Any Food Suggestions for Weight Gain?

November 16, 2020 10:39am CST
I'm usually slim, and now I'm also a breastfeeding mother. I am eating but I seem to be losing weight anyway. It's very hrd for me to gain weight and now I'm severely underweight... Any suggestion on what I can eat to help me to be at a healthy weight again?

I hope there is no undiagnosed conditions like diabetes or thyroid disturbance there. You need a good protein rich diet along with exercise to gain weight in a healthy way. Banana milk shake with dates and other dry fruits is a good choice.

i'm trying the banana shakes currently, maybe I'm making it too thin ... My mother has diabetes so I think I should check it out..... I can't stop craving sweet things either. and i used to absolutely hate sweets

@Chineetah Well craving for sweet might be because of all hormonal changes that your body has faced lately. Better go for a diabetes and thyroid check up. Not good to ignore it for long.

I'm not a nutritionist nor a doctor. But by experience if you eat more carbohydrates you can easily gain weight. If nothing happens something in your metabolism process is wrong. It's appropriate to see your doctor.

Do you enjoy food? Just a little more of the foods you enjoy might help. Think of foods with healthy fats like avocado, nuts.

Yes, I love food very much, I eat anything. I got tons of avocados the other day too. nuts in my country can be very expensive though. Some people tell me to eat twice the amount of what I usually eat while nursing. I don't think that will go too well because I get totally full after eating the usual amount.

@Chineetah Maybe snacks between meals. No point eating when you feel stuffed. Nuts and avocados are expensive here. Hope you figure it out.
