The stepping stone to building an amazing body is doing everything big from what you used to. To begin with, get yourself to understand the importance of lifting and eating big. Gaining weight is not a process that’s gender discriminating. Therefore, the path to it is much the same for girls and boys alike.

It is seen that as boys do greater amount of physical activity than girls such as playing games or sports, the male gender has a greater appetite. Here are some tips that have been especially designed for girls which will give instant results.


Eat, eat and eat

It is eating that is going to trigger weight gain. Include foods that are healthy and have enough carbohydrates and healthy fats to help you in increasing body weight. Rather than restricting yourself to breakfast, lunch and dinner, eat small meals at regular intervals throughout the day to ensure that you don’t feel hungry. Charter a weight gain plan and mention the necessity to eat every 2.5 to 3 hours a day. Consume food like vegetables, fruits, milk, steak and other assorted types of nuts. Eating more, however, does not infer that you should eat whatever you can find within reach. Having healthy snacks in between meals is also a good advice in managing your diet.


Exercise regularly

Exercising and working out will ensure that the calorie intake gets streamlined into an orderly fashion and not in a haphazard manner. If you do not exercise, the calories will accumulate to form fat deposits which will make your body look in very bad shape. If you want to hit the gym, the treadmill is the best exercise option for girls. Jogging on the treadmill for about half an hour will ensure that your body gets into good shape. Squats and chin ups are also good exercises for you. Talk to your gym instructor to decide on the best kind of exercise for you. Weight gaining exercises depend a lot on the body structure of the person in question.


Start counting calories

You need to follow a diet chart where at the end of each week, you can check your weight and find out how many pounds you have gained. When you go shopping, choose the food items that are high in calories and low in sugar. Start counting your calories on an everyday basis; this does not mean that you have to change your eating habits. Eat the way you used to and count the number of calories that you have been accumulating throughout the day. This helps one to be as accurate as possible and this is important to manage gain or loss of weight.


Gaining weight is something desired. If you are underweight or feel that you are skinny, you can try gaining weight naturally and through the shortcut approaches.
