Dear Unable To Gain Weight
Gaining weight is just as problematic as trying to lose it. Basically individuals who struggle to gain weight do not ingest sufficient energy for the high demands of their Basic metabolic rate and/or physical activity. I have written some articles on this subject. For basic information click on 'Diet' at the top of this page and then on 'Diet Basics' and 'Weight gaining' and read the articles. Basically you need to eat more food either by gradually increasing how much you eat at each meal, or by taking your Life Gain supplement IN ADDITION to your regular meals (not to replace meals), or by having more snacks between meals. If you use the Life Gain liquid meal supplement at the rate of 200 ml 3x a day, then you should gain 1 kg per week. Feedback from other Readers has indicated that they have successfully gained weight by using a meal supplement.
