Struggling to Gain. Any "gainers" here?

Monday, May 02, 2016

I seem to get some crude remarks about wanting to gain, but my struggle is just as real as those wanting to lose. I'm a small chick and always have been. My issue is that I already eat pretty healthy and my BMR is so high that I burn over 2000 calories being INACTIVE. I struggle to consume more calories than I burn, hence why I don't gain. Now that I've gotten more active, I'm actually losing weight! That's not the goal. I'm almost scared to be active if I haven't consumed 3000 calories that day. I really don't want to burn what might be a gain. Help!

    Thanks guys. That's the suggestion I keep receiving. I already consume high carbs. I put in my goals for my calorie tracker and it recommended 48% carbon, 26% fat, 26% protein. My carbs are usually 60% or higher, but protein 20% or below.

    Researching options and ask them what they would recommend to you then tell them thank you get they're card and you will get back with them. If you can afford it I would suggest starting out slowly then building up. Sometimes the protein powder can

    I'm sorry you've not been getting helpful support! We might be coming from opposite sides of the issue, (I have PCOS and my metabolism works against me) but our problem is the same, we have to work extra hard to get our body to be "normal" and healthy.

    You might need a higher than normal percentage of carbs? I figure if I have to eat a very small number of carbs to lose weight, that it might work in reverse for you!

    Just get the recommendations from them and if you can't afford they're prices you can get the equivalent to it at Walmart a lot less expensive then the nutrition centers prices. They want an arm and a leg for the products. Just say you are ....

    Twice because he was only 3 or 4 years old but you are an adult go to a nutrition center and tell them what you want to do and they can suggest a protein regiment to help you gain weight.I know there are powders out there that are tasty and effective
