The : The ideal weight gain rate for a teen girl trying to do it healthily is a 1/2 lb to 2lb/ week which is between 2 lbs to 8 lbs a month. What is most important is how she gains the weight.

Eating high calorie, but protein and nutrient rich foods such as nut butters, cheese, avocados and nuts is a good way to start. She should talk to her doctor about a healthy diet and exercise plan to gain weight in the best way possible. ...Read more
