I am and have been fed up (reverse pun) with being way too thin. I do demanding work which contributes to this. Whatever I gain I lose within about two days. if I lift weights... all evidence of that is gone within about 36 hours!

I eat organic and take quality supps etc. It's not really the nutrients and my face and skin have the healthy glow. I simply can't gain or keep weight on as my metabolism is off the chart for some reason.

What in god's name can I eat, that is safe on all counts, that will put the weight on!? Someone said peanut butter. I'll go with sunflower butter but this isn't enough of course.

One summer I went through... 15 Cans of Weight Gain Powder; which did absolutely Nothing. I do not think it's a worm etc. as in the past I've been able to gain. But this was when I tripled up on everything and wasn't as active. I simply can't keep that up due to Both time and expenses.

There's got to be some safe, high calorie foods. They say potatoes and bananas. Doesn't seem to work.

This and or... what (ie creatine) powder is truly safe to consume for lifting? I somewhat like to lift but all this effort for nothing is a bit pathetic.

For pure calories, the choice has got to be buckwheat.
It's a seed that flakes and powders like an oatmeal.
Made as a 'porridge' on goats milk, it's rather tasty
and the goats milk good is for the gut.

However, if you are one of those with a so-called high
metabolism, there is only so far calories will get you.

Also worth bearing in mind that weight-dysregulation, - whether
up or down-- is often related to gluten and casein consumption.

That's a metabolic side-effect, another may be low gut efficiency.

High metabolism, present. Never heard anyone mention buckwheat in this but I've definitely been low on calories. Have been eating sunflower butter but there's a bit too much oil. Discarding the oil makes for an over dry paste though. Thanks for that.

If you have a bad attitude, you are less likely to lead a successful and fulfilling life. Being positive, optimistic, and resilient, on the other hand, can help you turn a bad day around, filling your life with laughter and joy.
