Hi, this is Andy Wilkinson from, bringing you another video lesson on how to
gain weight if you're skinny. And the question we're answering in this video
is: "What Foods Should You Eat to Gain Weight
Fast?" First of all, why is it so important to learn
the right foods to eat? Well, one of the most important aspects of
gaining weight successfully is NUTRITION. And if you don't get this part right, it's
very unlikely you're going to be able to increase your muscle mass or gain much weight.
And most skinny guys want to gain weight in a way that's healthy, that does NOT involve
getting a fat gut. They're not interested in eating a bunch of
junk foods that's going to add too much fat to their body, or make their skin look terrible.
So, learning the right foods to eat to gain weight is so important, so you can gain muscle
mass - gain the weight that you want - look healthy, and avoid storing too much fat in
your body. Okay - So, for the foods to eat to gain weight,
one of the major 'keys' to all of this is understand the 3 major food groups - Which
are also called 'Macronutrients'. And these are: Proteins, Carbohydrates, and
Fats. And to understand that an effective weight
gaining diet will include ALL 3 of these major food groups.
Of course, the TYPE of proteins, carbohydrates and fats you choose are very important too.
But let's keep it simple for now, and look at specific foods in each category, that can
help you gain weight in a fast and healthy way.
So, in terms of 'Proteins', you want to stick to and focus on things like: Lean cuts of
red meat, Poultry (such as chicken and turkey), Ham, Fish, Seafood, Dairy Products (including
cottage cheese and eggs). That's a good assortment of proteins.
And for Carbohydrates, you mainly want to stick to what are called "Complex Carbohydrates"
- that release their energy more slowly. Examples of these include: Fruits and Vegetables,
Wholegrain Breads and Cereals, Wholewheat Pastas, Oatmeal, Brown Rice, and Sweet Potato.
And for the Fats, you want to stick to "healthy fats". And sticking to healthy fats such as
Omega-3 and Omega-6 Essential Fatty Acids - which play an important role in helping
you gain weight and muscle as well. And examples of these are: Flaxseed Oil, Fish Oils, Egg
Yolk, Avocado, and Nuts (like almonds and peanuts).
Sticking to "whole foods", like the ones we've just described, can really help you being
able to gain weight if you're skinny. That's not to say that you can't have the occasional
side order of french fries, a chocolate bar, or a biscuit. But the more you eat these healthy
options, the better your results are going to be.
