If you want to gain weight the healthy way as an athlete, below are some tips.
Foods to Eat and Habits to Do
Any sport can be used for you to gain weight, however, it greatly matters that you eat the right food as well. Gaining weight include adding healthy fats to your diet, such is the case for olive and/or coconut oil to carbohydrates like meat, potatoes, and other vegetables. Other foods with healthy fat include avocado and nuts and their butters. You can also add peanut butter and oats, and also seeds like chia, sunflower, and flaxseeds to foods that you can consume. Bagels is also the better choice to ordinary white bread.
Foods to Avoid
As much as there are some foods that you ought to eat, there also are some foods that should be avoided. Some of these foods include yogurt, cheese, milk, and granola bars. This is because all of these can cause discomfort and unease on your part, as these are known to produce gas and make your feel uneasy due to the bloating. This bloating may also cause unnecessary weight gain in times when you will already be weighing. Avoid foods with empty calories as well. Note that you want to gain muscle mass, not weight from fat.
