Let us begin.
1. The #1 Mistake Women Make When Trying to Gain Weight
Every single woman I know that is trying to gain weight has made this mistake.
The mistake is this:
Many people think that in order to gain weight, all they need to do is eat more food.
The idea goes something like this.
- If I want to lose weight, I need to eat less.
- Therefore, since I want to gain weight, I just need to eat more.
Sounds logical but it’s a mistake.
A very big mistake.
Yes, it is true that you have to eat more to gain weight but that’s not the whole story.
If you simply eat more and stop there, you will probably end up with issues like
- Increased lower belly fat
- Chubbier cheeks and unfortunately,
- Not much improvement in the areas that you were hoping to improve – like the butt, legs, and thighs.
To gain weight, you do get to eat more but you can’t stop there.
There’s a secret you have to add to the mix.
Which leads me to my next point.
#2. The #1 Secret You Need to Know to Gain Weight
If you want to gain weight, you must understand this secret.

This is the secret.
Now, you might be wondering:
What is resistance?
Resistance is anything that makes your exercise more difficult over time.
Resistance is important because it is what tells your body that you want to be toned not just bigger.
It’s what tells your body to keep it right and tight not loose and flabby.
Side note: there is nothing wrong with being loose, big or flabby if that’s your goal.
You are so much more than your body and how you look!
All of this information is to help women that want to transform into a fitter, curvier body.
Ok. Let’s quickly recap what we’ve covered so far.
You now know that to gain weight, you have to
- eat more and
- exercise with resistance
So let’s talk about what you should be eating
#3. What to Eat to Gain Weight
For most people, all that is needed to gain about 1/2 a pound a week is just 200 extra calories per day.
Are you surprised?
Of those 200 calories, you should make sure that the majority of your calories come from protein.
Protein is what tells your body to help you get toned and curvy.
The subject of protein is extremely important for gaining weight.
It’s also far too broad to cover in this short post.
But I think it’s enough to say here that protein is your friend.
You should aim to eat about 1 to 1.5g of protein per pound of your body weight per day.
So if you currently weight 110lbs, that would be 110g - 165g of protein per day.
That’s a lot of protein.
The remainder of your calories can be split however you like between fat and carbs.
#4. What Can You Do Today
