Unlocking the Power of Protein Shakes to Gain Weight

Adding mass or gaining weight can be just as challenging as losing weight for some people. It's especially true for those who have high metabolism rates or specific health conditions that make weight gain difficult. One effective method to help promote weight gain is incorporating protein shakes into your diet. Let's delve deeper into the world of protein shakes to gain weight and how TumLove's vegan and low FODMAP protein powder can play a pivotal role. We also have a neat blog on protein ice cream which is another fun way to incorporate protein in your diet.

Why Protein Shakes for Weight Gain?

Protein shakes can be a valuable tool in your weight gain arsenal because:
  • High in Protein: As the name suggests, protein shakes provide a hefty amount of protein which is essential for muscle growth and recovery.
  • Calorie Dense: They often contain a significant number of calories which can help you reach your daily calorie surplus needed for weight gain.
  • Easy to Consume: For those who struggle to eat large meals, liquid calories like protein shakes can be easier to consume and digest.
  • Versatile: You can easily mix other calorie-rich foods like nuts, seeds, fruits, or oats into your protein shake to further increase its calorie content.

Navigating Through Weight Gain with TumLove's Protein Powder


TumLove's protein powder offers numerous benefits for those looking to gain weight healthily:
  • High Protein Content: With a generous amount of protein per serving, this powder helps support muscle growth and recovery, essential for healthy weight gain.
  • Low FODMAP: The protein powder is low in FODMAPs, which can cause digestive discomfort in some people. It means you get all the benefits of a high-protein shake without the potential gut upset.
  • Vegan Friendly: This product is 100% vegan, making it a fantastic choice for those following a plant-based diet.
  • Delicious Flavor: Who said healthy eating couldn't be delicious? TumLove's protein powder comes in a rich chocolate flavor that's sure to satisfy your sweet tooth.

How to Make a TumLove Protein Shake for Weight Gain


Creating a weight-gaining protein shake using TumLove's protein powder is simple: Start with a base of your choice. This could be water, plant-based milk, or even yogurt for an extra protein punch. Add a serving of TumLove's Low FODMAP Gut-Friendly Protein Powder. Consider adding high-calorie extras like nuts, seeds, avocado, or coconut oil. Blend until smooth, and enjoy! Remember, while protein shakes can aid in weight gain, they should be part of a balanced diet alongside regular strength training for optimal results. Always consult with a healthcare professional or dietitian before starting any new dietary regimen.

Can I use protein shakes as meal replacements?

While protein shakes can be used as meal replacements in some cases, they should not replace all your meals. Real, whole foods contain a wide range of nutrients that can't be replicated in a shake. Always strive for a balanced diet.

How many protein shakes should I have a day to gain weight?

The number of protein shakes you should have per day to gain weight will depend on several factors, including your current weight, activity level, and overall calorie needs. It's best to consult with a dietitian or healthcare provider for personalized advice.

Can I take protein shakes without working out?

Yes, you can still take protein shakes without working out, especially if you're using them to help reach a calorie surplus for weight gain. However, to gain muscle mass, it's beneficial to pair high protein intake with strength training exercises. It's important to remember that while protein shakes can aid in weight gain, a healthy lifestyle and balanced diet remain paramount.
