    Help

    Well I had my tonsils taken out friday. And today I just finally was able to eat normal food again. I stepped on to the scale tonight and felt like I was gonna shit a brick. I weighed in at 112. I lost 7 damn pounds. And I can't workout for three more weeks, so I figured with all the spare time I have now I'm just gonna eat all I can. But my question is does anyone know around how much I need to eat to gain weight? I would say my bodyfat is maybe 7-8%. I just want to know the minimal for weight gain and how much I should eat to gain about a pound to a pound and a half a week, and I also have a pretty high metabolism.

    315x5 squat (atf)
    260x1 bench

    Probably a good portion of that weight was water and a little fat. Just eat big while you rest, steak eggs peanut butter etc. Your body needs to heal itself from the operation.

    ok here is how i would do it..

    1) Find your average daily caloric intake(ADCI). Add up all the calories you eat in 7 days. divide by 7. This is your daily caloric intake.

    2) To add mass increase calories. Most can add muscle without body fat by increasing their ADCI by 20%. Multiply your ADCI in step one by 20%. Add the answere to the number in step 1. This is your new average daily caloric intake.

    3) Find the fat calories. Low fat diets provide 15% fat. Multiply your new ADCI in step 2 by .15.

    4) Subtract the fat calories in step 3 from the new ADCI found in step 2.

    5) To fint protein requirements, multiply your bodyweight by 1 (or 1,5 if your body requires more protein)

    6) To find protein calories, multiply the answere to step 5 by 4.(protein requirements x4.)

    7) Subtract the answere to step 6 from the aswere to step 4.

    8) To find carbohydrates in grams, divide the answere in step 7 by 4.

    drink lots of whey protein milkshakes with ice cream, milk, etc.

    My tonsils hurt for a while afterwards. SOlid food like steak was out of the question.

    damn if you only weight 112 lbs you are really small. You need to eat all the time.

    My woman weighs 112 and she's a quite thin long distance runner.
