How to Gain Weight for Women

female lifting weights Question from a reader. I am female with a skinny figure and would be considered by most people to be underweight. Will a women’s weight gain program work for me?

Yes! But it can only be achieved with sweat and hard work, regardless of your age. The same principles for weight gain apply to both men and women with only one major difference. Men and women were born with different shapes and hormones. Therefore any muscle gain you get as a result of diet and training will only serve to accentuate the feminine shape you already have. You will look sexy and feel better about yourself!

Weight gain can come in the form of fat, water and muscle. By far, muscle is the most attractive of the three. Since you are a female I can understand any concern you might have about getting too muscular. Most of the bodybuilding women you see have great genetics. They are not hard gainers like the majority of women and are usually taking steroids (male hormones). The only way a female could look this ripped is from steroid usage. And let’s not forget that the female bodybuilders which you see in bodybuilding magazines are professional athletes. Their diet and training is a full time job for them. They dedicate their life to building a better physique.

Regardless of what you may have read, it is possible for women to gain weight without looking “bulky”. And even if you do become more ripped then what you would have hoped, once you have reached your goal or feel that you are looking too muscular for your own tastes you can always modify the program a little to suit your needs.

Similar to weight gain for men, diet plays a key role for gaining weight with women. You need to be consuming excess calories so that instead of having a calorie deficit, the opposite is true. You are consuming more calories then what your body requires, so it has to store this energy somehow, and with a good training and diet program, it will turn these calories into muscle instead of fat.

First of all, determine your weight gain caloric needs. Once this is calculated, you want to consume 300-500 additional calories per day. This is no different for women is a topic which is well covered on this site. The main point which I wanted to discuss in this article, which relates to muscle building for women, is the issue of hormones.

As you may already know several hormones play a key role in the ability to gain muscle. Without going into too much detail, the “male hormone” testosterone is the muscle building hormone. The amount of testosterone in your body is a limitating factor because you can not build more muscle if your testosterone levels are not high enough. This is why you see female bodybuilders who use synthetic testosterone (steroids) experience faster muscle gains as their limitating factor has disappeared.

Testosterone is referred to as the “male hormone” because testosterone levels are lower in women. Women need not be discouraged though. Testosterone levels can be increased naturally through specific natural training methods and diet.

Several studies have shown the positive effect that resistance training has on increasing testosterone levels in the body, especially directly after a workout. This is why it’s a good idea to drink a protein shake post workout, to take advantage of the testosterone spike.

For the ladies: Don’t be afraid of the weights, get a gym partner and don’t be intimidated by the guys in the gym. Attend a reputable gym with a supportive staff that will assist you and give you proper guidance on how to lift. Your weigh training program should be focused on progressively increasing the resistance. Do special muscle building workouts with the aim of gaining mass instead of building muscular endurance, which includes doing fewer reps and lifting heavy.

I have been put on a naturopath diet (for health reasons) where I have to eleminate many foods from my diet – weighing a happy, healthy sized weight of 60kgs at the start of the year. I now only weigh 50kgs which I am not happy about.

I am hungry all the time and feel nausiated when I do eat, so I am finding that I am unable to eat too much.
The foods I need to cut out from my diet are dairy, sugar, potatoes, bananas, coke, coffee and tea. (with the exceptions of sweet potatoes and goats, rice, oat and soy milks)

I would like to put my weight back on but am finding it very hard and need some guidence.

amrita November 4, 2009 at 2:08 am

I have a very big problem im 30 years old and mother of 1 child and i’m just 50 kg. The problem is that when i get stressed i lose a few pounds and to gain the weight back is big problem for me. I eat 3 proper meals per day. Please suggest me what to do. Thankyou.

ky November 9, 2009 at 4:17 pm

hi, i am 20 years old and am 5ft 5in. and am currently recovering from anorexia. i weigh 92.5 lbs and need to gain weight. I have already been hospitalized and am on the verge of going back in which i want to avoid. I am very much into fitness and really need to get my weight up to 113lbs. I came across Flavia Del Monte’s workout program and was thinking of trying it. I think that it would be easier for me to gain the weight if it was muscle gain. What do you suggest I do? Thank you!

