I know the program isnt specifically set up for weight gain but when I put in info to gain weight it does still give me an answer and breaks my goal up.

My guess is either the programming is dropping the negative (-) sign, or you just didnt notice it, but it's trying to tell you to gain 2.5 pounds per week (lose - 2.5) and gain no less than 2 pounds per week (lose no less than -2).

As Coach Jen mentioned though, the caloric info and doctors recommendations are probably important, 10 pounds in a month is alot.

Our program isn't set up to give calorie recommendations for gaining weight, especially so much in a short period of time. Is your weight gain for health reasons? If so, I'd ask your doctor for a referral to see a registered dietitian who can create a meal plan specific to your needs to help you gain in a healthy way.

Trying to gain 10 lbs in one month. The weight goal page tells me I'd have to lose 2.5 lbs per week and it requires me to not lose more than 2 lbs per week.
