I'm a 20 year old female who's 5'6 & weighs 115 lbs. Am I considered underweight? I also have a fast metabolism that makes it difficult to gain weight

I'm a 20 year old female who's 5'6 & weighs 115 lbs. Am I considered underweight? I also have a fast metabolism that makes it difficult to gain weight

No, you're not: Hi. You're fine, and I suspect (hope?) very healthy. You're BMI is on the low side of normal because the vast majority of Americans (and the rest of the world is catching up) are overweight/obese. Eat healthily, exercise regularly, and don't smoke; I trust I don't need to tell you those things. You're fine, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise! Good luck and be healthy. ...Read more

I'm breastfeeding woman and i'm very slim i want to take planet Ayurveda gain weight pills tablets for women & men fast!- and they said 100% safe?

I'm breastfeeding woman and i'm very slim i want to take planet Ayurveda gain weight pills tablets for women & men fast!- and they said 100% safe?

Not worth the risk: The tablets help the company get richer, not help you gain healthy weight faster. Also, these types of supplements are not regulated whatsoever. If you are still breast feeding, i would say it is not worth the risk of harming your child for something that is basically snake oil. If you really want to try it, wait until you are done breastfeeding. ...Read more

Best to work with a: medical doctor, so that you are medically supervised in losing weight, planning exercise regimen, nutritional consult and not just taking weight loss shakes. You may need diet changes to go along with your exercise program that is more nutritious than using those products alone. Do it safely, and with guidance to insure your success. You can do it safely! ...Read more

Diet and muscle mass: To gain weight you have to consume more calories than you are burning. Do this in a healthy way though. Don't choose junk or fast food. Keep a well balanced diet and make sure you are getting all the nutrients you need. Don't cut out exercise as it is very good for you. Weight lifting and other muscle building exercises can help you increase your body mass. ...Read more
