I am 25 yrs old. I've always been thin...no one in my family is big. (height and weight removed, can be triggering for some) I know I need to gain weight and I WANT too!! I eat typically 3 meals a day. Some days I think less than others. It is hard for me to find clothes sometimes....I'm really upset b/c I KNOW I need to gain about 15lbs?? For my height? Does this sound like an eating disorder? Can anyone help me out? How many calories do I need to consume in order to gain weight? Thanks !!

depends on how many calories u r having at the moment and how many u burn off in a day, reccomended amount is around 2000. u might hav a fast metabolism or it could be just how ur family body type is. mayb ask ur family if they hav similar concerns

Thanks.......
I can prob guess at how many calories I consume in a day. It can be different. I'd say anywhere from 1400-2000. I currently don't have a job so I cant be burning too many off...other than when I clean house maybe?
