Dear lybrate user, increasing weight does not mean that you will go fatty. In fact, extra fat serves as a precursor of many diseases. In order to increase your weight as well as stay healthy you have to increase the muscle mass of your body. Normally a muscle undergoes an increase in size when it gets hypertrophied due to weight training. Weight-training leads to the pumping of blood to the muscle resulting in increased protein synthesis in the muscles. This applies to every muscles of human body. So, weight training is a must to increase weight. Whenever a muscle gets hypertrophied it demands protein to expand. Here comes the need of protein supplement. The most effective protein supplement is whey protein. For quicker & better results take 40 grams of whey just after waking from sleep at morning. Take another 20 grams of whey just 30 minutes before workout. Again take 40 grams of whey just after you have finished your workout. Kindly remember gaining weight is a time -taking process. So do not expect any result within fortnight.

Some of the" typical" responses to frustration include anger, quitting (burn out or giving up), loss of self-esteem and self-confidence, stress and depression. Anger management: 10 tips to tame your temper anger: there is a saying" frustration begets anger and anger begets aggression. Direct anger, is expressed toward the object perceived as the cause of the frustration. If a machine does not work, you might hit it or kick it. If someone gets in your way, you could verbally threaten them or push them aside. If the source of the frustration is too powerful or threatening for direct aggression, displaced aggression is often used. The aggression is redirected toward a less threatening and more available object. An angry person often acts without thinking. The person has given in to the frustration and they have given up restraint. Anger can be a healthy response if it motivates us to positive action but all too often the actions we engage in when angry are destructive. Indeed, if we could see a videotape of ourselves getting angry, the humiliation might well help cure us of anger. When you feel frustration building, you have to practice learned responses that lead to healthy actions instead of destructive ones. Giving up: giving up on a goal can be productive if the goal is truly out of reach. However, more often giving up (quitting or being apathetic) is another form of giving in to frustration. When repeatedly frustrated, people can drop out of school, quit jobs, or move away. Apathy is giving up all of your goals, so you cannot be frustrated by trying to reach them. We live in difficult time and we have to be persistent in order to accomplish. Consider how many projects you began, and then gave up, because you became frustrated and lost patience. Make a list of things you started and quit because they seemed too difficult. Now calculate the disappointment and loss you suffered by not dealing with the frustration in a more healthy way. Try to remember that quitters never win, and winners never quit. Losing your temper means you're a quitter. Loss of confidence: is a terrible frequent side effect of giving up and not fulfilling your goal. A loss of self-confidence and self-esteem, means that if we quit once, then the next time we plan a goal, we may not be able to accurately assess our ability to carry it out and we stop trusting ourselves and our own abilities. This became a self-fulfilling and self-destructive attitude. You need to be able to learn that when the going gets tough, you say to yourself" it is worth it! and by following through, it not only gets the job done, but it builds self-confidence. Stress: is the" wear and tear" our body and mind experiences as we adjust to the frustrations our continually changing environment. Too frequently, extreme, or prolonged frustration and stress strains us and generates distress signals. Our body experiences distress signals in a variety of ways, often in the form of: irritability, anger, fatigue anxiety, headache, depression, stomach aches, hypertension, migraines, ulcers, heart attacks, or colitis. Depression: depression can affect almost every aspect of your life. It affects people of all ages, income, race, and cultures. Depression can affect the way you eat and sleep the way you feel about yourself, the way one think about things, and the way you interact with others. While we all feel depression at various appropriate times in our lives, excess or inappropriate depression cannot be easily dismissed or wished away. Other reactions: abuse of drugs & alcohol is self-destructive and usually futile attempt at dealing with frustration, as are many eating and weight problems and addictions whenever the immediate effects of the addictive behaviour wear off, users find themselves back in the same, or even worse, frustrating situation. Learning to deal with frustration it is unrealistic to believe you can rid yourself of frustration forever, but you can learn to do things to minimize your frustrations and to make sure you do not engage in unhealthy responses to frustration. You will need to learn to distinguish between what you hope will happen, what will probably happen, and what actually happened. Life inevitably has its ups and downs -- its moments of relaxation and times of tension. When you learn to truly accept this reality, you come one step closer to being able to deal with frustration in a healthy way. There are several types of problems that we encounter in everyday living: those which you know can be solved, those which you are not sure if they can be solved or not, those you know are totally out of your control, and those you are so confused about that you do not even know what the problem is. You need to be able to accurately assess your abilities to alter situations that prevent you from solving your problems and reaching your goal. Then you will be able to assess which of the types of problems you have encountered, and you will then be able to develop a realistic plan. Learning to take things in stride will also help you to be more content and happy which, in turn, will help you to more easily overcome anger and frustration. If you are upset, sad, anxious, or depressed you will have less patience and tolerance for everything and everybody.

