I am 24 years old and 50 kg in weight. how can I gain weight by doing gym and I am a vegeterian? Also suggest me protein powder?

Hey there,

Eat more calories

This involves some calculation. The approximate normal daily caloric requirement for an average male who performs light activity is 2,200; for a female, it is 1,900.You need to eat around 1,000 extra calories per day to gain less than half a kilogram

Do the math. Eat larger portions and eat at least five meals a day.

Your actual caloric requirement can differ depending on your height, weight, activity level and your body's metabolic rate.

Make smart choices

For example, choose dairy products, Choose eggs over vegetables.

Eat foods with high protein content such as beans, pulses and peas, and foods with high starch content such as potatoes, rice and sweet potato etc.

Protein is important

Increase your protein intake. Your body needs a lot of protein to build new muscle. But since most of the calories for weight gain comes from carbohydrates and fats, do not replace them with protein.

Snack a lot

Consume a lot of high-calorie snacks (not junk food) such as cheese sticks, milk shakes, muffins, dried fruits, yoghurt and breakfast bars

Fluids help too

Drink a lot of fluids that supply nutrients and calories; milk, fresh fruit juices and energy drinks are good examples.

Intensify workouts

Aerobics are great, right? Not for weight gain!

You need to exercise really hard and intensely to gain muscle mass.

Weights are the way to go

Focus on free weight exercises (which do not require machinery) that target your large muscle groups. For example, you need dumbells, not fancy gym machines.

Free weights put the most stress on muscles and stimulate the maximum number of muscle fibres.

The best weight training exercises for building muscle mass are free weight exercises like squats, dead lifts, bench presses, barbell rows, pull ups and bar dips.

These exercises are best done under supervision, but they don't need machinery.

Space out your workouts

If you have a high basic metabolic rate -- which means you expend a lot of energy even at rest -- you need short intense workouts instead of long periods of low-stress activity

Focus more on compound exercise

If you wanna gain focus more on compund exercise such as deadlift squats bench press overhead press or military press etc. Because they target more muscle

Protein Powder

Now coming yo your second point protein powder . Don't rely on such fellow things if you are capable of having protein from food why to take supplement ( as their name suggests supplement not food they are supplement ). You can egg ,paneer,tofu, soyabean ( limited quantity) oats almond etc.

If you want i can give you a list of vegetarian food or you can say diet plan

Hope it helps you i am trying hard please follow and upvote me.

I don't certify any facts they are based on my knowledge and internet research

Thank you


What is a safe amount of casein protein powder intake?

Keep in mind that if you eat any milk product you are taking Casein. Casein constitutes 80% of milk protein, rest 20% is whey. Considering the fact that infant survives only on milk, you can safely eat Casein. Going by my own daily food intake, I get about 100 grams of protein each day from milk. So 80

Is an egg per day too much for a child aged 12?

Is an egg per day too much for a child aged 12?I presume you are asking because of the cholesterol levels found in eggs. If that is the case, you need not worry. Cholesterol levels are only 25% due to diet, and even when the
