    Gaining weight is hard if you are a fast burner. I was that way when I was younger. You need to cut down on cardio and lift a lot. Make sure that your calorie intake is high. Go for low fat calories, but eat a bunch. I had to eat 4 large meals and 2 small ones every day to get over 4000 calories and enough protein to bulk up. Creatine helped too, but not the cheap kind. I had to buy the more expensive stuff to see faster gains.

    Hey man, maybe i can help you out.

    I've done martial arts my whole life but my whole life I have been cursed with a small frame and a metabolism from hell. I eat like a sweaty fat man at an all you can eat buffet on a daily basis. But still, i gain maybe 1 lb in a month this way. If I skip a night of dinner (or forget, or am too busy, or whatever) I'll lose a lb or two. My metabolism really sucks. Anyways, about 2 years ago I weighed in a pathetic 135lbs. I'm 5'8 so thats TINY.

    Today I am 160 - 165lbs natural and have stabilized my weight, although Im having more trouble getting over 165 now too. The way i did it was with a moderate workout schedule. 4 days a week of heavy and light lifting maybe 45 minutes each day. My fav is doing sit ups with a 50lb dumbbell in each hand. Anyways, I drink a creatine shake as soon as I wake up everyday, have a good breakfast/lunch/dinner + a protein shake and maybe a protein bar to snack on later. I'll drink another creatine shake and protein shake before I work out (on the days I do so).

    I dont buy the cheap crap or the real expensive crap, just read the labels and get the best mix of what you want. I would have never gained 30 lbs in the past 2 years if i didn't drink the creatine and protein shakes (on top of a calorie heavy diet) even with exercise because I exercised even more when Iw as still 135.

    Eat kichari twice a day.
    Take a gainer twice a day.
    Visit S and P.

    This is all the help I can provide.
