Gaining weight becomes a difficult task for girls who are naturally skinny and have fast metabolism.  It is difficult to overcome genetic predisposition to thinness.

However, experts are of view that most girls don’t eat enough to gain weight.

The first thing you must do to gain weight is to decide what kind of weight you are aiming at. Is it fatty weight or the lean muscles that are your target. If you have fatty diet then you are more likely to accumulate weight around your tummy, thighs and hips. Whereas, if you aim for lean muscles then you will get them on the areas you are targeting during workout. In order to gain lean muscles you must do strength and weight training.

Find out your daily calorie requirement .i.e. the amount of calories your body uses in daily activities. To gain weight you must consume 500 to 1,000 extra calories than you burn in a day will surely help to gain weight.

Make sure that you increase calorie intake through healthy diet rather than fatty foods. You should get those extra calories from healthy, nutritious and calorie- dense food. Oily fish, oats, red meat, nuts, whole grains, dried fruit, potatoes and even full-fat dairy products are healthy food with low calories.

If you feel that you are not able to meet your calorie requirements through food then increase your fluid intake such as milk. Fruit juice, smoothie, fruit and milk shakes are healthy and help you skinny girls gain weight.

Drink soy milk or juices with milk. This will multiply the needed calories and help you gain weight. Take three meals in a day i.e. breakfast, lunch and dinner. And at least three servings of healthy snacks. Cheese sticks, muffins, milk shakes, dried fruits, yoghurt and fresh fruits can be taken for snacks. Make sure that you don’t snack on high calorie junk food.

To gain weight you need to make smart food choices. Your food must include more carbohydrates, proteins and fats. Food with high starch value such as rice, tapioca and potatoes and protein rich food such as beans, pulses and peas must be included in the diet.
