Losing weight is a common problem among a lot of people globally, and there are millions of posts suggesting how to go about it. Gaining weight on the other hand, isn’t the most popular challenge out there, but believe me, it is real for some, and unlike losing weight, they have no idea how to go about it.
If you’re looking to add a few extra pounds, here’s exactly what you need to do…
EAT HEAVY DINNER
Usually, if you’re trying to shed some pounds, it’s advised that you eat little at night, but if it’s the opposite effect you’re looking to create on yourself, then, eating heavy is the way to go. The more you eat, the more your body has enough calories to store up, which equals more weight.
DRINK LESS WATER
Drinking lots of water during meals allow for you to get full quicker, because it adds extra content to your stomach. However, if it’s weight you want to gain, you have to eat more, which means drinking less so you have more space for food in your stomach.
REDUCE PHYSICAL ACTIVITY
If you do a lot of strenuous work, you have to put an end to that if you truly want to look heavier than you do already. Engaging in less physical activity allows for your body to store up more calories, which it otherwise, would have burned with more physical activity, like exercising, of engaging in tough work.
EAT MORE CALORIE- DENSE MEALS
To gain weight, the way to go also includes eating more calorie dense meals. You don’t necessarily have to eat too much, just put focus on food that contains a lot of calories and carbohydrates.
Quite simple, to gain weight you need to increase your calories intake. Just like taking food high in calorie content you should also eat often. 5 – 6 times per day could certainly help you gain the needed weight.
Remember it’s not just any food, but calorie-dense meals.
To gain weight, you only need to think about those things you’ve seen people trying to lose weight do, and then do the opposite of them.
