Gaining Weight: How Long

Gaining weight is an individual process. Some people will have less difficulty putting on weight than others. Remember that gaining weight fast is not practical. Gaining weight at the rate of 2-3 pounds a week is a sensible. By adding 1000 calories a day to your required calorie need, you can gain 2-3 pounds in a week. If you seem to be gaining weight at a faster rate, you may want to eliminate some calories or fats. Slow and steady is the way for healthy weight gain.
