My husband swears by Zone Perfect bars for adding weight. The dark chocolate ones are really good. Lots of protein in em! I have to force myself to lay off em. *Bad bars! Bad!!*

Ensure or drinks of the like.
We had to give my oldest son some pedisure for awhile to help him gain a little weight. He ate normally, but he was sooooo tiny! It helped a lot!

My aunt has the same issue, she keeps a bag of dove chocolates in the fridge... everytime she walks by she has one. She has put on a about 20 pounds that way... but she is still soooo thin.
Depends on the day and my mood lol...I definitely eat lunch and dinner every single day, regular sized meals (but I don't eat a lot). I don't really "snack" by having a little bit of food every few hours or minutes.

Yeah a lot of my friends recommended protein bars...does it help me put on FAT though? I know this is TMI but last time when I went to the gym to tone a bit, I lost so much fat I lost my you-know-what for a month :X. I don't mind being a little soft XD I'm like a scarecrow right now :(...I am 173cm and 50kg (Uhhhhhhh 5'8" and 110lbs)

If I remember right protein when not used to gain muscle mass will be stored as fat. So theoretically the protein bars + no exercise could help you put on weight.

You should be able to find them at the grocery store, that's where we bought the pediasure.

Thanks for the advice; yeah I definitely want to stay away from the"let's just be friends" cliche. You guys are so lucky you found someone great without having to go through all of this hassle!

Yeah, I don't know much about bulking up, but I was going to suggest protein bars/shakes tojo.
