How can you gain weight without eating?
You cannot gain weight without eating a calorie surplus. Weight gain is caused by eating more than you burn off. One good technique, however, is to build MUSCLE, which weighs more than fat does! Muscular athletes weigh more than non-athletic people the same size.

It is not possible to gain weight without ingestion. Starvation causes the body to go into protective mode, as a result of which it burns energy at a slower rate and maximizes… on the conversion of all food into fat. Your body compensates for the reduction in food or drink.
If you eat too much you can gain weight from just about anyhing.
Yes, you can gain weight eating fruit! Carbohydrates almost always cause weight gain, especially when overeaten. Fruit contains a great deal of fructose, which should be eaten… in moderation to avoid weight gain. The good thing about fruit, is that it contains fiber which helps the body to avoid the sugar spike that you get from eating fiber-less sugary candy, etc. If you are trying to lose weight, avoid eating more than one piece of fruit a day. Also, NEVER drink fruit juice. Fruit juice contains all of the fructose from the fruit without any of the fiber. You might as well drink sugary soda.
Foods that are starchy, sugary, or fattening, or are very processed Ex.) White bread corn starch corn syrup (foods that have a lot of it in them) lard processed meat…s/cheeses American fast food candy/chocolate bars etc.
You can always gain weight by eating too much of something. But greens are very good for you.
EVERYTHING with calories will make you gain weight if you don't burn at least that exact amount of calories during the day
nope, al contraire. Its used to loose weight.
Essentially it will take a long time for your body to start losing weight because you body goes into starvation mode. So if you do eat very little like one strawberry a …day (or anything in small portions) your body think " Hey, this is the only food I am going to get for a while so I am going to store it up!" So instead of your body turning all the nutrients into good carbs or protiens, it stores and your body doesn't use it for energy. Eventually if you don't eat for a long enough period of time your body will start using muscle to live off of and you will basically diminish and become extremely weak.
Ice cream and bananas are 2 of the most fattening foods out there.
Some wrestlers, for example, eat certain weight gaining bars to go up in weight class.
The body is like a furnace and needs energy so it must always be fed and also be fed the right things. If you stick to the plate model it works. If you want to loose weight yo…u divide the plate in 50% veggies, 25% protein and 25% carbs. If you want to keep the weight you have you divide it equally, 33% each. If you exercise you should remember that muscles weigh more then fat so you can't just go by weight. The best way since you are bulimic is to see a dietitian to have a schedule made just for you so you get what you need and a visit to the doctor to find out what you are lacking.
Starving Herself First of all, STOP starving yourself. You are actually doing more harm to your body that way than by eating fast food every day for a month. When you star…ve yourself, you send your body a signal: you are telling it that from now on, food may be scarce so it had better store up every morsel it gets. Now nobody wants their body to hold on to every calorie it gets, right? Also, when you starve yourself, your stomach begins to kind of eat itself up; you are at risk for ulcers and other ongoing stomach related illnesses. As for how you are going to go back to eating? Slowly. Do not go crazy and eat up entire meals in the first week. Cereals, proteins, soups, veggies, and fruit. Breads are okay, but they are just fillers and will stuff you fast. Stay away from the potatoes too, they will just fill you up and make you feel terrible. Lastly, make sure to exercise a little bit every day or two; this will remind your body to turn its metabolism back on (something you turn off by starving). Low or no metabolism means the body does not burn the food, but packs it on.
You can eat lots and lots of potato chips, french fries, burgers, KFC... All that stuff! You can take the veggies outta the burgers. It is really easy to gain weight with…out taking veggies. Try pizza hut.
Unless you are gorging on huge bowls of it, very doubtful.
Fruits and Vegetables. Don't overdo heavier calorie ones like Avocados and Bananas, though. But technically, if you eat anything while you're "Starving" yourself, you're not t…ruly starving yourself. Starvation is a stupid idea anyway, for whatever reason. if you starve yourself and succeed at losing weight by doing it you probably wont ever have normal and healthy eating habits for the rest of your life, and you won't look good, you'll waste away but if you do want to.. some good things to eat is stuff like sugar free gum, crystal lite, soup is also good, chicken noodle because theres not much fat or carbs in it and its good to drink 64 oz of water a day to help lose weight, and green tea at like 8 pm or so melts away fat, but not a lot, and 1 shot apple cider vinegar every night after your done eating helps digest fat and break down fat, resulting in more fat loss, at a faster rate, good luck. Attempting starvation for whatever reason is INCREDABLY unhealthy. I HIGHLY recommend talking to a famiy member or friend you trust, and getting some help. This sounds like a pretty severe body image/ eating disorder.
