Being underweight is a condition not a disease, though it seems like that when you’re trying to gain a few pounds but your body just doesn’t listen to you.
Watching people follow crash diets, spending endless hours in the gym to loose weight, where you’re not able to gain even the optimum weight for your body.
So, here we are to help you understand what makes people underweight, overweight or have a healthy weight as per their body type and size.
Three fundamental differences between underweight and healthy weight people are:
Physical or Mental illness
Poor physical or mental health can affect a persons ability to gain weight adversely. While some physical diseases can cause, nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea, making it difficult to gain weight, poor mental health can affect one’s ability to eat like depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and eating disorders, such as anemia and bulimia.
High Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR)
Basal Metabolic Rate or BMR is the number of calories required to keep your body functioning in a restful state this is also called body’s metabolism. In other words someone with high BRM is like a less fuel efficient car, it uses more fuel to cover the same distance than other cars. A person with high BRM tends to burn much more calories than people with low BMR which results in difficulties in weight gain process.
Genetics and Family History
This is one of the factors that are completely out of one’s hands. Some people naturally have a low Body Mass Index (BMI) because of the physical characteristics that run in their family.
Quick tip to gain weight naturally:
“Consume more calories than you burn in a day.”
Have a glass of Endura Mass (1-3 scoops) mixed in whole milk (full cream) along with two bananas, two to three times a day, between meals.
