Orthopedist,
If you have rheumatoid arthritis, you need to take medicines for it. It can be very well controlled by proper medication. Some quacks give high dose steroids and claim to cure the disease. Please don' t be fooled by them as these medicines can have serious side effects. You should visit a rheumatologist or an orthopedic surgeon for proper medicines.

Hi here are 6 ways to gain weight healthily: 1. Eating 5 to 6 meals a day in order to gain weight, start eating 5-6 meals a day by breaking them into parts. Eating a lot at once may cause indigestion if the body fails to absorb all nutrients. Eat in small amounts, even if you are not hungry and there will be an increase in appetite from day to day. The aim should be to have a generously portioned breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as two to three snacks in between. 2. Start weight training if you build your muscles through weight training, it will convert the extra weight into lean body mass and also stimulate your appetite. The extra muscle increases the rate of metabolism. When you start exercising you will often experience extreme muscle soreness but it goes away in 3-5 days. 3. Load up on protein besides weight training, a protein-rich diet can help you gain mass. Eating a meal heavy in protein shortly after finishing exercise can be highly effective in adding extra pounds to your body. However, a diet focused only on lean protein is not helpful. It is important to make sure that your diet has plenty of fat in it. Eat foods rich in protein like cheese, meat, eggs, etc to gain weight in a healthy manner. 4. Workout your entire body a lot of people focus only on training the muscles on their arms, chest and shoulders and this is a grave error. Firstly, it will give you a disproportionate body; and it will make you prone to injuries. Therefore, it's important to work out the entire body for a complete and balanced look. 5. Drink your calories to reach the calorie requirement only by eating may be tough. Drinking milk, milkshakes or protein shakes with little or no sugar can be an effective way to load up on the calorie requirements. 6. Be patient and believe in yourself gaining weight quickly in a healthy manner is unrealistic. Every body type is different and it takes months to gain weight. Living healthy by eating the right diet will increase your strength. It is also important to keep following the routine even if you don't see any gains. Caution: junk food and fried foods must be avoided; although have a tendency to add more fat to your body but are very low in vitamins and minerals which are essentially required to keep you really fit. Related tip: the most powerful way to put on weight - snacking right.

Dear Lybrate user, it's very generous of you for being fit and healthy and taking efforts for reducing extra fats. Treatment of weight loss is very long term and successful though complicated process. It mainly depends on proper diet, exercise, ayurvedic medicine and Panchakarma therapy. Thses are the four basic pillars of Weight Loss treatment. As you have mentioned your weight of 110 kg, it seems 25 to 30 kg of fat loss is necessary. It will take around 7 to 8 months with continuous efforts of diet control, exercise and Medication. I am providing you herewith details of diet. “ Weight loss: Diet ” Morning: half cup of tea/ milk/ coffee. For breakfast: pohe, uppit, paratha, rawa dosa, thalipith, etc. In small quantity. Milk products should be avoided: butter, paneer, cheese, meethai etc. Fermented food should be avoided: idli, dosa, uttappa etc. Tea should not be consumed more than half cup and 2 times day. Lunch: one chapatti of wheat with any of the following vegetable. Vegetables: Snake gourd, ladys finger, cauliflower, cabbage, bottle gourd, red pumpkin, ash gourd, cluster beans, drumstic, green peas, radish etc. Rice should be taken only once a day, in half of the current quantity. Evening: half cup of tea/ milk/ coffee. Dinner: as per lunch. Non-Veg and addictions like smoking drinking etc should be avoided. Salt and weight: 1 gm of salt retains around 60 ml of water in human body, hence, salt intake should be reduced substantially for good result in weight loss. Diet should be strictly followed for 3 to 4 months along with the medication and adviced Panchakarma Procedures. Salads of radish, carrot, beat root, onion leaf, tomato etc. Should be used. A detail history and checkup is necessary for the treatment of weight loss. Feel free to. Personal or through online consultation for better understanding and treatment.

. Eat small but frequent meals. Avoid long gaps in between meals. Avoid junk as far as possible. Exercise at least 4 times a week. Lastly be committed. Remember it's a lifestyle change and not a one time thing. It's a balanced intake that will last you longer. All the so called diets will only give you muscle and bone loss. The fats will remain as it is. So, try to first follow this seemingly simple tips.

I am suffering from obesity. Even I am eating a vegetarian diet. I put on weight easily.
Hello Swapnil, Big belly with 94 kg weight is suggesting of underlying hormonal disturbance in your body. Unless that is diagnosed and corrected by proper diet and exercise plan, it would be difficult to reduce weight and waist. Low calorie, low fat diet, toiling in gym on trademill for 1 hour every day - are not correct approaches. Make comprehensive change in diet, exercise, sleep and stress in your routine. This is called lifestyle medicine. If you can not do it on your own, find some expert who can help you in this over extended period of time. We even do this over long distance by phone and whats app. We are located in Ahmedabad - If you are close by you may decide to visit personally. Best wishes.

Appreciate your effort for taking a step forward for a healthy life. It's good that you have started physical activity. But exercise alone can't give you desired results. You can do better if you follow proper meal regime too. Good luck!

How to loose fat fast in a month.

Certified Diabetes Educator, Registered Dietitian (RD), PGDD, Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S), General Physician
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
How to loose fat fast in a month.
Let me know your food intake details. The best diet is one which is healthy and well balanced with foods from all the food groups, and one which is varied and that you can stick to weight loss on some diets can be dramatic in the short term, but there's more of a chance of rebound weight gain. Set yourself a realistic target and aim to lose between (0.5-1.0kg) a week I strongly accommodate the patient's own preferences without the patient feeling that they are on a diet not compromising the weight management goals. Don't fall for self dieting or fad diets available online they have harmful effects in the long run, if you lose a lot of weight very quickly, you may not lose as much fat as you would with a more modest rate of weight loss. Instead, you might lose water weight or even lean muscle tissue, since it's hard to burn that many fat calories in a short period. After assessing your personal challenges to weight loss, one can recommend a strategy to gradually change habits and attitudes that have sabotaged your past efforts. Also the overall objective should not be to drastically reduce weight but doing it gradually and help rebuild body tissues and to maintain ideal body weight.

Crunch up lifting the head and chest a bit. The aim is to try and touch the knees with the forehead. But do not try to do it in the first attempt. Give your body some time. ? Now move down gradually, exhaling the air. Descending movement must be slower than the crunch up movement. Repeat the steps 5 to 10 times
