Remember, once you gain weight it's hard to lose it.
I don’t want too loose it tho. I just want to gain some more (not too much so I’m overweight) and then tone up

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
Oh I’ve not heard of this idea before! Sounds like it could actually work for me thanks for that! I might actually try this starting tomorrow

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'.
You’ve explained that so well thank you!!! Going to do this thanks so much

give it a week or so for some sort of results or maybe a bit more by it does add the pounds depending on how you eat. when you have all the meals make sure to have proper meals. filling ones- again don't eat more than you'd normally have in a meal. just eat thosenotmal meals more often consistently. obviously for best results don't stray from the diet.

tell me how it works out for you

Bit vague? Your advice is stupid and generic.
His advice is neither stupid nor generic. If someone wants to gain weight then they’ll have to eat in a small-moderate calorie surplus. He even suggested a number of calories which is more than what you did. You just said to eat more, so I fail to see how that is less generic?

Also, please point out which part of the advice is stupid. I’m failing to see it but I’m clearly not on the same level as you when it comes to nutrition. Educate me.

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
The most important thing is just to keep eating healthily. Yes, you *might* need to gain weight to be at a healthy weight, but it won't do much good if you only gain unhealthy fats, if that makes sense? A balanced diet is more important than anything else!
