First thing is to stop junk food, mirchi, masala food etc. Without that it will be very difficult for you to regular bowels. Take timely meals and include salads that is raw vegetables with each meal. Have regular physical activity like walking for a distance of 6 kms every day in the morning and doing yoga exercises in the evening. Take plenty of water i.e. 2.5 - 3 litres of water in a day. If you are student you can have physical movement like walking, strolling in between your classes. If you are working donot be chair bound for long duration, move about once in an hour like going to washroom/to fetch water etc. Depending on your day life you evolve a method/cause for the movements. You have to regularly and meticulously follow the above guidance otherwise you will face lot of trouble. Your target should be to bring down your weight to 40 kgs as per your height. Donot fast, its more harmful. Have small frequent meals. Good luck.

In many cases, simple changes in your diet like taking high fibre foods and lifestyle can provide relief from irritable bowel syndrome. Although your body may not respond immediately to these changes, your goal is to find long-term, not temporary, solutions. I will inform you on how to make diet, lifestyle changes, make you understand instructions for taking medication because it won't work if you don't take it as directed. Consult privately for a holistic dietary therapy to solve your problems.

It is not a good idea of Increasing intake of junk foods and fatty foods to gain weight. You should be eating calorie dense yet nutritious food. Your calorie intake should come from foods that are healthy for you. The weight gaining diet should include high protein foods, high carbohydrate foods and healthy fats. Include these in your diet. Breakfast: Banana and milk or banana shake or smoothie, whole-grain toast, fruits, nuts. Eat more fruit and drink less juice. Do not take milk mixed with ghee . It is not healthy. Lunch: Roti or chapatti or wholegrain bread, rice, green vegetables, paneer, dal, chole recipe, black-eyed beans (lobia), rajma, whole wheat pudding (dalia), etc Dinner: Similar to lunch In-between meals:: fruit, sandwich, yogurt (curd), milk, cheese, salad Avoid deep fried snacks like samosa (samosa recipe), pakodas, bhujia etc. Avoid fast foods

Hi, Inadequate sleep, untimely intake of food, intake of very hot and spicy food, mental worries and tensions, excessive usage of pain killers and antibiotics are all causes of acidity. Please follow these tips apart from taking medicines to avoid recurrence: - Do not keep your stomach empty for long durations, - Eat in small quantities frequently. - Avoid hot, spicy and oil fried food - Drink plenty of water in between your intake. - Keep away from mental stress and tensions, - Perform physical exercises daily and meditation helps to relieve mental stress and tensions. - Consume lot of fibre like raw vegetables, oats, fruits, sprouts, etc - Avoid excess intake of coffee or tea , intake of medicines on empty stomach. - Be careful about the food while eating outside. - Carry a small pack of biscuit or some fruits along with you for emergency. - Whenever you suffer from acidity, take the medications prescribed by the doctor for 2-3 weeks continuously until the wounds in the stomach gets healed completely. - Sleep at least for 8 hours a day. - Restrict the usage of pain killers and antibiotics frequently.

hello Lybrate user your food is not only the major cause for gas formation but your timing of taking meal is also important. if you skip your any meal especially breakfast it will cause acidity and gas formation. so don't skip food take all major meals on time. drink plenty of water take fiber rich diet. start yoga and meditation. for more query pls consult.
