Try asking people how to gain weight and you’ll likely see some bewildered faces staring back at you. For the majority of people, hearing that question is akin to hearing the questions, “How do I stub my toe?” or “How do I run out of gas?”
Overall, this is not a negative thing; especially with the Center for Disease Control predicting that obesity (which is already considered an epidemic among US youth) will soon become the number one preventable killer in the US, overtaking cigarette smoking. Yet lost within this maze, and haze, of weight-loss drive are naturally thin people who face a different challenge: they want to gain weight; not lose it.
You must develop a strategy to gain weight that works and stop doing what doesn’t work. Sounds simple doesn’t it?
Finding the right strategy and the will to stick with it until that strategy is perfected for you is what separates the champions in life.
You should know every pound you gain. The only way to do this is to keep track (preferably weekly) of how much you weigh. Doing this will help you realize what works for you and what doesn’t, and will help you gauge your progress in the future.
Skinny people are not eating right and enough. By that, it means that they are not eating foods that would help them to gain weight. Protein is critical in adding extra weight but many folks do not get enough protein intake. This is where things go awry. So how can they expect to gain weight quickly or for that matter, any significant weight improvement at all? It is important to load more on protein, and less on simple carbs. Read on for specific weight-gain diet foods.
The best way to gain weight is to eat foods that promote a healthy diet and to also engage in regular strength training to build muscle. Most health professionals recommend that you aim to gain about one pound each week. Slow weight gain is recommended in order to avoid too much body fat. Another point to remember is that the amount of weight you gain will depend on your calorie intake.
Design your weight gain program around a healthy diet with lots of fruit, vegetables, whole grains, fish and a variety of other healthy foods. Don’t be tempted to stuff yourself with fast food diets because they may bring other problems such as higher blood cholesterol and heart disease.
Your aim is to progressively overload your muscles with increasing amounts of weight from one workout session to the next. You see, muscle hypertrophy (= muscle growth) is a direct response to a muscle being exerted beyond it’s current threshold. It needs to be given a reason to grow.
Training is not the most important aspect of bodybuilding, ask any bodybuilder that. It’s your diet plan which is the most important, especially for hardgainers. This does not mean that you should just eat, eat, eat… Oh no, do that and your just going to gain excess fat
