Doctor: Hello,Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.comI understand your concern.You have been eating normally, exercis ing, taking multivitamin tablets, yet you are not putting on weight.Unfortunately, some people genetically find it very difficult to put on weight and have a lean look for the rest of their life.The only way to put on healthy weight is to add muscle growing supplements to your diet and indulge in good physical workouts every day. A supplement like whey protein will help you add lean muscle mass and a diet rich in protein also needs to be taken. Mostly Asian diets lack protein and while it is recommended to consume around 150-180 grams of protein, our diet hardly gives us 60-80 grams. You need to include 6-8 boiled egg whites per day, besides meat, and other protein rich foods such as cottage cheese, soybean, peanuts, pulses, e.t.cWhey protein can be taken 2-3 times daily provided you are following a regular workout schedule. You need to get a good trainer to keep you motivated and workout 5 days a week. This will definitely help you put on good healthy weight in 3 months.Hope this was helpful,Feel free to discuss further,Regards.
