How to add body weight?

Build muscle

Body_weight
Best way to add body weight is to build muscle by strength and resistance training. Also, add, but not too much, protein to diet to help build muscle. Best sources of protein are plant proteins in nuts and beans. I am not a fan of whey protein contrary to the view of many because of reported issues with it.

How to gain body weight??

Increase Muscle Mass

Open-uri20130218-28555-1gv99a8
If you want to improve your body weight and you are normal body composition, increase muscle (lean) mass or fat free mass. Muscle weighs more than fat and this will improve your metabolism as an added benefit. Consult a personal trainer who can direct you with diet, weight lifting and aerobic exercise. This is the "triple" approach to body building.

If one is truly underweight (based on height, family background, and body type), a Dr. can evaluate for a hormonal, digestive, or other disorder. If no medical cause is found, then one can add weight by eating more calories of nutritious foods, while also doing weight-training to increase muscle. Proteins: egg white, chicken breast, salmon,... Better fats: olive oil, peanuts, almonds, tofu,....

Helpful weight loss diets have natural foods that take time to chew but contain few calories. Examples include carrots, celery, and iceberg lettuce (little/no salad dressing). When shopping for fruits, buy small ones no bigger than a tennis ball, because fruits have sugar. Drinks without calories include water and green tea. A calorie is a calorie, but surely avoid sugar & simple starch calories.
