Healthy Gains

Need to add extra pounds on a slight frame? Here’s a sensible way to do it.

By Lisa James

Like the late Rodney Dangerfield, Americans who are underweight don’t get any respect. The numbers explain why: While two-thirds of the US population is overweight, only 1.8% qualifies as underweight.

People need to gain pounds for a number of reasons. Some have fast metabolisms that quickly burn calories. Others engage in strenuous activities. Still others have eating disorders or chronic illnesses such as cancer.

Lammersfeld says CTC recommends a standard weight-maintenance diet consisting of balanced meals with complex carbs, whole produce, lean protein and low-fat dairy. She suggests consuming an additional 200 to 500 calories a day by eating every two to three hours. “I tell people the easiest way to do it is to add one serving from each of the food groups,” she says. “That should allow you to gain a pound a week.” Foods rich in both calories and nutrients include nut butters (almond, peanut, cashew), trail mix, protein shakes made with high-calorie ingredients such as bananas, kefir, low-fat cheese and avocados (including gua...
