The official “how to get thick” post.
I get this question a few times a week, so I took the time to write out this long ass post. If anyone ever asks again, I’m snapping necks.
Eating more calories than you burn is the key
Carry snacks. Snacks high in calories, and protein and/or carbs are best.
Eat foods high in good fats, carbs, and calories and vitamins. Avocados are a good example of a food high in good fat.
You might want to try weight gain shakes but if not you can create your own high-calorie concoctions with ice cream or frozen yogurt as throwing in things like peanut butter or chocolate and protein powders and such in there in the blender with it.
Get as many extra calories in there as you can, add condiments to your food whenever possible: gravy, ketchup, ranch, mayo, whatever.
Keep it healthy though and still stay active! Eating a bunch of junk food and not being active will get you nowhere you want to be.
Don’t eat foods that are “empty calories,” which means foods that are high in calories but have no good nutrition in them.
You can try appetite stimulants like Periactin, but you typically need a doctor to prescribe them and you definitely want to consult your doctor before you take anything like that.
Focus on weight training to tone and gain mass and put on good weight and prevent yourself from putting on “sloppy” weight.
Lift heavy weights while doing exercises that target the areas that you want to increase: hips, butt, thighs.
Examples: wall sits, split squats, lunges, side lunges, donkey kicks, fire hydrants, good mornings, deadlifts, calf raises.
You NEED to consume a shake or some food very high in protein and carbs within 2 or 3 hours of your workout.
You may also wish to do training to try to tone and whittle away at areas like your waist and lower back to accentuate the curviest of your other areas.
For your stomach, work your transversus muscles by doing exercise like the stomach vacuum and the open book. These can be easily googled.
For your lower back, try to exercise called the superman.
You still need to do cardio to keep a healthy blood flow and keep your heart working although you’re trying to gain weight.
OTHER TIPS -
Some swear by fish oil. They take a capsule of fish oil, empty the contents into their hands and simply rub it on their hips, booties and sometimes thighs. You add vitamin E to this mix to prevent cellulite, which the fish oil alone can sometimes cause. You leave it on for a minimum of a few hours, which is why you’re probably going to want the odorless fish oil if you decide to be brave and try this lol
Herbs. A lot of women use herbs to try to get a curvier figure. Amongst those taken are maca, aguaje, evening primrose oil, and saw palmetto.
Maca and aguaje generally seem to produce more results in the booty and hips while evening primrose oil usually shows an increase in bust and saw palmetto tends to cause more of a gain in the thighs.
Obviously, this will differ from person to person.
Research these and talk with your doctor before you start taking any.
A good foundation of muscle + a layer of fat on top makes the best booties.
