Hello doctor,

I am 31 years old with a weight of 51 kilograms. I am very weak, and I want to develop my body. Please help.



Welcome to icliniq.com.

I would like to know more details about your physical and physiological condition to prepare a customized diet plan for you. You have told me that you are 31 years old with a weight of 53 kilograms. But I need your height, too, to calculate your BMI (Body Mass Index) to prepare a personalized diet plan. Anyway, I can suggest some tips to overcome your weakness with the information you provided here. Here are some of the suggestions to overcome your weakness.

1. Take proper quantity and quality protein (1gm/kg body weight - soy protein is recommended high-quality protein).

2. Include Vitamin B Complex-containing food in your diet regularly. Foods include whole grain cereals, nuts with their bran, leafy vegetables, and fruits.

3. Avoid all junk foods such as tinned, tetra packed, or preserved foods.

4. Include polyunsaturated fatty acid-containing foods such as most vegetable oils (canola oil, olive oil, virgin coconut oil, flax seed oil) and salmon fish oil.

5. Daily exercise and yoga for 30 to 45 minutes and 15 minutes of relaxation (DRT, QRT, IRT, or yoga nidra).

If you would like to get your customized diet plan, please drop your follow-up query with details about your present health issue, body mass index (height and weight), and physical and physiological conditions.
