Hi, I believe this is a question which must be answered by your Nutrilogist.

I am not a Doctor/Nutrologist--- nor pretend to be one.. I am just a caring individual.

My personal point of view:

There are many, but before..what helps with the loss of weight is excersice if you are able to, hypocaloric diets ( high on protein , low on carbs, with salads) you can eat carbs at breakfast, and not too much at lunch time, and try to eat non-refined carbs... they are a lot more healthier than the refined ons. Snacks... bannanas besides every one ones about the potassium etc, this frui that containt dopamines and other fruits( apples) . These are snacks ( healthy to keep you going)... ALWAYS EAT HEART HEALTHY FOODS... CONSULT YOUR DOCTOR.

To lose the weight there are 3 factors excersice, diet (and a natural supplement) and aereboics. You must sarifice, have the will power and discipline.

I recommend you take a supplement that is healthy.

Good morning Maso! I think the question was about how to gain weight. Oops!

I apologise, all the information listed above is for loss weight, I made a mistake and I do not know how. I thought you meant weight loss, the reason being ( not justifying myself) almost every one wants to lose weight. It is my fault..and take full responsability for my actions.

Once again I am truly sorry..I make mistakes like all other human beings, I hope you can understand that, no harm was intended at all, as I said I was trying to help and sorry for wasting your time.

Thank you.

Hi Wepia, Wow do I wish I had your problem! Anyhow, you still have to eat nutrional foods but they have drinks like ensure that have 350 calories and if you add about three of those to your diet, you should be able to gain about 2 lbs. a week. Do not forget you still have to excercise ( muscle weighs more than fat) Eat fruit and fiber, but add some high calorie foods like pasta,peanut butter,protien shakes (you can through a little ice cream in those too), all the stuff for weight gain is in the same aisle at the grocery store as weight loss things. Read labels, you can gain weight if you add high protien, high carb ( but healthy) to your regular diet. Good Luck. Fall Queen

Wow, can I relate to this question,
After many years of always being too thin, I am using Boost four times a days, and I also add Benecalorie to it, as one container of Benecalorie has 370 calories, when added to the boost you get a ton of calories I use this with my three main meals a day, and one before bedtime. I usually weighed about 87 -90 lbs, I could eat everything in site, and not gain an ounce, with this Boost and Benecalorie, I have maintained between 115-122 and I am five feet three and one half inches tall.
I talked to a nutritionist at my doctors office who usually deals with people trying to lose weight so needless to say I was her first challenge at trying help someone gain the weight. LOL>>

Hi wepia, I googled meds that make you gain weight, and I found out that Remeron, Zyprexa and Seroquel can cause one to gain weight. These meds are called A-typical anti-psychotic drugs.These meds are used for other purposes than just psychosis. And I believe all of them are on the "bad drug" list.
Any med has side effects, but that is just this girls opinion.
I think the answer is see a nutritionalist, as some wise person (forget who) said already.
Wishing you only the best. sweetlemon
