Eat your protein first and vegetables last. If you have a mix of foods on your plate, eat the calorie-dense and protein-rich foods first.

Instead of diet soda and other low calorie beverages, choose smoothies, yoghurts and high fat milk.

Nutritional supplements, in the form of food or drink, can be useful for some people who are finding it hard to gain weight.

Nut butters like peanut butters, almond butters and walnut butters are great for snacks. They are high in calories, and also high in protein.

Be consistent. Weight gain requires that you increase your daily food intake every day. It may help to write up meal plans.

Believe in yourself. Following your regimen may seem incredibly difficult if you do not believe that you will one day be able to transform your body.

10

Always ask your doctor before trying a weight gaining regiment. You may not be as underweight as you think.

11

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

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

Drink a lot of water. Being hydrated is very important for your body, especially as your body is undergoing changes.

Nutritionists say that eating healthy bread products is a great way to start gaining weight. If you are adding bread to your diet, look for whole grains.

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

Avocados are an excellent way to add heart-healthy fats to your diet. One half of an avocado contains 140 calories.

Try and eat fast. Your body takes some time to give signals of satiety which is why eating fast can help you eat more.

19

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

20

Eat a balanced diet. To ensure your extra curves are made of muscle, not fat, you will need to eat meals and snacks from all food groups.
