hi, what's my words about gaining weight which i am discussing with you. You look thin and what to gain weight? Well, it is lot more complicated than it seems to be. You canít just eat everything that comes your way and gain weight. There are several Dos and Doníts of gaining body weight. Letís have a look at the most efficient Dos and Doníts that can let you gain body weight as soon as possible.
First of all you must know that whether your dietary plans is right for you or not. To gain weight, the basic formula is to consume more calories than you consume normally. So, start consuming more calories than you burn. Approximate daily caloric requirement of a healthy male (one who performs light activity) is 2200, where a healthy female consumes as much as 900 calories. You must consume around 1000 extra calories per day to gain less than half a kilo a week. For this, you must eat at least five meals per day. Although, actual caloric requirement varies from one person to another, depending on their height, weight, activity level and their bodyís metabolic rate, the amount of extra calories can be taken 1000 for all (for a start).
Eat Healthy food - Eat milk products and non-vegetable foods. Eat eggs over vegetables as a meal. Consume high protein content foods items and foods with high starch content, such as potatoes, rice and tapioca.
Consume Protein -Increase your protein intake. Your body needs a lot of protein to build new muscle. But since most of the calories for weight gain come from carbohydrates and fats, do not replace them with protein. You should consume at least 1 gram of quality protein per pound of body weight.
Add more snacks to your meal Ė Cheese sticks, milk shakes, muffins, dried fruits, yoghurt are the food items which are full of protein. So, rather than munching on junk food try to eat these snacks as much as you can per day. Nuts are the best snacks to increase body weight. So, you better add nuts to your daily diet.
