In this file, you’ll find some ways to increase and decrease your weight in order to achieve fitness for defense forces level.

Weight Gain Tips 
Being underweight is defined as having a body mass index (BMI) below 17.5. Here are some tips to get your BMI above 17.5.

Eat More Calories Than Your Body Burns: 

You need to eat more calories than your body burns in order to gain weight. Aim for 300-500 calories per day above your maintenance level, or 700-1000 calories if you want to gain weight fast. 

Eat Lots of Protein: 

Protein forms the building blocks of your muscles. Eating sufficient protein is required to gain muscle weight instead of just fat. Here are some energy-dense foods that are perfect for gaining weight: 

a) Nuts: Almonds, walnuts, macadamia nuts, peanuts, etc. 
b) Dried fruit: Raisins, dates, prunes and others. 
c) High-fat dairy: Whole milk, full-fat yogurt, cheese, cream. 
d) Fats and Oils: Extra virgin olive oil and avocado oil. 
e) Grains: Whole grains like oats and brown rice. 
f) Meat: Chicken, beef, pork, lamb, etc. Choose fattier cuts. 
g) Tubers: Potatoes, sweet potatoes and yams. 
h) Dark chocolate, avocados, peanut butter, coconut milk, granola, trail mixes. 

Lift Heavy Weights and Improve Your Strength: 

In order to make sure that the excess calories go to your muscles instead of just your fat cells, then it is absolutely crucial to lift weights. Go to a gym and lift, 2-4 times per week. Lift heavy, and try to increase the weights and volume over time. 

Eat more often: 

Squeeze in an additional meal or snack whenever you can, such as before bed. 

Drink milk:

Drinking whole milk to quench thirst is a simple way to get in more high-quality protein and calories. 

Try weight gainer shakes: 

If you are really struggling, then you can try weight gainer shakes. These are very high in protein, carbs and calories. 

Use bigger plates: 

Definitely use large plates if you are trying to get in more calories, as smaller plates cause people to automatically eat less. 

Add cream to your coffee:

This is a simple way to add in more calories. 

Take creatine: 

The muscle building supplement creatine monohydrate can help you gain a few pounds in muscle weight. 

Get quality sleep: 

Sleeping properly is very important for muscle growth. 

Eat your protein first and vegetables last: 

If you have a mix of foods on your plate, eat the calorie-dense and protein-rich foods first. Eat the vegetables last. 

Don’t smoke: 

Smokers tend to weigh less than non-smokers, and quitting smoking often leads to weight gain. 

Use Figs: 

Take 2-3 figs (Injeer) and soak them in cold water overnight. Eat the water-soaked figs in the morning on empty stomach along with the water. 


Have banana & dates milk shake twice a day, daily.  16. Walk: Walk daily for 30 minutes
