i understand perfectly. I have tried tracking my food intake with Sparkpeople and it helps a little. I am usually around the 1800 calorie mark. I can not gain anything. I even take a protein shake twice a day (they don't taste too bad) but still nothing. My problem is my salt intake. I am not a sweet eater but love my cheesies and chips. I love all food, beef, pork, chicken seafood. EVERYTHING. I love veggies and fruits too. I have a nut allergy so that rules that out. I wish I could gain 25 pounds. My 6 year old has the same problem as me. She only weight 44 pounds while our neighbours chile weight 55. Not a big difference but I am worried she will grow up underweight too

I am a married 33 childless lady form South East WI. I am so glad to see there are so many others with this issue and I am not on an island on my own! I tried to find sites for people who are thin but they are all for people with eating disorders. I do not have an eating disorder at all. I love food eat without guilt (one of the problems I have with eating junk).I have been trying to gain weight in a healthy way. Though my bad food habits (mostly pasta and meat) have started to reek havoc but not in the form of gaining weight. This last year I notice my body changing and I need to uptake my fiber to help prevent digestive issues (constipation is starting to get chronic) and honestly eating the planet like products helps me. I have one issue though and that is trying to get over 2000 calories without having to eat fast food, tones of fatty meat and sugary stuff. To be honest I canít get to 2000 let alone over. Granted it isnít that a donít enjoy bad fatty fast food (I love bacon too) them I am quite addicted actually, but my family (even though we are on the skinny side) has a history of high blood pressure, and bone dieses, arthritis and heart issues. Currently I do fine but I want to prevent things as much as possible and eating crappy food just isnít going to help me in the long wrong. Also when I do gain weight the only it place it goes to is my stomach. THE ONLY PLACE I DONíT WANT IT!! I want it to go to my ridiculously skinny legs, arms, and a little more padding in my butt wouldnít be bad either lol.
Foods I donít like: All nuts including the fake nuts peanuts Really bitter veggies and I despise broccoli Beans (the texture just turns me off and makes me gag) Fish and Sea food
Foods I like: Most dairy Most meets (beef isnít my favorite but I can eat it) Fruit lover Veggies I do like (far and few between but opening up to some): Green Beans, Raw Cauliflower, Carrots, Salads with various lettuces Pasta and grains of any type!
