  • Tips for gaining weight?

    I had an operation a few months back and since then I've been losing a lot of weight. I've calculated by BMI and apparently, I'm underweight, almost severely. I know people will say "just eat more" but it really isn't that simple. It's problematic for my stomach to adjust to larger portions. My antibiotics are also causing extreme fatigue; I can't exercise regularly like I used to (exercise really helped) and I sometimes skip meals. All this is making me so depressed and my mood really affects my eating behavior.

    I think if you do need to gain weight, you have to do it slowly. Don't eat loads of fatty foods: stick to protein and carbohydrates. Again, gain weight slowly. Exercise will build up your muscles. Because you want to put on weight in your muscle: not have layers of fat. I am sure someone else on here will have more advice. I do hope I've helped.

      Doctor would suggest you best in this regard. I never tried that although I was over weighted. It was really difficult to think about this. I think you should take instructions from doctor before doing this. May you get well soon. Take care.
