This site does no help gain weight. sheryl238 — Jun 11, 2019 09:46PM PDT

I have being ovwer 2,000 calories stopped cardio only doing strength training and no weight gain. This site is
very general on that ... It has helped me with the nutritionist to see what i am eating so helpful that way and
any medical issues it is good for that also. I am not looking at numbers anymore on the site . It is better to
feel free and gain youself by healthy foods not stressing out on a website. sheryl
