Eat A Lot But Stay Thin?
Hello, I am purely 21 years old, so this year, my weight has been very difficult to increase, I have eaten a lot, I drank milk, I never stayed up late, but instead of increasing my weight, I became thinner. From the moment I suffered from acid reflux, I lost my weight once, so that it never rises, but I don’t even have meat 🙁
Good evening, thanks for the question
A history of chronic gastritis in general can indeed result in significant weight loss. Gastritis is an inflammatory process in the stomach lining as a protection mechanism when there is accumulation of bacteria or other irritants. Complaints of gastritis such as pain and burning like burning in the upper abdomen, nausea, vomiting, stomach full quickly, often belching, and flatulence. These complaints then cause eating disorders which if it occurs in a long time then it results in significant weight loss.
At this time it is better to do a direct examination first with your doctor so that you can do an evaluation. Other conditions that might be the cause of weight loss also need to be removed through a number of examinations, for example chronic infections, or malignant conditions. If the underlying cause is known then the treatment will be more directed so that complaints are expected to be reduced and weight can increase again.
Here are dietary modifications that can be done to gain weight, including:
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.
