This is stupid. If you have a fair bit of weight to lose, then you will want to forego the running until you have lost the weight and THEN start running and cardio. Otherwise, you stand a good chance of furthering the damage your weight has already done to you knees and ankles/feet. The distance you need to run in order to lose weight is not sufficient to be used as a weight loss program. After you have lost the weight THEN start running to build up endurance and body toning.

Thanks for your caring reply, but I achieve the weight loss by regularly doing running exercise in my life. I am young and fit, so I don’t bother about the leg pain. May be the old age person only feel about the leg, knees pain.

Hello, gaining weight is simple but gaining weight healthily is tricky.

For the general public who are underweight and looking to gain weight, you should be looking at caloric surplus.
The speed to gaining weight depends on individual's goals and timeline. Firstly, you need to find out your daily basal metabolic rate then add in any calories expenditure(exercise, heavy
work etc.)

Secondly, intake of food should be more than ur total calorie expenditure to achieve caloric surplus.

Lastly, the speed of weight gain depends on individual goals. 1kg = 7700cal. Thus, if u have a caloric surplus of 7700cal in a week, u'll gain 1kg in a week but it's not going to be healthy. Everyone's body is different, you should know ur body better than anyone else. Eat according to what u can handle, ideally will be 200-400g of weight gain per week.

Hope this helps.

Why do you want to gain weight? The best way as others have suggested is through building muscle, so hit the gym. This in turn should also increase your appetite!

Eat more than what you normally consume. Take supplements such as protein and mass gainers. These will increase the weight you will gain substantially :D

To gain weight (assuming muscle mass and not fat), one need to look at the following:

1) Body type - this will affect how easy or difficult one put on muscle mass & the type of exercises you need to focus on.
2) Balancing blood sugar - low blood sugar will trigger our body to break down amino acids (protein) in our muscles. Thus, one need to know how to balance this.
3) Protein intake - protein is the building blocks of muscles. Our body can only absorb about 25 - 45g per seating. So, need to know how much to eat and when.
4) Sleep - insufficient sleep will affect our hormone level including testosterone which is very important in building muscles.

most people would think of exorbitantly priced weight gainers at supplement stores. But NO!

Weight gainers are essentially whey protein but with massive amounts of sugar, sorry.. compounded sugar that causes insulin spikes called dextrose or maltodextrin. And its pretty much yoyo dieting, more of a temporary cause.

Where to buy protein powder in singapore?

Go for the permanent and better solution with just normal whey protein isolate with minimal sugar.

Aim for 0.5kg of weight gain per 1-2 weeks for permanent gains. Hope this helps!

It could be your stomach flora and fauna, so try eating more yoghurt etc, but u can also buy good quality probiotics to help balance out your level of good bacteria, I use the one available in Guardian, it is from New Zealand, quite good. Some drink apple cider vinegar with honey to achieve it, u can also use quality black seed oil, that really works, buy the ones from Turkey as that has the best TQ anti oxidant quality, I got mine online from FIQ Herbs.

I totally forgot to also mention : normal MILK that you see at the grocery store daily is a very efficient weight gainer! I bought Meiji, HL, Greenfields, Magnolia.. found that HL and Meiji are the most friendliest to the tummy.

GOMAD : Gallon of Milk a Day.

It helped me ALOT during my powerlifting younger days where the bigger the muscles, the stronger we are. Combine with Whey Protein and blend em for a wonderful chilled smoothie to drink under the hot Singapore sun..
