Working with a fixed amount of calories and a set number of hours in a day can be extremely challenging for anyone trying to lose weight. And it doesn’t get any easier once you extend this challenge to other people in your household, let alone your coworkers, friends and acquaintances. Instead, you need to find ways of accommodating others so that they don’t feel pressured by the situation- or at least not as much as you do from time to time. This article looks at some clever strategies you can use to successfully gain weight without exercising if you know how to implement them (hint: it involves eating more).
Eat More At Breakfast
If you’re trying to gain weight, it’s very wise to start your day off with a hearty breakfast. Not only will this keep you full for longer, but it’ll also help to curb your hunger between meals. To maximize the effects of this, you’ll want to consume at least 300 calories worth of foods at breakfast. This will help to put you in the positive energy zone throughout the rest of the morning and help to sustain your energy levels during the day while you’re slacking off at work. When it comes to choosing which foods to consume, you have a couple of options. - A bowl of oatmeal, an apple and a glass of almond milk is a good option. You’ll get a good amount of carbs, protein, vitamins and minerals while staying within the 300 calorie intake. - A fruit salad with yogurt is another option that provides the same benefits with fewer carbs. - A protein shake loaded with a variety of nutrients is yet another strategy that’s both tasty and filling.
Eat Your biggest meal of the day early
If you want to gain weight, there are a couple of things to bear in mind. First, try to consume at least two large meals per day. Second, take advantage of one of them to consume your largest meal of the day. This is because consuming this large meal early in the day will have a number of benefits for you. It’ll help to fuel your muscles during exercise while you’re engaging in it, and it’ll also give you energy so that you don’t get lazy while working from home. That being said, this larger meal should be consumed at least three hours before bedtime. Doing so will allow you to feel more satisfied (so you don’t get too hungry again in the middle of the night), and it’ll also help to curb your appetite so that you don’t overeat at dinner.
Drink your favourite beverage immediately before eating
Consuming a beverage before every meal can be a great way of adding more food to your plate without overtly doing so. To make this even more effective, you’ll want to pair this drink with a high-calorie snack to increase the overall amount of calories you consume. This may be obvious, but one easy way to get more calories into your diet without even trying is to drink your favourite beverage immediately before consuming your snack. Doing so will fill you up, and it’ll provide a bit of sweetness that you’ll enjoy while still helping to increase your caloric intake. There are plenty of beverages that can be used for this purpose. Some of the best options include milk, smoothies, and juices.
Don’t skimp on snacks
Snacks may not be the most important part of your diet, but they’re certainly important for boosting your metabolism and keeping you satisfied throughout the day. This is because snacks are the only meals that you eat throughout the day. That means that you don’t get to eat anything larger than this and that you’re not consuming any calories from food that has been grown by someone else. That being said, snacks are also extremely important in gaining weight because they’re where you’ll consume the majority of your calories. How you snack is extremely important, though, in order to make sure that you don’t skimp on the calories. Some of the best strategies for this include: - Eat a small amount of high-protein snacks immediately before exercising regularly. This will help to fuel your muscles while you work out, and it’ll also keep you full while you’re engaging in other forms of physical activity. - Similarly, consume a small amount of high-calorie snacks immediately before doing any other sort of physical activity. This will help to keep you energized during this time, and it’ll also help to boost your metabolism. - Don’t forget about the benefits of drinking your favourite beverage before taking a break between sessions. This will provide you with both sweetness and calories.
Try a new recipe occasionally
When you’re trying to gain weight, you need to think outside of the box. Doing so will help to expand your culinary horizons and give you the chance to try out new recipes that you may not have done before. That being said, it’s also important when trying out new recipes that you don’t forget about the established ones that you know work. - If you’re trying out a new recipe, it’s important to remember that the purpose of this is to add the most amount of calories to your diet. This is because you want to make sure that you don’t forget about the calories that you’ve gained from exercise and other sources throughout the day. - For this reason, it’s wise to focus on the new recipes while taking note of your regular ones. This way, you’ll make sure that you don’t forget about what you’ve already gained.
Lock in your gains with protein
Protein is one of the most important nutrients in your diet, as it can help to build and repair muscles. That being said, it can also be used to help build your body up if you want to gain weight. The best way to make sure that you’re consuming enough protein is to consume a protein-rich meal (or snack) immediately before bedtime. This will allow you to consume a significant amount of protein before you fall asleep. You’ll be able to do this without falling off the wagon and consuming too much food. What you want to make sure of when doing this is to make sure that you don’t consume any other calories. Doing so will cause you to gain weight, and you don’t want this.
