Hello, My age is 30 yrs (male) but my weight is 48 kg. Please give me an advice to increase weight. I'm having loss appetite. I'm having loss of hair. Please tell how can I have a healthy and muscled body?

Muscle weight gain is not as difficult as you would often believe. For men and women who are very petite, consuming energy dense foods that are also rich in proteins can help you deal with the muscle gain problems. There needs to be a planned increase in the total amount of calories you consume. This can be simplified by calculating the amount of calories you consume in a day and estimate the amount of calories you burn. You will need to consume more calories than you burn.

Only consuming empty calories is not the solution to your problem. Along with increasing the amount of food you consume, you would also need to consume foods that are healthy for you. Some high calorie foods for weight gain include nuts, seeds, avocados, and olives. Coconuts and legumes are other energy dense foods that are also rich in nutrition.

Consumption of dairy foods and protein rich foods such as white meats and lean cuts can also help you maintain a healthy weight increasing diet. High protein foods can help with muscle weight gain, but exercise, which helps you build muscle, can speed up getting the desired results.

You can also start off by consuming six moderately sized meals throughout the day instead of consuming three large meals. By ensuring proper nutrition, you will be able to tackle health problems including hair fall.

How can stress cause weight gain?

Stress has a way of making you gain weight. For long, there has been considerable research in the area of stress and weight gain. There are many ways in which ongoing stress makes you increase your tendency to gain weight. Here's what happens when you are stressed:

  • Increased levels of cortisol: When you are stressed, your body increases the production of cortisol to calm itself down. While the cortisol calms you physically, it also slows your metabolism to a great extent.
  • Food cravings: Stress causes weight gain by making you have food cravings. These cravings occur even when you are not hungry. More often than not, you crave for high salt, high sugar, or fatty foods. This in turn causes an increased weight.
  • Change in blood chemistry: Persistent stress causes an alteration in your blood chemistry and blood sugar levels. This causes mood swings, change in levels of energy, and changes in metabolism. You may suffer from conditions like hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia.
  • Storage of fat: High levels of stress can affect the way our body stores fat. You may also have increased fat on your abdomen. The fat on your stomach causes greater health risks than fat in any other part of your body.

If you are underweight or have a very low BMR, you may need to increase the amount of calories you consume. There are a lot of ways to increase the amount of calories you consume. However, adding healthy weight gain foods to your diet will help you gain weight in a healthy manner. Eat thick breads, made of whole grains. Whole wheat, whole cereals, and pumpernickel breads along with grape nuts can make for healthy breakfast breads. You can also consume grains that are high in proteins such as flaxseed and wheat germ.

Please suggest some efficient way to increase body weight?

When you go looking for weight gaining tips, the first thing everyone tells you is to eat more. The problem with this is that eating more often leads to eating unhealthy. You need to have meals that have a right balance of all the important nutrients, while still being rich in calories. Eat foods that are higher in calories than those that are higher in fats or sugars.

In each serving of your meals, add more nutritious calories. For instance, you can add nuts, olive oil, seeds, or margarine to your mashed potatoes. You can also add ground meat to casseroles and soups. Adding eggs to gravies and desserts can also increase the amount of calories that you consume on a daily basis. Snack on foods that are high in calories. A weight gaining diet should also consist of fruits such as raisins, mangoes, bananas, and others. Also drink fruits juices every day. Mixed juice beverages usually pack a tighter punch than a single fruit juice.

It is best not to go after weight gain supplements. These supplements are often not healthy and may fail to allow you increase your weight in a systematic and planned manner. You can add a small amount of wine to all your meals to increase the calories you are consuming in each meal.
