While, thinner people are always considered healthier, it may not be the case every time. Being too lean and underweight can be extremely unhealthy and can result in a number of health issues. With losing muscle mass, thin people also tend to have weaker immune systems which make them more prone to infections and diseases. This can be due to poor nutrition, genetics, too much activity or other environmental factors.

Calculating an individual’s body mass index (BMI) can help doctors determine if the person is underweight. A normal weighing individual will have a BMI between 18.5 and 24.9. Anything below the lower limit is regard as underweight and anything above 25 is overweight. Moreover, having a BMI of 30 or above reflects obesity and is critical.

Healthy weight gaining methods:

If you feel too weak and have been losing weight rapidly, you must consult a doctor and a dietician for evaluation and treatment. Here are a few self monitoring weight gain methods that are healthy and won’t harm your body in the process:

Choose nutrient rich foods that help balance your diet – carbohydrate, proteins and some fat, Thinner people tend be full soon, therefore, you must eat multiple meals throughout the day, Avoid taking fluids before meals because it can affect your appetite, making you eat less, Instead of coffee, sodas and other fatty drinks, go for fruit shakes and smoothies, Top your food with cheese or a spoon of ghee, milk powder etc. to enhance taste and fat, Exercise to gain muscle weight and also to increase your appetite.

A well balanced diet is important at any time, but even more so if you are pregnant or are planning a pregnancy. A healthy diet at the time of pregnancy is essential for the growth and development of your baby.

Fruit and vegetables

Eat at least five portions of fruits and vegetable each day. Fruits and vegetables are an excellent source of vitamins, minerals, and fibers.

Starchy foods

Starch foods like sweet potatoes, oats, millet, pasta, rice, bread, potatoes, etc. are important sources of energy, fiber, and vitamins, and should make up about a third of your daily diet.

Protein
Proteins should be an important part of your diet. Some good sources of proteins include nuts, poultry, meat (avoid liver), eggs, fish, pulses, and beans.

Dairy

Dairy foods like yoghurt, milk, and cheese are good sources of calcium and other nutrients that your baby requires. However, try to choose the low fat types of dairy whenever possible.

High in fat or sugar

If you have a lot of foods that are high in sugar, fat, or both, you should try to reduce your intake of such foods. Too much sugar or fat can lead to unnecessary weight loss, while too many saturated fats may add to your cholesterol. Such foods may include spreading fats like butter, oils, fizzy drinks, pudding, ice cream, cake, chocolates, biscuits, crisps, cream, etc.

Snacking

If you need to eat between meals, try to go for healthy snacks like sandwiches, salad vegetables, plain yoghurt, vegetable or bean soups, etc.

Pregnant women, lactating women, as well as young children who are less than three years of age are most vulnerable to malnutrition. Malnutrition in children is the biggest contributor to mortality under five years of age as it causes greater vulnerability to infections and slows the rate of recovery. Malnutrition in mothers increases the risk of a number of conditions like postpartum hemorrhage, low-birth-weight babies, premature births, obstructed labor, etc.

Causes

  • The quality and the quantity of the food that is available for consumption. This includes the quality of the diet in respect to the required nutrients, the energy density of the food, the frequency of the availability of the food, etc.
  • The overall health and sanitation of the environment. This includes the access to proper health services, their affordability, safe water, sanitation, etc. The lack of proper hygiene can contribute to anemia in pregnant women, leading to malnutrition and difficult pregnancy.
  • Social Environment. The social environment in the household and the community can also have a direct impact on malnutrition.

FAQ's

 

The above mentioned foods are required to be taken more post pregnancy at the time of lactation or breastfeeding the child. During lactation the requirement of high calorie diet of additional 550 kcal & additional 25 g of protein/ day. To meet the additional requirement one needs to add the above calorie/ nutrient dense foods which also facilitate in increased supply of breast milk which is the sole source of nourishment for many infants for upto 6 months or a year for promotion of infant growth & development. Therefore, the relationship between maternal nutritional status and lactation performance is important.

During the last 3 months your body needs extra 200 calories a day. So you need to increase the number of meals & have small frequent meals comprising of whole wheat, brown rice, fruits & vegs as they have more fibre & high satiety value . Avoid maida & refined cereals like suji, white bread, white rice. Also try and have a light snack before bed time like either a toast with peanut butter; fresh fruits & vegs; hard boiled eggs; cottage cheese; dry fruits; banana; milk with cereal ; few crackers with cheese.

During pregnancy, it is very difficult to control those cravings for unhealthy foods. But researchers have found that mothers who eat junk foods while pregnant are more likely to have children with mental health problems. So moderation is the key. Everything is okay in moderation so you don’t beat up on yourself. Stock your fridge & home with healthy snacks so whenever you get these cravings eat it before you really get hungry for junk food & then you can take a pieces or two of pizza or bite into a burger or few fries to overcome your cravings.

Give yourself 2-3 hours to digest your food before you retire to bed. If you suffer for nausea, take a light & bland snack before bed time like a cracker.

The normal protein requirement for an adult woman is 50 g/ day. The requirement increases during pregnancy by 15g / day.

Besides milk, protein is found in fish or poultry, legumes , pulses, peanuts & other nuts like almonds, walnuts etc. For Vitamin C , citrus fruits like lemon, orange, amla etc to be included in the diet. Iron allowances can be met by enriching the diet with extra supply of whole grain cereals, green leafy vegs, dried fruits & jaggery. No major foods to be avoided except processed & highly preservative foods like MSG etc. Also raw eggs or uncooked poultry , fish or organ meats to be avoided.
