Start > Doctors > Resource centre > Articles > A diet in reverse (putting on weight) Part 2

Make sure that your food is well presented, and that it looks good. An attractive plateful of food is much more likely to be eaten. It is also important that there isn't too much on the plate to start with. An enormous mound of food will be forbidding. There are also some obvious things to remember. Favourite foods are more likely to get eaten as are foods that don't need a lot of chewing, cutting or fiddling with.

Sometimes there isn't an explanation for a weight loss or a failure to gain weight. Some people seem to be naturally skinny. If that is your problem, then you have to take up some of the bad habits that slimmers are always advised to avoid. So, for example, trick your body by eating when you are doing something else. That way your appetite control centre won't be able to switch off your desire to eat, and you'll eat more than you need.

Finally, never miss fixed meal times, use a bigger plate than usual, and avoid snacks that spoil your appetite. If you still can't put on weight - see your doctor!
