Eat fatty foods. but don't stuff yourself with candy it will make you unhealthy.

Spend a week or two eating macaroni and cheese, lasagna, junk food ect but don't over do it. Youll make yourself sick and fat. Moderation is great thing to have :D  (+ info)

You could eat things like pizza, burgers, french fries, donuts, cake, etc.; but it probably is not a good idea to eat too much of that stuff. Milkshakes have lots of calories and might be better..  (+ info)

WEIGHT GAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?


At the gym do few reps of high weight for the major muscle groups. Eat a high protein diet (it can be the protein shake stuff if you are not into meat) low in fat. Drink copious amounts of water to help the muscles repair themselves.  (+ info)

How much weight gain is normal during the first 4 months of pregnancy?

I am four months pregnant, and go back to the doctor on Feb.6. At my last doctors appointment he told me that I havent gained any weight so far, but my stomach was growing so the baby was gaining all the weight. I was advised to only gain about 20 pounds during my whole pregnancy because with my first pregnany I gained ALOT of weight and I was already a little over weight at the beginning of this pregnancy. I weighed myself at my mothers house and it looks like I have gained 3-5 pounds since January 9. Is this bad considering this is the only weight I have gained so far?!? How to I keep my weight from sky rocketing like it did with my first son?

normal weight gain during pregnancy is as follows

months 1-3 no gain or up to 4 lbs water retention
months 4-9 .8-1.2 lbs each week

total weight gain not to exceed 35 lbs

the thing I would recommend is keeping a food diary
you only need 300 extra calories a day from now till the end of your pregnancy
most of what you are eating should consist of whole grains, fruits and vegetables. you need small portions of protein (60 grams a day) and small amounts of fat.
you should cut out food that is highly processed (that's anything that comes in a box, bag, or can).
drink water instead of juice, soda, or milk (most people do not drink enough)

you are welcome to contact me if you would like free personalized help with your diet.

Becki jean:
According to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans published by the USDA, a pregnant woman needs about 2,300-2,700 calories a day.
the 1800-2000 calories you are recommending is dangerously low unless you ment only during the first trimester when your body requires no additional calories...  (+ info)

How to gain weight without increasing stomache fat?

I find that when I gain weight I get stomache fat.
Its not very big but its larger then the rest of my body.
I am naturally thin so I want to be able to gain weight without gaining any stomache fat.
How can I do this? I am 21 and l'm planning to jog regularly, lift weights and eat a balanced diet.

you just answered your own question, cardio, lift weights (muscle weighs more than fat) and eat right. You need to increase your carbs, but only eat complex carbs. You should also eat alot of fish. Take a multi-vitamin supplement and do not eat junk food. Eat at least 5 times per day, breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, and then dinner before 7pm.  (+ info)
