Gain Weight Quick Diet –
How To Gain Weight Fast

gain weight quickIf you are trying to gain weight quick we can tell you how to do it fast.

Most of us know how hard it can be to lose weight. But some people actually can have trouble gaining weight.

This can often be due to having a small boned frame or having a very fast metabolism.

If you are one of those people we have some gaining weight diet advice for you below.

Eat Eat And Eat

In order to gain weight quick on a skinny frame you have to increase the amount of food you eat. To start gaining weight you should increase you daily calorie intake by at least 500.
If you do this you can gain at least 2 pounds per week. If you want to gain faster then you simply have to eat even more.

If you are not used to counting calories go here and keep track of at least two days of what you normally eat now. Write down what you eat and how many calories you normally eat.

Then try adding 500 calories a day more to start your weight gain diet.

 Gain Weight Quick Diet Secret

One thing you can do it go to a health food store and buy special protein powders like body builder’s do. These protein powders have more calories plus added vitamins and minerals. Body builders use them tobulk up.”

Mix up a drink or two each day following the instructions on the container and you will add quite a few  more calories to your diet each day. (look at the protein powder labels. if you have to choose between different protein powders but not sure which one, choose the one highest in calories)

This is an easy way to get the extra calories if you are the type  of person who does not have a big appetite.

How Do I Know This?

Because this is exactly the same problem I had when I was  a teen. I was very thin and wanted to gain weight quick too, so I used protein powders to put on the pounds. It took
about 1-2 weeks  of drinking these drinks and eating a bit more and I put on weight pretty quick.

I don’t recommend drinking or eating too much each day because when you put on weight to fast you can end up with stretch marks on your skin (which will likely never go away)

Again, how do I know this? Through experience. I drank way too many drinks to fast and gained too much weight too fast. And I still have those stretch marks on my legs to prove it.

So, I can’t tell you strongly enough, not to gain weight too fast! I know this sounds strange since this page is about gaining weight fast, but it would be irresponsible of me to not at least warn you!

No matter what size or weight you are now, simply increase your calories by 500 each day and you will gain at least 8-10 pounds in a month.

Here are the best foods to add more calories. They are healthy foods which is why I am including them.

Include These Foods

These foods have more fat content which will help with weight gain, however be aware that too much fat in your diet is not necessarily a good thing. You should eat
plenty of low fat foods too, like salads with low fat dressings and perhaps alternate drinking full fat milk with 1 or 2% so that you don’t get an overload of fat.
Even if you are trying to gain weight quick you still want to be healthy!

  • full fat milk
  • all kinds of nuts and dried fruit. You can add to your cereal in the morning or to any salad.
  • cheeses, sour cream and cream soups.
  • heavy grain bread like pumpernickel or everything bagels.
  • granola cereal
  • bran or other muffins
  • avocado
  • potatoes, squash
  • ice cream
  • yogurt
  • peanut butter
  • milkshakes
  • cookies
  • cakes
  • McDonald’s or other fast food (try eating a meal there now and then just because the food WILL help you gain)

 

Note:

  • please don’t make all your meals there though (there is a movie on
    a guy who ate all his meals at McDonald’s for a month or something and when the doctor did his blood tests, he was very unhealthy from eating such high fat food all the time. (he had high cholesterol levels way out through the roof etc) You can see the movie here if you want.

Gain Weight Fast Tip

Sprinkle things like raisins, nuts, seeds, flax or other caloric add-on foods in order to increase calories in each meal.

In summary, it really is much easier to gain weight then lose it. All you must do is eat more. But if you have a low appetite then try adding the protein powder shakes to your meals but just eat the way
you always do and you will gain weight quick anyway.

Muscle Gain Diet Plan

muscle gain diet planThis page will explain a bit about building muscle with diet and give you a one day sample of a muscle gain diet plan.

A low carb diet has always been considered the right type of diet for building muscles. However, you don’t want to eliminate all carbs.

Your body needs some carbohydrates for fuel. You will need to eat enough carbs to be able to function properly and fuel your workouts.

The carbs will give you fuel but it will be the protein from foods you eat that builds muscle. When you work out, muscle fiber gets broken down and protein is what helps rebuild it.

  • People who workout should eat 1.2 to 2 grams of protein per pound of body weight each day.

A good example of a diet which was designed to build muscle is the anabolic diet. It is a low- carb diet that will help you gain muscle.

The way this muscle gain diet plan works is by restricting your carbohydrate intake during the week and eating an overload of carbs on the weekends.

The idea behind this diet is that as you follow along it will boost testosterone levels, insulin levels and growth hormone which will contribute to larger muscle gain.

 

Muscle Gain Diet Plan Tips

  • Eat good sources of carbs and protein. The carbohydrate foods you choose should be high in fiber, vitamins and nutrients.
  • Some of your choices should be non-starch vegetables, low sugar fruit, wheat bran, oat bran, flax seeds and high fiber cereals.
  • Your protein choices should be lean and low in fat. Such foods as lean red meat, chicken, turkey, eggs, fish, beans, legumes, low fat dairy and tofu.
  • You can also supplement your diet with protein powders. By eating more protein than carbs your body will begin to build muscles more quickly.
  • One of the things that is especially important when you follow a low carb diet is to be sure that you get plenty of hydration. (by drinking lots of water)

When you work out your body will burn glycogen (glycogen is a form of carb that is stored in your liver and in your muscles for energy ) which consists of a lot of water. This in turn leads to excessive urination and you can gain weight. Therefore since muscles contain quite a lot of water it’s important that you drink plenty of water during and after your workouts so that dehydration doesn’t occur.

