You desperately want Kim Kardashian, Beyonce or Riri’s body, but every time you try you end up looking like a skeleton or a Cow instead!
So how does one put on weight in the right places and keep the wrong places (our guy and love handles) from blowing up as well? Here are few tips from our fitness experts:
Have an occasional treat. Even when you’re underweight, be mindful of excess sugar and fat. An occasional slice of pie with ice cream is OK. But most treats should be healthy and provide nutrients in addition to calories. Bran muffins, yogurt and granola bars are good choices.
Exercise. Exercise, especially strength training, can help you gain weight by building up your muscles. Exercise may also stimulate your appetite.
Choose nutrient-rich foods. As part of an overall healthy diet, choose whole-grain breads, pastas and cereals; fruits and vegetables; dairy products; lean protein sources. Here are three examples of the food we should be eating on a “thick” diet.
If you are trying to count calories, then you probably won’t like to eat a handful of nuts as a snack. However, this doesn’t mean that nuts are unhealthy.
Because nuts, such as cashews, almonds, peanuts, and so on are an excellent source of protein they are often higher in calories. And you can’t build muscle without a healthy source of protein and a filling snack.
Mixed nuts are also proven to boost productivity and energy levels to help get you through your day, and give you the energy and fuel you need to power through your butt and thigh-building workout.
Tuna is another food that is an excellent source of protein and is a staple in every butt-builder’s diet. Not only is tuna extremely affordable and convenient, it can be incorporated easily into various recipes.
It can be mixed with eggs, vegetables, and even used as a sandwich spread. Mix tuna with avocado as a substitute to mayonnaise when making egg salad.
Tuna is also a great snack and can be incorporated in almost any meal.
Avocado is a fruit, but it is also a source of healthy fats. It is loaded with potassium and fiber, making it a great addition to any healthy diet. Although it is a source of (good) fat, avocado should still be consumed in moderation.
Avocado is a great substitute for mayonnaise in many recipes and can be mixed with eggs and even used as a sandwich spread or added in a salad as a substitute for salad dressing.
