Cook with more sauce & spices.
Try to rest more often.
Avoid stress and physically exhausting stuff.
While a good number of people are fat and overweight, actually a high number of people are underweight as well.

And just like being overweight, being underweight also has its problems both medically and psychologically.

Not everyone is happy being “small” or being underweight.
How do I know if I’m underweight?

It is based on what we call the BMI Body Mass Index. If your BMI is less than 18.5, you are underweight. And if more than 24.5, you are overweight and if more than 30, you are fat or obese, and if more than 40, your life is at risk medically.
How do you calculate your BMI:
BMI= weight/height squared

Weigh yourself, record in kilograms. Measure your height, record the height in meters.

Do a square of the height (that means multiply the height by itself):
Now divide the weight by the answer-

What you get is the BMI.
Sometimes being underweight runs in families and there’s very little you can do about it even if you eat like a thief.

A simple way to know is look at your parents, siblings and family member- if they are generally small people, sadly, you are most likely going to be small too.
It’s good to state here too that if you notice that despite doing everything you lose weight and are skinny- speak to a doctor. Sometimes illnesses like diabetes, thyroid problems, cancer, hiv, and some infections can keep people underweight.

It’s better to be safe than sorry.
But overall, being skinny can make some people have a low self esteem. And it’s no harm trying to gain a bit of weight.

The main trick is to eat, eat and eat.
Especially foods rich in fat and proteins.
Snacks, junk foods and all that stuff.

But watch it once you get overweight.
The best way is aim for a BMI between 18.5 and 24.5, that’s a safe normal healthy BMI. As I said before, anything under or above that is abnormal.

So I hope this little thread has helped someone get encouraged to gain a little weight. Don’t lose hope. Don’t give up.

Thank you.
