Don't do it...: Look into the growing pattern of family members in the past first. If your growing pattern is similar to your family, please do not try to a sudden weight gain but maintain healthy lifestyle and avoid overindulgence and obsession. And you should be fine as long as you have enough energy and ability to handle your personal and occupational chores and tasks. Of course, if in doubt, see professional.
