4 Vegan Foods To Help Gain Weight
I am sure if you scour the internet you will see thousands of articles and instances where adopting a plant based diet has helped people lose weight FAST!! Putting on weight is simple science, eat more calories than you burn and you will put weight on. Howeve rwhen we first turned vegan losing weight was never our issue, it was putting weight on!!!
As this was our biggest struggle and the main reason we started Ve-POWER we have composed a list of the 5 best foods to help you pack on some size!!!!
All nuts are relatively high in calories and packed with nutrients. There are various types of nuts like almonds, walnuts, peanuts, pistachios, etc.One cup of sliced almonds has about 529 calories, 45 grams of fat (mostly unsaturated), 20 grams of carbohydrates, and 20 grams of protein.
All nuts, whether they are almonds, walnuts, peanuts, cashew nuts or macadamia nuts are calorie and nutrient dense. They also contain high levels of magnesium, calcium, and vitamin E which positively effects cholesterol levels.
Grains pack a double calorie punch. First, they can be high in calories themselves. Second, they're the foods that most people eat with high-calorie condiments. Quinoa is a healthy grain that doubles as a complete protein source, but it also contains a whopping 635 calories per cup.
Amaranth comes in at 729 calories per cup. The more common grains like corn, wild rice and brown rice contain a more reasonable 165 to 200 calories per cup. If you're trying to gain weight, plan your meals around a main dish of grains.
Avocados provide a number of health benefits due to being a rich source of healthy fats (monounsaturated, meaning they help reduce blood cholesterol), fibre, vitamins (Vitamin C, helping to boost your immune system) and minerals.
While the health benefits above should be incentive enough to eat more avocados, there are additional benefits for those looking to bulk up or add additional weight to their frame.
Due to the fact that avocados are high in healthy fats they are also high in calories, with an average avocado containing over 200 calories.
The reason avocados are so high in calories is because dietary fat is more than twice as calorically dense as protein and carbohydrates. (Each gram of fat you consume is equal to 9 calories, where as 1 gram of protein and carbs is equal to 4).
If you are interested in adding a few extra pounds, avocados are definitely worth considering adding to your diet. They are a versatile fruit, perfect for adding additional calories to your meals.
