Hi, wondering if anyone can offer some advice, I'm a 17 year old male and weigh about 50kg, im roughly 170cm and want to gain weight.
I eat quite alot considering my size but i think ive been around the same weight for longer than i can remember, well over a year. I've been told i can't gain weight due to a high metabolism rate or something, i don't do much exercise and eat pretty much anything - any advice welcome :)

Do what i do: have a protein rich diet and go to the gym. I used to look like a walking skeleton and now i... still look like a walking skeleton only with a little flesh :D

Hey Bane, im male as 17 too, i weigh 55kg, but im like 6ft tall.
I've tried high protein diets for a few months, gave them a try but they never worked at all. I have a fast metabolism, but i don't nescerally wanna fill out with fat, i don't mind if its muscle i just want to fill out in general... if theres someone out there who could help me, some advice on what i should eat for breakfast lunch and dinner perhaps, i would be highly grateful.
Many Thanks.

Did you go to the gym while taking that high-protein diet? That's kind of the main idea... try this: High protein diet, 3000-4000 kcal a day. Go to the gym at list 3 times a week and work out for minimum 2 hours. If after 6 months you don't have visible results, i am taking up math :D

spammy, i dont know how heavy weights your suppose to be lifting but i know your meant to start light and build up gradually. Something i just started to try might help you, when doing your weights, count for two on your lift but count to four as you lower. I've read in a magazine that doing that for four weeks should show significant muscle gain, like i said i've only just started it so i can't tell you if it works myself.

I also dug up a diet that should help us skinny guys put on weight.
Breakfast
A big bowl of cereal with toast

Mid morning snack
Banana with orange juice

Lunch
Large chicken baguette followed by a Mars bar

Mid afternoon snack
Fruit scone, with a portion of fruit.

Dinner
Big portion of chilli with a large portion of rice

Havent tried that yet but intend to start tomorrow :D hope it helps.

You won't gain any weight at all with this diet if you already are skinny with a high metabolism. You would probably lose more. Check at your local GNC or nutrition store for some weight-gain supplements. There are some good, healthy ones out there lurking around.

You should somewhere between 2000-3000 Kcal(or food calories, it is the same thing) a day if you want to mantain your figure. Some books say 2000, others 3000, don't ask me why. If you want to pun on weight you should eat at least 3000 kcal/day because much GTP is required for protein synthesis if you want to biuld up muscle mass. Here two, some books say 3000, some say 4000. Also, the diet should be rich in proteins as you need all the aminos you can get. But don't neglect vitamins, cause with this increase in anabolism your body will need extra.
it is recommended that(if you want to build up muscle mass and have a healthy body) you eat 5(YES, five!!) meals a day. 3 main meals and 2 snacks
Now, i am not a nutritionist so i can not tell you exactly what you should be eating at every meal. Milk, cheese, chicken, turkey and soia are just some of the things you should be eating. The main idea is to have a balanced diet. It would be ideal to evoid fried food, drinks like Pepsi or Coca-cola and alcohol. Smoking is probably the worst thing you could do if you are in such a situation. If you smoke, quit now!
About going to the gym, again i am not a personal trainer. But i have been going to the gym for 2 years on and off now and there are a few things i picked up. First of all, if you want to lose weight you should be doing a lot of exercises with few weights. If you want to pun on muscle mass you should use as much weight as you can. You don't need to sweat, you need to work your muscles to the full. Also, it is highly recommended that you go to a gym where a trainer can teach exactly how and what you should be lifting. You don't to develop incorrectly now, do you?
There are many things contribuing to a healthy figure, from getting enough sleep to having a healthy sex life(no, i am not joking). From what i have been reading the training is only 30% of this sport called body building.
Hope this helps. I look forward to answering any questions i know the answers to :wink:
Regards,
Andrew

I have only recently taken up the whole "exercising vigorously" hobby. I have learned a lot of information about weight-training so far. I started out at 232 lbs. and am 6'0'' tall. I intend to lose some weight but I would like to put on more muscle as well. Therefore, I am supplementing my lunches with a protein shake and I have simply cut back on my other meals. To keep from getting hungry throughout the day and to keep my metabolism active constantly I simply eat 6 small meals throughout the entire day. I do weight-training every other day and I do cardio every day. On the days between my weight-training I do what I call "gravity exercises" lol. These are simply the push-ups, sit-ups, burpees, etc. that we are all familiar with. After 5 weeks I have lost 12 lbs. and I have gained some muscle tone as well. It's a slow process but it's well worth it.

Oh yeah... protein supplements and vitamins are good to take, but do not exagerate. If you exagerate with proteins you will put on what is called "forced muscle mass", and your skin will start to fall after you stop going to the gym. Just look how Schwartzenegger(probably spelled wrong) looks now
