Are you one of those that have being struggling to add weight?
Are you tired of being skinny? Then this article is for you. Compiled here are ways for you to add weight naturally without any side effects.
Carbs will help you put on weight, but it won’t be muscle: pasta, brown rice, wheat bread, oatmeal, etc. will help you put on weight, but a lot of that weight will be fat. Every meal should have vegetables and fruit. If you just eat protein, your body will resort to using it for energy rather than building muscle. Unless you’re eating tons of good fats, good carbs (fruits and veggies), and protein, you won’t be gaining weight.
Sleep: You need to be getting 8-9 hours of sleep every night for maximum gains. Your body is doing nothing but lying there and building muscle while you’re sleeping. If you are only getting 6 hours or less, you’re not going to get all the benefits of your exercising and diet.
Eat meat: Meat contains the proteins necessary for building muscle, and it contains calories, so make sure you eat meat. Fish, seafood, and red meat are all great places not only for calories, but also for nutrients and fatty acids. Remember to keep the balance by throwing in some vegetables to your meals. There needs to be a balance. Fruits and vegetables are important to your body, health, and happiness.
Eggs: Are fantastic sources of vitamins, minerals, and calories. One normal egg contains 100 calories, so if you can pack 6-12 of them a day, you will be well on your way to giving your body what it needs. A very common myth is that eggs contain cholesterol, therefore they will clog your arteries, and kill your hurt. Eggs are healthy, and filled with nutrients, so eat them as much as you want. If you want to make sure your blood levels stay good, take a blood test before and after you start eating them. But remember that making big changes in your diet may mean that even if your cholesterol goes up, it may not be the eggs that are the problem.
Let your muscles rest: Never exercise the same muscle two days in a row. Your muscles get rebuilt (larger) during your days off, so never exercise the same muscle before it’s ready. Try and wait for at least 48 hours before you hit the same muscle again
Eat Often: When you eat something every few hours you have a constant flow of nutrition to your muscles. This will help you to gain muscle mass fast. Your body will get the message, there is enough food. No worries. If you wake up in the middle of the night, take the opportunity to have a snack. Prepare a protein shake before you go to sleep, if you don’t happen to wake up just have it for breakfast.
Eat Carbohydrates: If you want to gain weight, you will have to compromise, so fruits, potatoes, yams, rice, quinoa, and all those sources of carbs are fair game. Stay away from the low-nutrient, “junk” carbohydrates such as pasta, white rice, cakes, cookies, and so on. They’ll make you fat, not fit.
Drink Your Food: An easy way to get more calories into your diet is to blend your food. For example, a smoothie with two bananas, two raw eggs, and some protein powder can easily be 600 calories or more. You can take this further (and dirtier) by throwing in some oats, peanut butter, coconut oil, or even flax seed oil into that smoothie. It’s all about calories if you want to get those pounds up.
Eat More Than You Need: The art of gaining weight and muscle is stuffing yourself with food (high-quality food). It means getting your body used to more food than it is. Your body doesn’t want to gain weight, because that means change, and anything having to do with change will be resisted. It will be hard to eat more than you need. It may be uncomfortable, but if you want more muscle and more weight, it can easily be done.
Don’t drink water before meals: This can fill your stomach and make it harder to get in enough calories.
Drink milk: Drinking whole milk to quench thirst is a simple way to get in more high-quality protein
