Not likelyA true ectomorph has trouble adding bulk -- either fat or muscle mass -- to his (or her) frame. It is possible, albeit unlikely, for an ectomorph to add some adipose tissue and raise his body-mass index, even to unhealthy levels, but usually not without great effort.

Yes, but they'd have to be trying to get fat.

If you're an ectomorph who's trying to become fat, here are some tips.

1. Eat more meals per day. This makes you less full.

2. Eat lots of junk food. Cake is excellent.

3. A high fat, high sugar diet promotes intestinal bacteria that aren't metabolically efficient and store fat. This way, your metabolism dies down.
