Re: New Story: The Battle To Gain Weight [1]

I had the exact same problem when I was his age. I had a job in high school and summers between semesters at Clemson driving a delivery truck. I would stop at McDonald's every trip - both going and returning - and get a Big Mac or quarter pounder. I usually made 2 to 3 trips a day. My weight barely fluctuated at all. I was 128 pounds my freshman year and about 135 when I graduated. I'm not tall by any stretch but at 5'9" I was pretty much a beanpole at 128 pounds.

I can guarantee that this won't be a problem for him in a few years though. Once you hit 40, gaining weight is no problem at all. Well, it is but in a different way. Unfortunately I can vouch for that!
