Re: cheap fats for a skinny skinny person

hollysargis,

I think (dry) beans, lentils and split peas are among the lowest for GI and price. So now that you know, there's no excuse for not including a LOT of beans, lentils or split peas in your daily meals. (Note: I don't mean canned beans etc..) It's okay to combine the above items with whole grain rice, whole grain pasta, barley etc. because it's the overall GI for the meal that counts. And these starches are inexpensive too.

Here's where the fat comes in: You make a soup (not canned soup) with the above ingredients plus vegetables. In other words, vegetable soup. Then after the soup is in your dish, you sprinkle in 1/4 cup of dry roasted peanuts.

If soup is too much trouble, you can make a salad with the same ingredients.

Extra virgin olive oil can also be used. Buy it when it's on sale.

The question is: Where will the fat accumulate on your body? You may be disapointed if it goes to all the wrong places, like your stomach.

Re: cheap fats for a skinny skinny person

soups are a great idea! i love beans and whole grain rice actually. i need to be more patient though and start buying the dry kind..is my problem.

fat goes to my love handles i'm a girl 5'8 and 109 lbs. ive started doing a stair stepper 30 min 3x a week so i'm worried i'll lose weight but i also want to improve my heart and just have more energy.

my whole life ive been skinny so i just eat whatever i want but i still don't gain weight+i feel tired all the time. recently i gave up caffeine, that was a huge step

Re: cheap fats for a skinny skinny person

Looks like you are very underweight, which considered unhealthy.

You may want to incorporate some muscle building exercises so that if you gain weight, you will gain some muscle weight instead of all fat weight. Having too little muscle is also unhealthy. Muscle building exercises include pushups, pullups, dips, squats, etc..

Re: cheap fats for a skinny skinny person

would pilates fall under muscle building or are they too easy?
