I am a 20 year old female. I am about 5'6" and my weight fluctuates between 110 and 115. I was between 120 and 125, but after discontinuing my birth control I dropped ten pounds. My BMI is only 18.1 (0.4 points under the healthy minimum)
I eat 2-3 times a day. My appetite has been dissipating. What foods should I eat so that I can get up to 130 (at least)?
I've read about drinking olive oil to account for much of the calories. I used the Calorie Calculator and Nutrition Guide on nutrition.about.com. It suggested for me to eat between 2100 and 2500 calories a day to gain the weight I want, depending on how much I exercise.
Such a high number seems daunting. Any helpful advice would be much appreciated.
Hi, a little late i know! but if theres anyone else who has the same problem, its not how much you eat its wether you are providing your body with the right nutritional needs it requires. I went through the same problem a couple of years ago. i have wrote a little article about it check it out healthyweightgaintips.blogspot.co.uk
