When referring to the normal body mass index (BMI) calculation for Asians, the ideal body weight for someone as tall as you is between 45 and 55 kg. So indeed, you are classified as having a thin body.
There are many factors that can make it difficult for a person to gain weight, one of which is influenced by the activities carried out. If you are accustomed to strenuous activity every day, including due to work and remote work locations, of course the calories from the food and drinks you consume will be used a lot to produce energy. This causes the deposition of fat and muscle in your body to decrease so that the body will become thin. This condition should be overcome with a good diet and exercise pattern.
Apart from a lot of activity, thin posture can also be influenced by genetics (congenital), improper diet, rarely exercising, or having other diseases, for example related to chronic infections, hyperthyroidism, cancer, and so on.
Have you ever checked your overall health with a doctor to detect any diseases that can make your body thin as mentioned above? If not, we recommend that you check with your doctor first for further tests. That way, if you have a disease, it can be treated properly so that it doesn't hinder your weight gain.
In addition, you should also do the following tips to help achieve a more ideal body weight:
Set a realistic weight gain target, which is about 0.5 kg per week, don't be too extreme
Eat regularly with moderate portions 3 to 5 times a day
Eat a varied menu and contain balanced nutrition
To compensate for your busy activities, multiply foods that contain high calories, for example red meat, poultry, fish, nuts.
Take breaks between your meals by consuming healthy snacks, for example juices, smoothies, non-MSG cookies, chopped fruit
Just drink enough
Complete your eating and drinking with consumption of milk or its processed products
Stay away from stress
Get regular sleep
Exercise diligently, namely 3 to 4 times a week, for example floor exercises, jogging, lifting weights
Hope this helps ..
