    Have you talked to your doctor about this? He/she can set up a nutrition plan to gain weight in a healthy way.

    Your doctor will also check to see if there are any underlying problems that are causing you not to gain weight.

    290 pounds is very heavy, why do you want to be obese? Are you looking to gain fat or muscle?

    Talk to your doctor.

    Good luck.

    OK my jaw just about dropped and shattered on the desk! You want to be 290 lbs? Why??

    You got to be gaining weight for football or something to the nature right? You are at a good weight right now, I bet you have 10% or less body fat. Granted you can't lose weight and stay healthy but you seriously want to gain that much?

    If its muscle you want to build, a agree with Alten but add, protein shakes, lots of protein. Protein is the building block of the muscle so to speak.

    Do you realize how lucky you are that you don't have a weight problem? MANY 6' 2" men would love to weigh 190 lbs.

    If you really want to add some bulk, try lifting some weights, but don't intentionally put on fat that you may be stuck with forever.
