A 7-day weekly diet plan for underweight individuals

We cannot provide a personalized diet plan without knowing your specific health conditions, medical history, and nutrient requirements. Therefore, we suggest consulting with a registered dietitian or a healthcare professional who can provide a personalized plan based on your individual needs.

Consult a doctor online before starting any diet plan.

However, we can provide some general recommendations and sample meal ideas for underweight individuals who are looking to gain weight in a healthy way.

General recommendations:

  • Increase your calorie intake by consuming more nutrient-dense foods.
  • Aim to consume three meals and two to three snacks per day.
  • Incorporate protein-rich foods into your meals and snacks.
  • Choose healthy fats, such as those found in nuts, seeds, and avocados.
  • Consume a variety of fruits and vegetables to ensure you are getting enough vitamins and minerals.
