    So my girlfriend has been trying to gain some weight for months now. She dropped from 121 lbs to 105 and she can't figure out why. She wanted OTs help on gaining some pounds and I figured you guys would be the best to help. She has tried eating tons of fast food but gave up because it wasn't working and she wants a healthier option. Anyone have any answers for this?

    if she has been eating the same and losing weight go see a doctor, it could be a thyroid pronlem

    she could help her self by feasting on some cock. :dunno:

    as anyone else would say, tell her to quit being such a pussy and eat. :o :o :o

    calories in > calories out = weight.

    She might have lost her appetite and even though she eats almost nothing she could think she eats like a pig. Eating a bigmac once a day isn't going to make her gain weight if it's the only thing she eats even though it's fast food.
    Tapeworm maybe.

    -she's subconsciously not eating
    -she's not eating as much as she thinks she is
    -she has a thyroid problem

    Tell her to get checked out by a doctor.
