I would like to have my BMI checked, but it must be checked At the end of this video, I’ll leave you with a very easy to use BMI calculator in the instructions. It will tell you if you are obese, overweight, or just fine.
With all that said, let’s start with tip #1. I know it might sound counterproductive, but bear with me because we’re going to figure it out. High-calorie foods that are high in bad saturated fats and sugars should be avoided. I’ll explain why next. We’re talking about chocolate, sweet drinks, cakes, biscuits and basically anything that has a barcode on it. that.
That’s right, you don’t increase lean body mass, you just increase fat. This video will explain that. On top of that, it can increase your cholesterol and put you at a much higher risk of heart attack and stroke.
So, instead of the unhealthy foods in tip #2, I’m going to tell you what I recommend you consume to gain lean body mass in a healthy way. I will leave a lot of information about food ideas in the explanation below, so please read it.
So let’s start with breakfast. Generally speaking, my patience for gaining weight. It’s usually for breakfast. I like porridge with full fat, milk and maybe a little fruit or raisins in there. Or if you don’t like porridge, try, for example, eggs and wholemeal bread.
This, a little after breakfast, will not only increase your calorie intake, but also be healthy at the same time. What I generally recommend to my patients is to have another snack such as a milkshake made with full fat, milk, or fortified milk powder for added protein and calories.
Understood. Now let’s move on to lunch. This will be your first meal of the day. For patients in general, I usually recommend a good source of carbohydrates and a good source of protein. Understood. For example, I’m thinking baked potato, beans, tuna, salad, or even lasagna and a nice salad next to it.
So I hope we’re starting to see a trend now, because a little after lunch, we’re going to have another snack. For example, you can eat toast with peanut butter and honey for extra energy.
Now, let’s move on to dinner, which will be a light meal since dessert will follow. Generally, I recommend something light and tasty, such as pasta, bakes, or sandwiches, but then you’ll want dessert right after.
So, while you eat high energy foods like rice pudding, crumbles, and custard and think your weight gain diet is complete because they taste good, be sure to also include five fruits and vegetables a day in this diet.
This is very important. Go to tip #3. I don’t know if you’ve ever heard of ghrelin, but it’s a chemical that our bodies release to let us know that we’re hungry and need to eat now.
The chemical ghrelin doesn’t last very long. Therefore, if you go on a hunger strike, you need to eat immediately. If left untreated, you will lose your appetite, lose ghrelin, lose your appetite, stop eating, and have no effect on weight gain.
That’s why we tried to keep this video short and sweet. We hope you find these tips helpful! However, keep in mind that if you are losing a lot of weight, this could be a red flag. Therefore, we will leave detailed information in the description below.
