Are you trying to put on some weight? If yes, then do not resort to medications as they may adversely affect your health. Instead of medicines, in such a situation, go the natural way with foods that you can find in your kitchen pantry. Here are five effective healing foods that might help you increase weight: 

Banana and Milk

One of the classic combinations, bananas and milk, are the most accessible sources of weight gain. This is because bananas are replete with fibre, combined with milk; it makes for a wholesome meal. That is why two bananas and a glass of warm milk or a banana shake can be an excellent way to begin your day. Both banana and milk are rich in calories and protein, which help increase your weight and keep you energetic.

Sugar and Clarified Butter

Ghee has been used for centuries and is considered rich in good fat, while sugar is rich in calories. Thus, it can help you gain weight because calories and fat play an essential role in it. You can mix a teaspoon of sugar and ghee and consume it every day. Ghee-laden chapatis have always been a tradition in Indian cuisine.

Mango and Milk

Just like milk and banana, you can also consume mangoes with milk to gain weight. For this, you can prepare a healthy mango shake for breakfast (every morning) or consume them separately if you want. Protein, carbohydrates and fat are found sufficiently in milk, which can gradually help you gain weight.

Dried Figs and Raisins

Soaked nuts in the morning have been hailed for multiple health benefits. Both dried figs and raisins are found to have high calories and are most beneficial for weight gain. For this, soak 30 grams of raisins and some dried figs in water overnight. Then, consume the next day in the morning with milk. 

Peanut Butter and Bread

Consumption of peanut butter can help increase weight. But you must regularly include it in your diet; for instance, you can have peanut butter sandwiches for breakfast. On the other hand, it is a good source of calories, and it is also rich in nutrients like protein, carbohydrates. 

In the end, moderation is the key. Anything excess may lead to complications, depending upon your body. Always consult an expert before adding anything to your regular diet.
