Jacked guy curlingWant to quickly bulk up and add muscle? Gaining weight fast is going to come down to your diet. If you consume more calories than you burn, you will gain weight, and that’s a fact. The more calories that you eat over the level that it takes to maintain your current weight, the faster you will gain weight. To gain weight fast it is important to know how many calories you are eating, and many people who consider themselves “hardgainers” or who cannot seem to put on weight are not adding up their calories. A good place to start is to take what you are eating to maintain your weight, and add 500 calories per day to that number. If after a couple of weeks you are not gaining any weight, add another 500, and so on. You may see weight gain right away after the first calorie increase, or you may have to repeat the process several times before you see the scale budge.

So, how are you going to manage to take in all of these calories? For many “hardgainers”, the amount of calories that they need to eat to gain weight fast is very high, and it can be quite difficult to get it all down when all of those calories are coming from whole food. This is where weight gainer shakes come in. If you cannot eat all of the calories that you need to gain weight fast, consider adding in a high calorie weight gainer shake one or more times per day. Weight gainer shakes are high protein shakes with calories that are generally in the range of 400-900 per serving. They digest much more easily than a meal so they will not have you feeling stuffed, and some weight gainers even include digestive enzymes to further aid in digestion.

Now that you know how to gain weight fast, you will want to be training hard, getting in enough protein, and avoiding “junk” foods, so that you will be more likely to gain muscle than body fat. Don’t forget to get in some green vegetables as well, these not only provide essential nutrients and antioxidants but they are “wet” foods that will aid in digestion. Everyone, even “hardgainers” can gain weight. As mentioned before, if you are eating more calories than you burn, you WILL gain weight, and that’s a fact! Nobody is an exception to this rule, so start counting your calories and eating as frequently as you need to to get them all in, and see the number on the scale finally move up!
