Apparently that puts my BMI at around 18.0 and anything under 18.5 is underweight. I eat quite a bit but I can't seem to put any weight on! Actually I've been losing weight still. So besides becoming a couch potato and constantly eating, does anyone know some good, healthy ways to put some weight on?
Oh and I've been drinking Ensure occasionally but apparently I'm kinda lactose intolerant so I can't drink too much of it. =/

How old are you? Metabolism slows down as you get older. You could start drinking lots of sugary drinks. When I cut out soda, I drop 20 pounds in 3 days.

I'm only 17. That would probably help. I've been trying to drink lots of fruit juice lately.

I drink ensure protein shakes they really helped me! I'm sorry they don't work for you. I have your same problem though, I cannot gain weight easy either.

When my son was in high school, for one week he could eat only potatoes, boiled, mashed or fried. No added toppings. Boy, did we go thro potatoes. He lost 5 lbs. When I was trying to gain the doc said high carbohydrate, breads, potatoes, pastas, etc. A week later I'd lost 2,1/2 lbs. It was when I started lifting weights, 5lb wts that I started putting on muscle and then I started to gain. The same exercises can help a person change shape since muscle is heavier than fat.

Do they really help you gain weight? How many pounds were you able to put on in a month of drinking them? What's the taste like... lol.

I didn't track my weight but I went from 102 to 114 over the summer. They taste really good. Like really thick chocolate milk but one time I got dark chocolate by mistake and it tasted horrible!

*double post* I was just drinking an ensure and OP, if you are lactose intolerent, then ensure shouldn't give you a problem. I saw in bold print on the back of the bottle "GLUTEN FREE; SUITABLE FOR LACTOSE INTOLERANCE" and it made me think of this thread ha :p

I'll second the Lactaid pills and Lactaid milk or lactose free milk. My mom is extremely lactose intolerant and those work wonders for her.

I also have a very high metabolism and have to watch that I eat enough. I know that there are people that would like to be my size, but they also don't realize that it comes with it's own set of annoyances and criticisms.
Example: I am always cold! I hate the cold. I need to move to the tropics.
And who thinks it's a good thing to be called skinny or thin? You call one of my animals skinny or thin and I'll be upset, let alone calling me it. End rant. Lol.

And back on topic, I would suggest pastas or breads as well as eggs. That's what seems to do it for me. Good luck!
