Not that you want to do it yourself, but how do people grow the size of two or more humans? The first clue is outgrowing your wardrobe. If you have been under­weight for some time, you may welcome some extra pounds.

Soon, you become satisfied with just a few outfits. Then you begin purchasing loose-fit oversize clothing. Depending on your height, this could go on as 50 pounds creep up on you.
