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.

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.
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.
Yes if they have somthing wong that s causing them to hold excess water, medication or some other cause.
To gain weight without adjusting your diet, think about weight lifting and start doing some strength training. Muscle weighs more than fat.
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.
Some wrestlers, for example, eat certain weight gaining bars to go up in weight class.
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.
Not necessarily. A certain amount of the energy that you're going to be burning in the gym is going to be sugar based, readily available energy that wouldn't have translated i…nto weight, anyway, because your body would have excreted it if unused. Not all energy is stored in the body after digestion, and certain forms of energy or foods will alter how efficiently you process energy-dense material (sugar, fat, and protein.) Weight gain is not the only problem. There are problems associated with intake of certain sources of energy that the casual dieter doesn't usually understand. Certain fats are necessary in small quantities, but certain fatty foods have compounds such as HDL cholesterol which can build plaque in your arteries, and foods with lots of simple sugars can make your blood sugar spike dramatically. To address your question, however, if you were to eat ONLY 500 calories in a day, and burn 500 calories at the gym that same day, then you would not gain weight. In fact, you would likely lose some (if you'd already depleted your free energy reserves) because your body is going to be using more than those 500 calories to do other things, such as walk, and breathe. You aren't going to be eating ONLY 500 calories in a day, however, because your body needs vitamins, minerals, protein, and certain amounts of oils in order to keep in top form. (Also, you can get 500 calories from six tablespoons of peanut butter, and that would not be very filling. As you can see, the form in which you eat these calories is going to matter. You don't want to be starving all day.) Also, to put things in perspective, burning 500 calories at the gym is going to be a rather long and difficult process. To quote nutristrategy.com, if you were 155 lbs, and ran at five miles per hour FOR AN HOUR, you would only burn 563 calories. The final answer, then, is "kind of yes," but remember that this only applies if you're ONLY eating a small amount of food in a day, and that's dangerous for reasons that far outweigh the social risk of slight chubbiness.
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.
Excercise, but you shouldent have never stoped eating. atleast eat fruit and drink lots of water. your body will slowly get used to eating.
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.
Picking less fatty foods and foods with less callories in them.
Celery, lettuce, and ice. lol! besides ice, cucumber.
there isnt many foods however i recogmend a lot of fruit, vegtables and salad. it might sound horrible but it actually does work. hope you finnish your diet or what ever i…t is :) Oh and exercise helps (but remember do it everyday and for at least half an hour and keep on increasing the time if you dont get tired) you can split up the time though :-D
