I can't gain any weight. How many calories should I eat every day?

E-mail Print PDF

For many people, gaining weight can seem almost impossible. It’s frustrating to train hard 3 or 4 times each week, and see little in the way of gains. The real key to gaining weight is to make sure you’re eating enough. Sure, there are people who claim they eat and eat but still can’t gain weight.

In most cases, if you follow them around and log their calorie intake, it’s usually not more than 2,000 calories. Although most of them think they’re eating a large amount of calories, they’re not really sure how many calories are in each meal. Instead, they rely on how full they feel to determine when to eat. Unfortunately, this approach to gaining weight never works. To gain weight, you’ll need to accept the fact that you’re going to have to eat even when you’re not hungry!

The first step that you must take is to decide exactly how much muscle you want, and when you want it by. A vague notion that you want to “get bigger” is not good enough. You need a very specific goal, such as gaining 4 pounds of muscle in the next month. Of course, if you’re a beginner, you’ll gain muscle more quickly than someone with a few years of training under their belt.

Then, once you’ve decided on a goal, use the Maximuscle nutrition planner to work out precisely how many calories you should be eating every day. The calculations that the nutrition planner uses to work out what you should eat were developed by a team of highly qualified nutrition experts who looked at all the latest research on weight gain and exercise. It’s quick and easy to use, and won’t take more than a few minutes of your time.

First, use the calorie calculator to work out your calorie needs, then use the meal planner to plan your meals effectively!

Of course, if you’re having trouble eating enough and you don’t have the appetite or time for whole food, the best alternative is to eat your normal 3-4 meals a day and add Progain to your diet. Each serving of Progain provides 495 calories, with over 30 grams of whey protein, and almost 70 grams of energy-dense carbohydrate (no cheap fructose, sucrose, or glucose is added). Over the course of a week, one daily serving of Progain (assuming that you’re still eating your normal diet) will help you pack on almost a pound of lean muscle, when combined with a weight training regime.
