Many women search for effective and healthy weight gain methods.
Maca Root is a natural root vegetable native to Peru that has helped some women achieve their weight gain goals. Maca is said to have many benefits including an increase in stamina, energy, and fertility. Its also known to regulate hormone imbalance and promote weight gain.
Things You'll Need
Research Maca brands and chose the one that you feel is best. There are many to chose from, so make sure its from a reputable company with an established website. Maca is also sold at Whole Foods, Vitamin Shoppe, and iherb.com. It comes in capsules and powder form. I purchased gelatinized Maca capsules by Navitas Naturals so the following steps will apply to capsule consumption.
Once you purchase your Maca take 2-3 capsules throughout your day. This is not since excessive Maca is a food and not a supplement. I recommend that you begin with two capsules for 2 weeks then progress to 3 capsules. After consuming Maca for 4 weeks take a one week break.
Put together a basic exercise program that will promote muscle growth. In order to see true muscle growth, lift heavier weights with lower repetitions. Limit cardio activities to 25-30 minutes with moderate speed. Exercise 2-3 times per week. The consumption of Maca actually contributes to muscle gain!
Though Maca will increase your appetite, Do not eat excessively. Eat healthy high calorie foods throughout your day. Whole grain bread, potatoes, soy milk, and wheat pasta are great additions to your diet. Adding a protein shake or Ensure drink to your meal plan is also beneficial.
Once you achieve your desired weight gain results, can discontinue Maca consumption. Great Luck and Healthy Living!
