5 Effective And Yummy Weight Gain Recipes

weight gain recipes

 Weight gain recipes is a term taken too lightly. When people think about weight gain food or recipes they don’t think about eating healthy or food rich in nutrition. They think about feeding their stomach because it’s more about gaining weight than being conscious about your health.

Many people trying to gain weight abuse their stomach with anything they can get their hands on. You can gain weight on a diet of healthy food that is just as delicious and effective for your weight gain propaganda.

We have also added a list of foods that you can consume for gaining weight after the recipes so that you shan’t have any shortage of variety.

# Food List for weight gain.

1. Banana:

We have already used this in at least 3 of our recipes in this post alone. It’s a rich source of energy for your body. You are not limited to just eating a banana.


You can try out various recipes that involve banana. As it covers the trifecta of being delicious, affordable and healthy it is one of the preferred weight gain fruit.

2. Rice:

If you have ever been on a steady diet of rice, you’d never deny that rice is one of the top foods to be consumed for gaining weight.

Not only does it have loads of calories but it even gives you energy. Adding it to your diet won’t make a dent in your budget as it is as affordable as any food can get.

3. Red meat and Salmon Fish:

If your interest is more in the area of building muscles then red meat recipes are the way to gain that weight.

And if that’s not enough it also has loads of calories that could lead to gaining weight.

With salmon fish or oily fish, you’ll have your protein and fats shot.

4. Nuts.

We have already seen a few recipes on this list that covers this particular food. They are a good source of the energy and calories.

Along with that, you can also try nut butter, and you don’t need anyone to tell you how butter always means fat.

5. Milk.

Builds your muscles as well as helps you gain weight. It is a good source of protein as well as fat. So, yeah it is healthy food anyway.

You must have been told to stay away from dairy products when on diet to lose weight. Fortunately, this is about gaining weight.

Let’s not forget all kinds of protein powder that is available in the market today. You can get them in flavors if you are tired of plain old vanilla. They are so many fruits and nuts combinations for you to try.
