Gaining weight: Gaining weight is not easy for the super skinny! To gain one pound per week, add 500calories extra per day. Take these calories in as protein and carbs. I don't recommend junk food. You can do protein bars (about 250-300cal) two extra per day on top of your regular food. Also try protein smoothies with 2% greek yogurt, protein powder, fruit and nut butters. ...Read more

Skinny but eat a lot: Recommend you get an app called Loseit and track your calorie intake and exercise.

Rethink diagnosis: If you're losing a lot of weight, you should reconsider your diagnosis.

Inflammatory bowel disease, malabsorbtion syndromes, depression and other problems can occur regardless of whether or not you have ibs. Any of these could cause weight loss. ...Read more

Very possibly: ....but I would think the bigger problem might be water intake, though that surprises me. Your question suggests you are knowledgable about healthy eating and I would guess that you are pretty good about drinking water. In any event, especially with this few calories you need 8-12 glasses a day. Make sure you are getting at least 1000 ca/day; fewer is unsafe. Best wishes:) ...Read more

Assuming the food I eat is high in total fat but very low in saturated fat & I manage to burn all calories I eat. Is high fat food OK in this scenario?

Unknown: I don't think we really know the answer to this excellent question but my impression is that, if you're using all the calories you eat, the fat content is not harmful. I base this on lipid profile results of Dr. Adkins (of the Adkins' diet) who eat a low carb, high fat diet, lose weight, and have no demonstrable harm. Some fats (monounsaturated) in moderation, appear to actually be beneficial. ...Read more

Nuts may be best bet: Don't know whether you are looking for snack or regular foods. Of course meat would be the obvious answer, but nuts contain very good fats as well as significant protein. Almonds and walnuts are probably best. So do cheeses. Of course they have calories, but you do need fats and calories at your age to continue to develop normally. ...Read more
