How to put on weight without eating unhealthy foods or compromising my excercise regime? I'm sick of
people saying I'm so thin & asking if I ever eat anything. I eat 3 meals a day consisting of fresh veg. & salad. How can I stop looking so anorexic?
Can find a few tips in this hub:
Maybe slender is your natural body type. There's nothing wrong with that. You're probably rather young with a fast metabolism.
Wait until have a couple of children and reach middle age. Then you may find yourself longing for the days when people were saying you look anorexic.
If you add olive oil to your salad, lots of it, you will surely gain weight and it is very healthy and very good for your skin and hair and overall health.
Peanut butter, almond butter, avacados and bananas also have valuable nutritients yet lots of calories!
Anything with good oils really.
eat 6 times a day and depending on your height and weight add some more calories.
Carnation Instant Breakfast is recommended to the elderly to gain weight and is a good source of protein. Other drinks would be Boost or Ensure. Both the Boost and the Ensure are suggested for those who need to gain weight.
You don't need to eat unhealthy foods to gain weight. It can help you gain weight, but you will lose some of your health.
In order to gain weight, you have to consume more and high nutritional value calories. With other words you have to eat more. Not just fruit and veg, but foods that will supply your body with the right fuel to gain weight.
You may struggle to gain weight because you eat mostly veg and salad.
Whether you are a vegetarian or not, you must include good value carbs and lean proteins to build a stronger healthier body.
3 Meals a day probable won't give your body enough energy to gain weight. Switch over to 6 small meals a day, consisting of lean protein, healthy carbs and fruit and veg. And snack every 2 hours on healthy snacks.
Some of my favorite super healthy snacks include:
* Veggie sticks
* Fat free yogurt
* or few (2-4) whole-grain/wheat crackers with fat free cottage cheese and tomato/cucumber
If it is not practical for you to eat that often, invest in a healthy meal replacement shake. Just don't go for the diet shakes, you don't want to lose weight. A protein shake will be ideal.
Weight training is another exercise that can make you pick up weight and look more muscular (and less anorexic). Aim for 3 sessions a week, doing upper and lower body.
If you follow my tips and you stay away from unhealthy methods of picking up weight, you will gain weight and muscle the natural, healthy way.

If you have tried and tried to lose those last few pounds and just can't seem to do it, you are not alone. Even with excercise and good eating habits, sometimes your body needs an extra boost or shock if you will.

Healthy ideas for gaining 7 to 10 lbs?Recently, due to a new job I have lost more weight than I wanted. Other than gaining muscle, does anyone have any idea how to gain 7 to 10 lbs. I would just consume more than I'm burning, but I have no idea how much I am burning.
