Learn How to Gain Weight the Healthy Way with Ayo Van Elmar on a New Episode of “Eat Right Africa”



Adding weight is not often discussed because the number of people struggling to lose weight is often greater than the number of people trying to add weight in most African cities.

Besides, there are more health complications associated with being overweight than there are with being on underweight or hanging around the borderline of ideal weight/underweight.

Nonetheless, there is a significant number of Africans, who may not necessarily be predisposed genetically to high metabolic rates but yet struggle to add or maintain gained weight.

A common major trait among people who go to work and aren’t adding weight, though they can and would love to gain some four to five kilogrammes, is the reluctance to take a break from work, which then leads to long extended hours of hunger.

This episode discusses how to gain weight healthily.

    I struggle to eat twice a day, and now I’m supposed to eat 5-6 times a day (not including snacks). It is well.

      Including snacks, 3 meals and 3 snacks if you want to gain weight.

      You’re wrong Agu. Being underweight comes with its own unhealthy traits as well. For example, proneness to diseases and infections. Fat in the ideal amounts is healthy. That’s why there is an ideal weight theory and formulas for calculating the ideal weight in nutrition!
