    I'm wanting to know how I can gain weight. At the moment I am 45Kg (5"4 height)
    I never put on any weight, apart from on my stomach! I want to know how much more I should be eating, and what foods would maximise weight gain. Also which exercises because at the moment all I ever do is sit-ups, reverse crunches and occasionally running for the bus. Ideally I want my arms and legs to be bigger.

    This is what I usually eat:

    Breakfast: 2 slices of toast OR 2 slices of toast with eggs and beans etc never meat.
    Snack: Chocolate OR a pastry OR crisps
    Lunch: Something like a 12inch chicken mayo baguette OR normal sandwich (cheese ploughman's; chicken wrap etc.)
    Snack: As above. When I get home I might have a banana or something until my dinner is ready.
    Dinner: Curry with rice etc. OR pasta (with vegetables and mince) etc just regular home-made meals OR some take-away food like a whole pizza. I think I have decent portions.

    I tend to stop eating about an hour before going to bed.
    Oh and drinks-wise in the day I will usually have 1 cup of tea, 1.5-2 litres of water, small bottle of juice but it varies.

    I don't know how many I use?