26 Male, just married. After few days of marriage my wife introduced an old best friend of her. Although earlier they've proposed each other but due to some reason nothing happened as boyfriend or girlfriend between them. Presently at some personal moment she started comparison between her friend and me, though I respect her friend and had accepted in present situation but being human sometimes I feel that both of them should end their friendship now, not just because now I am married with her but her best friend is married with someone and had a baby but he is not happy with his wife which make me little insecure towards my wife. I trust my wife and had talked about this instead of understanding me she said that she wouldn't ditch me. At this point I feel very low post accepting every bitter truth of her past and her lies which I caught frequently like she says that she did not talked to him but she does but it won't effects me but what really effects me is her lies which she kept saying and when I caught her red handed just because of her stupidity then she says you don't trust me, she's stubborn too. Although we are married but we have just lived only 4-5 days together after marriage. Also our marriage is purely arranged and due to some rituals we live too far from each other almost 800 km away. I do understand in every aspect but she won't which sometimes intends me to think we should separate. Even her family doesn't like her friend and it's none of my business but introduction/ comparison with her best friend with me is making me mad. Don't know what to do also I don't want to lose her but circumstances are making to feel and go so.please help me

Dear friend I am sure this is a very tough situation for you. Feeling insecure and uncertain in a given situation is absolutely normal. What I am sensing about you is you are aware of your inner dilemma and you want to do something about it. You are open. Relationships are very delicate. It builds on love and trust. You both have not stayed togather much and I am sure being in an arrange merraige you do not know each other as well. Building trust for each other is a slow process. Also your wife must be younger than you so might be little less mature. Mostly she will not continue her relationship with her friend. Once you start staying togather it will be a good chance for both of you to know each other and build your relationship. Right now she might be feeling lonely and insecure in a new place and she doesn't have anyone around from her pre merraige life. She even do not have you close. That is what might be pushing her to hold on to someone from the past. Once you start staying togather. Your bonding will grow and her need for security will be fulfilled in your relationship and support. It is difficult to suggest something specific without talking to you. I have done work on family counselling so if you need feel free you can take help from me and after understanding the situation I would be able to suggest something very specific to work on. Which will give you a direction to build a loving and trusting relationship. Hope this helps keep your positivity and openers alive wishing you very best.

Dear Karan. Stage fear is one sort of performance anxiety which comes under general anxiety disorder. Singing in small groups and then go large etc are basic steps in the therapy and such systematic desensitization therapy methods can only cure your problem. Secondly you should not unnecessarily worry about this anxiety. Because if you worry, anxiety worsens. Consult a psychologist online. Take care.

Tremors, feeling anxious or nervous, sense of panic, sweating, increased heartbeat, feeling of impending doom, stomach discomfort, dizziness etc are signs of anxiety. These can be debilitating. If the anxiety us overwhelming, consult a psychiatrist at the earliest. With the right medication and counseling, it is likely your symptoms will improve. Other than that, try yoga, deep breathing, meditation, moderate exercise, progressive muscular relaxation and guided meditation.

I think you are well advised to meet with this neighbor and explain your predicament viz-a-viz needing the dog for a therapeutic reason. Without that reason he may rightfully feel annoyed that the dog's yelping may cause him disturbance to him and his family. People are very understanding if explanations are proffered. After all you may have disturbed a rather peaceful neighborhood!

Sir/Mam, I am a student and pursuing B.tech.I want to quit smoking as I wanted to make a career in bodybuilding, but the reason why I continuously fail to quit this habit after making commitment is mainly due to the following reasons:- 1.**Smoker friends say that smoking 1-2 cigrate in a weekly basis or smoking socially has negligible effect on health.** 2.**When I concentrate on bodybuilding and think smoking could effect my stamina and strength. But on the contrary I see famous personalities like ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER, SYLVESTER STALLONE ,etc are smoking and still have such good physique .by all these thinking my mind gets confused and I think. It's fine to smoke as many people who smoke are yet successful in various fields.** ##SO SERIOUSLY HELP ME OUT WHAT TO DO I REALLY DON'T KNOW WHETHER IT IS GOOD TO RELY ON SUCH FACTS AND DO SMOKE#. HOPING AND EAGERLY WAITING FOR YOUR REPLY.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear Rajeev, "Smoking is injurious to health" is the warning given on each pack of cigarettes. There is no doubt about it. Nicotine in cigarettes is a stimulant that gives instant energy and increases the performance. That is why many who started smoking could not give up. For each smoker personalities there are 100s non smoker personalities who are famous. You can not go on anecdotal examples. You have to think in statistical terms. Congratulations for deciding to quit smoking. If you can avoid your smoker friends and smoking environment for 12 weeks continuously, you will be able to stick to your commitment. It is difficult = but not impossible. In a passive smoking environment your motivation to quit smoking goes down to a very low level confusing you. Try hard to find friends who don't smoke and who go for body building. Join with them for 3-6 months not only physically even virtually. Quitting smoking has many health benefits apart from body building. It increases your breathing capacity and protects your heart with tough exercises. All the best.

Antidepressants have this side effect. The medication is accumulated in your body. You are showing symptoms of emotional and mental fatigue. You need counselling and psychotherapy along with ayurveda to help you overcome depression. These methods are safe and without side effects. Besides this please practice yoga, pranayama and meditation etc to destress yourself. Some amount of exercise is extremely important. Take care.

I am gurdas singh age 46 my problems is depression thinking, afraiding and angry some other problems.
You are into an anger-related depression and may employ some of the suggestions recommended: You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.
