What is weight gain

Weight gain is an increase in your body weight. This can be either an increase in excess fluids such as water, muscle mass, or fat deposits.

Our weight Gain Calculator is for people who want to increase their body weight. It is generally accepted that if you want to gain body weight, then you need to consume more calories (How to Count and Calculate Calories) per day than you burn. You can also gain weight by increasing the size of your muscles.

When on a weight gaining diet don't be tempted to add calories to your meals by choosing unhealthy foods such as french fries. You should still eat balanced meals with the correct amounts of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates - these figures are automatically calculated for you in our calculator.
