    I can't think of any medical way to stimulate your hungry besides marijuana. Haha.

    A few things about gaining/losing weight can be a bit counter-intuitive. It breaks down into 2 factors, metabolism increase/decrease and weight that is lean/fatty.

    For instance, to gain weight you don't want to be eating all day. This puts your metabolism up all day. You should try learn to eat bigger meals 3 times a day with a big snack either between lunch/dinner or after dinner. If you have a hard time eating a lot, if you eat faster then you can eat more before the full feeling sets in. It is actually a sensation response of the nerves around your stomach and not always a direct indicator of the quantity of food you've eaten, so over time your brain can adjust the response based on what it thinks is a normal amount for you to eat. I don't know how one stretches their stomach, maybe rice? Japanese people do amazingly well at eating contests for their size.

    As far as what to eat, you need to find protein that you like if you want lean mass. As mentioned protein shakes are a great idea. I prefer Optimum Nutrition's Pro-complex. I pretty much always go with chocolate when it comes to protein powder because the other flavors have a tendency to taste weird. Nuts are a great source of protein and also high in healthy fatty oils, I like to add them to salads. Watch out for the sodium content on the salted varieties.

    Women, I can't stress this enough, please make sure you get enough calcium! You can get low fat yogurt in almost as many varieties as ice cream these days. They also have candy calcium chews. Personally, I think women should opt for even "too much" dairy products in a day.

    So things that raise your metabolism (which breaks down both lean and fatty tissue by the way!) are high intensity exercises, eating smaller meals more often, and eating fibery foods grains/vegetable/fruit (vs. heavy foods like meat or dairy). High intensity exercises past 15-20 minutes is when your body begins to break down lean tissue. Breaking down fat is a slower process which is why it gets bypassed with high intensity exercises. So to burn fat and not lean tissue, you want to focus on low intensities for a long period of time. Your body easily break downs fat for simple daily exertions like walking every day, so to burn more fat use a similar low to medium intensity level.

    Exercising in the morning before breakfast is best for burning calories and raising your metabolism all day. Exercising at night is better for building but it has to be followed by protein intake. It also may make it more difficult to get to sleep, but sleeping is the ideal time where your metabolism drops and your body can repair and build new lean tissue.

    Hope this helps! Good luck.

    No nonoo. I didn't mean alcohol. I ment regular fluids.
    I know I drink tons of fluids, and I replace it with food.
    I don't feel hunger for food, I feel hunger for liquid.
    That's about the only thing I know about why I can't gain weight. So I took it up as an option, in case she drinks a lot of fluid.
    Most people don't tend to look at it as an option.

    Probably because most people know that dehydration is unhealthy.

    I suppose this could be true if the OP is drinking 20 glasses of water a day (and replacing food with water) but that seems unlikely.

    Purposefully decreasing (let alone stopping!) your fluid intake is a remarkably bad idea if current intake is at all within the normal range....especially in the heat of summer!! Can you say heat stroke? Yikes.

Putting on a lot of extra weight just throws your system out of kilter, puts extra strain on your body, and makes it harder to lose later (with the resultant stretch marks). I would say that you would need to eat a few more calories during pregnancy (but not that many) and be sure to eat a balanced diet containing a good range of all nutrients that the baby needs; you will need a lot more vitamins and minerals than usual, especially things like calcium. Where were you getting this idea that you have to weigh more before pregancy from - have you been advised this by a professional, or told this by people you know, etc?
    Because women with low BMI have a more difficult time getting pregnant, and a pregnant woman needs to put on at least 15 pounds to be healthy, sometimes as much as 25 if she's very thin.

    I eat one meal a day, sometimes a bit more, sometimes a bit less. I continuesly drink on something. I eat nothing but fast food, pizza, hamburgers, subways, and I gorge myself with sugar content fluids all day. My BMI is 18-19. If you're skinny and want to gain weight, it's better to eat first, and then drink a glass when you're done, than drink continuesly throughout the day.

    I get what you mean. But it's easier to get the word through if I just say "Stop drinking."

    It's a military thing. So saying that it doesn't work, is like pissing on your own two legs.

    All the soldiers I saw that came through the recruit period, fat soldiers lost weight, skinny soldiers gained weight. And it was all because they were constantly active and couldn't grab that bottle whenever they wanted, or eat whenever they wanted. They drank water together, ate together, worked out together. The ones that drank less (skinny people) ate more when the day was over, and the ones that drank more (fat people) ate less when the day was over.

    You need to be able to meet me half-way in the conversation, not just look at it in colors of black and white.

    Even though you're eating junk food and fast food, it doesn't matter because you're only eating one meal a day and probably not getting enough calories. In your case junk food isn't going to make you fat - since you aren't consuming enough calories - but you might be nutrient deprived.

    You don't say WHAT you're drinking. If you're drinking coffee, sweetened beverages, juice, etc. then, yeah, that might mess with your appetite. But I don't think drinking plain water is going to stop anyone from having a normal appetite for food.
