What are some fatty foods that will help you gain weight FAST?
My family has recently had a few colds in a row and I lost 5kg... and after having five teeth removed I'm on a liquid diet for a few days so I will probably lose a few more. Once I can eat properly again I want to get some of the weight back.
What are some very fatty foods that will help me pack on the weight?
Avocados are very fatty... and healthy! Perfect food for gaining weight in a healthy manner.
If you're wanting to put on weight, be sure it's doing it in a healthy manner. Avocados and nuts are the healthiest way to go about it, most certainly. They have the right kind of fats that nourish the brain while adding fuel and fat the the body.
Well at the moment I'm breastfeeding and loosing too much weight. A couple more pounds and I'll be considered underweight (on paper, but in reality I'm still healthy looking) I talked to my doctor about this and he said the body gains weight from starch. Apparently it's a misconception that the body gains fat from eating fat. I was eating cheese and putting butter all over things and it wasn't helping. So now I'm upping my starch intake. As an Italian married to a Korean I already have my fair share of pasta and rice but I've been making it a point to eat even more of these. I hope this helps you. It's nice to know someone else is trying to gain weight. Most people are the opposite and don't want to hear it.
The body has an interesting mechanism for protecting itself. When you have lost weight due to ill health or not being able to eat the mechanism to protect the body will from starvation kicks into action. Once back to normal every calorie that goes into your body will be stored and your body will automatically begin to gain weight.
My husband had a very bad flue with complications last winter. He lost 25 pounds, which he didn't have to loose. He has since gained it all back with a bit extra.
I always gain weight when I eat lots of chocolate:)
I agree. WryLilt, once you're able to eat normally again, your body will automatically store those calories and you'll be back to your normal weight in no time. Please DO NOT wreck your health further by eating unhealthy foods simply to gain weight!
I would maybe not do fatty foods but high protein foods and get some good workouts in (to build your strength back up also). Also, keep in mind the types of fats. If you want to eat high fat to gain some weight, don't use it as an excuse to overload on transfats or other unhealthy fats.
Eat good fats, like nuts, avocados, or saute foods in extra light virgin coconut oil which is loaded with good things for your body. All of these are still high fat, but better for your heart/body.
I agree, weight gain from fatty foods is not going to be healthy, since calories from fats are stored as fat. Consuming complex carbs consistantly throughout the day will keep out of a cataboic(muscle wasting) state. Protein and exercise= way to go.
Interesting to here this question as the majority of people is fighting to loose their weight. Charge up your body with enough carbohydrates, as it is the best way to add some extra weight. Dried fruits, cheese, nuts, peanut butter can all do the job. But in my opinion if you want to put some weight in a healthy manner, you can have a consultation with a nutritionist. A nutritionist can excatly calculate how many calories your body needs every day and it is extremely important for those who wants to gain weight. A nutritionist will be able to know how many calories you have to intake inorder to gain the appropriate weight. I think this the right way to gain weight. The process can be a little slower but healthy.
Fried potatoes would be a great start, as you not only get the fat, but loads of starch and/or complex carbohydrates. Plus, outside of the lack of vitamin A (which you would get back if you use ketchup) and protein, it is a very well-balanced food full of nutrients; eat 'em up!
Weight lifters, heavy weighters, football players all have a proven method to gain weight fast. It might not be appetizing though.
Drink whole milk. You will pack on a few pounds a week or more. it's extremely fatty and loaded with protein, it is an absolutely surefire way to gain weight.
A second option is to drink liquid eggs! Probably disgusting. The reason they are not cooked is so that you can eat more at once. A cooked egg gets fluffy and limits the amount you can gorge on. Yuck if you ask me.
Definitely do the whole milk, it does work.
Eggs are great! Not sure I agree with whole milk. Whole milk will help you gain weight for sure, but I don't drink it due to it's tremendous fat content. That's just me though; if you're not looking for just lean muscle gain, then it's probably okay.
Now, I am thinking I must be some sort of expert on this type of thing....Hmmm, cheesecake, pecan pie ,hot fudge sundaes and bacon cheeseburgers, they all do the trick by golly and I speak from experience! LOL Just kidding! These are not healthy foods. Nuts, cheese and peanut butter would be much wiser choices!
The best way to "fatten" up is to intake more sugars and carbohydrates. Our bodies are actually fairly good at processing fats, but sugars go straight to our fat cells unless we're out of glycogen. That said I wouldn't really recommend intentionally adding fat to your body. I would instead focus on strength training to increase muscle mass and simply eat whatever you would normally eat and whenever you are hungry. Your body is pretty good at adapting to almost any environment and is likely to figure it out on its own. Feel better!
The Southeastern US is packed full of obesity, due to the abundance of fried foods, so I wouldn't be so quick to say that fatty foods aren't as effective at gaining weight; blah!
That whole carb-loading crap only works for certain people...
Insane you make some good points! Fried foods will make you gain weight but an avocado won't. It's all about the type of fat, from what I can see!
If you want to talk about healthy fats, then why not mention tree nuts, peanuts, and sunflower seeds, for example?
Any type of fat can and will lead to fat storage if you eat too much of it. The sugars will put the weight on, but only in fat since they lead to influxes in glucose, insulin and free-floating ATP. Putting on healthy weight takes eating right, sorry.
I don't think she is bodybuilding, nor do I recall this question being about gaining weight in a healthy fashion; blah! By the way, sugar-loading doesn't work for everybody...
