How To Gain Healthy Weight

By Benjamin Bickett

The majority of health magazines and fitness pretend to keep their focus more on weight loss as opposed to weight gain. Although the need and desire for weight loss seems to overshadow the need or desire for weight gain, it is still a pressing health question. Regardless, there is a right way to gain weight safely.

A dietician or nutritionist might be a good start, and can help you plan a safe diet to gain the weight you want safely. If you plan to gain the weight by yourself, be sure to include a balanced diet and include heavy carbohydrates.

Eating lean meat is a good source of protein. Also, be sure to include calcium in your diet. It is important to remember you are trying to gain more muscle weight than fat so make sure that the foods you choose to eat are nutritious ones that won’t simply make you fat. Sweets and fried foods aren’t recommended as a part of this plan.

While cardio is important to any work out, taking some of the time you spend in cardio and adding it to your weight lifting time is a good way to help build more muscle instead of toning and burning fat. However, remember cardio is still important in you workout.

It is important to remember when developing your workout plan to pick your exercises according to the build you want. Your workout can determine whether your muscles are lean or bulky. Ladies generally favor the long and lean build. Many men forget about this, thinking that women typically seek out more bulky guys. This simply isn’t the case so don’t feel the need to overdo things.

Be careful about what exercises you choose. Be sure to choose ones that will improve your build. For example, swimming helps build broad shoulders and pilates will give you a long lean build. Don’t find that you didn’t get the look that you wanted because you performed the wrong activity.

And extreme or excessive workout can be counterproductive. Try keeping your workout steady and consistent.
