Some people struggle to lose weight and some struggle to gain it. For some people, it is easy to lose fat but hard to become bulky. While for some it is easy to put on unwanted pounds and then extremely difficult to lose them. This is all just the mechanics of life.
Gaining or losing weight depends on various factors of your lifestyle. Including your diet, your exercise routines, and so on. If you are a fitness fanatic, an athlete, or just some 9 to 5 office worker with some fitness dreams in your head. You can achieve your goals, not by hard-working rather by just making some adjustments in your diet plans.
Yes! I actually mean that you can both lose fat and gain mass just by sticking to an appropriate diet. With that said, if you are a fitness enthusiast who is trying to put on some weight while you are travelling or on a vacation, then you must increase the intake of the foods that I’m about to talk about in this article.
Are you ready to put on some weight the healthy way? Let’s get started with these top foods that can help you become muscular in no time.
1- Increase Milk intake
Dairy products especially milk have the ability to increase weight rapidly. Bodybuilders and fitness athletes have never left dairy products like milk from their diets. You may have also seen other gym members wearing gym workout shirts, exercising, and drinking their protein milkshakes with added supplements to increase their body sizes. They have a solid reason for drinking milkshakes.
Milk is rich in calcium, casein, and whey proteins along with other vitamins and nutrients that help in making your bones stronger and make you bulkier. Depending on where you are traveling, you can find milk almost anywhere. Whenever you feel like it, you can try out some ‘fresh’ milkshakes while walking on the way to your destination.
2- Eat rice
To be precise, we are trying to help you gain mass without adding fat to your body. Cholesterol or unhealthy fats can make you ‘obese” instead of muscular. Therefore, it is imperative that you eat foods that have a natural tendency to increase body mass and not adding cholesterol to your body. Rice is one of the best foods when it comes to increasing mass naturally.
Rice contains little to no fat and contains high carbs and calories. While traveling try out some restaurants that serve rice. Eating rice regularly will help you gain mass effortlessly.
3- Eat red meat
For decades meat has been considered as the most important food to gain muscles and body weight. Meaty dishes like steaks have been perceived as manly foods that help in making your body stronger and bigger. And this notion couldn’t be truer.
Red meats are especially loaded in ‘high-quality’ proteins that are vital for muscle and tissue building purposes. Therefore, in case you are not vegan, maximize your protein intake by eating loads of red meat.
Pro tip: Do not wear tight or uncomfortable outfits after heavy meals, as doing so can slow down your metabolism rate and disturbs the digestion process. Wearing lightweight and fashionable athleisure outfits like workout hoodies and sweatshirts can keep you comfy, increase your looks, and can also improve your metabolism.
4- Eat fish
Fish are excellent sources of protein and healthy fats. Vitamins and nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids, Vitamin A, B, E, etc are building blocks of a strong and healthy body. Not only eating fish like Salmon, Tuna, etc can increase your body structure but can also strengthen your immune system to fight against a wide range of diseases.
While you are on a vacation or a trip, try out different types of sea meat or oily fish. For example, try some lobster, shrimp, Haddock, Swordfish, etc. to enhance your body mass as you go.
5- Nuts & Butter
Here’s the deal, there are two types of fats. One is healthy and the other is disastrous. Healthy fats are unsaturated and unhealthy fats are called Trans fats. Your aim should be to eat foods that are rich in healthy fats because they do not actually make your fat, rather they are good for cardio and overall body health. Increase intake of foods like nuts, peanut butter, avocado, coconut oil, and so on.
