If you think the only way to gain weight is by eating junk, freeze – there are so many healthy ways to gain weight!

Many people have to gain weight for various reasons, like a fast metabolism, eating disorder, or illness.

There are also people (my past self included) who are wondering how they are going to gain weight when they are allergic to so many different foods.

I actually found out I had food allergies right when I needed to gain weight, so I know from experience that it can be challenging to find healthy ways to gain weight.

That’s why I have gathered my tips to gain weight on a restricted diet while staying healthy.

1. Up Your Protein Intake

Building muscle is one of the many healthy ways to gain weight.2

Of course, if you are seriously malnourished, you are going to need to gain at least some fat in order to get your period back (if you are a woman).

To supplement weight lifting, increasing your protein intake will help you put on necessary weight from muscle.

If you have special dietary needs, this can be hard to do.2

Try these healthy protein sources: nutritional yeast, beans, nuts, seeds, quinoa, fish, sprouts, tempeh, and tofu.

Protein powders can be tricky, as many of them are loaded with added sugar, but I like Sun Warrior Raw Protein Blend sweetened with stevia.
