Increase calories : Building muscle while maintaing weight begins with increasing calories and hydration. You may want to think about adding protein supplements to your daily diet when you work out.

And keep exercising of course. There's no magic bullet. ...Read more
16 years old (130lb). Gain/lose weight really easily. Can only maintain weight if i eat <800 cals. I've gained 20lb in a month before. Normal?

By limiting your self to few calories you will likely feel deprived which can lead to binging. Please tell your parents what is going on so you can get help from your pediatrician. ...Read more
