One can gain weights by eating excessively. One can also gain weight without enough exercise. Too much fatty foods can also lead to weight gain.

HOW CAN YOU GAIN WEIGHT QUICKLY AND EASILY

So, how can you gain weight quickly and easily? Well, here are suggestions and opinions from various WikiAnswer contributors.

  • The best way to gain weight quickly and easily, but safely, is to engage in regular weight training to build more muscle. How much muscle you want to build is up to you (don't worry you do not need to build huge muscles). By building muscle, you will look more toned and you will be far less skinny. Weigh training works well for both females and males. See Related Questions, further down this page, to learn how to weight train and build muscle. You might also care to try eating after 8:00 pm. You are less active after this time. Therefore, your body does not burn all the calories consumed, which might help you to gain weight.

  • Also, try increasing portion size and decreasing activity levels (other than weight training. You might also wish to try high calorie supplement drinks. However, do not consume lots of soda. Soda, pop and cordials are loaded with sugars. These can cause health problems. In addition, do not binge on unhealthy foods such as refined processed carbohydrates, which can cause many health problems and diet related diseases. Try to gain weight in a healthy way. See the page links at the bottom of this answer for a list of refined processed carbohydrates.

  • Weigh train to make yourself tired and to build muscle and be toned. Then eat a large lunch and do little actively for the rest of the day. Eating food shortly before you go to bed in the evening can be helpful way to gain weight.

  • You might want to try a healthy body calculator, which personalizes a diet to suit your lifestyle and height. Some people find it helpful to keep a diary at first to ensure they are consuming enough.

  • However, just eating is not sufficient if you are a naturally thin person. We all need to engage in some kinds of physical activities to convert our food intake to healthy mass. This conversion can take place only with proper exercises such as weight/strength training. People who truly understand how to gain weight quickly and easily do so in a healthy manner with proportionate muscle mass gain.

The recommended way to do this is to eat healthy foods in amounts that are more than your body needs. Eating unhealthy foods would also add to your weight but might harm you in the long run.
If you want muscle-mass more than fat-gain, you'll also need to get plenty of exercise.
Healthy foods to gain weight:

  • red meat; fish (especially oily fish such as sardines)
  • seeds and nuts; peanut butter, almond butter, tahini
  • dairy and eggs
  • sweet fruits such as mango, banana and papaya
  • avocado
  • granola; dried fruit; protein bars
  • whole wheat bread; whole grain breads, crackers and foods; legumes
  • olive oil on salads or wherever appropriate
  • carbohydrate-veggies such as potatoes and yams
1) Note that red meat, dairy, and eggs should be eaten in moderation. If your body's cholesterol is low, you can increase the amount somewhat.
2) Try to eat several (4 to 6) times a day. Have snacks and drink water between meals, not during meals.
3) Try to avoid junk foods except as a treat here and there.
4) Don't overdo it. Gaining weight faster than about 1 pound per week should be done under supervision.

If you gain weight quickly you will have fat problems. And if you lose weight too quickly you will suffer anorexia before you have a chance to gain the average weight. And that is the truth.

Very generally, if u gain a lot of weight quickly, it can put a lot of stress on the heart. If u lose a lot of weight quickly it doesnt let ur metabolism adjust and u can gain it back easily. So if ur trying to lose weight lose it at a rate of about 3 pounds per week

Avocadoes are the most fatty fruit, but they may not help much in weight gain. If you easily gain weight, that will help.
