What's the Best Way to Gain Weight?

By Peter Hibberd, M.D.   |   Tuesday, 09 Jul 2013 09:52 AM

Question: I’m a senior in good health, but everyone says I’m too thin. I can’t seem to gain weight, no matter what I eat. I drink a lot of coffee. Could this be causing my thinness?

Dr. Hibberd’s answer:

Coffee won’t cause weight loss or prevent weight gain. If you have always been thin, thank your parents. Being thin is rarely a bad thing.

But if you have been losing weight recently, you should see your doctor for an evaluation.
