Hi lybrate-user weight problem is one of the most common problems that affect millions of people. Approaching nutritionists and gym instructors for effective weight loss plans are effective fixes for this problem. Strangely, just like weight gain, people do struggle to gain a few pounds. It has been medically proven that being underweight too can cause severe health problems. Usually, people tend to think that following a weight gain diet is completely doable. But that is not completely true. It requires the same amount of control and will power as one would need while following a weight gain diet plan, which recommends the intake of high-calorie foods. The idea of a weight gain diet is to put on healthy weight and steer clear of saturated fats. Let us take a look at a few weight gain foods that could change your lives the natural way. Whole milk milk is an important beverage for the most of us. From a creamy cup of coffee to a healthy bowl of oatmeal/ cereals soaked in milk, there are several ways of enjoying this essential source of nourishment. While a weight gain diet plan would not require you to give up on milk, you will have to switch from fat-free or skim milk to whole milk. It is high in essential nutrients, vitamins and contains healthy calories. One glass of whole fat milk contains 3.25% fat and 150 calories. It nourishes your body and helps you gain weight faster. Cheese if you love cheese, then stick to it. Cheese is rich in calories, healthy nutrients, and vitamins. It supplements your body with enough protein and calcium to build stronger bones. Being a milk product, cheese has a high fat content, which helps to gain weight. Try out different types of cheese and use them in your food for garnishing or as a dip. Butter another essential ingredient that can be included in your diet while on a weight gain regime is butter. It is rich in good saturated fats and nutrients that help you to gain weight faster. Also, powerful fatty acids and vitamins make sure you are in the pink of health always. However, you need to monitor the intake saturated weight gain foods as too much intake could add to cholesterol. So, layer your toasts with some butter and enjoy every bite. Dried fruit and nuts the perfect food items to snack on while on a weight gain diet are wholesome nuts and other dried fruits. Full of nutrients and healthy fats, dried fruits and nuts provide you with essential fiber and vitamins. Add almonds, walnuts, or pecans to your daily diet. Include them in your cereals during breakfast or add them to your salads for a nice crunch. Potatoes carbohydrates are an essential part of your diet when you want to gain weight. The best source of carbohydrates is potatoes. They are rich in fiber, vitamins and proteins too. It is recommended to eat potatoes with their skin, as the skin is a rich source of protein. Add them to your main course or have them as a side dish to ensure healthy weight gain. Eggs eggs make a perfect breakfast item, especially if you are on a weight gain plan. Whisk up an omelet or scrambled egg for a quick meal and get nutrients in a jiffy. Egg yolk is known for the healthy cholesterol and essential nutrients it contains. Packed with omega-3 fatty acids and protein, eggs are the perfect wholesome weight gain foods. Pasta bring an exotic twist to your weight gain diet with some pasta. Rich in fiber, starch and carbohydrates, pasta is the answer to all your underweight issues. Available in many shapes and sizes, pastas can be made in a variety of recipes. Add chicken or vegetables to increase its nutritional properties. Lean red meat good news for meet lovers! you can relish the different preparations of lean red meat while on a weight gain diet. Rich in proteins and other nutrients, red meat adds to your weight faster. It is recommended to opt for lean cuts. So, keep lean red meat on the top of your shopping list the next time you buy weight gain foods. Also read: benefits of drinking hot water peanut butter enjoy your snack times with scrumptious peanut butter toast. Peanut butter is an ideal choice from weight gain foods for people striving to put on weight. It is loaded with fats and protein, adding some healthy calories to your weight. While selecting your peanut butter, make sure it does not contain sugar. It is recommended to opt for more natural or organic peanut butter. Fruits fruits are weight gain foods that are perfect for in-between meals. When following a weight gain regime, one can eat sugar-rich fruits like mangoes, avocados, bananas, and pineapples. Offering you essential nutrients and energy, these fruits are a must-add to your daily diet. Conclusion underweight people can now attain a healthy body by incorporating the above-mentioned food sources in your weight gain diet.

You have mentioned backache as your problem. If you have only localized backache with no other associated symptoms like radiating leg pain, numbness, paresthesias etc, and no systemic symptoms like fever, loss of appetite, loss of weight etc, my advice to you for initial 2-3 weeks will be: - to maintain proper posture while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or even tab paracetamol which suits you - intensive physical therapy initially under supervision of a trained physiotherapist and then to continue at home - adequate calcium & vitamin d intake if levels are low in body - ice packs can applied 3-4 times in a day - analgesic spray for local application like dynapar qps spray can be used and is easily available. - avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings etc.

Actually you are overweight and whilke standing our legs have to bear our whole body weight and if weight is more our legs will get easily exhausted,so reduce weight by atleast 6-8 Kg.Secondly I think you are not doing any type of morning walks or regular exercises due to which our muscles become weak and our legs muscles being under continuous stress,gets easily exhausted.So I will advise you to start doing a brisk morning walk regularily for 20-30 minutes.At start it will be problamatic for legs but with time everything will be alright.

Shoulder pain can be a result of injury or disease of the shoulder joint. Injury can affect any of the ligaments, bursae, or tendons surrounding the shoulder joint. Injury can also affect the ligaments, cartilage, menisci and bones of the joint. Some minor shoulder pain can be treated at home. Icing the shoulder for 15 to 20 minutes, three or four times a day for two to three days can help reduce pain. Use an ice bag or wrap ice in a towel (putting ice directly on your skin can cause frostbite). Rest the shoulder and avoid any movements that might cause pain. Simple shoulder exercises can help to stretch and strengthen muscles and rotator cuff tendons. A physiotherapist can show you how to do them properly. Please consult a physiotherapist for detail assessment and management of your condition. Best wishes.

Your father appears to have paraplegia, which is loss of motor function of the lower limbs because of cancer in your back bones. You need to consult an orthopaedic oncologist for management. In later stages the manager is usually palliative/ supportive with good pain killers and bedside care. My prayers.
