After checking my weight today I checked my BMI, and it's standing at 25.1 points, essentially making me overweight by medical standards. I haven't been gaining actively, it just sort of crept onto me.
I'm 173 centimetres tall and weight 75 kilograms (5' 6' and 165lbs for Americans)

What I'd like to do is to push these numbers up to around BMI 40. (so I'd need to gain roughly 45 kilograms or 100 pounds)
The question is, what can I do to make this change "permanent"? I'm afraid that after active gaining I'd revert back to my old ways and lose the pounds. Is there any way to become "properly fat" where you give up on losing the weight/can't lose it no matter what you do?

Habits. You gotta make your calorie-heavier diet a habit. Same goes for reducing exercice. You have to aim for a lifestyle that helps you gain and stay there.

Good luck!

Some easy basics:

When to eat:
Skipping breakfast or lunch is a good idea; the less frequently you are eating the slower your metabolism will get, helping you to keep weight on. Don't do this to the point of missing out on food though, your best bet is to have a big brunch, go back to eating nothing, and then just try to have a snack a little bit before dinner, then dinner, and then ideally dessert or another meal after. this kind of ties in to the second thing. It's good to be a little hungry or feeling peckish in the morning as not eating at these times will train your body to adopt a gorging habit instead of treating food as readily available.
You should eat to be full when you do eat, especially dinner and late at night. Ideally you're full after dinner, and then as some time has gone by and you're about to go to bed, make sure to fill up again. Sleeping on a full stomach is a great way to ensure weight gain as your body is quick to store it as fat.

What to eat:
Carbs are hard to argue with, but starches are even better, and you can get a lot of fat from red meats. Dairy is a great source of calories and fat but won't do the job by itself. Pretty much think to yourself "how many different ways can I eat a cheeseburger?"; anything you can come up with is a great choice to have plenty of and in large amounts. Try to make sure your two big meals are carb centric, and finish the day if you can with more carbs. If you have a sweet tooth this is easy because almost every dessert you can think of is loaded with carbs.

That being said, straight fat is better than straight sugar, for both gaining purposes and health purposes.

What to do:

you don't need to become completely sedentary and drop all physical activity. Just avoid aerobic things such as running, jumping, stairs, etc. Strength training/maintenance is a fine idea and is honestly something id encourage, you certainly won't put a dent in your calories, and it will also stimulate your appetite.

Wouldn’t the sugar help with the permanent aspect? Sugar addiction and all that.

I've been gaining for over four years and any time I go back to eating normally I rapidly lose all the weight, even when I'm completely sedentary. Maybe you'll be lucky and your metabolism will slow down early on in your gain. A lot depends on genetics. I inherited a fast metabolism and have no idea how long it will be before it slows down.

By the looks of it, I don't have a fast metabolism, since I managed to get overweight by 18.
Do you think two years would be enough to get my goal weight?

052b2 No.3243

>>3242
Definitely! 50 lbs (22 kilos) a year is 4 lbs a month (1.8 kilos). That is a slow and steady gain. Depending on how active you are, I'd aim for 3,000 to 3,500 calories a day and increase your food intake gradually as you gain.

I expect that it would sort of start snowballing and get out of hand once I get the hang of it.

Could you elaborate on your gain? What was it like to become a fatty? By the looks of it, if I put myself to it, I'll be a butterball in two years or less. What should I expect?

50lbs a year is no joke – I wouldn't call it that slow

052b2 No.3259

>>3257
Even doctors recommend a gain at that rate. 1 to 2 lbs a week is considered "safest". Most bodybuilders aim for this as well

I'm going to try it anyways.

It has been an amazing 4-5 days. Why was I never told that non-stop stuffing your face with fat and sugar is this much fun?
