3 Steps to Help You Gain Weight

gain weightThere are people who will want to put weight on at some point during their life. Some will find it easier than others because  they will have a lower metabolism which means less fat is burned. For those who have higher metabolisms or just have problems putting on the extra weight, this article is for you. In this article, there are 3 steps which you need to take to ensure that you can easily gain weight.

Step 1 - Figure out why you aren't putting on weight.

It may seem stupid, but quite a few people don't assess why they aren't putting on weight. A main reason for people not putting on weight is negative nutrition. This is a condition that reduced the amount of nutrients your body absorbs from foods and if you aren't absorbing the nutrients you won't be able to put on weight. You can eat as much as you want, but still no weight gain. Factors that cause negative nutrition are:

- Smoking
- Coffee
- Alcohol
- Fast Food

You need to cut down (or cut out if you can) on these so that you can start absorbing the much needed nutrients.

Step 2 - What you need to eat
You need to get into your head that you aren't one of these people who you read about in magazines who eat certain foods. For example, you are not a 6 foot boxer who has a highly intense physical training regime and eats a lot to pile on the muscle. If you are then fair enough, but most of you aren't so don't look at what they are eating! The only way you are going to find out what to eat is to see how many calories you are meant to be eating to put weight on and then how many calories you are actually taking in and compare the two results.

The next thing you need to consider is the fact that you don't have to make drastic changes to gain weight. Small changes to your food intake can make a huge change in your body.

Step 3 – Exercise
It is important to eat right to put on weight, but you don't want that extra weight to convert to fat do you? No! What you want is exercise so that the weight you are putting on is converted into muscle. The best way to do this is by exercising 5 times a week doing strength and cardio training to keep yourself in shape.

As long as you follow the above three steps you will be on your way to putting on weight. Just remember to reduce your negative nutrition, eat healthily (balanced diet) and exercise to convert the weight to muscle mass. These steps will help you to gain weight.
