Nathalie,

Has your doctor checked your thyroid function? How old are you?

Sounds like your metabolism is really great. Most people would kill for it! Of course, that doesn't make you feel any better, huh?

Metabolisms do tend to slow down as you age, tho. My sister was about your size up until she turned 30 and had her kids, and then her metabolism slowed down to what would be more normal and her weight has gone up. She's not heavy now, but she's not so skinny anymore either, and she's much more comfortable with how she looks.

I've heard some men say they eat a diet high in carbohydrates and protein when they are trying to gain weight, combining that with exercise and weight training to be sure the extra weight is muscle and not fat. Maybe that would help you too. And I know you said you're not very active, but you might be more active than you think. Check out this link on fidgeting....

Susan
