Re: Hypercaloric Diet
Hi nunees, and welcome to MT.
You don't need a 'hypercaloric' diet. Just eat right. I imagine your diet must be pretty poor to weigh 50kg, so just by consuming about 2500 cals per day, you will gain, if not increase it. You then increase this as your weight gain starts to level.
The problem you may have is building an appetite, although this should improve as you start to train. You may find it easier to eat smaller meals frequently (5 to 7 times per day). These can be large snacks between your meals.
The key is consistency. You need to maintain the same calorie intake every day (even when not training, the lack of a post workout shake will reduce the calories enough without reducing food intake). You see so many individuals who struggle to gain weight who claim they eat loads. In reality they may have the odd binge day but then eat about 1500 cals per day for the next few days.
Remember to eat breakfast every day, and have a protein shake or natural yogurt with some peanut butter before bed.