Hi I am 19 years old and I have weighed just under 100 pounds since I was a freshman in highschool. I am 5′ 2″ and I have always eaten healthy. I eat chicken breast, multigrains, fruits, vegetables and fats also. I also used to excercise everyday in highschool, I would do yoga and also weight bearing excercises and I have still not been able to get over 100 pounds. Do you have any suggestions.

Debra December 7, 2010 at 7:34 am

I have a very hard time puting on weight & if I’m under a lot of stress I don’t feel like eating. Is there something I can take to make me hungry ? I need something to help me to deal with the stress.

Baby luv December 30, 2010 at 8:05 am

I’m a 20year old freshman @ college. In as much as i would love to gain weight, i find food to be rather boring and because of this i easily lose my appetite.I used to be curvy and healthy in high school but not any more. I desperately want to gain weight for the sake of my health&fitness,what can i do?
Just like Debra & Jillian, i want to feel hungry and look more feminine.
Any suggestions?

Taylor January 10, 2011 at 4:47 pm

Hi, I’m 18 and 5? 1? and right now I only weigh 81 lbs. This is not normal. I have always been slightly underweight and I normally stay around 90-88 lbs. A few months ago I started college and I know I have been putting a lot of stress on myself because I want to succeed so badly and I know I have not been eating enough. (I am NOT anorexic and I am sick of people thinking I am!) I do not like how thin I look. Everyone keeps telling me, “Your so skinny why don’t you go eat a few hamburgers?” I find that lately I don’t have much of an appetite but my energy levels are still the same. I used to run/ exercise nearly everyday but stopped when I started school because I haven’t really had the time to do it anymore (could this have (plus stress) affected my appetite?). I have been a pescetarian for a little over a year now but as far as I know this has not affected my weight. I have gone to my doctor yet because I happen to have an extreme and irrational fear of anything medical. I don’t even like to take pain meds for headaches or sore muscles. I’d really like to get back up to at least 88 lbs. Is there any way I could improve my appetite?

N January 12, 2011 at 2:24 am

pallavi kapoor February 17, 2011 at 1:55 pm

As u guys have shown ur problem here, there is no need to worry, kindly concentrate your proper diet, take your meals properly including breakfast, lunch and dinner. in lunch u can take green leafy vegetables or pulses with a healthy drink,and never miss your breakfast, to gain the weight you can take paranthas with a full glass of milk or two bananas, and in dinner you should take some nutritious diet, take biscuits with tea and drink creamy milk.

afi March 5, 2011 at 8:29 pm

I’m 18 years old with a super fast metabolism and weigh 103 pounds With a height of 5’4. Yes I’m supper thin. What can i do or eat, or what type of exercise can i do to gain weight as soon as possible, summer is coming up and i really would like to feel comfortable about my body when wearing a bathing suit :s i need your help please!

erin June 16, 2011 at 3:53 am

Will anything ever work? I’ve tried it all it seems like, but maybe I’m wrong and I just don’t realize it yet. I want bigger thighs so I do a lot of leg exercises along with increasing my calorie intake. I drink a lot of Ensure Plus with my meals as well. Still no results. I’m not happy with my body and it shows. A lot of my friends tell me I’m too skinny or joke around and tell me I look like I’m on drugs or anorexic. I’m none of those things. I’m naturally skinny, at five foot seven weighing 110 pounds. I know I’m skinny but I’m not anorexic dammit! I’ve become a world class bitch to everyone around me because I always feel like I’m going to be made fun of and I’m sick of being so darn skinny. Any tips would be very helpful and appreciated.

