Underweight and confused
I am a 19yr old male, 5'10" in height and 55kg in weight. I wish to gain mass and i have started working out as well. I gym 4 times a week. For diet, i eat every two hours, and four eggs after workout, along with Optimum Nutrition protein shake. However, i have been said that rather than protein shake, i should go for mass gainer. Now the thing is, this protein shake is expensive and i cant let it go wate. However, if i consume it, it wont have a visible effect on me i feel. Pls suggest a solution. Thanks

Hello, Body mass index less than 18 is considered as undernourished person. Usually doctors don't prescribe protein powder as they may affect adversely. One should gradually increase height weight. Don't worry about visible effct check your weight regualy At least 1-2 pound per month is usually expected. have meals at regular intervals, don't skip meals , have meat ,ghee, egg, fish ,milk products etc... do exercise daily ,sleep well ,avoid worries ,
