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.
