Calories

Gaining weight is all about achieving and maintaining a calorie surplus – eating more calories than you burn. It takes an extra 3,500 calories to gain a pound, and to gain weight at a safe rate – 0.5 pound per week – you need to eat an extra 1,750 calories weekly, or 250 calories daily. For someone who has trouble digesting normal food, eating an extra 250 calories every day can be really hard. This is where drink wholesome can help. Adding a protein or meal replacement shake to your diet is an easy way to boost your calorie intake because:  

• It is easier to drink your calories than it is to chew them.

• It is easier to make a shake than it is to cook a meal.

• It is easier to digest a shake than it is to digest solid food, especially if you suffer from a digestive disease.

Protein

If you are looking not only to gain weight, but also to gain or maintain muscle mass, then you have to eat protein. Muscle growth can occur only if muscle protein synthesis exceeds muscle protein breakdown. This is called positive muscle protein balance, and is regulated by two mechanisms: resistance exercise and amino acid availability. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. There are 20 of them, 9 of which must come from food. In order to have enough amino acids to gain or maintain muscle mass, you must therefore eat lots of protein.

How much protein you need to eat depends on who you are, but the average person needs to eat 0.36 grams of protein per pound of body weight per day. This means that the average 150 pound person should eat 54 grams of protein. Some people need to eat more than 54 grams, however, a lot more. People with digest diseases, for example, may need to eat as much as 0.72 grams of protein per pound of body weight per day. For a 150 person, this is well over 100 grams of protein. Eating that much protein can be really hard, especially if you have trouble digesting normal food. Once again, this is where drink wholesome can help. Adding a protein or high protein meal replacement shake to your diet is an easy way to boost your protein intake because: 

• It is easier to drink your protein than it is to chew it.

• It is easier to make a shake than it is to cook a meal.

• It is easier to digest a shake than it is to digest solid food, especially if you suffer from a digestive disease.

Why drink wholesome?

Our protein powders and meal replacements are additive-free, dairy-free, and made with real foods, not protein isolates – 99% of supplements fail to meet at least one of these criteria. They are perfect for people with gut issues and sensitive stomachs, as well as for people just looking to boost their calorie or protein intake without the processing and added junk.