Desperate June 19, 2011 at 10:26 am

I’m 17 years old and I currently weigh 98lbs with a height of 5’8″. I lost 8lbs in the space of two months and I’m guessing it was due to exam stress. I’m not anorexic. I eat up to 5 times a day but yet I cant seem to gain any weight. I hardly workout since I’m afraid that working-out will only cause me to lose more weight. I just want to feel and look healthy again. I would love some advice on how to gain weight effectively with my very fast metabolism. Thank you! :)

Kimberly June 30, 2011 at 10:27 pm

I am so glad I found this site for some good tips and to see that I’m not the only one in this situation or similar. I am 25 and 5’3″ 101 lbs, I’m also a mom of 2 kids. After my husband deployed I got so caught up taking care of the kids that by the end of the day I realized pretty quickly I started losing weight doing that. Now that he’s been gone for a while I am trying to play catch up and put the weight back on cuz I’m tired of hearing from people “Are You OK?” Other than when I was pregnant I have always had a very hard time gaining weight. I’m going to try these tips, I hope it works!

sneha panchal July 18, 2011 at 5:00 am

hi.. my sister is 24 yr old.his weight is 36. she feel like she have energy she dont feel weak, but she look weak. she eat poor, because her stomach can only take that much. when she full she feel like vomit .she want to gain weight and look good also get picked on for being skinny. please give me proper suggestions. i know she have to eat BIG, but how can the BIG fit in her small stomach. Also i must mention sometimes the smell of food puts her off eating.

Jennifer September 30, 2011 at 12:27 am

Hey, my name is Jennifer. Im currently 18 years old, about 5’2 and weigh 100lbs. 2 years ago i weighed 120lbs. I guess stress in highschool caused my weight loss. I have done almost everything to gain weight. I eat all the time. I dont work out because i fear it might make me lose weight. I am unhappy with the way i look now because i know i weighed more and look better in the past. I would really appriciate it if i could recieve tips on what pills and/or powders i could use to gain weight! thank you

Erin September 30, 2011 at 1:09 am

Jennifer, even though I haven’t been completely successful at gaining weight, I find that doing strength training exercises helps a little. I’m sure you’ve heard that a million times, but I do think it might help. Stay away from cardio as much as you can because it burns so many calories. I hate the way I look too. It sucks! People who aren’t underweight have no idea how hard it is on us skinny chicks. If people keep calling you anorexic or something I would say something back like “bitch shutup already, you don’t know how rude you’re being and you look so stupid. I’m surprised you’re not skinnier than I am with hoow much you run your fuckin mouth.”

Erin September 30, 2011 at 1:22 am

, Protein powders don’t work! All they do is make you sick to your stomach. They taste awful and when people suggest adding fruit or peanut butter to make it taste better, it only makes them taste even worse! Nasty. Chalky. Lumpy. Thick. Ewww. Ill pass on the powder. You could try eating couscous with some butter and cheese mixed in. That’s really high in calories and its good for you. Tastes good too.

rachael October 9, 2011 at 6:37 pm

I am 28 and like you, jennifer, I am five foot two and weigh about 110. I did weigh 125 and loved the way I looked then but for some reason like stress I dropped weight very quickly. It is so hard to freakin gain anything back and a pain in the ass because i have to constantly worry about fattening or high calorie foods. Can anyone tell me about an effective diet to use to pack on some poundage?

Christine Maine October 30, 2011 at 1:08 pm

I am 19 years old. I am a mother of a 9 month old baby boy. I am a server so I run all the time. But I am terribly too skinny. I can’t fit into any of the pants I wore PREPREGNANCY!!!! ): It saddens me and I feel very self concious, I need a way to be able to eat and work as a server and take as much calories and healthy food as possible. I only weigh 107 lbs and I am 5′ 4″ and I want to gain at least 20 lbs. any suggestions???

erin November 3, 2011 at 1:22 am

@Christine Maine….. aww, I’m sorry to hear that. I can totally relate! I’m a mother of 4 and I am a little skinnier now than I was back in my pre pregnancy days. It sounds like you have your hands full with work and taking care of an infant which is very difficult to do and it really takes a toll on your body. I’m 5 foot 7, and I weigh about114 pounds (give or take a pound or two). The more stressed out you are, the more you will lose weight without even realizing it.
Here are some food suggestions that may help: Nature Valley Fruit and Nut trailmix bars, cous cous, raisin bran with extra raisins, Ensure Plus, Michelina’s frozen entrees. That’s just to name a few. I still have issues with my weight to this very day. I hate my legs because they are so damn skinny and long. What part of your body do you have issues with the most? I would love to give you more suggestions if I knew what body part you want to change the most.

peace December 15, 2011 at 2:44 am

I am 27 years old and weigh 40kg. All my family members are all making jest of me because of my leanky stature. I eat heavily, take food supplement and sleep alot yet there is no improvement. Pls help me because am tired of people reffering to me as tiny thing. Thank you.

