I weigh 88lbs (40Kg) and I am around 1,55m tall (sorry for lame conversions), and obviously my struggle is to gain weight. According to a quick research I made I'm about 10kgs under my ideal weight (which is a lot), and I'd really like to gain at least half of that. What are my struggles? Appetite. I feel like I eat like a kid in terms of portions (not like, I most likely do) and the thing is that I get satisfied quickly and therefore I can't eat more that I do. Sometimes I feel a bit like a robot because I treat food the way cars treat gasoline, only for functional purposes. The good aspect of it is that I eat only what's necessary for my body and I don't do it for cravings or for gluttony, the bad thing is that I got stuck in that weight and can't go up. My diet I don't think is the best, it doesn't have much variety so I might be missing something. I'm not a fan of vegetables, I eat them only as food seasoning and they have to be cut in tiny pieces because in large chunks I find them unpleasant. I have also been in a sedentary state since I entered college, so I stopped doing sports and my physical activity resistance has lowered a lot. My short-to-medium term goal is to exercise more, I have a friend who is a bodybuilder and he gave me a few routines I can start with, he also told me exercising will help me gain weight in a healthy way because it'll be muscle weight. Other than that I pretty much don't know what to do because if my appetite won't let me, I cannot eat more, and my mom has a pharmacy so since I've been a kid I've taken all sorts of appetite-enhancing vitamins, which work at the beginning but then it'll be the same again. I really want to start my internships because I'll be out of town and on my own, and I won't have many of the distractions that I have here, so hopefully I can work there and start creating a habit and by the time I get back I would have that routine. ---- Oh and by the way I wish you all good luck on your journey, it takes a lot of physical and mental strength to reach the change we want for ourselves.
