I wouldn't try: I don't know for sure, but i don't think you'd be able to gain that much weight that quickly in a healthy way. It is often not easy for thin people to gain weight, so 40 pounds in such a short time isn't likely feasible unless you pack on unhealthy dense portions of fat and carb calories like fast foods. Better to work on increasing healthy calories at maybe half that pace. Do weight work, too. ...Read more

I was diagnosed with PCOS and I'm gaining weight uncontrollably. I have gained 40 pounds in 6 months. I am somewhat active and eat healthy.
Check labs: Pts with pcos often have issues with insulin resistance where the cells in the body become resistant to insulin causing an increase in insulin levels and blood glucose levels.

Please see doctor!: Please -- you need to see your doctor with these symptoms. You sound very depressed, and there could be other reasons for your weight loss as well.

Depends: If you keep ur regular meals stable, could use 3-6/day to add protein calories (better be working out or will just convert to fat). Likely much easier & cheaper overall to use powder protein (usually whey best), and make shakes or fortify other usual drinks w/protein ~20-60grams/day, depending on ur weight now. (don't over do it-->kidney risk & fat conversion risk). ...Read more
In the last 3 months I have lost 30 pounds (133), I weighed myself today and i gained 40 (162). i am a female that is 23 and exercises daily, Why?
Something seems amis: While I trust your weight may fluctuate a bit, it seems like you are reporting very large fluctuations. Did you lose 30 lbs intentionally, which is possible? And how fast did you gain the 40 back? You wouldn't be able to gain 40 lbs of mass without it really only being fluid retention in any short period of time. We'd need more clarification to better guide you. ...Read more
