No, I just don't have time sitting behind a screen, waiting for low lives like you to reply. Anyway, you've already proved that your opinions are dim-witted and that you're a confused lad, must be embarrassing carrying your delusional brain haha..
Well, that's a lie. Why respond to me now? Idiot.

Of course, mate. I'm the confused one. If that's what helps you sleep at night, then so be it lol.

Considering that your mum is a "solicitor" (supposedly) then surely you'd base your opinion of me off of facts, not waffle you've invented?

I’m 4’11 and 7 stone and everyone always goes on about how skinny I am so I’d like to put weight on. Cause I’d love to start running again but I noticed my bum/boobs go first which makes me look even more skinner. Please help guys!
Remember, once you gain weight it's hard to lose it.

Lol I'm 43kg and 5'5 and I get teased a lot for how thin i am. You probs just have a fast metabolism like me so dw, I've tried putting on weight before and it just didnt work
Totally agree. I’ve got a friend she’s had 2 children and she eats anything she likes. She’s a lot skinner than me. I’ve never seen her put on weight except for her cheeks.

Lol your friend is like me (minus the children as I'm 16 lol) in the sense that I can eat whatever and I'm as still rlly thin, it's just because I've got a rlly fast metabolism

So I have a huge problem gaining weight because of genetics and all that so what has worked for me is eating normal meal portions at least ever 3 hours from when I wake up. snacking is optional but I find snacking doesnt necessarily lead to healthy weight. I also don't drink coke, I stick to diet if I have it and same goes for ant other fizzy drinks. But I still stick with water mostly. it doesn't work the quickest but as long as your meals are the same portions as before and your eating those meals within the 3 hours daily you should see a weight increase

Okay, so people who have no clue about nutrition or personal training (most people on Studentroom) would not be giving you any sensible advice. Gaining weight is as hard as losing weight and only professionals or those who have been through it would properly understand this. I would honestly suggest that you take protein supplements and work out which would motivate you to eat more and help you achieve a better appetite. Start with your normal plate and gradually add some more to it each day. Do not force yourself to eat a lot because otherwise, you'll end up feeling sick which is normal considering your stomach ain't used to getting more food in. Make sure it's gradual, exercise and go slow with it all.
Yeah I thought that but I knew some people would be able to help on here. I honestly eat so much now it’s helped very slightly but honestly not much at all...

Bit vague. Adding "more" isn't helpful if they'll end up gaining fat. What is better advice (and what I recommend) is to work out your TDEE and eat 200-400 calories above that figure. Any more, and you'll risk gaining too much fat, which isn't the point of a 'bulk' (completely depends on your own goals though).
Sorry could u give me a quick explanation of what a TDEE is? I’d just like to gain more weight so I have more to work with like I can tone more (every time I’ve tried to tone up I loose loads more weight) and I’d like to be able to go on runs and not end up looking even skinner ect. I’d love to be able to grow my bum without loosing fat other places. I hope that makes sense!

Yeah sure 🙂. A TDEE is your 'Total Daily Energy Expenditure'. Once you input your information (based on your stats) you'll get a figure called your 'maintenance'. Your maintenance calories are the calories you need to consume to maintain your weight. For example, let's say your TDEE was 2700. If you wanted to 'bulk' you'd eat between 2900 to 3000 calories for a safe and healthy weight gain. If you wanted to lose weight you'd eat 500 calories less than that figure.

Careful here (the bold highlighted point). You, unfortunately, don't determine where you lose weight. You can't "grow [your] bum without [losing] fat [in] other places". Either you gain muscle or you don't. I don't mean to come across harsh here, I'm just being honest so you won't get mislead 🙂.

Use this calculator to determine your TDEE: https://tdeecalculator.net

However, keep in mind that no calculators are accurate. You'll only find out what works for you through 'trial and error'.

What is this?
Eating more kcals than you burn. Search up 'tdee calculator' to estimate how many kcals you burn a day and the basis is you have to eat more than that. Do you want to gain mainly muscle or fat?

TDEE is total daily energy expenditure.

I'm no professional, but I'd recommend eating slightly larger portions (adding an extra spoonful of potatoes, or having another slice of meat etc) and look to healthy snacks that are good for energy and sometimes high in calories, e.g. nuts. Don't start binge-eating, or going through lots of unhealthy calorific foods. Keep your nutrition/food types in a good balance. And, as I believe someone else mentioned, consult with a GP or nutritionist if you can, or if any concerns crop up. Good luck and be careful of yourself!
thank you this is very helpful! I went through a phase where I ate really fatty/junk foods and it didn’t work so I tried eating like Loads healthy fats and it didn’t work either. But I’ll definitely try adding more meat potato’s ect that might work. I’ll try have bigger meal portions and maybe less fatty snacks

Eat lots of carb and fatty foods. High protein food adds more muscles but carbs and fat are packed with calories. Fried foods are high in fat. Opt for fried food than oven baked food.

Foods to gain weight include fried chips, chicken/fish in batter, full cream yoghurts and ice cream, full cream milk, evaporated and condensed milk, cheese, white rice, white bread, brioche bread, digestive biscuits and shortbread biscuits, bakeries such as croissants, donuts, milk chocolate smoothies and shakes, full cream rice puddings, sponge cake with jam and cream fillings. Try these for a week and you will add a ton of weight. As you eat these, have a double portion during each meal, and eat the snacks like donuts and cream sponges in between meals.

Good luck.😊
Thank u so much!!! This is so in depth I really appreciate the examples and stuff thank ux
