The : The ideal weight gain rate for a woman 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 you gain the weight. A healthy diet and exercise is crucial for the development of lean muscle mass as opposed to just packing on fat. Junk food without exercise is not a good way to gain weight. Eating high calorie, but protein and nutrient rich foods such as nut butters, cheese, avocados and nuts is a good way to start. You should talk to your doctor or a dietician/ nutritionist about a healthy diet and exercise plan to gain weight in the best way possible. ...Read more

When shopping for fruits, buy small ones no bigger than a tennis ball, because fruits have sugar. Drinks without calories include water and green tea. A calorie is a calorie, but surely avoid sugar & simple starch calories. ...Read more
