How to Gain Weight with a Fast Metabolism

Hi, this is Andy Wilkinson from,
bringing you another video lesson on how to gain weight if you’re naturally skinny.
And in this video we’re answering the question: “How do you gain weight if you have a fast
or high metabolism?” And by “high metabolism”, we’re talking about
when your body burns energy very efficiently, you have a naturally thin or skinny body shape,
and you find it very difficult or tough to put on weight.
And the reason you need to know this is because, if you DO have a fast metabolism, you’re unlikely
to succeed in your weight gain goals simply by just trying to eat more food.
In fact, you may have tried this yourself, and realized how difficult and tough it is.
Instead, you need a plan that’s designed specifically for the needs of a fast metabolism.
Otherwise, you’re unlikely to gain the weight that you want, and you’re unlikely to achieve
the impressive weight and muscle gains that you’re really looking for.
You need a plan that’s designed specifically for the needs of a fast metabolism.
So, let’s take a look now at how you can gain weight if you have a fast metabolism.
Okay, so let’s get on with explaining how to gain weight with a fast metabolism.
You see, some interesting scientific discoveries were made in the 1990s, showing that:
Not only do skinny people tend to have higher concentrations of the ‘T3 Thyroid’ hormone
in their body – which is directly related to a high metabolism – But another study showed
that a lot of skinny people’s metabolism actually INCREASES in response to an increase in calories
in their daily diet. So in simple terms, if you just try to eat
more food, your body becomes even MORE efficient at burning up these calories.
And you experience little, if any, gains in weight.
So what can you do? Well interestingly, one of the keys to putting
on weight if you’re skinny lies in applying new ‘habits’ that NATURALLY affect your body’s
hormone levels, and make it easier to gain weight.
And there are about 4 key hormones you need to be aware of.
And the one we’re going to focus on in this video is TESTOSTERONE (which you’ve probably
already heard of, right?) So obviously, you need a better strategy
– a better plan – than simply trying to ‘eat more food’.
Now, Testosterone has what’s called an ‘anabolic’ – or ‘growth’ effect – in your body.
And Testosterone promotes protein synthesis, and the growth of muscle mass and strength.
And it also prevents muscle breakdown. So we really want to do everything we can
to BOOST and ELEVATE the levels of Testosterone in our bodies if we want to overcome a fast
metabolism, and gain healthy weight. So here are 5 quick tips you can use to naturally
boost your Testosterone levels: 1. Include Essential Fatty Acids in your diet.
And these are healthy fats that you’ll find in foods like avocados, oily fish like mackerel,
flaxseed oil, and nuts (like peanuts and almonds). 2. Lift Heavy Weights
And train with high intensity, that uses as much muscle as possible.
And this means generally doing Compound Exercises – what I call “Major Muscle Movements” –
like squats, deadlifts and bench presses. And if you don’t understand these exercises,
then we’ll cover more information about this in other videos.
But these exercises use a lot of muscles ALL AT ONCE.
3. Keep Your Rest Periods Short Keep your rest periods in your weight training
workouts short. This will help boost your testosterone levels as well.
4. Limit how much alcohol you consume. It has a negative effect on Testosterone levels.
5. Make sure you’re getting enough protein in your diet.
You want to be eating anywhere between 1 and 2 grams of protein each day for every kilogram
of body weight you have. And that translates to about 1 gram for every pound in body weight
you have. Okay, so that’s it. There you have it.
Those are 5 tips to raising your Testosterone levels NATURALLY to help you gain healthy
muscle weight when you have a fast metabolism. Okay, that brings us to the end of this video.

  1. the only stipulation I have, that I would actually like to hear other people's input on, is the short rest period. If doing heavy weight you are using creatine phosphate as your energy source, and using type 2B muscle strainds. creatine phosphate breaks the third phosphate bond to give your body the energy it needs in the form of ATP. So if you don't replenish your creatine phosphate levels between exercises your next set will be worse and the type 2B muscle you want won't grow hwo you want.

  21. I'm 24 and 5'10, weighing 120 lbs… I used to be 135 lbs a few years ago, but working retail jobs where I run around on my feet all day made me lose a fair amount of weight…then more recently my appetite dropped to almost nothing, I view eating as almost a chore or a task that I have to get done that's taking away from "more important" things that I need to do, like working on my projects and not procrastinating. I know this is an unhealthy mindset, but it's hard to shake off. I'm so busy that I feel bad about taking the time to eat anything. I'm always worried about my health lately, though, so I'm determined to at least get back up to 135 lbs.

  22. Well im 12 and i used to weight 122 lbs i think but i still looked skinny but 3 days later i weighted 80 something pounds lol
