Dear Kiran
First of all let me tell you that you are not under weight. Your weight according to your height is normal. It should vary from 51 to 60 kg. But still if you want to increase your weight then take Banana shake every morning on daily bases. Do it for 15 days and see the results.

Hiii, I m 22 years old. N my height 5'6. And my weight 42 kg. I want gain some weight. But from 4 year I still remain the same...
28 Feb 2017
Dear Soumya I suggest you to have protein rich diet. Every morning have a glass of banana shake. Make a diet plan and eat a healthy diet. Go for regular exercise. Join some yoga classes. It will take some time, but you keep on have a good diet. Avoid the synthetic supplements that are available in market, as they may cause some bad effects if you take them for long periods.

Dear Namrata
I suggest you to go for regular exercise and have a glass of Banana shake every day. In summers you may take more shakes like Mango shake. Have a protein rich diet and eat a healthy diet with more fruits and green vegetables.
Do not take any other medication for this. Just have a healthy diet.

10 May 2017
Dear Dhvaani
Have Banana shake every morning.
Eat a healthy good diet of fruits and vegetables. Do not eat heavy diets at your dinner. Go for regular exercise. As you are in your growing age. I was also very thin at your age. But then at the age of 25 i was good and fit. so do not worry about. Avoid any supplement.
