It’s has become the trend on how to lose weight than to gain weight. Most people opt to lose weight. But there are some instances that gaining weight is being desired. So for those people who want to put in some extra pounds, here are some tips that you can try if you want to gain that extra pounds:
OPT FOR CALORIE-DENSE FOODS
Eat a food that is jam-packed with calories and nutrients in a small serving. That is why dieticians call it calorie-dense. They are loaded with calories, even with a small serving. And where there are calories, there is surely a weight gain.
- BANANA AND NUT BUTTER
Bananas are a rich source of natural sugars and starchy carbohydrates, and nut butter will provide the fats and protein. The nut butter alone can contain 100 calories.
- OATMEAL AND PEANUT BUTTER
Oatmeal contains complex carbohydrates and peanut butter will provide the fats and protein that you need. Again, the peanut butter contains whopping 100 calories.
- POTATOES AND SALMON
You can try baked salmon with potatoes as a side dish. Salmon is a great source of lean protein (which means it’s healthy) and potato is a starchy vegetable that contains 159 calories.
- BUTTERED CORN
Corn is also a starchy vegetable which contains 156 calories per cup. The butter provides fats and protein and helps you to digest the corn easily.
Yes, working out serves two purposes, to lose weight, and to gain weight. Working out and sweating it out help you to lose weight because you are burning out fats. But remember certain workout helps you build muscle volume. An added muscle volume means an added weight.
DRINK YOUR SNACKS
If you can’t just take foods in one sitting, reserve some for a snack. If you have a small appetite, even a volume of water with zero calories counts. If you want to gain weight, make sure that every bite and every sip are loaded with calories. So instead of water, opt for a rich cream-based smoothie.
Use nut butter and whole milk in your smoothie.
And finally, you have to be patient. Every people have different metabolic rates, others burn calories faster than the others. Following these tips will help you gain weight fast and safe, but the results won’t happen overnight. You have to follow this regimen on a daily basis for you to achieve fast results.
