Am A 105Pound I Wish To Gain Atlease 20 More How Often Or How Much Ensure Plus Should I Drink To Gain That Amount Of weight?
That can help with: Weight gain. There are many ways to gain weight. At healthy high calorie foods. Eat 6 meals/day. Work on strength training to build your large muscle groups. Workout w heavier weights w fewer repetitions. Sleep at least 8 to 9 hrs/night. Hydrate well w water. Foods to help w healthy weight gain: almonds, cashews, pecans, sunflower seeds, flax seeds, walnuts, hummus, avocados, granola & trail mix.
Calories: Look at the calories. Whichever has the most, would help you gain more weight.
Not likely: Ensure is a processed food with a lot of sugar. It can be a help for debilitated older persons but a 29 year old with liver damage would do much better with eating lots of fresh vegetables and colorful fruits in 6 equal healthy meals with small quantities of high quality protein and olive oil. Persons with depression may need vit d 3 supplements. Exercise through the day. Pretend jump roping.
I'm a 23 year old female and I weigh around 138 lbs if I drink three ensures or nutriments a day will that help me gain weight?
Probably, but why?: For a woman in her twenties, 138 lbs sounds normal (but that depends on her height, and what she has been weighing over the past 12 months). In general, we doctors like to do things the natural way, meaning we prefer weight gain by eating nutritious foods that are part of a balanced diet. Balanced means a good variety of foods. Ensure comes in a can, but if needed, it will increase one's weight.
Weight gain: Weight gain occurs when an individuals intake of calories is >> than the expenditure of calories. Most people need 22-25 kcal/kg/d to maintain weight (kcal =1 food cal). If you exercise, you burn more calories & need more fuel; couch potatoes less! To gain 1 kilo/month you need to intake 500-1000 cal/day in excess of what your body requires. It can be w/ensure or any other good source of food.
The math: Ensure plus = 350 calories. One pound = 3, 500 calories. 3, 500 calories divided by 350 calories = 10 days with all other factors remaining the same.
That depends on how: Fast a rate of gain you desire ; how many calories your take in compared to how much you burn. Ensure plus is 350 calories ; there are 3, 500 calories per pound.
Avoid Ensure...: More calories will help you gain weight but I do NOT advise Ensure, as it has many ingredients from GMO sources (corn sugars, soy, canola oil) and ingredients like synthetic Vit. E which are best avoided. You can go to a health food store and find a whey protein powder from grass-fed cows and mix it with organic juices. You will get just as many extra calories as Ensure but it will be healthier.
My son is 16 &138lbs at 5 "11" he wants to gain weight & I was wondering if drinking 2 ensures a day will help and is it a safe method?
Hi. ..I'm want to gain more weight. My current weight is 116 pounds. I've been drinking ensure plus and boost plus. How many should I drink a day?
Gaining Weight: Probably 2-3 bottles a day in addition to your regular 1600 calories a day food intake to maintain 116 pounds at normal daily activities. This will add 500 extra calories per day. There are 3500 calories in 1 pound of weight. If you add 500 calories a day in a week you will gain 1 pound of weight. 500 x 7=3500 calories
What can I be prescribed to make me gain weight because I been 100 pounds half of my life and im now 26 years old. I've been drinking ensure and boost?
A matter of balance.: To gain a single pound, you must eat 3500 calories more than you use. This would translate to an increase in calories of 500/day to gain one pound in a week! Continue to be sure that your extra calories are nutritious, not junk. Greek yogurt, cottage cheese, almond butter on whole grain toast, smoothies are other good examples. You probably don't get much sympathy, but it can be hard to gain!See 1 more doctor answer

Please see your doc: He/she may do some blood work, including a thyroid test. This will help determine the cause of your weight status. Insure is helpful for some but you are too young to be in need of a product like that. Protein powder shakes may be helpful. Nuts are also a good source of protein.
If someone is trying to gain weight, is there anything wrong/unhealthy with drinking ensure plus everyday as a way to add additional calories?
No real harm: Just consuming the calories, however, is not going to guarantee that the body will add them as lean mass (muscle). You should combine a weight lifting or resistance type exercise to your week to encourage the body to use the calories to build muscle.

Diet and muscle mass: To gain weight you have to consume more calories than you are burning. Do this in a healthy way though. Don't choose junk or fast food.
