Keep a log book of what you eat, usually it's simply not meeting the calories. Do it for a week and see if your eating enough, also log your weight as well. I have the same problem, lamppost and good metabolism. The only time I was able to gain, was eating 3k or more per day consistently.

I have the same problem. I have however been able to put on 10 lbs by using weight gainer, eating more, and lifting weights 3 days a week. Keep track of calories and make sure you're getting enough. It's not easy still a constant battle.

WANT TO LOSE OR GAIN WEIGHT: READ THIS!!!
Try checking this out. It may or may not help as it depends on whether you've calculated how much you need to eat each day

I'm on the same page here! I'm 5'3" tall and merely 108 pounds when i weighed myself this past Sunday! >.<
I know protein does help out a lot but it needs to be accompanied by a lot of weightlifting; or else, it'll turn just into fat and that's not what you want!
I really want to stop this whole "working out during phases" only, but its hard to keep going after 3-4 weeks of working out. :/
Perhaps what I need is a workout/motivation buddy to keep me going or something because I want to reach 130-145 pounds eventually!

Just an update, 8 days ago I weighed in at 145 lbs, using myfitnesspal ,ive consistently eaten and logged 2800-3k+ each day and I'm hovering around 150. I start a workout routine this week and will update again if I keep this up. One thing I know about myself, is that I drink too much coffee instead of eating in the past so I'm also cutting back on caffeine as well. I think some of us lampposts have just found ways around hunger, so just remember to eat enough to reach your goal even if you're not hungry.

Heyy your body can only gain a pound of muscle in a perfect week gym and diet wise naturally so don't gain too much fat while bulking up or it will be a problem later on well good luck with your goals
