want to gain weight
Jun 19, 2011
I'm lactose intolerant. About six month ago I decided to eliminate any food with lactose wich is so difficult. Since then I'm loosing weight because i eliminate every food that cantains lactose. I'm loosing weigh but I don't want to because I'm 6'4" and 175 pounds. I don't do exercises of any kind. Can you tell me how to gain muscle and weight? Sorry for my english but that is my second language.

You do not need milk based products to regain or maintain weight.
Concentrate on calorie dense foods and snacks that are healthy. Some calorie dense foods are: Mixed nuts, eggs, tuna, beans and rice, hummus, avocados, peanut or almond butter on whole grain bread, chicken, beef, etc. Also, exercising with weights and machines will increase your body weight by increasing your appetite and your muscle mass.
