Natural Ways For Putting On Weight?

Those who are extremely lean tend to have weaker immune systems,

making them prone to infections, surgical complications, and slower

recovery times for illness. They tend to have low muscle mass, and

less than ideal hair, teeth, and skin composition. They may have

disruptions in the ability to regulate hormones and protect bone

health, and women could become unable to menstruate.

There are many reasons why people may find it hard to gain weight.

Genetics can obviously play a role, but individual personalities and

the environment can be strong factors.

Some people are just more physically active, they tend to move around


burning more calories than they take in. In children, the inability

to gain weight may signal a condition

known as "failure to thrive," which means a kid is not growing

appropriately for his/her age. This may be caused by an illness, or

eating patterns dictated by a parental idiosyncrasy.

Being able to eat anything with abandon is also deceiving -- even the

skinny need to worry about having too much sugar and fat for good

health. Poor diets can lead to ailments such as heart disease,

stroke, and


If you want to put on weight, you should work out, to insure that you

put on muscle and not fat. Healthy weight gain, just like healthy

weight loss, takes time and

requires a conscious effort to apply good habits.

Recommended Ways to Gain Weight

Have meals with the right balance of proteins, carbohydrates, and the

right kinds of fat (such as unsaturated and monounsaturated fats,

olive oil, canola oil, pistachios, almonds and walnuts). Heinemann

suggests the following ratio: 60%-70% carbohydrates, 10%-15% protein,

and a small amount of fat.

Eat foods higher in calories, vitamins, and minerals, as opposed to

higher in fat or sugar.

Pack more nutritious calories in each serving. For example, you may

add grated cooked eggs to mashed potatoes, ground chicken to soups and

gravies, cheese in casseroles, eggs, and soups, and nonfat dried milk

in soups, shakes, milk, and mashed potatoes.

If you get too full too fast, try having more high-calorie foods or

slices of foods as opposed to consuming the whole thing (raisins

versus grapes, granola and Grape Nuts versus corn flakes, mango slices

versus the whole mango).

Limit drinking beverages to a half-hour before and after a meal.

Drink mixed juices (apple/berry, peach/orange/banana as opposed to

one juice beverages) for a higher calorie intake.

With moderation, you may add in good fat sources to meals such as

nuts, avocado, olives, and fatty fish (salmon and mackerel).

Snack in between meals. Nuts, dried fruits, and yogurt are good

options, but it's also important to find nutritious foods that you

will enjoy.

Have a nutritious snack before bedtime, such as a peanut butter

Are you trying to gain weight or lose it?

You're only 14 so I wouldn't think that you should have to worry about dieting but if you are the easiest way is to steer clear of foods that are high in fat and watch your calorie intake.

Ex: 3500 calories is 1 pound of body weight so if you're trying to lose weight the easiest way is to monitor your calorie intake each day and subtract 500 caloires from it. Over a span of 1 week you will have lost 1 pound. Very easy, huh?

Before you jump on this "bandwagon," though you need to know how many calories your body needs so visit this website:


and find out what your calorie intake is per day and THEN subtract 500 calories from that.

Also, research (google or yahoo) how many fat grams you should be taking in per day as well. For your age and height (not knowing your weight) I am going to guess that it should be somewhere in the neighborhood of 25-35 grams per day. Try to stick to whatever limit it is and you'll see improvements.

Now, if you're trying to gain weight the opposite principal allows. Intake more calories than your body needs and with time you'll increase your weight. The key is to eat clean and healthy foods, though, such as fish, chicken, meats, vegetables, etc. Steer clear (and it's hard) of pizza, pizza rolls, CANDY, etc.

Good luck!

I was underweight, and I just ate quite a bit more than usual, and sat around for ages after eating so I put on weight (and a bit of tummy flab!). I put on 1 stone, 8lb (22lb) in 9 months.
