How do I gain weight?!
Okay, I'm 5'7 and weigh under 8 stone....which is not dramatically underweight but I'd really love to be more curvy. I eat a hell of a lot, in fact people say I should be the size of an elephant by now, but nothing, I don't even gain a pound! When I was had toothache and could hardly eat anything for 2 days, I lost half a stone, so why when I eat loads do I not put it on as easily?! Honestly, I counted the calories of what I ate the other day and it came to 2700....and in fact I lost weight. Help! I've looked at similar questions on here and people suggest eating more and drinking booze. Both of which I don't think I could do more if I tried!*
*p.s I'm not an alcoholic!

I take it you've been to your Dr as things like thyroid malfunctions can cause this type of thing.
I have opposite prob cant lose weight in spite of eating very little-apparently I'm not kick starting my metabollism!
At least I know I'm not an alky - cos I've never seen a fat one!!
Try augmenting your diet with Complan - really does work wonders.