  • It’s recommended that women drink about 2 liters of water a day and men around 3 liters.

After a rigorous workout (and in order to gain muscle fastest ) it’s important to take advantage of nutrients. After a workout your muscles are similar to a sponge and they want and need nutrition to grow. You should eat protein and carbs within one hour of a workout so that the protein and carb can repair and help your muscles grow huge.

  • Have a serving of whey protein as it is easily digestible. In order to get the protein into your muscle cells quicker add a high glycemic carbohydrate to the mix.

For example you could add some fruit juice or one tablespoon of honey. To make a proper combination add some milk and honey or fruit juice to a shaker of whey protein and drink this right after a weight lifting session.

General Guidelines for a Muscle Building Meal Plan

  • Six to eleven servings of grain bread, cereal, rice, or pasta every day
  • Two to four servings of fruit and three to five servings of vegetables every day.
  • Two to three servings of low-fat dairy products like milk, cheese and yogurt.
  • Two to three servings of lean poultry, meat, fish, eggs, nuts, meat or beans per day.

Below is a sample muscle building meal plan for a man that is 175-200 pounds.

If you weigh more and are trying to gain and build muscle then you can eat bigger portions. If you are a smaller guy and the following plan seems to be too much food then just eat less.

Either way, the  point  is that you want to increase muscle without the fat, so eating things such as egg whites (the whites don’t contain the fat, it is the yolks that do) then you will still get protein without fat.

Muscle Gain Diet Plan

Breakfast

2 cups oatmeal (eat the original plain oats instead of the kind that comes in varieties with added sugar etc)

1 cup egg whites

3 eggs

1 tbsp of peanut butter (the kind you get in a health food store which is natural is best)

Snack about mid morning

2 1/2 cups plain cottage cheese (low-fat variety)

1 cup berry of choice (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries)

Lunch

2 slices of whole grain bread (check labels for fat content when you buy)

7-8 oz turkey breast from the deli (best not to buy the prepackaged type )

2-3 cups of spinach or as much as you desire

½ large tomato

mustard for flavor (as much as you want)

1 small sweet potato

Midday snack

1 banana

4 strawberries

1 scoop whey isolate protein of choice (good for muscle building, check your local health food store)

Dinner

6-8 oz pork chop with visible fat cut off

1/2 acorn or other squash mashed with a some butter

steamed mixed vegetables

Final snack

8 oz nonfat plain yogurt with berries of choice

1 tbsp peanut butter

12 almonds or other other high protein nuts

There are many books you can get through amazon.com that will help you learn more about building muscle and a muscle gain diet plan.

1800 Calorie Diet Plan

 

1800 calorie diet planAn 1800 calorie diet plan can be one of two things depending on who you are.

It can be used to:

1. help you maintain a current weight
2. be used to lose weight if you are very overweight.

 

It does not restrict calories really low like a 1200 calorie diet plan would but it can still be used to lose weight depending on how much you weight now.

In order to know if the 1800 calorie diet is right for you, you will need to know your current weight. Once you have your current weight you have to decide on how much you WANT to weigh.

Then you should keep a food journal for one week. Write down everything you eat each day for a week. Then figure out how many calories you eat each day.
Total the calories for each day then add all the calories for each day together and divide that by 7 (for the week)

The number you come up with tells you how many calories each day on average you are eating now.

If you find you have been eating 2300 calories a day or more, the 1800 calorie diet can help you lose at least 1 pound per week  because you will be eating 500 calories a day less than you used to before. (500 x 7 = 3500 calories)  3500 calories = one pound of weight.  You can see that if you eat 1000 calories less a day you would lose 2 pounds a week.

You could lose weight more than this depending on how many calories you were eating before and how much you currently weight.

If you are looking to maintain a current weight but just want a healthy sample 1800 calorie diet this one could be right for you too.

The following 1800 calorie diet plan is a sensible one day sample plan that includes healthy foods.

1600 calorie diet plan

delicious

It is only a one week 1600 calorie diet plan sample but remember you can always replace any food with another in order to make this your own diet. It’s a good idea to be able to switch up foods just in case there is a food or two in the diet that you don’t like or don’t want to eat. Or maybe you happen to be allergic to a certain food or food group.

Whatever the reason, with 1600 calorie diet plans or any other diet, having the option to trade foods keeps your diet from being boring. It also keeps you from feeling too regimented or disciplined, which is one reason many people quit a diet.

To make specific food changes to the 1600 calorie diet plan you can easily check the 100 calorie cheat sheet that lets you switch one food for another anytime you like. Or if you want a little more in depth information on nutritional counts of given foods or need information on all calories try this link.
