Everyone tells me I have to eat healthy and alot to gain weight. But I have trouble with that. For example: on Monday I had a great workout and for the next two days I was eating everything in sight, whether it was good or not. But then yesterday I worked out again, had a brief lunch and spent the rest of the day doing physical activities with outdoor chores and had NO appetite. Same thing today. I spent several hours moving furniture and doing yard work, yet I had no appetite at all. Do you know why this might be?

And I have trouble knowing what I should be eating? Are there certain foods I should be concentrating on? Do you find it inconvenient? How do you manage?

First, if you have no health concerns, ignore "weight". Look at ability first. Focusing on external appearance is not only futile (physical appearance is a reflection of genetics and ability) but can lead to vanity and doing stupid things.

So, focus on ability. For body mass, intense activity at a relatively high volume with amble rest results in increased muscle mass.

For exercise, I recommed this book: http://www.dragondoor.com/b31.html

Do not get books designed for "bodybuilding" or bulking up! They focus on externals to the detriment of the body's ability.

Also, accept there is a limit and give thanks to God for what you have been given :)
