Hi andrew.ace0. You are probably what is called a "hardgainer".

Check this out for a second: http://stronglifts.com/hardgainers-gain ... inny-guys/

You basically need to take it very seriously. Don't make any half-hearted effort. If you want to get bigger, you have to put in a lot of effort. (There are some genetic 'freaks' that lose fat quickly and get big quickly, called Mesomorhps. You are likely mostly a Ectomorph, as its called.)

Do you do weightlifting? Just doing cardio and basic exercise is not enough. You need to sign-up for a gym that has excellent weights (free weights are even better than machines).

You want to do especially Compound Movements (bench-press, etc.) These are movements that involve many muscles, not just one muscle (which is called an Isolation Movement).

Eat very healthy and enough (especially get enough protein). Also, do intense weight-lifting. These two together can make you bigger and stronger.

One last thing, great foods for getting bigger are: Chicken and low-fat Cottage Cheese. Both are full of protein, without much fat. Exactly what you need.

Hope this helps you a bit!

Calories and unsaturated fat. Calories, foremost. Find a weight gain supplement that you like (most pharmacies, department stores, and supplement stores have a vast array of choices.) They can be pricey but think of it as like buying medicine.

Drink lots of whole milk! If you can get fresh raw milk, even better. If you don't like milk, add chocolate syrup. Eggs, eggs, eggs. Scrambled, fried, boiled, whatever. They're protein packed. Whole grains; brown rice, breakfast cereal, whole wheat bread.

Red meat, if you're an omnivore. Iron and protein. With meat, fiber is essential- so fruit and veggies are a must. Or at least a fiber supplement.

Potatoes and sweet potatoes. Bakes, mashed, boiled, fried with olive oil, whatever.

When you work out/lift, you burn calories. Sit down and figure out how many calories your burning (tons of websites out there to learn how to calculate this- it's pretty simiple.) Take that number and add it to 2500. That's the *least* amount of calories you should be taking in daily.

Best of luck! Let us know how you're getting on! :)

Id ask if you calorie intake means you should be putting on weight, and you still arent, that something is not right in your body. Over active thyroid? Digestive issue, i.e. celiac? Under methylator? B12 deficiency?

Weights and protein are probably your best bet if you're looking for muscle mass. Lean cuts of meat, eggs, etc. and Low rep/high intensity weights.

If you want to gain the weight very quickly than you must use phentermine. Phentermine is the very beneficial for the health and also helpful to build the body muscles.

First of all I want to tell you that do not use any pills to gain you weight. Try to follow some natural way like weight gain diet plan and daily exercise which will help you to gain your weight. You can also take the help of some professional who will tell you the better ways to gain weight.

Hi,
I also have a very similar problem. I am 26, 5’8” and also weigh about 50kg.
I eat 3 decent meals a day, usually a LOT of carbs and cheese with a good amount of protean plus I snack pretty much constantly between meals.
Yet I have never in my life weighed more than 52kg. I have to constantly force myself to eat even when not hungry just to maintain my weight. When I separated from my wife about a year ago I stopped eating so much and dropped down to 42kg in just 2 weeks! It’s taken all this time just to get back to here.
I have tried for years to get to a decent weight, including going to the gym but all that changed was my bank balance, although I was probably a lot healthier and fitter for it.
I would love to know if there is something I am missing? Really hate it when people say “just eat more”! It’s not that simple. I do eat, quite a lot too but nothing much seems to work.
