I seem to have a fast metabolism, but I mean its hard to tell, since it could be all the damage the gluten has done. I think I am going to speak to the doctor about getting on a pure fat diet :D I eat ALOT of junk food and highly fattening foods as it is, but I also eat ALOT of fruit and vegtables and take vitimins and I drink ensure plus as well, so I get more then enough food and vitimins, I should be growing :( I hope one day I'll wake up really huge :D I'll drop by again and let you all know what the doctor says, thanks for your help :)

Hi, I havent exactly got any advice for you about why you are not gaining weight, but I do dance, and now abit about the excersise part. Yoga tends to bulk up your muscles slightly,but although you have a fast metabolism you should still excersise as normal. If you do other forms of excersise it will probably bulk up your muscles more, like running or something. Maybe you could buy some weights to get abit more muscle? Don't avoid excersise because you are thin! Theres a chance it wont effect your weight!

If your mum was also thin at your age, theres a good chance that your the same, and that you will fill out later on!

Hope I helped you abit! :)

My mom was also very thin-thinner than myself. She filled out just fine. She's fine now. I would just keep doing what you are and as long as you're eating then you should be fine. You seem to be eating quite healthy so I'd say you're doing pretty good.

I wish I had that problem. I'm exactly opposite..I NEED to loose weight. :blink: I only lost about 5 lbs before diagnosis, but I was tested early when I started showing symptoms because my mom has celiac disease. My doctors have been on my case for about 3 years now about losing weight. I need to loose about 25 lbs. I dont eat junk food. I eat a very balanced diet and I exercise for about 1.5 hours a day. I don't get it. I hope you reach the weight that you want to! Good Luck! B)
