How to gain weight

If you have to reduce your calorie intake to lose weight, it's obvious that you have to increase your calorie intake to gain weight.

If you need 2000 calories per day to maintain your current weight and if you eat 2500 calories per day, you have 500 extra calories.

These excess 500 calories of energy will be stored in fat stores for future use and as a result you gain weight.

If you continue to eat 2500 calories per day for a week, you have 500 x 7=3500 extra calories which were stored as fat in your fat stores.

Since 3500 calories is the rough estimate for the energy contained in one pound of fat, now you have gained one pound of weight.
