I want to gain weight. I know everyone says it will come in time but I want to gain weight so bad. I am 5 foot tall and I weigh 90 pounds. Around my thighs it measures 17 inches and thats the fattest part around my thighs. Right above my knee it is 12 and a half inches. Thats discusting to me and I need help. I would like any advice I can be given. Thanks!
well, I just measured mine and I think you are fine! I'm 5'2" and weigh 109. I jog 2 miles 4 times a week and work out at the gym 3 days a week for 40 minutes. Just above my knee I am 12-3/4" and the fattest part of my thigh is 17-1/2"....and I;m trying to thin the inside of my thigh a little. Otherwise, my legs are muscular looking for someone as small as I am. Oh, and I am 59 years old and wear a size 4.
heheh yah, dont just eat like fatty deep fried foods all the time (but i certainly can have em in moderation), make shure u get a lot of protein, carbs, calcium, ect. what i do it i try to get all the recommended values of each food group per day. so i try to get at least 9 servings of bread, or 2 - 3 servings of protien. even if im not hungry! lol snack every 2 hours or so, eat all ur meals, drink lots of milk!
If I were trying to gain weight, and Godfor bid it would be so easy(lol), I would eat stuff like
Baked potatoes, pasta (not those two in overabundance), nuts, peanut butter, salads with olive oils, more fish oils and flax.
There are TONS of "good fats" that contain the monosaturated kind that are very high in fat, and good for health. I would add more of them into your diet.
