The issue of gaining weight continues to come up on this thread. So I thought I would add a simple way of looking at your food than mixing protein shakes and protein bars.

First after a medical from my gp I would consider my protein intake or how much protein should you intake. Depends on who you ask it's between 1-3 gms per kilo of bodyweight. This would have to in my opinion depend on if you are on the gear or not. So what should one do?

If I am going out on a job I will prepare my food in advance using plastic containers. eating chicken breasts, potato or rice or pasta every two to three hours. I would make the meat portion about the size of my fist. Then you can add your hydration pack into your day sack to take along your water and not have to worry about containers. This is guarantee to put on weight. I would start my day by drinking some raw oats about half a cup, pro fuel, milk or water which ever you prefer blend and drink. This can be mixed with some protein powder if you must drink it.

I would then after an hour eat 6 eggs. After this I would start the every 2-3 hours. I would also increase my cardio to one hour in the am and one hour in the pm to keep the body fat down.

Next thing which is much written about is a workout program that can help you achieve your goals. If your considered a hard gainer this will surely increase your weight. Between sets in the gym I would sit down for 5 full minutes between sets to help your body recover from intense training. Squat once a week. Deadlift once a week along with the bench press and other exercises should have you on your way. Squat and Deadlift are key exercises. Don't do them at your own risk of not meeting your goals.

blasting farts and smelling like shiite are not signs the protein is working. It means your taking way too much. Smelling like rotten arse is not a good thing. If you been around bodybuilders surely you've run into one who was blasting farts every 5 min

I put on 4 stone in 18 months - solid muscle, not fat. I went up to 18 stone, 9% body fat.

Consistency is the key.Humans are lazy including me. I ate healthy solid meals, high protein foods, NOT protein shacks or any of that lab crap. Natural is the way.

Gym Mon-Friday, weekends off.

Alright pal,

First of all could you let us know your age, weight, height and goals?

Heres a kick-starter incase its a while before I get to see this topic again (Virgin Media are c***s!)

1g protein - 4 calories
1g of fat - 9 calories
1g of carbohydrates - 4 calories

You need around 1g of protein per lb of total bodyweight and .5g of fat per lb of total bodyweight. You may fill the rest of your controlled caloric intake using any combination of carbohydrates, fat or protein. The only essential macronutrients are protein and fat, carbs aren't.

Don't forget your veggies for your micronutrients.

Weight gain - I'd shoot for 1lb a week, building muscle with minimal fat gain.
Weight loss - 1lb a week to increase the amount of muscle you retain, any more will be burning more muscle.

According to recent research,the approximate normal daily caloric requirement for an average male who performs light activity is 2,200; for a female, it is 1,900.Consume a lot of high-calorie snacks (not junk food) such as cheese sticks, milk shakes, muffins, dried fruits, yoghurt and breakfast bars.

For weight gain i suggest you to have a healthy diet like eating fish, meat, egg, vegetables, fruit juice all these things are healthy enough but with this you need to have some carbohydrate diet it will help you to gain weight with a proper healthy way.

This is great advice on gaining weight. I've been a personal trainer for ten years and a professional fighter for 5. I have always had to lose weight. Feels so good to put some on
