The media these days is so focused on how fat everyone’s getting that nobody considers those who feel themselves too skinny. People generally don’t have sympathy for someone who wants to gain weight. They often say they wish they had a body like that. The girl who feels too skinny wishes the exact opposite. She wishes she could put on weight so that she felt more womanly, more attractive and more confident. It’s not difficult to gain weight if you’re a girl who can’t seem to put on weight. You just have to know how.
When you eat, how much do you eat? There are some girls who eat everything in sight and never gain a pound, and then there are those who hardly ever eat. The latter either aren’t hungry or they just don’t feel like eating. There is a difference between the two as this group will tell you.
To gain weight, you need to eat more. It’s just that simple. Some would say that those girls that eat everything in sight eat a lot of food and they don’t gain weight. However, those girls probably don’t eat as much as they think they do. The group of hearty eating girls tends to eat big meals but they’ll only eat one or two meals a day. That can amount to the same amount of calories the nit picking girls eat each day. Neither group is eating enough food to gain weight.
To maximize your results, you should plan your meals each day. That way you’ll always have your food available whenever it’s time to eat. All it takes is several small meals and snacks throughout the day to gain weight and keep it on.
It’s said that to lose weight you should eat just enough to satiate you, but you should stop before you’re actually full. To gain weight, you should eat until you’re full. For the girl who feels too skinny, this is going to be uncomfortable at first. Your stomach will probably feel tight, as though it’s going to stretch apart, but this is necessary in order to get the calories required to put on some pounds.
As a general rule, try to eat every two or three hours. Carry your food with you. Try to select foods that are high in protein, moderate in fat and high to moderate in carbohydrates. A great breakfast sample of this is a concoction used by a few champion bodybuilders. It’s made by heating one cup of oatmeal, then adding a scoop of protein powder. Peanut butter is next, along with some fruit to sweeten it up. This gives you everything you need for a complete meal and it will definitely fill you up.
Eat as often as you can, and eat until you can’t eat any more. However, you don’t want to just eat and eat. If you do that, you’re likely to just put on fat. Instead, try to do some weight or body-weight type exercises so that you can add some muscle to your frame. Don’t worry. You won’t get muscular or look like a man. But you will look proportionate, you’ll be able to easily put on weight, and you’ll be more confident than ever.
