My query was regarding my diet plan
apparentely I am underweight
and more over my lifestyle is very active
so due to my work schedule...my diet isn't that much what it should be
May i know your height and weight ?
156cm n 43
you seem to have a low bmi of 17.67
have u been prescribed any diet , to improve your weight ?
so , u have not undergone any medical checks ?
what could be the possibility for the same?
first and foremost, you should increase your protein content in your food , with eggs, pulses, beans, soya protein, lentils, etc
are u a vegetarian ?
a non veg
is it a possibility to get a complete diet plan so that i follow it on regular basis.
In that case, having lean muscle portion of mutton, would also be good
in addition, to that, you should also do weight gaining exercises, which help to build up your body muscles , and tone them up
taking supplements of calcium, iron and Vit D is also essential
what kind off exercises they are?
they are like lifting weights , in a gym
you need not go for serious body building or so
but my schedule is so tight that i hardly get time for gyming
Then u need to manage your time, so, that you can fit in at least 30 mins to 1 hr of workout in a gym
and the diet plan?
In addition, i would advise you to get a few tests, like Complete hemogram, peripheral blood smear, thyroid fucntions, renal and liver functions, tests
based on them, further assessment or treatment if needed can be decided
a proper diet plan, needs a dietician, who will consult with you, in person and give you according to ur needs
