Hi well come to HCM.
If you exercise there will not be wait gain because of diet. But for weight gain dietory
facor only is not responsible.Hormonal changes and genetic factors are also playing
there roll for wait gain. Hormonal factors normally is related with your growing age, and
conditions like hypothyroidism can precipitate it. Genetic factors are not correctable
factors. As far as diet is concerned for maintaining wait is O.K. thanks
