You are an ectomorph(naturally skinny) and it is very hard to gain weight for you but it is possible. You need to eat CONSTANTLY, 5-6 meals a day, meals not small meals. But they need to be healthy, ie Protein such as Tuna is great
Green Vegetables
and Carbs are the most important thing for an ectomorph to put on weight
If you are a weightlifter taking protein shakes 3 times a day morning, post workout and nighttime will help you to gain weight quickly. And doing weights will help you make sure that all the food you are eating is not 100% fat, stay away from junk food as it will just be fat and im sure you do not want thatHealth Question & Answer

Peanut butter sandwiches on whole wheat bread.
Great big bean burritos with sour cream and cheese.
Anything with a lot of calories.
A pound is about 3500 calories. Just eat 5x3500 calories over your calorie needs during the next few weeks. The most calorie-dense foods are fats/oils. The proteins and carbs (equal.) So anything with a lot of fats will take your calorie intake up and help you gain weight.

Try a fatty cheeseburger with a milkshake and fries. Yummy and fattening. Polish it off with a donut or two. Dang. This is making me hungry.Health Question & Answer

Cinnabon, lol. Yes, that would work. As well as cheesecake. Anything similar to Cinnabon and cheesecake will stack the weight. Healthier things that put on the weight are things like potatoes. Things heavy in carbs and starch. Bread also works. Things like that.Health Question & Answer
