Can a person with high metabolism gain weight?

High Metabolism and Weight Gain

A high metabolism means that you utilize calories at a faster rate; therefore you need more weight gaining nutrients and higher caloric intake than someone with a slower metabolism. If you exercise a lot, or are a naturally thin person, you may have already identified that you have a high metabolic rate. If that is the case, count your calories for a week and see how many you really are ingesting. If you aren't gaining any weight, you now have a benchmark from which to go. Once the extra calories and nutrients are maintained weight gain can be expected.

My father weighs 110 at 5'7, my sister 36 years old and weighs 93 and me, im 35 and weigh 95. I would really like to gain but i can only eat so much. Im so tired of being skinny. I would like to weigh about 120 pounds.

I have always been the "skinny girl" since childhood. I am now 39 years old, mother of two and my "super high" metabolism doesn't seem to be tapering off any. At least before I had to overeat to gain substantial weight, now I overeat just to maintain the weight. 20 years ago I was 5'3 103 lbs. Today, I'm holding it down at 5'6 119 lbs. I was always told "Don't worry after 30 you'll pick up the weight". NOT! I would like to gain about 15 lbs. to put a little junk back in my trunk!!!!

I am 16 years old and weight 115 lbs at 5'11. I have been skinny since before birth. I eat very often throughout the day (usually 3 meals and 3-4 snacks) and am fairly active physically. Mostly I get alot of walking done, as I dont have the time or disposable income to go to the gym. I can lift 40-50 lbs (and often do at my food service job where bulk is king) but haven't gained much muscle in the year i've worked at this job. On the weekends, when I work most, I have a hard time maintaining my 6 "meals" each day to keep energy and often find that I get lunch and dinner only. How can I find ways to maintain energy and gain weight at the same time? Oh, and I work at a healthy-lifestyle food place with smoothies of all sorts etc...
