Questions about weight gain and working out
Ok, this is my first port to this website, and so i will try my best to make my question short, but give all the information.
I am 21, female, 6', very slender, about 140 lbs, which is on the very lower end of the recommended weight for a medium build of that height, and I have an exceptionally high metabolism. Now, I have always been very skinny, and my questions is about weight gain. I am sick of being so small, but I don't understand how weight gain works. How do i gain weight, but not become fat? I work out gently now, anything vigorous and I feel like I am wasting away and loose weight instantly, which i can't really afford to do.
So, a friend recommended those energy/protein shakes that serious altheltes take that have 1500 calories per serving in them. He said I can get the formulas at places like GNC, and that if i do that, then i can work out more to keep muscle tone while gaining weight. So, how does this work? The areas of my body that I work out, do they not get fat and other areas do? Does the fat cover everything? Basically, how do I gain weight and still maintain the pretty body that I have worked for? I am trying to gain weight so that I will fit better into clothes, as it is very hard for tall tiny women to shop, as tall women are usually bigger than I am, also, it I wouldn't mind finally having enough fat to actually have boobs.
