I am 5'6 and 110 pounds, 18 year old female. I am sick of being so scrony and would like to gain weight. How? Or how many calories each day?

I am 5'6 and 110 pounds, 18 year old female. I am sick of being so scrony and would like to gain weight. How? Or how many calories each day?

DOCTOR FIRST: Make sure you don't have any medical conditions like hyperthyroidism that keep you "scrawny". If that has been done, you are looking at needing 2500-3000 calories per day for regular routine activity/lifestyle, more if you exercise a lot. Try to increase the calories with healthy things like nuts, proteins, dairy products. Put cheese sauce on your veggies, have a handful of almonds for a snack! ...Read more

What is the average weight of a 18 year old?

Depends: The average is not the best way to look at the proper weight, as the health weight for an 18 year old depends on height and sex, and to some degree muscle mass, so a 5'3 18 year old gymnast and a 6'3 18 year old tight end on the football team and a 5' 7 18 year old chess player all would have different healthy weights. I am not sure an average is meaningful. ...Read more

Diet and muscle mass: To gain weight you have to eat more calories than burned. Do this in a healthy way though. Don't choose junk or fast food. Keep a well balanced diet and make sure you are getting all the nutrients you need. Weight lifting and other muscle building exercises can help you increase your body mass. Muscle size is partly genetic. Likewise, some people are naturally thin, based on their genetics. ...Read more
