Check online resourc: Just as in weight loss, don't set up specific goal for weight gain. Instead, set goal to improve health & function, regardless of weight. Check out some of these websites: http://www.womenshealthmag.com/, www.shape.com & www.oxygenmag.com. Also consider http://www.cdc.gov/women/, http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/womenshealth.html, http://www.webmd.com/women/ & http://goo.gl/hLA1wH (Mayo Clinic).
