Dietitian/Nutritionist - Specializes in Management of Underweight & Malabsorption Disorder
Maintenance of one's body weight is very important to stay healthy. The perfect weight of a person is determined by an individual's height. A BMI (body mass index) of your body would give you a clear outlook either you are under weight or over weight. A BMI of below 20, indicates that you are under - weight. There is slight difference between being under – weight and being malnourished. Individuals who are under – weight require calories from the food in their body and those who are malnourished need nutrients present in food and they are prone to develop diseases and complications. Contrary to popular belief, it is a myth that if under – weight people consume high calorie food, it would help them put on weight. This usually prompts in unhealthy fats being deposited in the body. If one wants to put on weight, they should seek healthy approaches to put on weight. One should either visit a dietician or nutritionists who will keep in mind your medical history and your bodily necessities and would put forward a diet plan. Keeping in mind your food preferences your dietician/nutritionist would recommend you a food routine which would bring about weight gain the right way. One should avoid unsafe drugs to gain weight, which are widely present in the market, as they have harmful side effects as well as can harm your kidneys.
