Thanks for your query.

Loose stools after milk or any perpetration from milk may indicate lactose intolerance. You can take both Nutrilite Protein and Nutrilite Positrim with orange juice too.

The above preparations are effective and help you gain weight only if you consume high protein diet along with working out in gym or regular exercises.

Your BMI is 16 according to your weight and height and is low.

Its is very essential that you work out for the food and the protein powders to get incorporated into your muscles and build weight. With the increased physical activity you would need some additional calories to let the dietary protein work for the muscle building. This is called as the protein sparing action, of the carbohydrates. Therefore, cutting down the carbohydrates totally or reducing it considerably would seize protein do its intended function of muscle building. Make sure that you include enough carbohydrates in your diet. Choose from the foods XXXXXXX in insoluble fibers like whole grains, green leafy vegetables, and whole wheat pasta.

Include the protein XXXXXXX foods for muscle building. Foods like egg white, lean portions meat, dried fruits and nuts, legumes like rajmah, channa, soybean and its products like tofu etc. are very good sources of protein. Make sure that you include plenty of low fat dairy products as well. These would not only provide protein but are good sources of calcium. Include sprouts, natural peanut butter, sugar free yogurt, boiled channa and soy chaat and soaked dry fruits in the daily diet.

Healthy fats are also equally important, as we need them for various functions and also some of the fat soluble nutrients need fat for their proper function. Include the good fat sources like, almonds, walnuts, olive and natural peanut butter for the healthy fat supply. Deep fried foods and munching in-between the meals would add extra calories to the diet. Make sure that you eat small and frequent meals.

Hope I answered your query.

Please let me know if there are any other concerns.

Wish you good luck.
