Let’s discuss how to use myfitnesspal to gain weight. I’ll be using this strategy over the next several months to hopefully add some lean tissue.
Step 1 to gaining weight is to check your weight. You’re going to need this to find your maintenance calories.
Step 2 to your bulk is to download myfitnesspal and track your food for a week. You don’t need to listen to what myfitnesspal prescribes to you, instead just track. At the end of the week check your weight again, if you didn’t gain or lose anything significant, then the average caloric intake over the course of your week and that’s your maintenance.
Step 3 to gaining weight using myfitnesspal is to add 15% more calories to your baseline and ride that out for 2 weeks. If you’re gaining weight, ride it out for another 2 weeks. If you’re not gaining weight or you stall out move to step 4.
Step 4, whenever you want to gain weight faster, just add 10% on top of your new maintenance level of calories, and continue the process until you’re at the size you want.
This is the step by step guide on how to use MyFitnessPal to gain weight.
