What to say? My granddaughter is full easily. She is 100 lbs. and 5' 9". What do I say or do to encourage her? She is naturally tall and thin and so are her dad and aunts.

I too get full easily, but mine is thru my poor health in old age.

I have the very same problem with only eating enough to feed a sparrow but feeling really full!
My problem is that my stomach physically can not hold any more food, and my mind tells me not to eat calorie rich foods to compensate for the small amounts I eat.
Therefore, after a couple of years of living with a constant calorie deficit my weight has plumetted and I'm now struggling like mad to feel like eating anywhere near normal.
I've just started on the road to recovery and hopefully weight gain (although my mental block is making this very difficult at the moment) so I'm hoping this team will be able to help me on my quest!

Please read my ticker backwards as I am trying to gain weight.

Hi Healthnut ~ I found that I had the same problem with getting full easily. There were days where I would top off the day with a calorie milkshake but those started messing with my insides.
I recently started hitting the gym and found that I naturally crave more food from working out regularly. I even have 2 breakfasts in the morning. 1 light meal before my workout and then another full meal after my workout.
I haven't been using the system to track my food and exercise but I know for sure that I'm eating a lot more food than I had been before without even trying.

Try natural high calorie/high fat foods. Avocados are great, peanut butter, almonds, etc. I found the best way for me to gain weight was eat all day long. I could't bulk up my meals because I would get to full to quickly but snacking constantly provided me with the extra calories I needed.
