Balanced diet?: First you need to rule out a medical condition causing you to have trouble gaining weight yet with frequent hunger. Your diet needs be more balanced with some fat and some carb as well since high protein diet is more conducive to weight loss than weight gain. On the other hand, if you feel well otherwise and are not anorexic, perhaps nothing needs be done. Try eating small portions when hungry. ...Read more

Does a daily banana shake helps in increasing weight?

Does a daily banana shake helps in increasing weight?

Weight loss: Weight gain depends on your total calorie consumption for a day in relation to calorie expenditure (i.E daily activity and excercise)

banyans do have a high glycemic index and 1 serving of medium banana is equivalent to 2 servings of carb i.e. 30 grams

Is a vanilla protein shake with milk frozen banana and all natural peanut butter healthy for you after weight training?

Is a vanilla protein shake with milk frozen banana and all natural peanut butter healthy for you after weight training?

Protein and sugar: After a hard work out your body needs protein and some sugar (glucose). You should try not to eat fat and /or a huge amount of sugar.
Try to find a protein shake that provides this balance. Non fat milk and a banana both provide some glucose without the fat content. I worry that your frozen shake has too much sugar and fat, which would would counter the affect of your workout. ...Read more
