From kindergarten-junior high, my body is still thin, I have been given curcuma herbal medicine, worm medicine, even in massage, I am still thin. I want to restore weight and indeed I rarely SPORT. even in the Circumcision (Circumcision) Remain thin. I became inferior to my bad friend’s friend, big friend, please?
Good evening, thanks for the question
Weight gain that is difficult to rise is caused by more energy used than energy entering from food in a day, so no energy reserves are stored as muscle and fat. In conditions with severe energy shortages, muscle cells break down to meet the energy requirements needed, so that body weight will decrease.
The presence of other underlying diseases can also affect metabolic disorders, such as thyroid hormone disorders, malabsorption, TB infections, malignancies, worm infections, and so forth. If the previous history of TB has been completely treated there should be nothing to do with the current complaint, especially if there are no complaints of a long cough or fever at night. A person's basal metabolic rate which is indeed high from genetic factors can also influence this condition making it difficult to gain weight.
If there are no other significant physical complaints, make modifications to the diet that contains a high calorie source. Suggested diet modifications to increase weight include:
1. Eat more food and contain complex carbohydrates.
2. If you cannot eat large portions, eat small portions but often around 5-6 times per day.
3. Interspersed with healthy snacks 2-3 times a day between heavy meals.
4. Consumption of foods high in carbohydrates, high in protein, and high in fat such as meat and dairy products.
5. Avoid fast food
6. Non-aerobic exercise
7. Get enough rest
8. Reduce excessive stress
So, hopefully it can be useful.
