Viral News Boy :- Weight gain or loss are two highly debated topics among people. It has become more predominant these past few years with the fat ones wanting to cut down while the slim ones want to become bigger. Being underweight poses some health problems like fragile bones, weakened immune system, anemia (shortage of iron in your blood), fertility issues, and even hair loss so it might be a good idea to find a balance.
Unfortunately, a lot of them go about these processes the wrong way, using the wrong products and systems. This, in turn, cause several health issues which make things worse. This article aims to take a look at how men and women who are craving some weight gain can do so effectively in ways that are not only healthy but safe for them.
Before you embark on the weight gain journey, you need to figure out if you’re underweight. This you can check using a body mass index (BMI) calculator. There are different apps and websites available on the internet that can easily help you calculate this using some parameters to measure your body fat. Only undergo weight gain if you are underweight so you don’t become overweight or even obese.
How does the BMI calculator work? It bases the score on your weight, height, age, and gender. That score will determine if you are underweight or not. If your BMI is less than 18.5, you are underweight. If it is above 25.0, you are overweight. Anything between 18.5 and 25.0 means you have a healthy weight.
Now, to some healthy ways you can gain weight, here are some recommendations for you to try:
a. Increase your daily calorie intake. Add nuts, high-protein meats, nutritious carbohydrates (brown rice and other whole grains). The idea is to healthily gain weight by consuming more calories than you’re burning.
b. Eat junk food (modestly). Don’t overdo it please
c. Building your muscles also works
d. Try to eat more often.
e. Incorporate dairy, red meat, beans, dense fruits like mangoes or avocadoes, starchy vegetables like potatoes and corn, fatty fish like salmon, into your meal plan.
f. Try appetite stimulants to stimulate hunger. Ask your doctor to recommend some good ones for you to use.
g. Get enough sleep.
