The Cause Of Weight Gain Does Not Increase?
, I’m 17 years old. Grade 3 high school. In the past, when I was in junior high, my body weight was almost 42. But, after I entered high school, my weight almost never went up, and always dropped. I’m now 155 cm tall. I wonder why?
Good morning, thanks for the question
To determine a person's nutritional status, a body mass index (BMI) is checked which includes weight and height. Classification of the results of IMT examination can be underweight, normal, overweight or obese. Based on your current BB and TB data, then classified as underweight or BB is less than checking the IMT.
Weight gain does not increase due to more energy used than energy from food that enters in a day. So there is no energy reserves stored as muscle and fat. In conditions with severe energy shortages, muscle cells break down to meet the energy requirements needed, so that weight loss will decrease.
However, some conditions also cause energy metabolism disorders in the body so that the impact on body weight that does not go up, such as thyroid hormone disorders, malabsorption, tuberculosis, malignancy, worm infections, and so forth. To rule out the possibility of the above conditions, do a doctor's examination. In addition, vitamins are often misunderstood as a shortcut to gain weight, even though the fact is that food vitamins only replace micronutrients that are not sufficient due to lack of food intake. To increase weight still needs diet modification.
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 between heavy meals
4. Consume foods high in carbohydrates and high in protein such as meat and dairy products
5. Avoid fast food
6. Non-aerobic exercise
7. Get enough rest
So, hopefully it can be useful
