I Need To Put On Weight, Please Help! by Chuksemi(m): 12:57am On Jan 05, 2015
I am ectomorphic and I have a high metabolism rate, which means I don't put on weight , easily! Please recommend Nigerian foods with high calories. I am tired of being thin and I want to change that! Please drop your suggestions and possible amount of calories.

Focus on hefty foods like
Drinks— Try protein shakes, juices or whole milk. Avoid diet sodas.
Breads — Hearty and dense breads, such as whole wheat, oat bran, pumpernickel
and rye, are more nutritious than white bread. Cut thick slices and spread generously with
peanut butter, jam, honey, hummus, or cream cheese.

Vegetables — Look for starchy vegetables (potatoes, peas, corn, carrots, winter squash,
beets). Avoid vegetables that are mostly water (broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini, green beans,
cucumbers).

Fruit — Choose dense fruit (bananas, pears, apples, pineapple, dried fruit) over watery
fruit (oranges, peaches, plums, berries, watermelon).

FOCUS ON FOOD TIMING
Next, don't let yourself be distracted during the day. You have to eat and eat frequently - once
every 2-3 hours would be your best bet if you really struggle to get those calories in.

Thank you Mr Skillz, but this foods are foreign and not easily accessible to the average Nigerian. I have noted the food timing and fruits part, thank you very much!

Take multi vitamins and minerals in addition to eating a healthy diet then, slow things down both mentally and physically. Learn to wake up by 1-3am and eat probably thick egusi soup or the groundnut version with fufu or pounded yam. Your pattern- eat, sleep and repeat and if symptoms persists after one week consult Ifa.

Hit the gym and lift some weights, along with squats for legs and all.

Muscle gain is better than gaining fat.

@chuksemi, we are in the same shoes oo. Ve always been thin and weighing 45kg. The best way for you to gain weight faster is by taking multivitamins and apetite inducing pills.. It worked for me

Skip breakfast, by noon u will be so hungry that u will end up eating a large portion. Eat garri n soup as dinner and have it with coke. Drink loads of water, although it is water weight it will help keep ur skin glowing. So u don't only add weight but with a fine skin that makes u loook healthy.
