Understand the causes of the difficulty to gain weight
Obesity is a public health problem, difficult to control, but paradoxical as it may seem, there are people who "fight" a lot to get fat and can not.
It is important to start by clarifying the definition of thinness. The body mass index (BMI) obtained by calculating the weight divided by the squared height, when below 19 kg / m² indicates a lean individual. The thinness causes a lot of concern when the BMI is lower than 17, however we must value if this person always maintained a lower weight, but it is healthy (this thinness is the biotype of the person) or if there was a recent weight loss, for example, lost 6 kilos in 2 months, without changing eating habits significantly or potentiate physical activity.
Regarding the "lean of bad", those who eat what they like and do not get fat, there are several theories. The most relevant is the action of UCPS (uncoupled proteins) or decoupling proteins, which when in great quantity dissipate the energy consumed by the increase in the form of heat and there is no storage in the form of fat. It is known that the thinner have a higher amount of UCPS when compared to the fat and therefore eat more and do not get fat.
Among the causes for not gaining weight are: thyroid diseases (hyperthyroidism), adrenal diseases, diabetes
The first approach to treating the person who wants to gain weight is to review the diet and increase the intake of energy foods, that is, of the calories, but also of the calories. without losing sight of healthy food intake: good proteins and fats. Another important point is to observe the body composition, so that a weight gain occurs not only at the expense of fat. Including exercises that use weights, such as bodybuilding, helps to increase weight at the expense of muscle mass.
So that leanness is better evaluated and does not hide malnutrition, in doubt, consult a doctor or nutritionist.
Having a healthy diet is essential to achieve a better quality of life. The abuse of foods rich in saturated fats, sodium and sugars is a trigger for diseases like heart attacks, strokes, hypertension, obesity, diabetes and even cancer. In contrast, it is easy to include in the menu foods resistance and longevity heroes.
It is already a consensus among nutritionists that eating snacks between main meals is essential to keep the metabolism balanced and thus contribute to weight loss. But of course this snack needs to be healthy, and with the day-to-day running of the pursuit of practicality is also frequent. This is the case of manager Camila Cristina Nunes.
