Muscle Growth

I have problem of constipation and slow metabolism from last few years. Also i am not able to gain weight as well as muscles. My body weight and muscles are constant from many years. At same time i am having good diet. I avoid outside food. I am suspicious that my thyroid gland may have caused this and is not working properly.

Hi..... Only calories won’t add to your body weight,include the right amount of proteins to your diet. Remember, if you want to put on weight and look fit, you need to build muscles not flab. Eat - Eggs, lean meat, fish, pulses, sprouts, and dairy products that rich sources of proteins. Fish such as tuna and mackerel are rich in oil and are one of the best ways to increase weight.... Get your hormones checked....
