Hey, this is Andy Wilkinson from SkinnyGainMuscle.com,
bringing you another video lesson on how to gain weight if you’re skinny.
And in this video we’re covering the main Eating Habits that you need to apply as part
of a muscle building diet if you’re skinny and want to gain weight.
And getting these habits right is so important if you are skinny and you want to gain weight,
because your body – as a skinny person, an ‘ectomorph’, someone who’s naturally thin
– your body responds slightly differently to the foods that you eat, as compared to
a more medium-sized ‘mesomorph’ frame, or a larger-bodied ‘endomorph’ type person.
So it’s really important you understand and apply these eating habits if you are skinny
and want to succeed at gaining weight. So let’s take a look at some of the key problems
that skinny guys face. Well, when you are naturally skinny, you tend
to burn up calories more efficiently. And you have more slow-twitch muscle fibers than
fast-twitch muscle fibers in your body. And a whole bunch of other challenges that
you need to overcome, as a skinny guy, in order to gain healthy weight.
Because slow-twitch muscle fibers have LESS growth potential than fast-twitch fibers.
So you need to look at certain behaviors that you can undertake, and make ‘habits’, in order
to overcome this. So, what ACTION STEPS can you take as a skinny
guy to gain weight more easily? Well, here are 5 Action Steps you can use
right now: #1: Is to focus on a High Carbohydrate Diet.
Aim for 50% – that’s fifty percent – half your overall calories, to come from “complex
carbohydrates”, like whole grain rice, wholemeal bread, sweet potatoes, and fruits and vegetables.
And then #2: Aim for a MINIMUM of 3,000 calories per day as your starting point. (And there’s
another video showing you how to calculate your calorie needs more precisely). But for
now, 3,000 calories is a pretty good starting point.
#3: Distribute these calories throughout your day with 5-to-7 smaller meals.
#4: Aim to consume between 1 and 2 grams of protein for every kilogram of body weight
you have. And if you’re working in pounds, that’s 1 gram of protein per pound of body
weight that you have. And then finally, #5: Make sure you eat within
45 minutes of waking up each day. Get that first ‘meal of the day’ in quick and early.
So, go start putting those 5 tips into action, as part of a healthy muscle building diet
to gain weight. And keep doing them, over and over, until they become HABITS.
