Hi,Sidhita,
As per standard at this age and ht you should have weight between 49 to 66 kg.and you.have got wt 48,49, you are not under wt. but minimum of normal so you may require few more kg wt.
You take more protein and good amount of fat and carbohydrate so that calorie intake will be more and thus positive calorie balance will bring your wt raised.
Take more dry fruits,bulky fresh fruits and eggs.Use of more cereals and pulses also will put weight.

I had a subcolectomy about a year and a half ago. I've gained about 30 lbs. No one seems to have an answer. I tried weight loss plans, exercising (including zumba). I am hungry all the time and have up to 6 BMs a day, Now I've tried taking a diet pill. I losted about 8 lbs but couldn't continue with the pill becauise of heart palpitations. When I eat healthy foods, which are all high in fiber, they go straight through me. Still no weight loss.
