1.Keep a food diary.
Chart what and when you eat every day for several weeks to learn about your eating habits and identify places to add calories. Online programs like MyFitnessPal and Fitday can make tracking easy-peasy.
2. Add it up.
Try adding an extra 200+ calories a day in the beginning
4. Focus on quality, not quantity.
Even when you’re trying to gain weight, burgers, chips, and milkshakes all day (’err day) isn’t great for a body. Instead, choose nutrient-dense foods from all food groups, Good options include whole grains like whole wheat pasta, fruits and vegetables, nuts, and lean protein.
5. Eat more frequently.
And never skip meals! It’s easy to feel full fast when you start introducing more calories into each meal; changes in food intake might also bring on gastrointestinal issues and even acne. Make things easier on your belly by spreading calorie intake out over five to six smaller meals throughout the day.
6. Snack smart.
Choose calorie-dense snacks like nuts, cheese, dried fruits, yogurt with granola, avocados, and pretzels or whole grain crackers with nut butters or hummus. If leaving the house for a while, pack snacks for calories-on-the-go.
7. Drink it down.
Instead of diet soda and other low-cal drinks, choose filling, high-calorie beverages like smoothies, healthy shakes, or liquid meal replacements. Drink fluids in between meals to add calories and to avoid filling up on beverages during meals (which might make people eat less solid food).
8. Eat before bed.
Consider this your permission slip for the midnight munchies. A lot of healing and regeneration happens while we sleep, so eating before bed can give your body the nutrients it needs to do the work.
9. Set attainable goals.
And remember to be patient. Just like weight loss, weight gain is a process—and often a slow one, Cassetty says. Gaining might take years, so don’t give up hope if you don’t pack on immediate pounds. The rate at which a person needs to gain weight depends on their health goals and current health status, and a physician or nutritionist can help establish a reasonable goal weight. Signs of reaching an ideal weight include increased energy, stabilized hunger patterns, and overall good health.
10. Get support.
It’s important to have a strong support system throughout the process of gaining weight, Cassetty says, both to help gainers achieve their goals and to cope with the emotional issues that might arise from bodily changes.
11. Dress well.
Don’t put off feeling good about your appearance. Talk nicely to yourself and choose outfits that make you feel good
Eat fresh vegetables daily.
Avoid having sugar completely.
Eat whole wheat bread instead of white bread; avoid everything made from white flour and make whole wheat bread, chapattis and brown rice a way of life.
Do not skip a meal and eat three meals a day.
Drink plenty of water to eliminate the toxins from the system.
Limit your fat intake to 2-3 teaspoons a day.
Increase the fiber intake as it provides a sense of fullness and also prevents hunger pangs.
Take antioxidants for protecting the body against the toxins released during weight loss.
Exercise catalyzes your efforts to lose weight and even regular walking for thirty minutes can give you the benefits of an aerobics exercise.
To improve the metabolism, try increasing the duration, frequency, intensity of your daily workout.
Remember that maintaining the ideal weight is a lifetime commitment and not a short-term affair. Firmly believe that the pleasure of being trim and healthy is far better than the pleasure of eating unwisely.

You know green tea is good for you, but oolong and these other types of tea have.
A steaming cup of tea is the perfect drink for soothing a sore throat, warming up after a dip in the pool, or binge-watching Downton abbey. But certain teas are also perfect for doing something else helping you shed extra pounds.
Each of these 5 best teas for weight loss has its own individual, magic properties, from dimming your hunger hormones to upping your calorie burn to-literally-melting the fat that's stored in your fat cells. Oh, and they can also help reduce your risk of heart disease and diabetes too. (stick to 3-4 cups or tea bags of tea per day, and choose brewed varieties over bottled to avoid extra calories and sweeteners.)
Start with these five delicious varieties, and start losing weight through the magical powers of tea!
1. The metabolism booster: green tea
Drink this: Lipton, yogi
Because: it unlocks fat cells
Before a workout, turbocharge the fat-blasting effects by sipping a cup of green tea. In a recent 12-week study, participants who combined a daily habit of 4-5 cups of green tea each day with a 25-minute sweat session lost an average of two more pounds than the non tea-drinking exercisers. Thank the compounds in green tea called catechins, belly-fat crusaders that blast adipose tissue by triggering the release of fat from fat cells (particularly in the belly), and then speeding up the liver's capacity for turning that fat into energy.
2. The pound-a-week melter: oolong tea
Drink this: Bigelow, stash
Because: it boosts metabolism
Oolong, a Chinese name for 'black dragon,' is a light, floral tea that, like green tea, is also packed with catechins, which help to promote weight loss by boosting your body's ability to metabolize lipids (fat). A study in the Chinese journal of integrative medicine found that participants who regularly sipped oolong tea lost six pounds over the course of the six-week time period. That's a pound a week! it also has a calming effect. Drink a cup if you're a nervous flyer, or to calm yourself.
3. The cravings crusher: mint tea
Drink this: Tazo, Teavana
Because: it wards off the munchies
Fill a big teacup with soothing peppermint tea, and sniff yourself skinny! while certain scents can trigger hunger (a trick cinnabon figured out long ago), others can actually suppress your appetite. One study published in the journal of neurological and orthopedic medicine found that people who sniffed peppermint every two hours lost an average of five pounds a month. (although tea is relatively low in caffeine-about 25 percent of what a cup of coffee delivers-decaffeinated varieties are great to have on hand for a soothing bedtime treat.) consider also adding a few drops of peppermint oil to your pillow or burning a minty candle to fill the room with slimming smells. For a stress- and belly-free mind and body, alternate your regular tea with this mint tea.
4. The fat blocker: white tea
Drink this: twinings, the republic of tea, celestial seasonings sleepytime
Because: it prevents new fat cells from forming
White tea is dried naturally, often in sunlight, making it the least processed and richest source of antioxidants among teas (as much as three times as many polyphenols as green tea!). A study published in the journal nutrition and metabolism showed that white tea can simultaneously boost lipolysis (the breakdown of fat) and block adipogenesis (the formation of fat cells) due to high levels of ingredients thought to be active in human fat cells. If there's such a thing as a diet tea, this is it.
5. The hunger halter: rooibos tea
Drink this: celestial seasonings, Harney, and sons
Because: it regulates fat-storage hormones
Rooibos tea is made from the leaves of the 'red bush' plant, grown exclusively in the small Cederberg region of the south Africa, near cape town. What makes rooibos tea particularly good for your belly is a unique and powerful flavanoid called aspalathin. Research shows this compound can reduce stress hormones that trigger hunger and fat storage and are linked to hypertension, metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease, insulin resistance, and type 2 diabetes.
