So my doctor suggested that I put on a few pounds (like maybe 5) because my weight always flucatates between like 95-105 pounds, which is very slow. However, I work really hard to have a flat stomach (somewhat concaved though because I use to have an eating disorder). I am kind of nervous though. I am eating like 1,700 calories atm. Should I eat 2,000 calories? Im only 5'1 lol.
For exercise, I do about 30 minutes of pilates and 40 minutes of yoga daily. So I am definitely trying to stay fit, lean, flexible, and happy. I eat really well too. Like 5 fruits a day, 4 or 5 vegetables a day. Protein shakes almost everyday (with whey protein). I'll have apple and peanut butter, etc. But, the main reason I am posting is because I definitely do not want to lose the "flatness" of my stomach. Do you guys think Ill be okay? Thanks :)
Ps. I hope everyone is having a good day wherever they are in the world!!

I would recommend checking out some books by Michael Matthew and reading through his series for women or men if you want to since that would help you gain muscle weight.
He really knows what he's talking about and is one of the few fitness guys I trust. I'd recommend the shredded chef and the thinner, leaner, stronger and or the bigger, leaner, stronger series.
Because of the bigger, leaner, stronger series I'm 145-150lbs pure muscle, with single digit body fat and I have a flat stomach. Though I've got much bigger goals in mind, that's just were I'm at now.
The books will have the answers you seek, you can even talk to him personally on Facebook or his website if you have any questions.0
