Hi there...ideal weight for your height is about 70kgs. So you are slightly underweight. And it is good that you are trying natural way, rather than go for medications. You need to gain muscle mass and not fat. If you are having gastritis, take pantoprazole 40ng once in the morning half hour before your breakfast for one week. Have multiple short meals (4 to 5) instead of 3 big meals. Avoid spicy and junk foods. as you know few people have very high basic metabolism rate. It will be difficult for them to gain weight. Also one should remember gaining weight and losing weight is a very gradual process. It will a lot of time, patience and determination. You must follow a healthy diet and exercise schedule. Start having food rich in proteins like pulses, soyabeans, vegetables, fruits, egg whiteboiled , boiled chicken. Regarding exercises, start cycling or swimming, whatever you are comfortable with and enjoy most. Along with it try doing high bar excercises. You can also visit a dietician for further queries. Consult general surgeon if gastritis persists even after conservative measures.
