Nuts, cheese,milk, bananas and avocados are all healthy ways to gain weight. Nuts in particular are great cos they're VERY calorific and you don't feel like you're eating too much. Adding cheese to your meals is also great way to gain and there are very few meals which don't go with cheese (none in my opinion.) Eating every 3 hours is very good for you. If you can't manage big meals, try to eat something healthy with carbs, protein and fats at least every couple of hours. Good luck. X

The only way to gain weight is to take in more calories than your body requires. IF you rely solly on weight traiing to gain weight, it is gonna take a lot of time. Even if you reply on weight training, protein just aids in muscle recovery. It is the combination of protein with carbs that actually add size to them. That is why any weight training pprogram advocates that within 3 hrs of a workout you need to take a good meal that has both protein and carbs. For your other meals you can take protein and lesser carbs but the 3hrs timeframe after your workout is most important if you wanna put on muscle mass. Try to incorporate more carbs in your diet and you will see a difference. Good Luck

Weight training helps a person build muscles and increase body weight. If you are a very active person, you should learn to relax, which will slow down your metabolic rate.

Try adding healthy fats and proteins- eat a spoonful or two of peanut butter before each meal. (A peanut butter addiction is largely to blame for me being overweight...) If you feel committed to gaining healthy weight, you might try a calorie counting program to make sure you're intaking more calories than you're spending- try www.caloriecount.about.com

Lane Originally Answered: What are good foods to eat if im 16 years old and i want to gain weight and gain alot of muscle!?
To be honest to really put on lots of muscle you have to put on fat. Its just the way it works. In the Bodybuilding world its called bulking and cutting. People "bulk up" ie put on lots of muscle and fat really fast and then "cut" the fat off. Some good foods for you to eat would be foods high in protein. For example chicken breasts, steak, protein powder, Milk and fish. However you also need to have other things for a balanced diet. However the most important rule is KEEP EATING. No matter how much food you think you are eating you need to eat more. And no im not talking about eating extra cheesburgers. Eat 5-6 small meals every day so that you make sure that your muscles have nutrients to keep on building.
