Why can't you to gain weight ?
While there can be many reasons why you are thin, the most obvious reason is because of your genetics. If your parents are naturally thin or have a small body frame, then you will likely have the same small body type.
To some extent, your height can also be controlled by your metabolism. If you have difficulty gaining weight of any kind (fat ou muscle) then you most likely have a fast metabolism. It just means that your body is burning calories at a faster rate than normal. You should take this into account when considering any particular diet or training program.
As you know there are a lot of ways to practice. Hundreds, even thousands. Some work and some don't, but for the specific goal of gaining weight there are a few universal things that every skinny person should do. While most of the information I cover here is not as "magical" as you might like, I consider these rules to be the basics when it comes to weight gain. These are not all the answers, but there are specific things that need to be addressed in any weight gain program successful.
You should be able to easily incorporate these rules into your current program to make it more suited to your body and your particular goals.
General rules :
- Obtain the appropriate information that relates to your condition and specific goals
The first big problem that I encounter with most people is the lack of correct information. Yes, you are motivated and getting things done, but your efforts are wasted due to incorrect dieting and training information. Basically, skinny people take advice from people who have never had a problem with weight gain. You want to know how to gain weight ? So find someone who has walked in your shoes. Someone who has been where you are. Set a specific goal and develop a plan of attack. If you had to drive to another city, would you start driving haphazardly, or do you plan a route that got you quickly and efficiently? Think of your plan as a road map and your goal as your destination. Without a plan and a clear goal, you will not be able to concentrate and you will risk getting lost. This happens more often than you might think. I see a lot of people in the gym or the gym doing anything, or eating anything - with no specific plan or goal. They wonder why they are not making progress. They have no concentration. Having a specific program to follow allows you to take action every day. This action aims to get you to your destination quickly. There is no reflection, debate or guesswork. You just do it. A specific plan provides the necessary daily structure that not only keeps you moving forward, but also helps you develop healthy eating and training habits that will benefit you long after you reach your destination. Have confidence in yourself and believe in what you are doing.
Let's face it, we live in a cruel world. Hatred and jealousy are everywhere. For most people who start a fitness program to improve themselves, getting started will be half the battle. The other half will be staying motivated throughout the constant onslaught of negativity from others. A few negative words can do serious damage if you let them. The most insulting words you hear can come from friends, colleagues, and acquaintances at the gym or gym. People hate change. This makes them anxious, as they suddenly find out that you are more than they were probably willing to admit. They fear that you will actually achieve your goal. This makes them appear less "superior". Once you have started your plan, you must have faith and believe in what you are doing. Stay focused and avoid overly critical or negative people. When I started my program I stopped talking about what I was doing because I was tired of hearing things like "you can't do this", "it's impossible", "you waste your time. The funny thing is now these people are constantly bugging me for advice. It's your life. It's your body. It's your dream. Don't let your success or your failure rest in the hands of others.
