It is the irony of life that while others struggle with weight loss, others are trying to gain weight.
Eating fatty foods and sodas can help you gain weight, but it can also destroy your health.
If you are underweight, you want to have a balanced amount of muscle mass and subcutaneous fat instead of a lot of unhealthy belly fat.
Many people of normal weight develop diabetes, heart disease, and health complications from obesity. Therefore, even if you want to gain weight, you should make sure to eat healthy foods and lead a healthy lifestyle.
Here are 3 ways to gain weight naturally:
Eat a lot of protein
Protein is the most important nutrient for weight gain. Muscle is made up of protein, and without it most of your extra calories will turn into fat. Studies have shown that by following a high-protein diet, the extra calories are converted into muscle.
However, remember that protein is a double-edged sword. They are also full of satiety, which greatly reduces hunger and appetite, making it more difficult to eat enough calories.
High-protein diets include meat, fish, eggs, many dairy products, legumes, nuts, and more. Protein supplements are expensive, but they are also effective for weight gain.
Fill up on carbohydrates
Many people try to cut back on carbohydrates and fats when trying to lose weight. However, if you want to gain weight, cutting out these food groups will make weight gain more difficult.
Make sure to add foods rich in carbohydrates and fats to your diet if your end goal is to gain weight. You need to eat plenty of protein, fats and carbohydrates at every meal.
Intermittent fasting is also a bad idea. This practice is beneficial for weight loss and improved health, but it can make it very difficult to eat enough calories to gain weight. Eat at least three full meals a day to help you reach your weight gain goals.
Use peanut butter
Peanuts are full of protein and fat. They make an ideal part of a meal for people trying to gain weight naturally. One tablespoon of peanut butter contains about 100 calories.
Peanut butter also contains vitamins such as magnesium, folic acids, B vitamins, and vitamin E. Spread a thick layer of peanut butter on whole wheat bread for a healthy breakfast and to boost your calorie intake.
