Avoid transfats when trying to gain weight. Transfats like margarine, packaged snack can increase belly fat, as well as induce unhealthy insulin levels.

Begin slowly. Add just 300 calories to your daily intake and increase from there to see how your body reacts.

10

You need to give your body plenty of rest between workouts. Going three times per week is plenty if you are in weight gain mode.

11

When exercising, keep your rest between sets to a minute or less, and do not do more than 12 reps in a set.

12

Focus on quality, not quantity. Chips and burgers are not a healthy option. Instead, choose nutrient-dense foods from all food groups.

13

Using plenty of spices, sauces and condiments can help with weight gain. The tastier your food is, the easier it is to eat a lot of it.

14

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.

15

Naturopaths and herbalists use herbs such as gentian to help stimulate appetite and digestion. This will help you eat more and gain weight.

16

Use bigger plates. Definitely use large plates if you are trying to get in more calories, as smaller plates cause people to automatically eat less.

17

Running long distances is not going to help you gain weight.  If you are going to run, do sprints or run up a hill.

18

Avoid binging. Cycles of binging, or overeating and fasting have been shown to cause uneven levels of glucose in people who are not used to it.

19

Have a food journal. Chart what and when you eat every day for two weeks to learn about your eating habits and identify places to add calories.

20

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.
