What are the natural ways to add weight to the body and to stay fit?
Well, technically muscle weights more than fat, so if you work on building muscle vs. buildling bulk it should help. Also choosing more proteins to help build the muscle would be good. But that's just me!
That depends on the kind of weight you want to add to the body.
For lean mass, however, you need to stick with lean sources of protein like eggs, beef (preferably grass-fed for its CLA and omega-3 content), poultry and fish.
You can carry a little extra body fat while still being fit and healthy, and the simplest way to add weight is through adding an extra healthy starch to each meal. Bananas and sweet potatoes are your best options.
No matter how you eat, however, it's important to maintain a healthy exercise regimen at the same time.
Eat good sources of proteins and fats, protein is an obvious one for muscle gain, many people who are new to body building presume fats are fatal to your body.
The truth, from extensive experience both with bodybuilding and molecular biology, fats heighten testosterone levels and promote general growth, as metabolism is fuel primarily by fat stores (therefore no fats store means no protein synthesis, which means no weight gain)
also make sure you are eating PLENTY of carbs, rice, pasta, potatoes.
Try to eat healthy!
Also a very good tip for naturally lowering metabolism (which will cause substantial weight gain) is to eat LESS meals but larger portions. This may seem obvious but the emphasis on 'less meals' is the key to weight gain. Read my article on eating more for weight loss if you wish to understand the concept, its essentially the opposite. I may write an article soon purely for this question!
Hope this helps!
