There is a right weight to gain weight and a wrong way to gain weight, but many people don’t know the difference of the two, which can really be bad for your health. Author of the article Kris Gunnars explains that “If you’re underweight, you want to gain a balanced amount of muscle mass and subcutaneous fat rather than a lot of unhealthy belly fat. There are plenty of normal-weight people who get type 2 diabetes, heart disease and other health problems often associated with obesity”. Which in this case is 100% true, if you constant eat junk food you’ll find your weight to increase in a unhealthy way, but also see a very odd body shape beginning to appear. If you continue eating these junk foods, your body will be more of body fat rather than muscle mass, as Kris said. Consuming more calories than your body burns is the best way of gaining weight, meaning if you plan on gaining weight slowly aim for 300-500. But if you decide you want to gain weight fast aim for that 700-1000 calorie range. Which was also what I did, as I began gaining weight I would eat dinner, which gave me maybe around 400-500 calories. But after my dinner, I would drink my shake which would give me an addition 1,250 calories. Which roughly gave me around 1,700 calories a day, if I didn’t eat a snack or something a night. Proteins are another weight gaining factor that can play a huge role in weight and muscle growth, when consuming high amounts of proteins studies have shown that it can cause extra calories to turn into muscle. This can help those of you who dislike your muscle size and are looking for that way to successfully get bigger all around.
