I see many people asking me on how to get rid of their body weight. At the same time I hear people asking me how to gain weight as well. In this post I will explain the tips you could use to gain weight in a healthy manner. If you wanted to increase body weight in any way, you could just go on eating sweets. But that is not the point, is it?

The fundamental idea behind increasing weight is not to increase your weight all of a sudden. Take time to build weight so that your body can adjust with the new pattern. One or two kilogram weight gain per month is ideal. For weight gain as well as weight loss a balanced diet is to be followed.

Overeating of fatty food or deep fried food is not a solution for increasing weight. What it could do for you is increase your bad cholesterol [LDL] and make you prone for high cholesterol. It will also increase your blood glucose level, so making an otherwise healthy person diabetic. Some other side effects of bad eating habits are heart ailments, stroke and what not?
