How to gain weight and muscle
Are you tired of being skinny? Do you want to gain muscle and weight but just don’t know how to it? I was skinny until my late 20’s but I changed that and I will show you how to do it too. Not only did this increase my confidence by a million folds but I really feel great and healthy.
If you think that putting on weight is hard then think again, it’s all about a mindset and taking action. If you believe it’s impossible then you need to change that belief as you will sabotage yourself thinking in this manner.
It’s important to understand that you need to eat a healthy diet to gain any weight. Eating junk food is not a good option as this contains unhealthy fats which your body does not want. Besides if you are a skinny guy you probably eat junk food anyway and it doesn’t help one bit with gaining weight as you might have noticed, this is because of your body type and that your metabolism will be too high.
You will need to eat healthy foods to gain any weight; these include protein such as lean meats, fish, poultry, and nuts. Carbohydrates such as found in fruits, whole grains and vegetables. And then you need healthy fats such as omega 3 & 6 and unsaturated fats.
If your goal is to increase your muscle mass you will need to take in more protein than usual, however if your goal is to simply gain or maintain weight you need more carbohydrates. Fat intake should always be very low as you do not gain weight from the fats. As long as you take in a substantial amount of carbohydrates you will see weight gains. You will need to take in more carbohydrates than you use per day. There are literally thousands of free calculators on the internet that you can use to determine how much carbohydrates you need to consume for your weight and height.
Food alone won’t help you gain weight, you need to exercise, specifically resistance training exercises. This means using weights. By doing resistance training your muscles will be stimulated and be forced to grow, but for this to happen you need to eat correct as I mentioned above. You will start to notice that as your start exercising that you start to get hungry a lot more and this is good news as this means your metabolism in changing and your body needs nutrients for those muscles to grow. If you can it will benefit you if you have a meal 5 to 6 times per day, this will ensure that you are never hungry and your body constantly has nutrients to use besides this is actually a healthier way of eating and your metabolism will stabilize.
You will definitely start adding lean muscle if you continue in this way – eating correct and resistance training and believing it’s possible.
