    Advice on weight gain


    Hi. I am 21 years old
    Have been lifting weights for 3 years
    I am 1.78m tall
    My weight increased from 50 to current 57.8kg and plateau.
    The optimal weight for my bmi is around 65kg
    I am worried that my weight is unhealthy

    I do not restrict any food from my diet except for animal fats. I eat late night supper before i sleep. I tried mass gainer to no avail.

    I hit the gym thrice a week, doing Tri-set for 3 body parts each wo.

    Any advice?

    your going to have to write out roughly what you eat in a day mate! Because right now at those stats your pretty dam slim, and i would bet your eating no where near enough!

    Also your exact program your currently doing as well as goals, do you want to compete in bbing, pling or just be a healthy fit young male?

    Answer this and im sure the board will be willing to help as much as you need.

    I dont have to see a meal plan, if your that much underweight you are not eating enough, unless you have a medical problem.

    Try eating this every day for a month and see how you go. You will need to have chocolate protein powder (WPC or WPI).

    Breakfast
    1 cup of plain oats. Add 1 cup of full cream milk, 1 table spoon of Natural penut butter, 1 tablespoon of honey and one teaspoon of pure coco and put in the microwave for 1 minute, stir, and then cook for 1 minute again. Let it cool for a minute then add 1.5 scoops of protein and mix.

    Meal 2
    4 whole eggs + bacon or steak + (veggies of choice). Afterwards eat 50grams of cashews or peanuts

    Lunch.
    1 whole chicken breast (cut and stirfried).
    Condiment for chicken: Salsa (you choose the amount) with 1 teasoon of chilli powder (i like mexican chilli powder)
    1 cup of basmati rice

    After lunch
    2 Scoops of protien in whole milk+1 teaspoon of Olive Oil (in the shake)

    Dinner (Simlar to lunch) You could make meatload or somthing
    1 whole chicken breast (cut and stirfried).
    Condiment for chicken: Salsa (you choose the amount) with a teasoon of chilli powder
    1 cup of basmati rice
    +vegetables of choice (brocoli and capsicum/bellpeppers are good.)

    After Dinner- Mix
    350-500 grams of diet cottage cheese
    1/2 scoop of protien
    1 teaspoon of pure coco
    1 sachet of stevia
    (optional) 1 teaspoon of natural penut butter.


    Follow that to the dot and i guarantee you will put on weight. I good investment for you could be Anabolic Cooking (ebook) by Dave Rule. It has Lots of good recipes that can help you put on weight (or loose it) with dedicated plans for each goal. Its Defiantly worth a try and the meals all taste great. Its the best 40 bucks ive ever spent.

    I don't know how exactly how many calories that is but At 55 Kilo's i know it will be more enough to make him gain weight. I dont know exactly but:

    Breakfast- 700 calories
    Meal 2- 900
    Lunch 500ish
    Meal 4-350
    Meal 5 500ish
    Meal 6- 500ish

    Total about 2950 Calories, or if you dont want so many carbs and less cals just drop the rice off dinner.

    What i forgot to add was post workout nutrition. 1-2 scoop of whey + 1 scoop of dextrose.

    You could replace any of them with weight gainer if its too much food but meal 6 is supposed to be eaten before bed being cottage cheese. Id add a gainer shake sometime during the day instead if you were to want more calories.

    Its purpose is to aid in recovery after a workout, as it is a simple sugar which can be broken down by the body quickly. But yes, it will make your shake sweeter.

    Actually there's done research and studies which have disproved the whole simple carb theory, they do not increase protein synth, and mass gains are the same. Your body never needs simple sugars, I was actually corrected on this recently. If you want some sweetness, use honey, it's high in carbs and healthier. As for post workout carbs use faster acting carbs like rice, pasta, quinoa, or whole grain bread about a half hour to 45 mins after your workout. Then again 2-3 hours later.

    you have to commit to eating.....training is actually secondary to hard gainers, and mass gainers dont work. Pump sets dont make you bigger, eating does.
