Tips to gain weight

Diet: Get a diet chart according to your body type. The diet chart will help you pre-plan for the meals nutrition monitoring the calories required for the meal. To gain weight the calorie intake has to be higher than the calories burnt by the body.

Food Options: It is important to choose healthier food options than just eating whatever come your way. You could eat junk and store the extra calories but that will effect your heart health and general fitness. Instead choose protein rich foods like fish, eggs, lean meats, almonds, milk, dairy products etc which will help build muscles instead of storing fat.

Exercise: To increase muscle mass and burn fat it is important to exercise the body and build muscles. Exercising will increase the appetite and lifting heavy weights will show on the muscles and weight gain. Eating and not exercising will store the protein rich food as it will not get synthesised for muscle repair and building.

Avoid Junk Food: Junk food is not the way for weight gain although many people who are overweight carry the junk burden on their bellies which is not health and leads to obesity and diseases . Junk food is contains a lot of salt which promotes water retention in the body which is not healthy. Avoid junk and choose nutrient rich food options.
