Use your time at home to graze regularly. Several small meals and snacks may seem more manageable than three large meals. Dried fruits, seeds, cheese and nut butter are nutritionally rich and calorie dense. Snack on a 1/4 cup of raisins for about 110 calories; spread 2 tablespoons of peanut butter on a medium banana and consume almost 300 calories; and have an ounce of cheddar cheese with just seven woven wheat crackers for 233 extra calories. Add one or all of these snacks daily to pile on a pound in a week.

Hello, lybrate-user, you need to gain much more weight. You are under weight and the proof of it is as you have mentioned you don't have enough muscle mass. Once you gain muscle you will automatically loose excess fat. Consume high protein yet nutritious and balanced diet, have 8 hrs. Of sound sleep, avail small amount frequent feed and continue regular physical exercise.

To gain weight you should eat more calories than you burn. Plus not only you have to eat calorie dense food but you have to keep in mind that what you are eating is healthy too. In the process of weight gain you do not want to put weight in an uneven manner and look unhealthy rather than looking bright and healthy.  1. Start with changing your lifestyle. Start working out if you are not active. The biggest myth that prevails now a days is that thin people do not need to work out. This is wrong. When you challenge your body, it is forced to grow. But this growth can only be possible if you are eating enough food to let the body absorb and grow in size and muscles. 2. Eat Healthy – Stop drinking and smoking too much if you are indulged in it. Limit your intake of junk food, pepsi, sugary stuff etc. Do not at all starve yourself. Make it a habit to eat something healthy every 3 hours. This means you have to eat 6 small meals in a day.  Your Daily food intake should ideally consist of –  a. Have plenty of nuts, dry fuits and seeds. Almonds, walnuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, figs, dates and raisins. They are full of healthy fats needed by a human body. b. Good amount of fruits and vegetables – Bananas, apples, pomegranate, green leafy vegetables. Fruits and vegetables helps in absorption of food in the body and together, completes your daily nutrition need. c. If you are a non- vegetarian - Eat eggs, chicken etc. d. Eat whole grains – Try to have multi grains spread throughout the day. Wheat, brown rice, oats, bajra, daliya etc should be taken in multiple meals in a day. e. Eat Sprouts – Chana and moong which are full of protein and nutrients. f. You can supplement your diet with good quality multi-vitamin capsules. If you are lacking in protein, you can buy a high quality whey protein and have it with banana shake twice a day.  g. You can take natural food items like wheat grass which is full of essential nutrients which helps in weight gain. Try to be patient while you are on the process of weight gain. Results take time to show. Just follow this regimen and you will soon start seeing the results.

During the gym lot of nerves on my body can be easily seen aur nerves nahi dikhne k leya kya karna hoga. Please reply.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hi, those are not nerves but superficial veins (blood vessels). Veins often bulge during exercise but then diminish once you are at rest. During exercise, arterial blood pressure increases, forcing the plasma from the blood to pool around the muscles and causing the muscles to swell and harden. As a result, the veins are pushed toward the surface of the skin, making them appear more prominent. The appearance of the veins in your hands may also become more pronounced if you lift weights because your muscles are larger and harder, which also works to push the veins to the surface of the skin.

It usually takes around 6 - 9 months to get back to routine. You have to undergo proper physiotherapy before you can go to your routine. Closed chain exercises helps. Once your knee feels stable after this then you can pretty much do what you want including running and jogging.

Mr Santosh Kumar, Feeling tired without any known reason can be a symptom of diabetes. If you have a family history of T2 DM, it is better to get a blood sugar check up done. That will help in clearing the doubt. Apart from feeling tired other symptoms include excess urination, excess thirst, excess hunger and unexplained weight loss. So please a detailed blood check done.

Beans are rich sources of fiber, protein and carbohydrates. These are one of the best calorie-dense foods that helps put on weight. Beans can be eaten as a snack or can be included in breakfast, lunch or dinner. There are several varieties of beans like red beans, black beans, soy beans, lima beans, lentils, and kidney beans. Alternatively, you can also prepare bean soup or bean salad. For quick results, eat them daily for one or two months.

What are the benefits for drinking beer and harmful for drinking beer. Because I too consume beer a lot.

