If you want to eat a burger without gaining weight back, buy it with everything but the bread. You've fasted for four days. (Perhaps you were ill and couldn't eat. A beneficial side effect was a bit of weight loss. If you weren't too thin to begin with, that was the silver lining of your illness.) Now, you wish to keep that weight off. Fine. But how? Put your fork down sooner! You do not have to modify the makeup of your daily diet. Just do not consume as much as you did before your fast. Consume as many calories as you burn and you will maintain your current weight. You may wish to increase your activity. Pick one: walk, run, jog, hike, roller-skate, cycle, swim, play Racquetball, play tennis, play volleyball, go rowing, jump rope, do pilates, belly dance, do calisthenics. (Whatever you choose, check with your doctor, first.) Unless fasting is controlled by a pro it can be dangerous to your health! I disagree with fasting (my own opinion) and feel if an individual eats the proper foods and drinks enough water and exercises everything works just A-OK. There is no need for fasting. The brain needs nourishment from proteins, the heart needs exercise and good eating habits; the kidneys and liver need water to flush out toxins that it filters and the colon needs leafy green vegetables and fruit to keep in clear. Most people don't realize that excess weight (to a degree) can be from not having a proper regiment in diet causing the digestive system to back-up sort of like a sewer and thus not having enough bowel movements to get rid of the wastes in the body. That's why you hear of some young women using X-lax (bad idea!) Put your meals on a smaller plate so it looks like more. Eat more fruits and veggies, some chicken or fish (women only need 3 1/2 ounces of protein per meal), drink 8 - 8 ounce glasses of water and exercise, but don't become an exercise junky!

If you are gaining weight but losing fat is that ok?

Yes. If you are working out and gaining muscle tone, then it is reasonable that you may gain a little weight (a few pounds) or not lose as much weight as you normally would have if you were just losing "fat" weight. It is good that you are losing fat! In addition, you may be putting on some water weight as your body adjusts. This will go away completely within a few weeks or so. If this is not the case, and you are losing "fat" but still gaining weight, you may want to see a nutritionist or doctor to find out why that would be happening. Absent of that, there is nothing wrong with gaining a few pounds of muscle as you lose fat.

How can you increase your weight safely?

just as if you were to lose weight, gaining is the same process but backwards. in losing weight, you should lose one to two pounds a week, so in gaining, you should gain one to two pounds a week, depending on what you choose. you can increase your diet by 500 calories and if you want to gain weight by muscle mass, you lift weights to gain more muscle mass too. don't think gaining too much weight too fast isn't as bad as losing weight to fast. gaining too fast can result in heart problems especially when you are older. you may not notice them at first, but over a long period of time, they will show. also in gaining and losing weight, doctors suggest not to drink alcohol.

Would gaining weight give you the same symptoms as a pregnancy you think you are pregnant have all the symptoms but got a negative result could you just be getting fat?

Are you still getting your period? Gaining weight can make you more tired. It wont make your breast tender unless its alot of weight at once. Like 25 pounds or more in a few weeks. You do not get sick from gaining weight. You dont get swollen ankles from gaining weight, those come after gaining weight. Go to the doctor and take the pregnancy test there because its more accurate than the store one. If your not pregnant they can evaluate the weight gain. It could be something else like thyroid.
