    Try to eat more than you usually do.

    Try a big bowl of porridge in the morning and chicken for lunch, this has helped me to gain some weight.

    I was in the same boat bro - I had a bad case of the mumps a while back and lost a 17 pounds in 6 days due to a stupendously highly active metabolism, and its still the same today I'm still only 11 stone but I went right down to under 9.5 in the space of a week.

    What I eat everyday now is
    breakky - porridge/museli/nuts and seeds collection
    midmornin - apple/banana
    lunch - rice/rawveggie
    midafternoon - (blue, black, rasp)berries/orange/necterine/plum etc
    dinns - mostly fish but sometimes chicken too / brocholli, cauliflower, peas, carrots etc
    beforebed - some nuts and seeds

    and drink at least 2 litres of water throughout the day, have between 2-4 cups of lemon balm tea, and likewise for green tea, around 6-8 cups of tea a day - and treat myself to some apple juice or pomegranate juice too!

    Do this and you should gain wait! but eat PLENTY OF GOOD STUFF! Good luck!

    Thank you
    I already eat lots, but I dont drink that much water, though I eat soup almost twice a day.
    How much does drinking water affect the weight gain?

    What you're eating appears to be fine. Just eat more than your used too and be careful it doesn't metabolize into fats but instead muscle

    All the best

    Protein shakes work best when you use them straight after your workout and eat some fibers with them (high fiber crackers for example). I take my shake to the gym and drink it straight after lifting, then I do my cardio. Been doing that for four months now. I never had my bodyfat percentage measured but a month ago bought a tape measure to have some kind of idea about how I was doing. I lost about 4 inches on my waist in that last month and I weigh one kilo more than I did 4 months ago. Sweet! Losing fat, gaining muscle, feeling good.

    I dont want to lose fat, I hardly have ANY!
    I might consider a weight gain shake, it has some protein percentage,a protein only shake maybe in a few months.
    You gotta watch out for that shake drinking while doing exercise,you might get some digestion problems.
    Also, does no one know if drinking water is vital for weight gaining? if so, how much should I drink?

    Taking in water is always good, I try and drink about a gal a day but I donít think it has much affect on weight gain. You want to take in 2g of protein per lb of body weight. You do that and work out 3 times a week and you will see some gains

    Brushing your teeth with chocolate instead of toothpaste might help.
