So I recently started dance, and I've lost a ton of weight (15 lbs.) I'm way toooo skinny and my teacher are telling me to gain weight. Problem: I already eat like 8000 caloreis a day. I LOVE EATING! So any help would be super nice! Thanks

If you are LITERALLY eating 8,000 calories a day and LOSING weight, you need to be seen by a doctor, because there is a massive problem with your body. If you're reasonably healthy, there's no way that that's possible.

Meh, it's definitely possible. When my little brother was rowing for the crew team (one of the best in the nation), he lost weight if he ate anything below 8,000 calories per day. We couldn't keep enough food in the house. Granted, he was a 6'0" dude. I don't know the OP - maybe she is, too :]

My brother plays a bunch of sports and he also has a super hard time gaining weight. He is easily eating like 3000 calories a day and he is still losing weight.

Here are some things he eats to try and gain weight.
1. Peanut Butter and Banana milkshake. Use whole milk.
2. Powerbars or protein bars which are high in calories. ( he eats like 5 in a day)
3. He also drinks a bunch of whole fat milk, yogurt and cheese.
