Thank you for your question.

Based on your explanation, we understand that you have been experiencing problems regarding gaining weight. We will try to help you out.

For your information, difficulty in gaining weight is often caused by a high metabolic rate of the body. This can happen because of genetic factors, or if you are very active in sports. Besides that, hyperthyroidism can also lead to a higher metabolic rate. We advise you to speak to a doctor regarding your problem so that a proper diet plan can be laid out for you. You can contact our doctor for a private online consultation so that we can help you further.

We hope that this answer has been helpful.
Thank you.