Sweyn78 December 26, 2011 at 7:05 am

You’ve got to be kidding me…
You’re telling women to raise their testosterone levels and gain a bunch of muscle?
I can guarantee you the average man does NOT want buff women. In fact the average man wants FAT. Breasts, hips, curves, et cetera — these are all fat! You know what you do when you raise your testosterone and gain a bunch of muscle? Less curves!
This article is supposedly geared-toward underweight women. Surprise: gaining muscle isn’t going to make you any less underweight (except perhaps on the BMI, which is a piece of crap by the way).
I’m sure you’ve all heard that fat is evil, but this just isn’t true! Normal weight and overweight both have many health benefits. Some of the ones for overweight women are:
*Decreased chance of underweight babies
*Decreased chance of birth-defects in general
*Considered more attractive by many men (the majority of the other prefer normal, with very few (mostly gay) prefering skinny, muscular, testosterone-filled “women”)
*Higher estrogen levels (*gasp* why would a woman want estrogen?)
*Overweight and normal women don’t drop periods like many skinny, muscular women do
*Younger appearance (what? Gaining weight makes you look younger? How? Good question; I’m glad you asked. When you’re really skinny (and muscular), your facial bones stick-out, making you look more angular and mannish. With a healthy (normal or over) weight, your face smooths itself out, looking fresh, young and attractive)
*Healthier skin (it’s no secret that subcuteneous fat is a big part of what makes women’s skin so nice)
*More curves
*Bigger boobs
*Bigger butt
…Need I go-on?
Effects of this unnecessary testosterone working-out?
*Increased chance of dropping period (yes, believe it or not, higher testosterone levels and lots of working-out make you less fertile)
*Less healthy babies (especially in the sense of low birth-rate and developmental problems)
*Less curves
*Smaller, more pectoral muscle like breasts
*A mannish butt
*Less subcuteneous fat (and, therefore, more mannish skin)
*Noticeable Muscles (at least when you’re overweight no one will see them. If you’re underweight and you gain muscle, everyone’s gonna know) — I don’t know many guys who like muscley women (the ones I know who do are unsurprisingly gay)
*Increased risk of cancer (what?! Why? It has been shown in several studies that high protein levels greatly increase the risk of cancer. It’s really no wonder, though, when you think-about it; protein is the basic building block of life, and it stimulates and encourages cell-growth. When you have more protein than you need, you’re stimulating more cell-growth than you need. ‘Nough said.)
Ladies, please do not listen to this person’s nonsense, for it is, well, nonsense. If you are willing to devote time to learning the truth, well, the internet awaits.
Good health, and Happy Yule! :)

John March 15, 2012 at 5:40 am

For everyone reading this, DON’T believe what “Sweyn78 has written above.” This user has obviously not done proper research.

I will tell you what really goes on when you raise your testosterone levels naturally and what happens to your body in response to it. Believe in what I have to say as I’m currently a student studying Fitness at the Queensland Academy of Fitness so I know exactly what I’m talking about.

As we all know everyone produces hormones. Both males and females produce hormones in certain ratios. Women produce a higher ratio of Oestrogen and Progesterone compared to Testosterone. Men also produce Oestrogen and Progesterone but in much smaller quantities however they mainly produce Testosterone. Women produce testosterone in their ovaries and adrenal glands whereas men produce testosterone in their testes and adrenal glands.

Most men actually prefer women who are not only curvy but also fit. Building muscle for women will in fact make them even more feminine.

These women below all lift weights and are very feminine. So for all the women who are afraid of lifting weights don’t believe the myth that lifting weights will make you more masculine, in fact quite the opposite.Check Here.

There is absolutely no reason why raising levels of testosterone levels naturally in women will wreck havoc on their health. In fact there are many benefits of raising testosterone levels naturally through exercise and nutrition.

