Increase your weight in a healthy manner

  • Being lean is good, but being very lean and thin and underweight is bad.
  • A lot of medical tests are there to find out why a person is underweight.
  • To gain weight and be healthy you need to consume more calories than you burn them every day from healthy, protein enriched, and nutritious foods and choose the right types of exercise.
  • Exercise a little like mild weightlifting so as to feel hungry, to eat more balanced food and to develop muscle.
  • Take tuna, salmon, flax and walnuts. They contain healthy fats like omega-3.
  • Take meat, fish, poultry, nuts, and legumes. They contain protein.
  • Take fruits, vegetables and whole grains. They contain carbohydrates.
  • Take healthy beverages like milk and fruit juices to add calories instead of sweetened aerated sodas.
  • Take food supplements after consulting a physician to get all required vitamins and minerals.
