Need to gain weight?

Do it the healthy way

Growing during adolescence and early adulthood requires more food energy than during other life stages. You may be underweight and having a tough time keeping up with the energy needs of your body. This could be because you are growing taller, exercising a lot, or you might simply have a fast metabolism (the way your body burns energy and calories).

Sometimes being underweight can be just as hard to handle as being overweight.

Here are some healthy ways to gain weight:

Being underweight can be a problem for your immune system. You may not be getting enough vitamins, minerals (such as iron and calcium), protein, or fat for a healthy body. When your immune system is weak, you are more vulnerable to germs and medical conditions.

A few simple changes can make a big difference to your health. When you’re getting the nutrition you need, you feel great and have lots of energy.
