Hi doctor,

I am a 24 year old male. My height is 5'8" and weight is 53 kg. I want to gain weight. I do not feel hungry. I want to increase my appetite so that I can eat more. I also do not eat junk foods. I have always been underweight. I used a syrup to increase appetite when I was 14. But, I did not find that now in pharmacy. Please suggest good appetite enhancer. I am very upset because of my lean look.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Have tomato soups every day at 12 noon before lunch. Have carrot and cucumber salad in the evening or mid noon every day.
  • Take a bowl of yogurt daily during lunch, which increases cravings for food.
  • Fruits like watermelon, grape, and apple will help. Have apricots with toast that tastes good and are good appetizers.
