Newbie here, need Help please!

Hi!

 

Newbie here...I've been thin all my life, and I want to gain weight, but not fat. I'm 5'1 and 93 lbs female, but I have a little pooch.

 

Currently I'm not really active and I get physical therapy for my neck twice a week (strength training of upper back arms and neck muscles).

 

I don't want to lose more weight, but I want to be able to get rid of that problem area

while gaining muscle around my calves, legs, arms, and the derriere/ass.

 

I would like to know any tips on being "skinny fat" and how to do this without drastic weight loss. I want to gain muscle instead of fat, since I don't want to be skinny anymore either.

 

How many carbs, fat, and protein do I need to get where I want? What kind of diet is best suited for me? Any diet that is Gluten free and Low Glycemic but will give me the energy I need to build muscle?

 

Also, I have Fibromyalgia, and cervical spondylosis, so I can't do anything too intense.

As for diet, I have food sensitivities, blood sugar issues and lactose intolerant. I cannot eat foods with wheat or gluten.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I hope someone can help me, thank you for reading. ^_^

might want to check out Dr Joel Fuhrman who has had some success with Fibromyalgia. Lessing it would be a great step forward in getting the body that you want. You will have to push your muscles to make them grow and use resources that you are taking in. I am guessing that you are vegan even though you did not say it in the intro. You can often borrow his book from the library.
