Are you wanting to increase your overall weight but find you have a super fast metabolism which is preventing this from happening? At this time in your life you're probably annoyed at the fact you have this fast metabolism but later on in life you're going to wish you still had it, but what can you do now to help increase your weight? The obvious answer is to consume more calories right? However not all of us have the budget and can afford to eat a lot so there are other ways to get this job done, here's how....
It sounds so obvious but in order to put on weight you need to consume more calories than what you are burning off. Most of you think you're eating enough but I'm positive if you wrote down what you had in a day you would be shocked to realise that it's not enough. Depending on the person, in some cases you need to eat 1000 calories + on top of what you're already doing to notice a difference in achieving your goal...
Keep It Healthy
The best way to increase weight without gaining large amounts of body fat is through keeping the extra food healthy and clean. When I was younger growing up in the gyms there were guys saying to get bigger you need to consume calories so hit McDonalds, Burger King, KFC etc etc which I personally believe isn't the way to do it. Obviously, these foods are very high in calories but they are also very high in fat which can then be stored on your body and will leave you feeling disheartened.
Use A Supplement
A great way to make sure you reach your goal in gaining weight is through using a weight gainer supplement which contains protein, carbohydrates that will bump up your calories. Remember the whole nature of what you need to do is consume more calories than you burn so, using one of these is a great convenience to you. Good products to choose from are XL Nutrition Xtra Proteins and Carbs or PVL Mutant Mass. They both contain good amounts of calories which will help to increase your weight.
Another sure way of gaining weight is through training heavy and giving your body a reason to crave calories. Within your workouts I advise you perform compound movements such as deadlifts, squats, bench press etc which will send the necessary signals to tell your body you need more food to build. It's all a knock on effect so make sure you train as hard as you can when it's time to workout as this will boost appetite and increase your chances of gaining weight.
