Any tips for people trying to gain weight on a budget?


Yes.
Go to supermarkets near closing time.
The bakery section should have lots of things on cheap.
Donuts for example.

Buy those enormous dusty bags of cheap supermarket brand pasta and gorge yourself.

George Clooney put on about 40 lbs in a month by doing that, to prepare for his role in Syriana.

Or you could ask plastic surgeons for all that waste fat from liposuctions, and just inject it into yourself. They wouldn't charge you for it, you're doing them a favour. And some of their patients are BIG!

So last night I weighed myself for the first time in ages and got a shock when the scales said I was 14 stone.  I went on them again this morning just to double check and now it tells me I'm 10 stone.  So I either lost 4 stone while sleeping last night or the scales are fucked.

To be fair Sway, I think you'd notice if you were 14 stone.

Honestly I don't have that good a comprehension of weight because I really rarely weigh myself, I always refer to myself as a clothes size rather than an actual weight.  I remember being 11 stone or more a while ago, and felt like I'd put on far much more weight since then, so for me it was feasible to be 14 stone.  I have no idea what it looks like!

Good going Kathryn!

I lost a pound this week, my weight loss seems to have slowed down quite a lot in the last month but I suppose that was to be expected. Still, I won't complain if I lose just a pound a week. At least I'm moving in the right direction. Just another 3 and a half pounds to lose to hit the 2 stone mark.


Over a year later and I'm still three and a half pounds away from hitting the two stone mark I did hit it briefly around September last year though....

I have to admit I haven't really been doing my diet properly for the past year and had more of a focus on not putting weight on rather than losing it. I've been enjoying my fatty foods again as I've been away quite a lot recently. Still, fatty food balanced with a half decent diet hasn't seen me gain any weight which is good.

Decided to get back on it now though for one last push to see if it is actually physically possible for me to lose more weight or wether my body just won't allow it Decided to go for a different perspective and try 'myfitnesspal' this time, their handy iPhone app is really great. Also taking delivery of a cross trainer tomorrow because even if I don't lose weight I'd like to become a little bit fitter/healthier anyway.

Here we go again....

Well it's been two and a half weeks or so and I've lost 7.5lbs on my renewed kick! Just hope it keeps dropping off!

I started incorporating some stuff from Tim Ferriss' Four Hour Body into my life recently and I've lost 6lbs in the last 2 1/2 weeks. So far I've changed one meal a day to his 'slow carb' option. I'm also doing the 'prehab' workout from the book, which is really to correct strength imbalances, but I sweat something ridiculous doing it, so presumably that's helping too. I'm very cynical towards 'easy, quick fixes' but this seems to be helping so far.

Since I started doing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in February I've lost a net weight of just over 2 stone. Considering I've built up a lot of muscle mass in the process I'd hazard a guess that I've lost in excess of 3 stone worth of fat.

Starting to train BJJ was the best decision I think I've ever made. At 5' 9" tall I was way too heavy at not far from 15 stone. I'm now a much trimmer 12 and a halfish stone and I've not been as energetic as I currently am since I left my teens behind oh so long ago.

Hopefully by the end of the year I will have hit my target weight of 12 stone

This post makes me sad

I'm 5' 10" and am happy I've managed to get my weight down to just over 15 stone

Seriously though, Christmas can't be coming at a worse time for me in this respect, my renewed kick has been going well. I'm going to try and be not so naughty this year when it comes to Christmas food and hopefully it won't derail me too badly. Hopefully I'll be under 15 stone for the first time in about eight years within a week or two....

Plate of sprouts and you'll be fine! YUM!

I tend to find Christmas Day fairly easy as love turkey and sprouts (don't tend to have the roasties) so mainly healthy stuff. Don't like Christmas cake or Christmas pudding so have satsumas for after

The running has helped me lose my giving up smoking weight gain this year so chuffed with that.

Well done Harry!

I'm going to try and cut it down to a couple of weeks unhealthy eating if I can!

Back up to a bit over 13 and a half stone now . Between jacking my shoulder in, my lift to training jacking his knee in or my instructor being ill I've hardly trained at all in the last 5 weeks.

I'll be back where I started by January at this rate .

I'm 6ft, and at my heaviest I was approaching 17 stone, now I'm a smidgeon under 15.

The running took a big hit during the Summer, I had a go at doing a few runs with other people thinking it would encourage me to do better to compete, but to be honest it just destroyed my confidence and I went off it for ages. From now on I'll just compete against myself, that seems to work best

The man speaketh the truth.

I first hit chubby status in my late teens and then stayed a fatty for over ten years until, shortly after my dad succumbed to leukemia a few years back, I was at my heaviest ever (nearly 15 stone - I'm only 5' 6" and a bit!) and some..."things" started happening to my body. That and dad's illness made me completely paranoid and do the worst thing anyone can do - self diagnose on the tinterwebs. Naturally I ended up giving myself all sorts of terminal cancers and when I finally did go to the docs it was all, of course, nothing to be that concerned about even though I needed to do something about my weight. So I did.

With taking up cycling, cutting out regular shitty food and cutting down portions, my average punching weight now flows between 10 stone 1 and 10 and a half, and this must be year three going into four that I've maintained it. Getting rid of every single piece of fat clothing I owned is a great incentive - if I put the weight back on, I have to buy a whole new wardrobe, as I didn't even keep a token pair of trousers so I could do the "this is what I wore before thing", cos it's too much of a temptation and a slippery slope back to fattery.

Although my appetite remains unchanged (I can still put away the same amount of food I did when I was 15 stone with no trouble whatsoever), my self control and will power is much better so I can walk on by a burger place, kebab shop and cake shop without feeling the need to go in and get something. Chrimbo, however, is the only time I really struggle. As YFU said, what with my family, my wife's family and our own food fancies, christmas tends to last for about a month and, whilst none of it can be called "shit" food, it's all very calorific, so I generally put on about a stone. But I make sure I'm back on it by mid January and try to get back down to my (new) average weight by the time the bike comes back out of hibernation in early spring.

But I'm finding that maintaining weight is much harder than losing it - sometimes I find out I've put on about three pounds in the space of one weekend and other times I find I've lost three pounds which has made me technically underweight. Now I tend to weight myself pretty much every morning.

But it's a very fine balancing act. Losing weight - pimps easy (you just need will power and physical work). Maintaining the same weight (give or take) month in month out - fucking difficult (it requires hard mental work).

But then if I can do it, anyone can. That is a cliche, but it's very true cos I was the dictionary definition of sedentary lifestyle.
