Bad appetite, low weight, inability to eat spice, on synthetic analogue steroids and ayurvedic medication. Help?

Dear Sir, Greeting! I m a 30 yrs old male (currently a research scholar). I ve a moderately lean built with a body weight of around 64 Kg. More so I m keen to increase my weight to around normal (at least 4-6 Kg extra) but the problem is that I m skeptical about health/ protein supplements and more so I have a bad appetite to gain weight naturally. I also remain chronically constipated often with seldom having to go more than twice in a day (usually once in two days on an average or even less frequently sometimes), vegetarian, cann t eat spice food (probably also taking a toll on me in a hostel life) and cann t eat frequent diets in a day (poorly defined & busy for nothing sort of lifestyle of a PhD scholar). I m interested in gaining general health & weight naturally. Although I m a doctoral student of pharmaceutical science still I don t advocate the use of health/protein supplements as they may still contain synthetic weight gainers including synthetic steroid analogs. Due to lack of a good appetite and general feeling of weakness I sometime feel unable to meet my daily tasks. Further I have started developing a depressive attitude towards life and a lifestyle, which almost lacks adequate physical work. I need your help to suggest me a solution based on principles of ayurveda to gain what I feel lacking.

Ayurveda Specialist 's  Response
1. any hemoglobin level or chest x-ray been done?
2. any Nutritional disorder?
3. try to remain calm and happy, because body and mind are interlinked, and this is what we call in Ayurveda the definition of 'Health'
4. You can Improve your Appetite by doing little bit of jogging,brisk walk for half an hour, but in the morning.
5. You can consult an Ayurveda Physician about the medicines helping in improving appetite and gaining weight (Kushmandha Avleha, Chaywanprash,Ashwagandha-avleha/arishta, Draksharishta)
