Hello lybrate-user, you need to increase your daily food intake so that you gain energy. Eat after every 2 -3 hours. Have lots of fruits, vegetables, milkshakes, juices. Have a good amount of protein in your diet along with carbohydrates. Have eggs, milk, paneer, all pulses, rajma + rice, kala chana, sprouts, chicken, lean meat, fish, Have both roti & rice in your lunch and dinner, followed by some sweet dish, kheer, ice-creams etc. We do not believe in medicines as they will not work unless you increase your food intake.
Hello Lybrate User,
If you want to gain weight, then it is very important that you do it right.
Binging on soda and donuts may help you gain weight, but it can destroy your health at the same time. If you are underweight, then you want to gain a balanced amount of muscle mass and subcutaneous fat, not a bunch of unhealthy belly fat. Therefore, it is absolutely very important to eat mostly healthy foods even if you are trying to gain weight. Here are food groups and few tips to gain weight, follow this - * You need to eat more calories than your body burns in order to gain weight. Aim for 300-500 calories per day above your maintenance level, or 700-1000 calories if you want to gain weight fast.
* Protein forms the building blocks of your muscles. Eating sufficient protein is required to gain muscle weight instead of just fat.
*High-protein foods include meats, fish, eggs, Â many dairy products, legumes, nuts and others.
* In order to gain weight, eat at least 5 meals per day and make sure to eat plenty of fat, carbs and protein.
* Donât drink water before meals. This can fill your stomach and make it harder to get in enough calories.
* Drink milk. Drinking whole milk to quench thirst is a simple way to get in more high-quality protein and calories.
Get enough sleep. Sleep for 7 to 8 hours. If possible take afternoon nap for half an hour. For better results and daily diet plan consult me privately. Take care.
Get your thyroid function test done once, with the parameters provided you seem to be underweight by around 15 kgs, so may be you might be suffering from some underlying deficiencies.
Get your vitamin profile checked simultaneously and ensure your diet is high in vitamins, proteins and iron. Meditation will also help.
