Not to worry. This article was written to treat your particular problem. In this article we’re going to examine
how to gain weight safely and easily. You may not realise this, but there are a lot of people who
would love to have your problem.
Overweight people would kill to have a high metabolism because it would mean that they could drop weight faster.
You have the opposite problem, but it’s not that difficult to fix.
How to Gain Weight with Proper Nutrition
Your diet is your number one obstacle when it comes to gaining weight. You want to pack on some pounds, but you
definitely don’t want most of it to be in the form of unsightly flab, right?
Instead, you want to look like a well-muscled, vigorous man.
Your first step is to eat plenty of protein. Protein is an essential building block for gaining muscle. Since
muscle weighs more than fat, you have to gain less of it to achieve the same weight as the same amount of fat.
The typical person burns about 2500 calories per day doing little or nothing. That’s how many calories you need
just to survive. Therefore, if you want to gain weight, you’re going to have to consume at least 3500 calories per
day. If you have a high metabolism, you might have to consume even more than that.
However, you don’t necessarily want those calories to be fat calories. Instead, you want those calories to
consist of mainly protein and carbohydrates. This means foods like potatoes, lean meat, poultry, nuts, legumes,
vegetables and low-fat dairy products should be high on your shopping list.
Ideally, you should be eating 5-6 meals per day. This will give your body a steady stream of calories, vitamins
and minerals so that you can put on healthy muscle-weight, rather than flabby-fat weight.
How to Gain Weight with Resistance Exercises
Your second step is to work your muscles so that you create more muscle mass, and cut out the excess fat.
Resistance (or weight) training is hard work, but it’s necessary for gaining weight.
You should be working out at least 3 times per week, for at least 30 minutes per day. Make sure that when you’re
working out, that you work HARD. Don’t take it easy and hope that your workout is going to be effective. Let me
asure you, it won’t be.
Gaining weight isn’t always easy. However, it is possible and you are capable of it if you put the tips in this
article to good use.
