I'm trying to gain weight, but nothing is helping. I'm naturally skinny, and I do have a high metabolism, what's wrong?
I've been trying to gain weight over the Summer. I'm about 105 pounds and I wanted to gain 21 or 30 pounds. I'm also 5'8 and 17 years old.
I've been eating lots of peanut-butter, whole grain, fattening milk, protein, veggies, fattening milkshakes, protein milkshakes, and more.
I do have a high metabolism, so that's one of my problems and I am naturally skinny; which makes me not able to gain weight at all.
I don't like to be skinny. I don't feel beautiful at all. I want to gain weight so bad, but nothing is helping. People's been telling me that I am beautiful, but how? Whenever I look in the mirror I feel so insecure and ugly. Sometimes, I do feel pretty, but not a lot of times.
What's wrong with me? Why can't I gain weight no matter what I do?
I also work out a lot, so that I can build muscle and not look anorexic.
I don't have an eating disorder, I'm not anorexic, or bulimic.
