How to Gain Weight - and Musclehealthy weight gain diet).
Detoxify and get the digestive system working optimally
There are many good sources of digestive enzyme supplements available today. I have a very good product from plant sources which functions over a wider pH range than animal-derived enzymes and is contained in vege-caps. Also see the books listed in the weight gain links and resources section.
Lifting weights or other weight-bearing exercise sends a signal to your body something like: "These muscles are getting called upon to do work that they are barely capable of doing. It's time to bring out some materials and build them up a little to handle this load the next time he tries this."
There is lots of information about weight lifting technique without repeating it here except to mention a few points that would especially relate to the theme of weight gain tips.
Do not use the high protein supplements that are promoted for bulking up. The excess protein (especially that from animal sources) is not needed to add muscle. A bull is big and strong and gains all his muscle eating grass! Excess protein contributes to an over-acid body and is hard on the kidneys and leaches calcium (an alkaline substance) out of your bones to neutralize the excess acid.
Be sure to exercise the legs and buttocks. These contain the largest muscles in the body and so exercising them properly will result in the most weight gain. Plus exercising these largest muscles can produce a general body reaction that can contribute to an overall increase.
To achieve weight gain, muscles need to be worked with sufficient resistance for sufficient duration to send the right signal to the body. That means to the point the weight cannot be lifted and then keep trying to lift it anyway for 10 seconds beyond the point of fatigue. Getting weight-bearing exercise is a weight gain tip that can't be ignored if you want to do it in a healthy way.
A couple of miscellaneous weight gain tips regarding exercising for weight gain:
Sun exposure and exercising in the sun is reported to contribute to increased muscle mass. You just want to avoid excessive exposure and burning.
Deep breathing exercises
"All deep breathing exercises are body-building exercises. This is because oxygen is the invisible food, the life-giving miracle force of the body's 75 trillion cells and the vital food. These exercises will help build up a person who is underweight and trim down and person who is overweight." (Bragg and Bragg, Super Power Breathing p.55)
