What foods should someone eat to gain weight?

High Protein complex: Carbs and healthy fat (fish and plant based fat) is what I would recommend. If you want to put on "healthy" weight, you need to build more muscle.

I suggest getting your metabolic rate checked and based on that, go on a high calorie zone type diet which is healthy and high protein. ...Read more

How much can weight fluctuate in a day depending on what you've had to eat/drink? A relative claims some foods make her gain 3 lbs "overnight."

How much can weight fluctuate in a day depending on what you've had to eat/drink? A relative claims some foods make her gain 3 lbs "overnight."

It's certainly: Possible to gain "3 pounds overnight" if someone eats very salty food and/or has a problem with fluid retention. This is water weight, not body mass. I've seen patients with heart failure who have gained up to 10 pounds of edema fluid in 24 hours after a dietary indiscretion. Rather than being skeptical of your relative, I encourage you to support her in efforts to eat healthfully. Dr. Anne ...Read more

I'm a thin person, and I eat a normal amount of food. I think my metabolism is in overdrive. Even though I exercise, I can't seem to gain weight.

How do you feel?: Talk about 'metabolism' is mostly subscientific. Are you trying to gain muscle or fat? To gain muscle, you need to do resistance training, supplementing with creatine will probably help, and your genetics determines how fast and how much you gain. You have no reason to want to gain fat. Your body will adjust to your best weight as you pursue the sports you enjoy. Most women prefer a slender man. ...Read more

Can over night food cause a person to gain weight than if cooked and eaten then or does putting some in the fridge to eat another day is bad for you?

NO: Night food is not different at night or daytime. The problem is how much you eat. If you eat the right amount at a regular meal time and then snack with regular food but at late night you will gain weight. Eat a balanced diet that is calorie controlled mixed with exercise. You will then either lose weight or maintain. Best wishes. ...Read more

I gain weight easily. If I eat a lot of (fast food) for a week, I would see a huge difference in my weight. I have friends who eat so much but they r ok?

Body composition: Body composition (muscle and fat) differs from person to person as does the amount of calories a person burns. Fast food is very high in calories and fat and im not suprised you would gain weight. Don't compare yourself to others, eat healthy and listen to your own body. If you don't want fast weight gain, don't eat fast foods. Choose healthier alternatives, prepare your own foods. ...Read more

Up protein, carbs, n maintain fat content (don't lower or raise it) exercise should be focused on beginner weight training, and a trainer is highly recommended to avoid injury.

...With any food!: Any food that has calories, if over-consumed, can result in weight gain--regardless if a carbohydrate, protein, fat, gluten-free, fat-free, sugar-free, high fiber, etc. Don't be fooled with testimonial advice about one fad diet/exclusion or another. A consistent healthy meal plan balanced in all food groups, eaten in moderation, combined with exercise, & low in alcohol is the key you're seeking! ...Read more
