Holy crap… 6 foot and 110 pounds :shock: That is bordering on very unhealthy and underweight.
The easiest way to eat more and gain weight is to have more meals throughout the day (not “snacks”, meals). Most people that are really skinny have a small stomach and small appetite. If you weight a couple hours in between each meal you eat, you let the stomach process the food.
So I would do something similar to this if you want to gain weight (I’ll lay it out in a schedule that would correspond with school, since you both are school aged).
Oatmeal (or cereal if you really dislike oatmeal)
2 whole eggs
Mid-morning Meal (break/ recess/ whatever you call it) 10:30 am
1 or 2 PB&J sandwiches
Carton of Milk
1 or 2 Chicken or Turkey Sandwiches
Milk or Juice
Afternoon Meal 3:30
1 or 2 PB&J or
Protein/ Weightgain Shake
Large portion of meat (doesn’t matter what kind)
Nighttime Meal 8-9 pm
1 or 2 PB&J sandwiches (getting tired of PB&J yet?)
or Cottage cheese/ yogurt/ fruit
Let me know if you have any questions about any of the above. If you don’t like one of the foods I used, substitute something you do like. It will be hard at first, but eventually you will settle into the routine. You’ll feel better, too. I haven’t ran the numbers, but that should be around 3000 calories a day. If you dont gain weight after eating like that for 2 weeks then you need to go up to 3500 calories a day and see what happens. You want to gain around 2 pounds a week. To do that, you need to consume 3500 more calories each week than your body burns.
So, the answer to weight gain lies in the spoon and fork, not the squat rack
Edit: Before anyone asks, peanut butter is an old football secret for gaining weight. And it tastes good, so I like it. If you dont want to eat the same thing that many times, switch it up with turkey breast, chicken, tuna, etc. etc. Just make sure you eat something.
