    Terrible man !

    Try increasing the amount of food u eat ..... Dont eat fatty foods just cause u wanna gain weight ... it contains cholestrol and ll only give u a heart attack ....

    The normal food
    Meat in moderation is a good idea ..... Put on some body mass by eating more ....

    How tall are you?
    If you are 5ft it is not terribly underweight.
    If you are 6ft then you need to put on some weight.

    Well don't over do it with food especially fatty foods which are fried and full of pure fat! Instead take everything in moderation with a variety of fats, protein, carbs and so on, but increase the amount of food you have in a day!

    Eat things like paneer, cashew nuts, almonds, have chicken but don't over do it! Also drink lots of milk which will help in all ways!

    Have good sized portions of food, have pranthas in the morning, and keep eating something little until lunch and again have good lunch, eat little things till dinner and then have a full dinner!

    When i mean little things in between, i mean snacks!

    Hope that helps!

    If you really want to take any medication for this i would suggest try homoeopathy it is same as it contains lowest amount of crude drug. You can use Alfa Alfa Q 10-15 drops with meal

    Honestly there are many reasons for weightloss- even extreme high rate of metabolism or even thyroid as well. Thyroid issues are not only to create massive weight issues but also other issues like redundant depression and other emotional changes and even physical changes as well. Its best if you consult doctors before doing anything. I am twice the weight but I gained in 2 months time. Doctors that I ate a lot due to depression or something but when I asked a friend and went to endocryoligist, I had hyperthyroidism. I am diagnosed for 7 years now but it is now that I am showing improvement.

    Yes its a good idea to change your diet and increase it and see how your weight has changed in a months time! If its increased then carry on with your diet, if not then see a doctor!

    Best of luck!

    Just checked, I have gained 2 kilos since 20th Nov (when i started my crusade )... i think this is a decent rate to gain weight... i'm happy now, can certainly feel the difference mainly on my chest for now ...
    i just need to stay on my diet plan now to hopefully go on to a normal healthy weight. Thanks all.... going off again on my break... i'll keep visiting now n then.

    And the rule to gain weight is simple, just eat & eat.Avoid junk food & too much fat though...as it'll be bad in the long run.
    One more important thing, reduce your stress levels if any & relax.

    where ru going for 4 months??

    another thing I'd like to suggest (along with working out) is a glass of protein shake everyday - ideally should be the high protein,bodybuilding types of powders that you can get in pharmacies nowadays (i.e. weight gainer, mega mass, etc. - go for the whey protein variety, forget egg).

    if you're not working out as regularly, go for a lower protein content powder such as Protovic (also in pharmacies).

    Beer = alchohol
    alchohol consumed = high calories & sugar in blood
    unburnt calories = fat
    fat = pot belly

    Eat lots of protein and exercise. Protein + exercise will build muscles. Eat white meat (poultry or fish), egg whites, legumes, lentils, etc.

    If you just eat proteins, they will be converted to carbohydrates as the body does not need more muscles. If you just exercise, body will need lots of energy to make muscles do the work - in absence of proteins, it will convert existing proteins to carbohydrates and use it to convert it to energy.

    Avoid fats, alcohol, etc. But a glass of red wine a day is fine (you did say you have given up drinking, but still).

    Yeah. But you gave up drinking after you reached the legal age and drinking when not allowed.

    Its 18-25 and it varies in between the states..

    Consumption of alcohol is prohibited in the states of Gujarat, Manipur and Mizoram. The legal drinking age in Tamil Nadu is 21.

    if you drink beer without any excercising , it will give you beer belly ... but drinking beer with proper workout / excercises is recommended by many gym instructors ... i used to to go gym 2-3 years ago .... i heard this from my instructor there ...

    Hehehehehe... first person i am seeing who says i want to gain weight...
    If so then just eat as much fast food as you can. try out eating stuffs like idli, dosa & utappa... those kind of food really helps to gain weight.
