Just like many ideas and options are available for weight loss regimes so are for weight gain and junk food is not the option. Drinking something colorful, cold and yummy for the tummy is better than cooking meals (though don’t skip meals, no) and weight gainer drinks are best for that and below I list the four core ingredients you should have in you drink and to make the whole process of transforming more fun and more realistic try to maintain a healthy diet and an exercise regime that is best suited for your body and you can find both these at Nutright which is there to help you on the “Pakistani fitness journey”.
Bananas are a rich source of fiber and are good for the tummy and are a core ingredient in many weight gain drinks specifically shakes. Even if you don’t have a taste for bananas do try to add them in your diet and drinks because they contain fiber, iron, potassium and some vitamins that are essential for the body and bananas don’t make you fat but do help you bulk up some mass. Keep consuming a banana shake or smoothie every day or few times a week and that needle on your weighing machine is going to move up some points.
Smooth or chunky doesn’t really matter as long as its peanut butter and you love it. This is one ingredient that out powers any other ingredients you choose to throw in the blender strictly for weight gain drinks. 1 heaping scoop of peanut butter can be around 100 calories in itself and since it contains a lot of fats, carbs, and protein it can serve as a substitute part of your diet when you wish to gain weight. Mix it up with some fruits or chocolate and maybe ice-cream (I haven’t tried that one) and chug in a whole glass.
Oats are an easy calorie add to your weight gainer shake. Oats contain many vitamins and positive health benefits that couldn’t possibly be covered here but what I can tell you is that they are very high in calorie content, contain fat, protein and essential carbs. Do grind them up into “Oat Dust” before putting them in the blender with any other ingredient of your choice cuz then you might spend the rest of the day picking out the pieces out of your teeth. Oats help in making the body fat so maybe it’s time to put that box or can of Quaker oats in the kitchen cupboard to use.
Ice does not have any calories nor does it have any outstanding health benefits, but that doesn’t make it any less important/ because ice is what makes summer time in Pakistan nice. I’m not talking about ice cream, just ice. Ask yourself would you drink a warm lassi or a thandi lassi? If you go to Daman-e-Koh for a brunch, then don’t ask the waiter for a “warm lassi” because then you might not be allowed in a public setting with the same people again. Plus, ice gives shakes and smoothies this really tempting texture and look that you can’t resist on a hot day.
If you google search the images of shakes and smoothies you might become tempted to make some of your own but keep in mind that the first few times your culinary creation might taste like crap but don’t let that stop you from going crazy in the kitchen, try different ingredients, go wild. Just don’t waste anything and express your inner craziness when amma is not home.
