How to Weight Gain Like Alone Australia’s Mike Atkinson

The majority of athletes who come to see Precision Athletica’s Sports Dietitian’s are looking to maintain a healthy weight or build muscle to support their training.

It was a very different request made by Mike Atkinson, a soon to be contestant on the hit SBS Reality TV show, Alone Australia.

Alone Australia Mike Atkinson Weight Gain

Mike, a former pilot and now survival specialist, was two months away from entering the brutal solo-survival show, when he first reached out to our Head Dietitian, Atlanta Miall (not that he could tell her exactly what show he was going on).

Knowing that he would likely be going without food on this survival journey he knew weight gain would be critical to his success and that he needed to pack on a lot of weight in a very short period of time.

For somebody as active as Mike, it’s not as straightforward as you might imagine to stack on the kg’s, and it’s critical to do it in the healthiest way possible.