Benefits of raising testosterone levels naturally in women include:

*Increase in the size of curves as a result of increased muscle mass and fat deposition
*Increased strength and endurance
*Better outlook in life, improved self-esteem and confidence
*Decreased risk of injury
*Faster recovery from injury
*Increased fertility
*Lower birth weight within a safe range
*Easier and faster birth from stronger muscles

In contrast, significantly overweight and obese women run the risk of:

*Increased risk of injury
*Slower recovery from injury
*Decreased fertility
*Increased risk of cardiovascular disease
*Increased risk of developing type-2 diabetes
*Poorer outlook in life, lowered self-esteem and self-confidence
*Higher birth weight resulting in increased risk of complications during childbirth
*Increased risk of dying during childbirth
*Increased cardiovascular risk for the baby
*Increased risk of giving birth to babies with congenital heart defects

…and so many other risks.

Breasts are composed of not only the mammary glands and surrounding fat but also the underlying pectoral muscles. Women who work out will notice their breasts get slightly raised from muscular hypertrophy of the pectorals.

It’s possible to be overweight and still be healthy so long as you exercise on a regular basis. However being significantly overweight or obese will wreck havoc on your health.

“Sweyn78” is wrong in that high protein levels greatly increase the risk of cancer. There are no reputable studies to show that increased protein intake leads to an increase in cancer. There is a study that deals with high protein intake and kidney disease however the conclusion that high protein intake led to kidney disease was done on a group of individuals who had pre-existing kidney diseases. So in conclusion, high protein intake will not wreck havoc on your kidneys in a healthy person.

There maybe some confusion surrounding certain protein sources that may increase cancer risk such as red meat (i.e. steak, mince, etc.) Other protein sources such as chicken and turkey do not increase your risk of developing cancer.

Ladies, please do NOT listen to “Sweyn78″. Obviously this user has written nonsense. Don’t risk your health by reading what this user has said.

Daniele June 6, 2012 at 1:14 am

I’m 4’11
20 years old and 93.8 Ibs 5 months ago I was a decently healthy weight at 120 Lbs and I miss it I instantly dropped my weight down to 79 Lbs, I’m still uncomfortable with how my body looks now, I drink Nutriment and Ensure plus to keep a somewhat healthy weight and I also eat peanut butter now I cannot stand the taste or the smell of it but, I do it because I know it’s loaded with calories and fat calories. Another thing I have ate is Avocados There as well loaded w. a lot of healthy vitamins, antioxidants and FAT calories.
I’ve went to 79.0 lbs to 93.8 in less than 5 months. If there is anything else I can do I will I want my body back!!

John June 7, 2012 at 10:03 pm


It’s great to hear you progressing well with your weight gain. To gain the last 26 pounds you should keep on consuming what you’re already consuming and start doing resistance exercises such as push ups, pull ups, chin ups, dips, body weight squats and pistol squats. If you do have access to the gym I suggest you do barbell squats, deadlifts and bench press. These are just some of the best exercises for gaining weight and muscle.

Cowen July 1, 2012 at 11:25 pm

I am turning 21 soon and I have been with my partner for 15months. When we got together I was 70kg and now I am only 60kg. I am not happy with it. I want to gain that 10kg back that I have lost. I feel I have lost who I am. I need to know how to gain weight…

Pamela November 9, 2013 at 8:36 pm

So, I’m 17 years old, my height is around 5’4 1/2, and I weight 90 lbs, I’ve weighted this for about 3 years. I’ve been really skinny all my life, and my parents have always given me pediasure-ensure and extra vitamins, and lot’s of food. I eat as much as I can, I eat like six times a day and eat anything I feel like eating, fat and some healthier food as well. I’m really skinny but I don’t look unhealthy as if I a serious problem, plus I have a tiny waist, which makes me look a bit curvy. However, I wish to be curvier, I want my legs to be less thin and my gluteus to grow. I just joined a gym, and I’m beginning my training, I’m doing just a little bit of cardio and mostly lifting weight. Also, I’m beginning a “diet” of eating more and more each meal, as much as I can, lot’s of protein and more fat, and drinking ensure twice a day. I really do hope this works, I don’t want to get such a muscular body though, just the right amount of muscle for a girl and my body, but I really want thicker legs and a bigger butt. Is there anything else I could do to accomplish my goal?
