Thanks for posting your query. I hope you are doing well.

Here are my answers:

1. Ideally, you must be weighing around 54 to 60kgs. You are now 48. You must eat healthy, nutritious food with almonds and cashews to put on more weight. You need to eat protein XXXXXXX food. Along with this, you must do aerobic physical exercises daily for 40 mins to build up the muscle mass.

2. This is not a serious problem. However, I advise you to use a tongue cleaner to clean your tongue after every meal and floss your teeth twice daily.

3. This is not a problem too. It is ok for you to not be able to eat large meals. I am glad that you get hungry every 4 hrs. Please eat fruits at this time when you feel hungry. You could also eat dry fruits. Consume a glass of milk. You must eat frequently, once in 4 hrs.

I hope this helps you.

Take care, XXXXXXX