What are the benefits for drinking beer and harmful for drinking beer. Because I too consume beer a lot.
Hi lybrate-user eat before you drink when your stomach is empty, alcohol is absorbed quickly, which means you'll feel the effects within minutes. But eating something rich in lean protein and/or good fat, which are both digested and absorbed slowly, creates a buffer. So to curtail your tipsiness, nibble on something like a golf ball-sized portion of nuts, or fresh guacamole with veggies before you take your first sip count your drinks correctly if you count one drink as one of what you're served, you may be greatly underestimating your intake. Technically, 12 oz of light beer (one bottle or can), 5 oz of red or white wine (a little smaller than a yogurt container), and 1 shot of liquor all pack about the same amount of alcohol, and each contains roughly 100 calories. But one study found that wine and liquor served at restaurants are about 40% larger than these standard drink portions. Another report, out last week, found that beer and wine contain higher alcohol levels these days, so when you order a drink out, you may be getting 50% more alcohol than you think. In addition, if you order a pint of beer (16 oz), you'll get four extra ounces than one standard drink, and then there are mixed drinks that contain more than one shot (like those illustrious long island iced teas!). The lesson: if you underestimate your intake, you may be far tipsier than you think. That means not only more alcohol calories than you counted on, but also a loosier goosier state of mind than may seriously affect your appetite. Slim down your drink order if you're a beer drinker, the type you order can have a big impact on your nutritional bottom line. A bottle or can of ultra low carb beer contains about 3-4 grams of carbs. But a regular version packs at least 10 grams, about as much as 10 mini pretzels. That means three a week adds up to an extra 1, 560 grams of carb per year, the equivalent of nearly five loaves of bread. Drinks made with mixers are even bigger carb and calorie traps. Just four ounces (a half cup), of a sweetened mixer will cost you a whopping 25 grams of carb (about 14 gummy bears worth), and decadent drinks like a mudslide can contain over 500 calories, more than the amount a slice of chocolate cake. Slow your pace one of the biggest culprits in alcohol-driven overeating is getting too tipsy, too fast. To slow down the rise in your blood alcohol level, order a tall glass of water with every alcoholic drink. Alternate sips, and be sure to finish at least 12 ounces of h2o for every cocktail. This simple strategy may cut your total consumption in half. Prevent mindless munching if you're at a bar with free happy hour apps, or one that serves up goodies, like popcorn or nuts, turn your back on the free fare, or place them out of arm's reach. Research shows you'll mindlessly munch if food is right in front of you, without even realizing it, and even if you aren't hungry. But if it's out of sight, you're much less likely to seek it out. Pre-plan your post-drink meal alcohol can indeed act as an appetite stimulant. And we all know it lowers inhibitions. So if you don't want to give in to eating things you wouldn't touch if you were sober, create a pre-drinking strategy. Stash something in your bag, like an all natural energy bar, so you won't grab a greasy slice of pizza. Or scope out restaurants nearby where you're going out, so if your friends want to grab a bite, you can suggest a spot where you know you can order a healthier option. Finally, strategically place some light snacks within sight at home, like pre-popped organic popcorn on the countertop, or cut fruit and fresh veggies and hummus front and center in the fridge. If you get a case of the munchies before bed, you're much more likely to grab what's readily available, rather than digging for something like chips or cookies.

Dear , exercising is good, but too much protein is not suggested. If you have wheat allergy, you have to avoid wheat containing products. It is good that you are having apple and banana. But I do not recommend non veg sources of protein like egg or meat. Kindly go for vegetable protein which is safer and healthier. Lentils, pulses are some sources of vegetable protein. But be careful and avoid wheat.

Is there any benefit of having hot turmeric water in the morning in an empty stomach?

Is there any benefit of having hot turmeric water in the morning in an empty stomach?
Hye. Thankyou for the query. Firstly no food or remedy works in isolation. If your basic diet and lifestyle is not right then no food or remedy will give you full benefits. Although turmeric as our regional cooking style dictates is anyway a part of our diet and that is very good. You can add turmeric in milk, healthy snacks or in cooked foods and it will still benefit you but to see specific results you need to first work on your basic diet and improve lifestyle.
