For your hunger I would say you need to eat more fiber and the n drink lots of water so the fiber can react to the water and make you feel full . You could always try like metamusil ( I think that's what it's called), nuts and dowry it's that are also high in fiber . To gain weight I would say maybe try a diet with more protein and carbs . If you still can't gain maybe see a nutritionist she could give you a meal plan that has more calories then what you can burn in a day

Have you gone to a doctor, it might be a medical reason why you can't gain weight.

Definitely go to a doctor. You could have an overactive thyroid or some other physical reason. If not, the doc can refer you to a nutritionist who can help you set up a plan! I know how hard it can be to maintain or get to the weight you want, so sending you good thoughts!

The same thing with me blubie. I've always been thin. I'm 5"3 and weigh 94 lbs. No matter how much I eat I can't gain weight. I had a stomach flu years ago, lost quite a bit of weight and never gained it back. I don't have a thyroid issue. I've seen the doctor and nothing. I mostly eat healthy and drink lots of water. The worst for me is when every family member even the distant ones and those who aren't related to me but are related to my relatives make hurtful comments, right to my face, and I can't say anything back because it's rude.
I know some who go to the gym and drink those protein shakes, or other supplements for weight and muscles. If you go to the gym try those shakes, but look at the ingredients first.

You can get just protein powder which doesn't have a lot of crap in it. Look for Whey protein powder. Vegan and Vegetarian options contain no meat sources. I like the one from Costco best in chocolate (I just mix with skim milk) and it's the best price.

Even though I'm fat I have to take it because of an eating disorder which means I get little nutrition.

I have the opposite problem. Now at 40 I gain weight fast and it's hard to get rid of it

Weight Gain

Maybe it is your thyroid,it depends if it is overactive or underactive .Either way there is one that affects your weight gain,maybe you should ask your Doctor about it.I think that as we get older ,it becomes harder for us to loose weight,I know that is the way with me.Some women are trying to loose weight,like me and some women are trying to gain.

Weight gain

I would try Dr first to rule out everything then maybe hit the weights to add some muscle mass. You may have to increase your protein. Adding a few extra snack a day may help too

I would go see a doctor too just to make sure everything is okay. You could start consuming more fattening food such as Greek yogurt , brown pasta, etc. However there are just some women who are naturally thin and can eat anything and never gain a pound. Maybe that's you! Either way I am sure you are beautiful :)
