Im having healthy diet and i take protien supplement drinking daily.im a non vegeterian and take non veg daily. i drink milk three times a day(nearly one litre). I take atleast one type of fruit daily. But there has been no improvement in my weight. Im married since 4 years and hav 2 kids of age 3 yrs old and 10 months old respectivelyI was not affected by any dieses earlier. idont hav THYROID either. yes, the only problem i hav is ' WHITE DISCHARGE" from my vagina.i had culture and sensitivity test also. It shows some bacterias are there in my vagina which is not serious. After my 2nd delivery my hair regrowth has been stopped. this also worries me..Bcoz of my thin figure i used to get stressed often which affects my family a lot. is there any hormonal imbalance? how can I gain weight? Need experts advice.

To gain weight you need to mix protein foods with starchy carbohydrates as indicated below:

Good fat gaining combinations are breads, cereals, pasta, rice, corn, potatoes or sweet potatoes coupled with meat, poultry, eggs, nuts or sea food. Peanut butter snacks and cheese sandwiches are great weight gaining combinations. The actual protein in the above combos will help to gain extra muscle tissue.

Hi Shafiya,
I actually just posted an entry about this very subject. First, let me say that you are not alone. Many women face the same challenge of being underweight, but there are ways to help you gain the sexy curves you want. Take a look at my post when you have a minute. You might find some helpful information. http://www.empowher.com/groups/diet/posts/help-i-want-sexy-curves-i-cant-seem-gain-enough-weight

I'm sorry to say I know how you feel. I'm 33 and I have a 7 year old son. I am 5'2 and I only weigh 95 lbs. I've tried the protien drinks, medication and other concoctions that didn't work. It also affects my self esteem which of course has a domino effect. I've tried to accept myself but it's hard. I also find it funny that "overweight" people can find clothes faster and easier than people that are "model" skinny =)

Hi Shafiya,

You mentioned not having a thyroid-- I'm not sure if you meant to say you didn't have a thyroid problem or you had your thyroid removed? If you had your thyroid removed sometimes not taking the medication will help gain some weight.

That being said, eating a healthy diet with added protein can help put on some weight. I know you mentioned taking protein shakes but perhaps you could also incorporate protein-rich foods such as eggs, cheese, peanut butter, yogurt as well as starchy and fibrous carbohydrates like breads, pastas, potatoes, cereals, and veggies.
Added calories will put on some weight. If you find that you continue to add calories to your diet and you still cannot put on any weight then you should visit your doctor for a complete evaluation.

Good luck!