If you have only been eating 500 calories a day or less and have lost weight how do you start eating again normally without gaining weight?
Answer CMartin Thanks so much for that added info you added onto the post. Great read! Marcy A human being shouldn't go l…ower than 1200 calories a day! You are basically starving your body, and actually your body will begin to feed off itself. Ping pong dieting is linked to cancer and other diseases, so be warned! First off, you have to be happy inside yourself before going on any diet. If you are unhappy then you are extremely critical of your looks and sometimes we can blame our weaker points on what we look like ... pretty, nice figure or a guy that feels he isn't good looking and isn't muscular or tall enough. If you have everything right in spirit and mind, then the rest becomes easier. Since you have been literally starving yourself, it's best to start out introducing your foods very carefully. Steamed chicken and rice for dinner and carrots (no gassy vegetables such a broccoli, beans, etc. stay away from acidic things that pasta sauces, orange juice, citrus juices, alcohol, chocolate or any unnecessary sweets, etc.) Eat more often during the day (but, smaller meals.) No lettuce! Replace it with baby spinach leaves (tastes great and is better for you!) Don't introduce red meats into your digestive tract until you are eating better. Red meats are hard to digest. Chicken, turkey, a LITTLE ham and fish. Pita pockets are excellent and you could put sliced steamed chicken in it, mixed with celery, a tiny bit of chives, thinly sliced spinach leaves, celery, mayo and a little salt and pepper if you like (or even a little garlic salt or some Ranch dressing.) Have sandwiches with soup. Eat 1/2 banana at breakfast (good potassium) and the other half at lunch. Stay away from apples for now (hard to digest) and try grapes, papaya (good for the stomach)and any sweet fruits such as cherries and watermelon or any of the melon family. Strawberries are acidic! Slowly introduce some grains into your diet (good for the digestive tract and bowel) as is at least 8 glasses of water a day. Use virgin olive oil and just a bit of butter now and then. Keep your salt intake low, but do use some salt (also good for your body to a degree.) Fruits, vegetables and poultry. Stay away from eggs right now as they can be gassy and give you cramps (these other foods I told you not to use can be introduced at a later date.) Your family doctor doesn't have the time to study nutrition so it's up to you to find a source. Go online and find a good balanced diet. Again I repeat: WHEATS, LEGUMES (BEANS), VEGGIES, FRUITS, FISH, POULTRY, RICE (ONLY HAVE POTATOES EVERY OTHER NIGHT ... IT'S WHAT YOU PUT ON THEM THAT PUTS THE WEIGHT ON) WATER. Get rid of any junk food you may have around the house and substitute these for fresh, sliced veggies with a nice low fat Ranch dressing dip. LAYS puts out a no-fat chip now and it's all natural. Drink water!!!!! Keep your dairy intake down because many people have allergies to dairy products these days. Less is best, but you should have skim to 2% milk on cereal, etc. Vitamin supplements are a good thing, but get on a steady diet and become stronger first. Some vitamins can cause stomach cramps and make a person not feel all that well if they haven't been eating properly. You can also go to a Homeopathic doctor that will help you with your diet, or ask your doctor to send you to a good nutritionist. Stop the yo-yo dieting! If you pace your eating, eat all the right things in moderation and drink plenty of water and exercise (even brisk walks or jogging or biking) you will keep your weight down. When you go below 1200 calories you are starving yourself and you will only end up gaining more weight back (more than you weighed before.) If you listen to the nutritionist you won't gain the weight back, but be a good body weight. Good luck Marcy Additional information. Read the above answer as it is so informative. Exactly how much you will need to neither gain nor lose more is not known exactly at this time because you have put your body in starvation mode, where your metabolism has greatly decreased to assure your survival. As you begin to eat and exercise normally your metabolism will increase and you will burn more calories. The rate at which you burn calories at rest or your resting metabolic rate (RMR) can be determined scientifically using an MedGem device by a dietician or otherwise estimated and then given your activity leval a calorie number calculated to stay basically the same (for example +/- 5 pounds). You weigh the most at the end of the day and the least in the morning. Don't get hung up on small fluctuations (+/- 5 lbs.) as this is normal and can depend on things like salt and fluid intake, menstrual cycle, etc. By increasing your activity leval while starting a health promoting diet, you can kind of trick your body back up sooner to a normal metabolic rate, from its greatly lowered starvation mode and thereby burn more calories.
if you are not east Asian in origin, I am afraid this is not possible.... eat more vegetables instead of eating more rice and drink a lot of water everyday.balance what you'…ve eat.
