10 Tasty Homemade Weight Gain Shake Recipes with High Calories

Weight gainers should know that protein is one of the three essential nutrients in your diet. The others are carbohydrates and fats. Protein is essential for building and repairing damaged muscle tissues. Though protein is not a primary energy source like carbohydrates it is essential to building mass.

When looking to make quick inroads in gaining weight, a few protein based quick weight gain shakes a day can help you gain weight very quickly, especially when combined with exercise. They’re easy to mix and often they can taste pretty delicious too. If each weight gain shake was approximately 750 calories, drinking 2 shakes per day means 1500 calories you are consuming in your diet. Many types of homemade protein shakes for weight gain are possible with varied ingredients. Not only it is cost-effective, their purity is also guaranteed.

Don’t think liquid meals as a substitute for eating normal food. They should be used in addition to eating the normal 5-6 other meals you have in the day, which makes the time that you consume the weight gain shakes very important. Drink a shake after breakfast so you don’t feel too full for the rest of the day, as well as post workout when the muscles really need the nutrients.
