As you might already know, weight is a very sensitive topic for women. Be it either weight gain or weight loss, a woman desires her body exactly as she depicts the image of beauty to be. With this comes the need to ensure that is she’s over her desired weight, that she loses it, or if she’s under, that she gains it. Various products and regimes can be advised to women who belong to either category, and coaches or assistants are available to walk one through these journeys of self-change. Nutritionists would also make for excellent consultants. Experienced in the field of foods and their nutritional contents, they can deduce just what you might need to change the way your body looks. There are several ways in which a woman can gain weight, and these range from healthy diets, exercise, snacking, appetizers and many more. In this article we are going to jot down a few of the ways a woman can gain weight.
Nutrition. I began with this point not because it is the easiest, but rather because it is the one in which if you lose the most self-control, you will end up furthest from your goal than with anywhere near it. Nutrition is the controlled intake of your food. It is the careful selection of which food products and in what quantities you will consume it in order to achieve a predetermined goal. Be warned, many focus on consuming as many calories as they can. And though this might work to a certain extent, nutrition is just as important as calories. Balancing all nutrients gained from food and proportioning them, is one of the most effective ways of gaining weight. Weight gain requires eating foods rich in both nutrients as well as calories. With this guideline, begin with foods rich in nutrients, then enrich those additionally with foods such as yoghurt, fruits nuts and healthy fats. The frequency with which you eat is also quite important. Several frequent smaller meals are better that fewer larger ones. Try to eat an average of six times a day. Ensuring that each meal has at least some protein, starch, vegetable and fat.
Stress reduction. It’s impossible to completely delete worries from your life. I am well aware of this, however if you can adopt a healthy manner in which you will address any of the challenges life throws at you, that will also be in the best interest of the weight you would like to gain. Taking time to balance your diet and exercise plan in accordance with your activities and moods, will have you yielding high results faster, than if you ignored one or two components in that equation. Ensure you do not skip meals due to anger and stress, and never ever say “you were too busy to eat.” Putting your health and weight gain goals at the fore front if everything that you do, will have you in a better position, than if you do it halfheartedly. All in all, be geared and dedicated to the change. Be committed to the goal and focus all your efforts towards it. Weight gain is quickly evident thus it won’t be long before both you and everyone else around you, begin to notice the difference.
Exercise. It might seem like odd advice to give, because you might ask me how you are actually supposed to gain weight with exercise when you feel like you actually would be losing it. The answer is simple. Exercise alone won’t gain you weight. You need to increase both your exercise as well as your calorie intake. There are exercises that can give you weight and muscle, and these are exercise that are different from those that are adopted by others whose intention is actually to lose weight. Choosing a fitness trainer to whom you would communicate your weight goal is an advisable move. With their experience, trainers will better guide you on what exercises to do and how often to do them and this will result in you building curves in the right places, and attaining the figure you desire. But as I said, you cannot focus on only exercise and not be careful about what you eat. You need to have a food intake that balances the exercise you are doing. And when I say food I do not mean junk food. Instead I mean foods that contain healthy fats such as fish, olive oil and nuts.
Supplements. Now it wouldn’t be many people’s first choice but it still is an option nonetheless. Shakes cannot be termed the healthiest ways to gain weight but they do help you achieve the goal. In addition to this, it would also be incorrect to say there aren’t some good supplements out there. Proteins shakes, famous for their boost in your protein consumption have been used by millions and millions of people, and many have attested to what a great help they were. I would advise, that the first step be a consultation with a nutritionist. Guidance on which supplements in particular you would need to take and what you would gain from each is information that only a professional can give you. The first supplement they would recommend I’m sure would be the Vitamin B Complex. This is a supplement that boosts your appetite and makes you feel hungry more often. With this, you are guaranteed to eat more and subsequently gain more. After this supplement, you may jointly, on which others to take. Many people use Optimum Nutrition Creatine Powder to Increases muscle strength and power.
Thus if you’re looking to gain weight, you can try any of the above methods or even a combination of them. Mentally though, you need to have made the concrete decision to dedicate yourself to your mission. It is with self-conviction that you will give yourself the extra push to eat just a little more, or exercise just a few minutes more. And all these added efforts are the ones that will ensure you gain weight quickly and in a healthy manner.
