Protein Power Mix – Best Foods For Weight Gain
Posted by on
(THP) For many, gaining weight in a reasonable amount of time is irritating. If you are a naturally thin ectomorph or the overactive athlete that needs to gain weight in order to “make weight,” then these healthy calorie foods can help you gain weight the safe and effective way.
The most important thing to keep in mind when trying to gain weight is that you have got to eat healthy, no short cuts. There are hundreds of protein shakes and other weight gaining supplements that can help, but they really shouldn't be the sole supplement to help you gain weight. A diet high in natural proteins, calcium, vitamin D, and fish oil can make all the difference. Protein shakes and other supplements will make great supplements, but not meal replacements. My best solution for gaining weight was a diet low in saturated fats and high in monosaturated fats. So cook with extra virgin olive oil, canola oil, and almond oil to add in more healthy calories for your meals.
Understand that to reach your goal weight, you must be eating enough calories per day that is for your specific frame. Estimate, not obsess, over the calories you need according to the Body Mass Index system.
GAIN WEIGHT FOODIES
Proteins & Omega 3: Aim to eat 4-6 meals per day, each having the required protein serving. Protein shakes are okay, especially for the athlete that needs to replenish after a heavy workout, but aim to eat snacks that are high in natural proteins. This includes nuts, milk & eggs, pork, fish, and chicken. Try to reduce fried foods and eat lean meats cooked in olive oil or canola. Dress up your foods and naturally add in more calories by adding olive oil to your seeds and nuts as well. Keep in mind that foods high in protein like nuts are also a good source of omega 3.
Lean Protein is a quality protein whey drink that builds muscle and weight gain.
Milk: They never lied when they said milk does a body good. The benefits of drinking at least 3 glasses a day can help even the most underweight person gain by leaps and bounds. Goat’s milk best to consume because the health benefits are exceptional.
Fresh Fruits: Fruits can be light foods but can help you gain weight faster if you use them in smoothies. Add in your favorite fruit and blend up smoothies with all egg whites (bought from store), and a tablespoon of fiber (wheat germ), and a tablespoon of flaxseed or fish oil to get the omega 3 benefits.
