Foods For Weight Gain – The Healthy Twist

Foods For Weight Gain – The Healthy Twist


“You are what you eat!” People are obsessed with the idea that they need to lose weight so they too have a sculpted figure, while others are struggling hard to become healthier and gain more pounds on their skinny frame? Aren’t typically bizarre questions a total turn-off? Well, let’s do it the healthy way!

There are people whose metabolism rate is comparatively faster as compared to others who are lean, perhaps being bullied in schools too.

Yes, chugging soda and binging on fries and other calorie laden snacks will definitely see your weight climb but you are not really getting the nutrients that your body needs.

For those who want to gain weight the healthy way, be sure to include these foods to your diet but watch your calorie intake.

  1. Oats.

    This morning meal can give you 17 grams of protein per 100 grams of serving. Protein is necessary for muscle development and repair which your body needs.
    Add to this the fact that oats are good sources of fiber and you’ll soon be seeing more pounds added to you minus the calories. The fiber in oats helps clean your digestive system which means that you won’t suffer from bloat.
  2. Real nut butters.

    For those who want to gain weight, you should include butter in your diet. Aside from tasting good, butter contains 81 grams of fat per 100 grams. Just make sure that you don’t eat too much, as a large amount of the fats present are saturated fat which can clog your arteries taking a root to heart problems like stroke and heart attack.
  4. Noodles.

    Although there are some people who believe that eating noodles can have adverse effects on your health, it is still useful for those who are trying to gain weight because of the carbohydrates and calories present.
    Just toss in some colorful vegetables and boneless chicken cubes to pack in more calories and nutrients to help add to your current weight.
  5. Whole fat milk.

    Dieticians recommend that you swap skimmed milk with whole milk as the latter contains more fat which you need if you plan on adding more weight and putting on pounds.
    When the fat of the milk is retained there will be rich in vitamins and minerals. Whole milk contains plenty of vitamin A and D which are essential for your growth.
  6. Chicken.
    Weightlifters, athletes, and fitness buffs often include chicken in their meals as it is not only delish but can add up to 25 grams of protein per 100 grams to your daily intake.
    These are just a few healthy foods that will go well with your weight gain plan. You got to be consistent before you see those additional pounds in the weighing scale, so keep at it until you see a slight improvement in your current weight.
