Gaining weight as a skinny person is not easy. It is frustrating to eat a lot but still not gain weight.
One thing that skinny people do not know is that they have a fast metabolism which makes it hard for them to gain weight.
A fast metabolism means that your body burns all the calories you eat. As a skinny person trying to gain weight, you have to eat a lot more than your metabolism can handle.
Naturally, creating a caloric surplus in your body will make you gain weight.
Probably you are skinny due to lack of knowledge of what it takes to gain weight. Below are top five tips that will help you gain weight:
5. Eat more food
The leading trick to gain weight is to consume more calories than your body can burn. The mistake that most people do is to go by their feelings.
Your metabolism could be much faster than you think. You need to know how much calories your body needs for you to gain weight.
Keep track of everything you eat to know how much calories you consume every day. You might overestimate your calorie intake if you go with your feelings.
In the first week, you will have difficulties eating all the required calories for you to gain weight. After maybe two weeks, your stomach will stretch and start getting hungry more often.
4. Track your progress
Weigh yourself every week to check how you are progressing. Malnourished people will gain weight quickly in the first week due to increased bowel content and weight from the extra water as well.
Continue eating the same if you gain weight; if you do not gain weight, you will have to keep adding more calories to your daily intake every week until you gain weight.
You should note that the food that makes you gain the first 10kg will not make you gain the next 10kg.
A skinny person with less muscle mass burns fewer calories than one with a bigger muscle mass.
Thus, a person with no muscles will require fewer calories to gain weight as opposed to a more masculine person.
3. Eat more protein
Protein is necessary for muscle building and recovery. The following are the best protein sources for gaining weight: whole eggs, chicken breast, tuna, cheese, and steaks.
For you to build your body muscles, you will require at least 1g of proteins per 1lb of body-weight per day.
However, you should have in mind that some people will not gain weight or muscles without gaining fat as well.
2. Eat more meals
You have been eating little food for years. Thus your stomach is small.
If you are required to take at least 1500 calories a day for you to gain weight, it will be easier if you take 300 calories in 5 meals than having 500 calories in 3 meals.
Create yourself a bigger eating window. With eight sleeping hours, you are left with 16 hours to eat. Make a schedule of how you will have the five meals in those 16 hours.
Lifting weights is good for people trying to gain weight since it triggers the body to build muscle mass.
If you do not train, the excess calories that do not burn will be stored as fat around your waistline. Your goal is to be muscular and not chubby.
Therefore you will need to train. Remember, the more you train, the more calories you will burn and therefore the more calories you will require creating a caloric surplus.

I eat so much a day to the point where it is disgusting but I don’t even gain 0.01 pounds. I fucking despise fast metabolism. On average I eat about 244000 calories a day but I can never ever get any fat. I never move cause if I do I might lose weight. Someone pls help I’m only 2.6 pounds
To all of the people who say they eat a lot of food but are still skinny, just change your diet so that you eat more protein and eat heavier foods. Chicken and peanut butter are great for gaining weight. I'm INCREDIBLY underweight for a 14 year old of my height (im 5'5" but I'm not going to share my weight because I'm even embarresed to tell people on the internet) also, try to gain muscle. You don't necessarily have to do cardio, but doing weight training and other strength training can help you gain muscle weight and make you more hungry.
this video is a summation of misconceptions.. peeople really need to start explaining using the actual biochemistry of the process instead of relying on abstract idea like metabolism they dont even understand. btw skinny people dont have faster metabolism. they have slower if anything
I'm 5'2 or a bit taller (can't tell anymore, last time I checked it was 5'2, but I could be 5'3-4).
I weigh 96.2 last time I checked. My whole family tells me to quit thinking about my weight because I'll gain some when I get older, but I still worry. I look somewhat small, and for my short stature and weight, I'm constantly referred to as the tiny one. I dislike being the one people look to as a possible small cute girlfriend.
For what ever reason being submissive bothers me. I can't stand being the object of affection, and much prefer making the first moves. But I find that hard to do with guys, and when it comes to girls, very dominant women like to approach me constantly. It's not that I hate dominance, but I loathe being someone who people trivialize.
What can I do, do you think, to be different?
ROWdY BAkuGou jEffErSon I’m 5”2 an I weight 85p.
This is my daily life:
Go to school
People look at me cause I’m hella skinny
Some even call me a skeleton or alien or abnormal
It feels like I don’t like my body I want to gain. I eat a ton of nuts protein and snacks between meals.
First of all if you really want gain weight you have to buy a really expensive food but my advice is to get some work out and eat only healthy food like salad with some chicken and nuts only protein if you tried fast food or something unhealthy you'll missed up all trust me
This is all speaking as if I don’t eat anything but I eat quite a lot and I’m still too skinny, I tried doing all my schools after school sports to try and gain weight but it didn’t so I now only do running and swimming
I was 42 kgs till the age of 22 but now i am 53kgs ,with my own experiments and nutrition guidance i became healthy person.It really helped in boosting my confidence.For any enquiry mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I purposefully lost some weight, i dont know why, and i regreted it but I'm afraid to start eating normally again because i heard somewhere that if you're thin and start gaining weight again it will go on your stomach and upper body... can someone please tell me if that's true?
For all you skinny guys here
I was skinny too 1and a half year ago I was 45kg that time I'm 65 kg now , I checked my daily calories need and I ate 300 to 500 more calories than my body need to maintain my weight , trust me this will work just stick with it I did and Im atleast fit now , the mistakes I did...

Then after doing that you can check how much calories you need to maintain your weight or how much calories you need to add to gain weight , ( don't forget to workout if your really doing this ) trust me Bruh itll work and eat clean don't eat crap that's just gonna make you fat
