Do you want to gain weight fast?
If so, listen to what I'm telling you today.
I weighed about 150 in the past — I now weigh 240 pounds and most of that weight gain was all muscle.
Let me tell you how I did it…
I see many questions posted every day all over the Internet on how to gain weight as quickly as possible.
Many of the people asking the questions do not understand that most of the weight they gain should be muscle and not fat.
You Don't Want to Gain Fat… You Want Muscle
Why would anyone want to gain only fat? Weight gain is easy if you know what you're doing.
I read many of the answers from people who have no idea what they're talking about. I see answers that tell the person to eat Kentucky Fried Chicken and ice cream.
Eating foods like that will get the person nothing but layers upon layers of fat.
Whatever you do, never take that kind of advice from anyone.
The people answering have the right idea by adding more calories, but the wrong types of foods and the addition of too many calories will get you nothing but fat and health problems.
Instead, focus on building muscle fast and not gaining weight fast.
Here's The Right Way To Gain Weight Fast…
The rate at which you should ever try to gain weight fast is around 1 to 2 pounds of weight gain per week.
And that depends on the size of the person. Larger people will have an easier time gaining two pounds than a very petite woman who only weighs around 100 pounds.
You should only try to gain a maximum of 2 pounds per week if you want most of it be lean muscle tissue.
1-2 pounds of weight gain per week is optimal
In order to gain muscle while gaining weight, you need to lift weights.
Lifting weights will move that weight gain more towards muscle gain than fat gain. Like I asked before, who wants fat gain?
So, you need to start a good weight lifting program so that you gain muscle while gaining weight.
Fat gain is unhealthy and makes you look worse, so never strive to gain weight without lifting weights because most of the weight gain, if not all, will be fat.
So, How Exactly Do You Gain Weight Fast?
Well, you now know that you want to strive to gain 2 pounds maximum per week. So, I want you to pick a day and time each week to weigh yourself.
I prefer that you weigh yourself in the morning directly after you wake up. Put the scale by your bed or in your bathroom and ensure that you don't miss the weigh in each week.
Weighing yourself in the morning after you wake up ensures that you are in the same state each and every time you weigh yourself.
You don't want to weigh yourself after eating a huge breakfast one week and then weigh yourself on an empty stomach the next.
You'll get a false reading. You want the most consistent body weight measurements you can get because you will base your calorie intake off of these body weight measurements.
Remember, you will be lifting weights and eating an abundance of nutritious foods while trying to gain weight fast.
You will not be eating unhealthy foods to gain weight. Unhealthy foods will only lead to unwanted fat gain.
So, let's say you weighed yourself on Day 1 and you weighed 170 pounds. You decided to eat an average of 3000 calories for the first week of the WLC weight lifting program.
You gained 1 pound and now weigh 171 pounds. You did great for the first week. You have to stay consistent and continue adding a little weight to your body each week.
So, what do you do for your calorie intake for the coming week? Since you gained 1 pound and you're looking for weight gain at 2 pounds per week, you increase your calorie intake up a few levels.
Increase calories by levels that are proportionate to your body weight.
So, when I say increase 2 levels and your body weight is 170, that means increase by 170×2 = 340 calories.
Your new average daily calorie intake is going to be 3340 calories. You weigh yourself after this week and you weigh 172.5 pounds. You gained 1.5 pounds that week.
And since you are using the WLC System, you gained mostly muscle.
All you have to do is continue with the weekly weigh in and increase calories as needed. Add good foods to your diet as your calories increase.
Add a whey protein shake with a few tablespoons of olive oil or flax oil. That will get you 400 to 500 extra calories per day.
Or add a banana to your breakfast or an extra 1/2 cup of oatmeal.
Plan your diet from the beginning, and you'll meet your weight gain goals much easier.
By the end of one weight lifting cycle with the WLC System, you've gained 15 pounds and the majority is muscle. Congratulations on meeting your weight gain goals.
Fast weight gain is not difficult, but you've got to be willing to work hard with your diet. You must be adding calories constantly. And they need to be healthy calories.
Sometimes the amount of food you have to eat will be uncomfortable. You will feel full all the time.
Don't mistake the feeling of fullness with a larger belly. You have to keep eating if you want fast weight gain. I've been there…
