The key to gaining weight is to realise that a women’s weight gain plan is different to a man’s.
- Not only do you need to take in extra calories
- But a bit of exercise is very important -so you gain it in the right place
Why is a Women’s plan so different ?
Because for women your natural body shape is very important
The reason is that your body tends to put on weight first in places that come most natural.
Hence if you want to gain weight & get a nice shape then your plan need to reflect this.
The Women’s 3 Step Weight Gain Plan..
The most successful way to gain weight is use a 3 step plan:
- Add extra calories
- Help your body convert these in extra weight
- The right exercise to get a great shape
Taking these in turn
Step 1 – Extra Calories
Weight Gain shakes are very, very effective
The key advantage of using shakes or smoothies (as opposed to just eating lots) is that:
So you don’t have to worry about calorie counting, changing what you eat, etc.
- The best shakes will contain exactly the right level & type of calories
- That are quickly absorbed into your body
- And are very quick & easy to make.
But don’t drink protein shakes
If you just want to gain weight then you need to use the shakes for extra calories and not for protein.
This is very important because many ‘so called’ weight gain shakes are designed for people who are training in the gym and simply don’t have the right type of ingredients if you just want to fill out and ‘look less thin’.
That is why it’s so important to use the right type of shake.
The advantage of the Herbalife shakes is that they contain exactly the right type of extra calories to help you gain weight.
Step 2 – Convert these into extra weight
In addition the way your body convert food into extra weight has a major impact on your results.
Generally speaking the healthier your lifestyle (plenty of fresh fruit & veg, water, etc.) the better your absorption rates.
Boosting absorption can often be the fastest way to gain weight – either by changing your lifestyle or adding specialised tablets.
Which is why the shakes we use – in addition to extra calories – are also crammed full of vitamins & minterals.
And in addition our complete plans include specialised tablets designed to help provide you with exactly the right type of extra nutrients.
Step 3 – The right exercise for your Body Shape Type
This is where your plan will be different from a man’s one.
If you want to gain weight & also get a great shape then you need to use a plan designed for your natural shape.
There are 3 Body Shapes for Women:
- Upper – When you gain weight it will appear in your Face, neck, chest and waist – but you might still have skinny legs
- Lower – You are at danger of gaining it on hips and thighs and not your upper body i.e. thin arms
- Proportionate – Where you will gain weight all over.
How to get a great shape
The starting point is to identify your natural shape – which is often based on genetics (i.e. looking at the shape of your mother or grandmother sometimes helps)
If you are not sure then the easy option is to start following a weight gain diet plan – and then add the right type of exercise if and when needed.
