Weight Gain Calculator – How Many Calories To Eat To Get Big?

8

Use our weight gain calculator to find out how many calories you need to gain weight and pack on some mass. You will also find out how many grams of carbohydrates, protein and fat you need to add extra weight to your physique. If you want to gain weight, you absolutely have to consume more calories than you burn. Remember, you need to eat big to get big. One pound of body weight is equal to 3,500 calories, so eating an extra 500 calories per day will cause you to gain one pound per week. Along with increasing your calories to gain weight, you should also increase your level of exercise in order to increase lean muscle mass.

  1. This site made it extremely easy to understand and there was no headaches like most sites. I have always had tremendous trouble gaining weight so I will be putting these results to the test. Thanks for your help!

  2. I like what I’m seeing. 2,475 in calorie intake is not bad. I thought it would be more to gain a pound for me. Thanks for the advice 🙂

      Hi Jabbar – Yes, one of the best high calorie foods that you can take with you anywhere are nuts! You can easily pack them in a small bag and they contain lots of healthy fats and a bunch of calories. By snacking on walnuts, almonds and Brazil nuts in between your regular meals, you will be able to easily add 500 to 1,000 calories to your daily intake.

      Hi Ankit – You can use the calculator on this page to find out the specific details. If you consume an excess of 500 calories per day then this will equal 1 pound per week (4 pounds per month).

    I want to gain weight. I am 19 years old and my height is 5 foot 11 inches and my weight is 50kg. How many calories should I eat daily? What type of foods are full of calories and easy to eat? I know gaining weight is a slow and long process. Can you help me?

      Hi Paras – Our weight gain calculator says you need 2,520 calories per day based on your stats. Focus on eating healthy fats like nuts which are very easy to carry with you during the day to snack on. A few handfuls of nuts in between your regular meals can add up to a lot of extra calories each day. Along with healthy fats, make sure your protein intake is high. Try carrying around a shaker bottle with you and add add your favorite whey protein powder along with some 4% milk to your shake. You can get a huge protein boost by drinking 2-3 of these shakes during the day.
