Hi doctor,

I am 23 years old. My diet is normal, but my body is not growing proportionately. Only my stomach is growing. My BMI is 28.14. What should I do for it?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • To remain healthy, you should start doing morning walk and join a gym if you want to build your muscles. Also, you should start eating more protein in your diet like egg, chicken and soybean.
  • Try to eat mostly at home and not outside. This thing will also help you in keeping you in good shape.
  • Do you drink or smoke? If yes then you should reduce it.

Thank you doctor,

I would like to build muscle, so started eating for every two to three hours normal meal. But, only my stomach has increased and nothing else. This started around two months back. What should I do? I am a pure vegetarian. Can you suggest me some other diet for strong muscle?
