How To Gain Weight?


- Advertisment -spot_img

We define being underweight as having a body mass index (BMI) below 18.5. It’s much more common in women or young girls. It considers a body mass index range between 18.5 and 24.9 as healthy. It’s a body-weight to height relationship. As obesity is a disease, staying underweight isn’t healthier either. If you are under-weighted, I will tell you how to gain weight easily and quickly.

Why am I underweight?

Lets answer this question by outlining the things that are making you not gaining any weight. These factors can be

  • High metabolism rate 
    • If a person has a high metabolism, they may not gain much weight even when eating high-energy foods.
  • Several Medical conditions
  • Eating disorders
    • This includes anorexia nervosa, a serious mental disorder.
  • Thyroid problems
    • Having an overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism) can boost metabolism and cause unhealthy weight loss.

Foods for quick weight gain

Here are some energy-dense foods perfect for gaining weight:

  • Nuts
    • Almonds, walnuts, macadamia nuts, peanuts, etc.
  • Dried fruit
    • Raisins, dates, prunes and others.
  • High-fat dairy
    • Whole milk, full-fat yogurt, cheese, cream
  • Fats and oils
    • Extra virgin olive oil and avocado oil.
  • Homemade Protein Smoothies
    • Chocolate, banana, Vanilla berry shake, Chocolate hazelnut shake, Caramel apple shake.
  • Milk is being used as a weight-gainer or muscle builder for decades
    • It provides a good balance of proteins, carbs and fats and is a good source of calcium, other vitamins and minerals.
  • Red meat
    • It is probably one of the best muscle-building foods available. For example, steak contains around 3 grams of leucine per 6 ounces (170 grams). Leucine is the key amino acid your body needs to stimulate muscle protein synthesis and add new muscle tissue.
  • Breads contain carbohydrates
    • They are a good source to help you gain weight.
  • Nature loads avocados with healthy fats
    • Unlike other whole fruits, avocados are fairly calorie dense and therefore a great food to help you gain weight.
