Eat more Calories than you Expend
Every individual has a different body make-up and therefore, you will have to check what your daily calorie requirement is by finding out your current daily calorie intake. When you find out your current daily calorie intake, add 500 calories more to it and also add high calorie foods for weight gain for the next 7 days to gain weight by the end of the week.
Increase Portion Sizes
Increase portion sizes by eating more often. Do not depend entirely on breakfast, lunch and dinner. Consume a meal after every 2-3 hours to make it easier to meet the calorie needs of the body. Include protein and complex carbohydrates in your meal.
Drink Healthy Beverages
Drink beverages that have healthy calories. Avoid consuming packed fruit juices as they contain lots of sugar, which is unhealthy for the body. Consume only all-natural fruit juices. Stay away from drinks such as soda, lattes, flavoured coffee drinks, sweetened teas etc. These drinks have many calories but little nutrition and therefore, can help you in putting on excess of unhealthy fat.
