1

Exercise, especially strength training, can help you gain weight by building up your muscles. It may also stimulate your appetite.

2

When it comes to adding pounds, you have to be patient. You will not see results overnight.

3

Take creatine. The muscle building supplement creatine monohydrate can help you gain a few pounds in muscle weight.

4

Extra virgin olive oil, safflower oil, coconut oil, and peanut oil are full of flavor and heart-healthy calories when enjoyed in moderation.

5

Eat lots of protein. The single most important nutrient for gaining healthy weight is protein.

6

Drink milk when thirsty. Drinking whole milk to quench thirst is a simple way to get in more high-quality protein and calories.

7

Get advice from your physician if your poor weight is due to an illness. High calorie diets are advised for cancer patients.

8

Never train hungry. Your metabolism is in starvation mode and shuts right down. Aim for a minimum of at least 3 solid meals in your system before training.

9

Do not work out the same muscle group on consecutive days. Your muscles grow when resting.

10

Be very careful on post work out nutrition. Give your body a huge dose of carbs and protein to help in the recovery process.

11

Get rid of anything that is fat free. Make your own salad dressing with healthy oils, rather than buying them ready made.

12

Be realistic about your body type. People trying to regain weight after illness or surgery usually gain it more easily than someone who is naturally thin.

13

Treat yourself. Even when underweight it is fine to have an unhealthy treat every now and then. But be mindful of excess fat and sugar.

14

Eat before bed. A lot of healing and regeneration happens while we sleep, so eating before bed can give your body the nutrients it needs to do the work.

15

Get on a regular eating schedule. You should eat three meals a day and snack in between and after dinner, no matter what.

16

Drink a glass of red wine before eating. Studies show that a small glass of red wine can help you enjoy your meal more. It may even lead you to eat more.

17

Remember to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables as they should be a major part of any healthy diet.

18

Check your progress by weighing yourself at the same time each day, preferably before eating breakfast.

19

Pump up soups, casseroles, mashed potatoes and liquid milk with 1 to 2 tablespoons of dry milk powder.

20

Do not waste your time or money on powders, pills and products that claim to increase muscle mass.
