Whether you’re underweight or just tired of being the skinny friend, you wanting to gain weight for yourself is valid and nobody should tell you otherwise. If you want weight gain, work hard towards it and you’ll get the weight you want. Forget everyone and their opinions. Here are 4 guaranteed ways to get the weight you want.
1. Eat a lot
And I mean a lot! I know it’s really hard for some skinny people to make sure they eat at by certain times daily. It’s easy for you to eat breakfast, lunch, supper and snacks in between them on one day and the next day, you even forget that you have to eat until the hunger pangs become hard to bear. This time you need to make the conscious effort to eat; 3 times a day, eat snacks between them too so by the end of the day you’ve eaten 6 times or more. However you plan on making this work, you need to do it. Make sure you’re eating balanced meals though, not always junk food.
2. Increase your protein intake
Protein is the building block for most of your entire body, especially your lean mass. As Ghanaians, we tend to eat more carbs than protein but protein heavily supports muscle growth. Foods high in protein include eggs, meats, fish, nuts, and legumes like beans.
3. Drink high-calorie smoothies or shakes
If you’re having trouble with eating many times during the day, you may want to get shakes that are high in calories. They are often packed with more vitamins and minerals and won’t make you feel bloated. A lot of people like banana smoothies because they are great when it comes to calories. There are around 100 calories in a medium sized banana.
4. Be consistent
You can’t eat well one week and keep forgetting the next week. The weight you want won’t come. You need to try to stay consistent. If you need to set alarms to eat, do it. If you have to prepare the type of food that contains the high amount of calories you want, prepare it. Keep pushing yourself and you’ll get the results you want.
