Hi,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic Public Forum

Weight is determined by many factors like: bone weight, metabolic rate and genetic reasons. Because of that many people who eat even more have low weight. However sometime it become necessary to increase weight to improve look.

To know about ideal weight of person we use an index called BODY MASS INDEX (BMI).
BMI is calculated with the simple formula: BMI= weight in kg/height in metre²

According to BMI we can categorise people in three categories:
•     Underweight from 16.0 to 18.5
•     Normal from 18.5 to 25
•     Overweight from 25 to 30
•     Obese from 30 onward
So target your BMI between 18.5-25.

Following steps will be helpful to gain weight:
•     Do not worry much about weight. Target only 1-2 kg weight increment in a month.
•     Take healthy diet. Incorporate diet with fat, meat, eggs, rice and Dal. Never miss your food.
•     It is better to maintain diet chart by simply daily food intake items in diary. Also calculate your calorie intake (take help of net to calculate calorie of individual food article) from that diary and take around 3000 k cal per day.


I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
Wish you Good Health.
