Tips to Gain Weight

Sep 10, 2008
It is very much not unusual these days to hear weight loss programs, dieting schemes, how to burn fat and all the likes. But what we really do not often hear about is ways on how to gain weight. This is important as well as losing weight because not all people have the same build. While some others find it very easy to gain weight, it is also very much true for some people finding it hard to do so. It is also very much true that for some people it is easier to lose the weight than to gain them. I have always been like this. It is easier to lose weight than to gain weight if any at all.

To start with, let's try to look at the food we are normally eating everyday and write them down. This is the only way where we can make certain how many calories we are eating everyday on the average although it is pretty much obvious that not all days have the same caloric intakes. This is also the only way where we can figure out exactly how many calories to take to maintain the current weight we have. By doing this, it is pretty much easier to pin point what, where and when we should add some extra meals to initiate the weight gain.

As much as it is true above to jot down all the meals we take each day, it is also important to log the work out activities we are doing. It is not just the exercises, the weights or the reps that matters, but it also matters how we feel during an exercise because this will eventually tell us what kind of adjustments or additional to our current gain-weight program. Furthermore this will prompt you to make decisions regarding the way you want the scheme to be successful.

Always remember that we are trying to gain weight in the process that is why skipping the cardio has its own importance. There is a big chance that we are not one of the people who can burn excess fat but can build lean muscles on their bodies. Six pack abs and toned down muscles are worth the effort but chances are that we cannot do it simultaneously which means we have to do it separately. We have to concentrate on gaining weight and not losing them during the process because once we get the hang of it, losing the excess fat will come easier later on. We have that kind of build after all.

As always, plenty of rest or perhaps just enough rest plays a big role in our weight gain schemes. There is nothing more valuable than having a very good night's sleep. This is because the muscles recover from strain we put them all into while we are at rest and the reason is obvious. If you take a risk of not having to rest your muscles up properly, chances are you are going to face the consequences later on. Rest is rest and there is no short cut to doing this in order for the process to succeed.
