Time and health are two precious assets that we don't recognize and appreciate until they have been depleted II Denis Waitley


You may have gone through a lot of videos/articles that claim to increase you weight within one week by eating banana with milk but is this the truth ??
Now lets breakdown the fact that how do we gain weight/muscle. Gaining weight and gaining muscle are to completely different thing.You may gain weight by gaining fat or you may gain weight by increasing muscle mass.
Now lets consider a skinny guy of 50 Kg who wants to gain weight. We may first calculate his daily calorie expenditure on maintaining that weight , i want go into exact figures but lets consider 1700 Calories, Now this is the amount of calories he requires to maintain his weight.
In order to gain he needs to be in calorie surplus, Now this is where the banana and milk theory comes in , I have provided the calories and nutrient facts below.
  • 2 Banana -180 calories ( P-2.2gm , C-45.6gm,F-0.6gm)
  • 1 glass fat free milk(400ml)- 121 Calories( P-10.0 gm, C – 19.1gm, F-0.1gm
This comes up to roughly 301 Cal , now considering following this diet twice a day , you may increase your calorie intake by 602 Cal. Being in calorie surplus the body will either use it in the form of energy or convert the carbohydrates into fats and the protein into muscle., which leads to your weight gain.
Conclusion: Yes you do gain weight by adding banana and milk in your diet but it largely depends on the other meals you are taking. If you are not in calorie surplus your weight won’t increase but if you are maintaining a balance diet and adding banana and milk to it too you will definitely gain weight.

About Me

My photo
“Respect your body. It’s the only one you get.” My fitness journey started in 2015 when i completed my graduation, I was an underweight guy with a weight of 49 Kg and standing 5ft 10inch. Before 2015 for almost 5 years I was taking medicines on daily basis due to tapeworm in my brain which, the continuous consumption of medicine made my liver weak and this effected my growth. After finishing my degree ,I finally decided that I need to fix myself. Then I started working out and it changed my life. I didn't wanted to go to gym as i was skinny guy and lacked confidence, So I started with home workout (push ups pull ups) . I red articles, magazines, videos just to learn how to grow. In just 8 months without any coach or nutritionist I gained 20 Kg. This boosted my confidence a lot. Now Today I weigh 73 Kg a fit lean guy with max for Deadlifts: 330 lbs (2 Reps) Squat: 242 lbs (6 Reps) Bench: 209 lbs (6 Reps) I am still learning a lot and want to share what I have learned during my fitness journey. Lets learn and grow together.- love and peace
