Weight Gain on a Plate

For some, gaining weight is as difficult as losing weight can be for others! Some people have inherently high metabolisms, which when combined with a poor appetite and high activity level results in serious weight loss, or the inability to put weight on! The common method of weight gain is to eat high calorie, fatty foods, binge on biscuits and crisps or consume fast food under the misguided conception that weight gain is weight gain, no matter where it comes from!

For those of you that wish to avoid chronic (long term) conditions such as heart disease, diabetes and cancer however, other options are available.

Increase the calorie and protein content of milk by adding in approx 4tbsp of skimmed milk powder to 1 pint of whole milk, add this to crushed nuts and stir through mash potato.

Melt approx 30g of cheese onto lean, skinless chicken breast and grill.

Topping pancakes made from wholegrain flower with melted peanut butter and honey increases calories and protein whilst delivering antioxidants that support your immune system.

Combine this with a Weight Gainer Protein such as Optimum Nutrition Serious Mass or Optimum Health Ultimate Gainer, and a good quality ZMA supplement such as MusclePharm ZMA and Optimum Health Ultimate ZMA.

Get this combination of diet and supplements right, and healthy, sustainable weight gain is sure to follow!
