If some are obsessed with their line and weight gain, chaining diets repeatedly, for others, however, the obsession concerns their thinness. Do not be fooled by appearances!
Because these girls who make you envy with their shapeless androgynous silhouette sometimes have only one desire: to be able to gain weight, and sport curves, a symbol of femininity!
Being thin is far from being aesthetic and often these women suffering from thinness are complexed and suffer. Tired of being skeletal? Some tips for gaining some weight and muscle mass.
Thinness, a fatality? For some women, no matter what they eat, they fail to gain weight. Whether they eat light, nibble, stuff themselves, their balance will never fluctuate. Enough to make those who are determined to lose a few pounds green with rage and jealous.
A real complex
However, thinness is far from being a criterion of sensuality, of glamour. Above all, we must stop considering thin people as lucky people. Far from there !
Most are haunted by this desire to gain weight and are tired of being called anorexic . Difficult for skinny people to be flirtatious, to present pretty necklines (for lack of breasts), to wear tight-fitting clothes…
Gaining mass means gaining both fat and especially muscle to shape your figure and sport pretty shapes.
An adapted protein diet
To gain grams, you will have to start by eating more and increasing the number of meals. Before starting, it is important to calculate your daily energy expenditure to know the number of calories expended in relation to what you eat.
The goal: to absorb more calories than you burn. Increase both your rations and your portions, plan five to six meals a day, while gradually introducing foods, so as not to unbalance your metabolism.
And on the food side, you will have to bet on the category of those with high energy density, that is to say rich in calories: sweet applesauce, white rice and you will have to limit foods considered satiating with an index high satiety, especially cereals rich in fiber, fruits, meat…
On the other hand, bet on protein foods , those that help build muscle (egg whites, chicken breasts, almonds, walnuts).
In addition to food, you will have to get active and exercise if you want to gain muscle mass. Sport remains the best stimulant.
And there, bet on sports such as fitness, bodybuilding, athletics , which will stimulate your resistance and your appetite!
Plan training sessions of three sessions per week lasting one hour each. In addition, if you are stressed, sport will help you better control your emotions, channel your stress and thus burn fewer calories.
Often women complain of having a few extra pounds. But there are also women who are too thin, either from their own aesthetic point of view or from a medical point of view.
The reasons for excessive thinness can be multiple, physiological or psychological. Sometimes, metabolisms work so that the body grows very little, or the desire to eat seems to be almost non-existent in some. It is therefore important to be well advised to know how to gain weight, and especially how not to lose more.
Eat balanced and regularly
Contrary to what one might think, it is not recommended to eat anything and anytime to gain weight “effectively”. If this is not recommended for people wishing to lose weight, it is also for those wanting to gain weight.
Because on the one hand the weight gain would only be ephemeral when the goal is long-term weight gain, on the other hand because fatty and sugary foods damage the stomach and overload it: what disgust people with small appetites and break any motivation to eat more. It is therefore recommended to eat a balanced diet on a regular basis.
Eat in small amounts
In order not to burden the stomach or fall into nausea, it is also advisable to eat in small doses. For people who are more difficult to feed, it is better to eat more often but in small amounts. In this case, it is a question of betting on high energy foods, which, even in small quantities, bring a lot to the body. This is the case, for example, of oleaginous dried fruits.
Cooking to reconcile with food
Obviously, to (re)find your appetite, you must above all have fun. But aside from choosing foods that appeal to you, cooking your own meals can help you reconnect with food in a healthier way. And why not to feed a whole table of which you will be part. Conviviality also makes you hungry!
Do a complete medical check-up
If despite your dietary efforts, you do not gain weight at all, it is very important that you have a medical check-up with blood analysis. This can indeed be the sign of a significant deficiency or of a pathology or a parasite that should not be overlooked.
Consult the opinion of a nutritionist
If no physical pathology is detected for you, do not hesitate to go see a nutritionist so that he can advise you and guide you to gain weight. He will be able to interpret your eating habits and identify the way your body assimilates food. And thus offer you an adapted diet.
Choose appropriate clothing
Finally, if your extreme thinness does not cause you any health problems, if for aesthetic reasons you would like to gain weight but you cannot, you can bet on clothes that will highlight you and camouflage your thinness.
For example, gain volume by opting for thick fabrics, clothes with frills or even a shiny fabric (like satin) which will create light and shadow effects giving an impression of scale.
