Hi doctor,

I am underweight and have problem with mood attention and memory and I have been on Atomexitine and Sertaline.

How much will a 2000-calorie diet plan cost which can be prepared with ingredients available here?

And kindly give me the diet plan accordingly to daily value.



Welcome to

I understand your concern.

This is a moderate costing diet chart. Alternative foods are also mentioned.

1. Early morning, 7 a.m., three to four pieces of soaked almond or sprouts.

2. Breakfast 8.30 a.m; brown bread, four pieces and boiled egg, three pieces or four pieces of bread with peanut butter.

3. Midmorning 11 a.m., fruit juice, especially pineapple or banana milkshake.

4. Lunch 1.30 p.m. rice - 200 gm cooked, veg curry one bowl, dal 50 gm, chicken breast curry 150 gm, sour curd half cup.

5. Evening snacks 5.30 p.m. chicken stew or semolina porridge in one bowl.

6. Dinner 8.30 to 9 p.m. chapatti four pieces, rice 150 gm, and paneer curry one bowl.

I also suggest you do the following:

1. Do exercises like strength training or yoga.

2. Avoid stress, and alcohol.

3. Take plenty of water (10 glasses a day).

4. You should eat more food at each meal by forcing.

5. Before taking a meal, you can walk for some time as it helps you feel hungrier.

6. Sleep at least 7 to 8 hours per day.

7. You can take chocolates, pastries, cake, chips, butter, ghee, and paratha.

I hope this information will help.
