I am 6 feet 1 inch tall, 27 years old guy and weigh 52 kgs. If I
remove my shirt, you can count my ribs. I want to gain atleast 10 - 20
kgs. What are my options? A few things to note -

- I am a vegetarian. But I do eat eggs occassionally. 

- I do not like exercising nor swimming. I am too lazy for that. 

- My Work Lifestyle: I work on my computer for 8 hours per day - so my
work does not involve too much exercising either. I drive to work from
home. The only exercise I get is climbing up and down the stairs!

- My Health: I seem to be fairly healthy. I haven't been ill for years
- no fever, no backaches, no headaches etc. I seem to have lots of
stamina. I don't get tried trekking up hills (while others huff and
puff). But others can carry heavier loads on their backs.

- I rarely sweat. I probably drink one glass of water a day.

- Chocolates / ice-creams/ junk food have been blamed for obesity.
Does that mean I can gain weight by stuffing myself with these?

- With your recommended diet/suggestions, how long would it take for
me to gain 10 - 20 kgs?

Thanks -

There is no answer at this time.

your lack of excersize is good, cause all you want is fat right? if
you want mussle, you need to eat lots of protein rich foods,
carbohydrates, and a good amoutn of good fats... 40%,40%,20%,
respectively.  if you want fat.. then just eat  anything randomly and
dont excersize and youll gain weight... but the most important part
is... not how MUCH you eat but how often. thats right... people with
slow metabolism eat a lot...

you need to eat 5 small meals a day
not 3 or 2 like ur used to... but 5, spread out evenly at 7am, at 9
am, at 12noon, at 3, and at 6....

weight gain is all about having a greater energy intake than what you
expend. just eat as more that you already are eating. Being a
vegetarian wont help you with trying to gain weight, but you could
snack on lots of peanuts (50% fat. Although i wouldnt recommend
putting on lots of fat, since it isnt going to do you good. You also
need to up your fluid intake, 1 glass is no where near enough

It sems amazing that you're skinny and don't do excercise!!I suppose the 
reason for not getting tired is no excess fat.
Chips, burgers and nuts are known to have a lot of fat in them, try them!
Also try to drink more fluid.3/4 of are bodys are made up of water!
Hope my advice helps!!!

i wouldn't recommend you putting on solely fat. what i'd suggest is
taking protein shakes more than the recommended intake. I'm a
vegetarian as well and so I'm aware of the protein deficiency....eggs
are not enough to build up muscle and healthy vegetarians end up with
a relatively low calorific intake... try buying powdered protein (used
extensively by body builders!). It is usually added to milk so it can
be taken with breakfast! try to incorporate as much protein as
possible..that's the key...chocolates and ice cream will help for sure
to put on weight! though if u still want to keep clean arteries snack
on nuts. almonds, pistaccios, etc! these will boost your memory rather
than cause the drop in blood sugar level which chocs and other junk
food may cause making you feel more lethargic!
