Diet Chart To Gain Weight

How much we weigh depends on several factors including our genes that determine how fast or slowly our metabolism works, our dietary habits, and our exercise routine. Metabolism is the mechanism that converts the food we consume into the energy we require to perform various tasks. People with a faster rate of metabolism are able to burn the calories in the food they eat more easily.  A slower metabolism is often blamed for making people gain weight, but the truth is that they gain weight because they eat more calories than they need.

Low body weight, on the other hand, can be caused by eating disorders or even insufficient exercise. Eating disorders such as binge eating or bulimia and anorexia affect an individual’s body weight.  Diet charts are made to help people reach their optimal weight.

People who are underweight tend to fall sick as much as people who are heavier than their ideal weight. Ideal weight here refers to the recommended weight level for a person based on age, height, and gender.

A diet chart for weight gain should be made for those who are underweight to help them gain more pounds. Eating more food is not the only answer, as the goal is healthy weight gain with increased lean muscle mass. A combination of muscle-building exercises and high-calorie healthy food spread over several small meals during the day should be a part of the diet chart for weight gain for men. Milder forms of exercise may be prescribed for underweight women in their diet chart for weight gain to boost the body’s metabolic rate, even as they consume more calories than they burn.

A healthy diet chart for weight gain should set the target for the calorie intake for the individual who wishes to gain weight, and make provision for comparing the actual calories consumed at each meal, to monitor progress. The diet chart for weight gain should include foods that contain high levels of proteins, carbohydrates, and vitamins spread in all the meals planned. High-calorie nutritious food like nuts, dairy products like milk and cheese, and vegetables and fruits should be included as healthy snacks in the diet chart to increase weight.  Increasing the frequency of meals is easier than consuming more food at each meal, and substituting smoothies and fruit juices for coffee and tea helps to gain weight.

As with the best diet chart for weight loss, diet charts for weight gain should also focus on planning meals based on nutrition facts, balancing each meal to provide the right combination of proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins and minerals. For those in search of a diet chart for weight loss, Indian food, with plenty of vegetables and fruits, is a healthy option.
