How can I gain weight while having a high metabolism?

I've been the same weight of 86 for 2 years, and I'm 16, It's embarrassing that I'm so skinny while a lot of girls I see have nice shaped full bodies, and normal legs. Any suggestions?

Eat more steak and chicken, the have a lot of protein which helps your muscles grow!!

Your patents are just trying to scare you!! You will gain weight when you get older. My daughter was super skinny in her early teens and would out eat both her dad and I!!! All in good time:)

I was alway very thin and had a difficult time trying to gain weight. What was helpful for me was working out at the gym helped me to gain muscle and I drank ensure plus along with my meals for the extra calories.

Do absolutely no exercise, try to get out of it anyway you can. Eat like a pig, a lot of fattening stuff.

Or protein also, to help you get bigger legs.

Increase your carb intake and eat several (4-6) small meals a day. The more often you eat, the more active your metabolism. If you exercise, keep your cardio (running, biking, aerobics, etc) to a minimum (approximately 15 mins) and stick with weights - light/medium weights with lots of reps to TONE and not build too much muscle!

Pump some iron, keep your aerobic exercises low, eat more proteins and complex carbs so it takes longer to break down.
