How to gain weight where I find too difficulty over the years even I had my workout regularly. I'm 22 years male from India. I find too difficult to gain weight, where my weight is just 58 kg for the 172 cm height. I also tried workout but it gained me only the muscle not the weight. I feel so shy when i'm going with loose shirts and t-shirts. My family's wealth situation is not so well now, so better don't prescribe me costly protein powders and drugs. Please help me.
My son has had this problem too. He does use the protein powders and does prefer the more expensive ones but when his financial situation does not allow for the more expensive ones he finds that the less expensive ones work almost as well but they may taste more chalky. He uses a couple of different powders he finds at WalMart. I have no idea if you have WalMart in India, I assume you might because WalMart is pretty global. He also makes sure to get high protein food sources. He eats tuna but only once or twice a week due to the mercury content tuna can contain. He eats a lot of lean chicken breast, fish and other lean meat sources. He does drink a lot of milk too. Beans and rice together are a good protein source. Go online and learn as much about nutrition as you can. I cant really tell you what to eat as I have no idea what you like and what kinds of foods are available in your household so learning about nutrition and what sources are good for protein is the better way for you to go. Increasing your fat intake will put weight on you but look for healthier sources of fat. Use olive oil or canola oils rather than animal source fats like lard.
He also does use creatine pills but you said you were not interested in that. I'm not sure how costly they are.
Good luck to you, as I say to my son, I wish I could give you some of my weight! People who are overweight have a hard time losing and think it would be great to try to gain weight. It is hard to think that some have trouble putting on weight and for them, to put on weight is just as hard as it is for some to lose weight! Try not to feel bad for your size. Honestly, others probably dont see your size as much as you are aware of it. You are still young and your metabolism is high. In another 20 years you will wonder what happened and be worried about gaining too much around the middle. My husband was very thin when we first met and he is a good sized guy now!
