hi man,Increasing your intake of junk foods and greasy foods is not a good way to gain weight. Junk foods usually contain unhealthy trans fats or saturated fats. Even though you need to increase your calorie consumption to gain weight, those calories should come from foods that are good for you.Healthy fats include omega-3 essential fatty acids sources like tuna, salmon, flax, and walnuts. Good sources of protein include lean meats, fish, poultry, nuts, seeds and legumes. Healthy carbohydrate sources include fruits, vegetables and whole grains.It may be easier to eat five or six smaller balanced meals per day rather than eating three large meals, especially if you are not used to eating much at one sitting. Protein powders and nutritional supplement drinks such as Ensure can be added as in-between meal snacks if you still need more calories. Some protein powders are flavored and only need added water and some others can be blended with your choice of juice or milk to improve the taste.It would also be a heal

see for a healthy gain of weight u need to exercise or go for a daily morning walk/ swimming ....that will not only increase your appetite ,but also burn the fat & make way to gain muscle mass thru proteins ..... u shud have diet rich in proteins & carbohydrates incl milk products fruits grams vegetables wheat corn s white meat ..... the motto shud be to gain health not weight alone as bad fat /weight will be a forerunner of ddiseases like diabetes / metabolic syndromes

Sir, weight reduction is a simple mechanism can we maintain through our food only.
1. more fiber food will regulate our body weight,
2. In our every day diet u must take rice or wheat and vegetable and the green leaf ratio must be 1:2.
3. Drink more water. Approximately 5 lit per day.
4. Do physical work like cleaning the garden for at least half an hour per day
5. Reduce the stress. B"because this is a main factor for overweight.
6. Avoid oily food and junk food
7. Sleep well.
Thank you.

How to gain weight Weight gain is something that isn't easy to do and you probably know this already. I know first hand because it is something I have to do every day. I am an ectomorph by genetics, which is the "skinny body type" and the one with the fast metabolism which makes gaining so hard for guys like me. The key to weight gain is to do everything BIG. You have to eat big, to lift big, to get big. Say that over and over again in your head until you fully understand it. A lot of people think weightlifting is the key to gaining weight, and I won't argue, it is an extremely important part. BUT, there is another thing that is just as important when it comes to how to gain weight, and that is your diet. So, to put it as simply as possible, there are 5 simple steps to how to gain weight, and here they are: 1) Count how many calories you eat in a normal day. Don't change anything, just eat like you normally would and count how many calories you consumed. This is an extremely important step, so try to

Exercise increases the appetite and though it may seem surprising, you there is a strong possibility that you would actually gain weight. This is because you have little fat to lose, and this would only get converted into muscle, while your intake of food will increase. So if you have been eating two chapatis, your stomach would demand a third.

hi guys,Losing weight is a challenge, but keeping it off can even more difficult without a good plan and healthy habits.Here are suggestions to help you keep the weight off that you've worked so hard to lose. Understand what works best for you -- such as what rewards best motivate you, what tempts you most, and what helps you resist those temptations. Be realistic about how much weight you should lose. Maintain a good balance of calories taken in versus calories burned. Get enough exercise. Even a brisk daily walk can help you keep those pounds off. Keep notes and records of your food intake and daily activity. Plan your meals, and make healthy food choices at the grocery. Don't weigh yourself more than once a week. Plan ahead for holidays, special occasions, and other times when you may be likely to splurge and take in additional calories.

hi,count how many calories you eat in a normal day. Don't change anything, just eat like you normally would and count how many calories you consumed. This is an extremely important step, so try to be as exact as possible. Also, weigh yourself. Starting the day after you counted calories, eat 500 calories MORE then you normally do. So, lets pretend that the day you counted calories you counted 2000. For the rest of the week, you would now eat 2500 calories a day. Instead of eating 3 big meals a day or eating all day all the time, spread those calories out over 5-6 smaller meals. Eat one meal every 2 and a half to 3 hours. To get big, you have to eat big! Remember that.
