For decades now we’ve had official standards that classified us into healthy weight, underweight, overweight and obese. You can even break those down further if you’d like. But the point is, once we became divided into those categories, everyone was obsessed with weight. Some men slimmed down to the point where they were actually underweight and women have gone crazy with the whole diet thing the last 10 years or so. There are lots of websites that will tell you how to lose weight, but here, we’re going to tell you how to gain weight – and more importantly – why you should.
There are three different strategies that we’ll discuss for gaining weight the natural way. All of them are important. While our society is obsessed with being as thin and fit as possible, you shouldn’t be underweight. Find out what your ideal weight is and stay between the two numbers, don’t go too low or too high, or you’ll put yourself at risk for health problems. While it’s not as bad as being overweight, being underweight is actually bad for your health as well.
Better health isn’t the only reason people seek to gain weight though. Weight gaining is a frequent aim of people who wish to get stronger and Boxers/MMA fighters who want to fight in a higher weight class. Having a good BMI will lead to a better lifestyle and to more physical strength and it’s always nice to be stronger even if you’re not a boxer or a powerlifter. Now, let’s discuss the weight gain strategies.
