Our expert says:
Seeing that your present BMI = 19,4, which is close to underweight, it would be desirable if you could gain some weight so that your BMI = 21, for which you would need to weigh 50 kg. The diet you describe is reasonable esp if you are eating eggs and milk. To increase your energy intake slightly I would recommend that you try to include about 3 tablespoons of olive oil per day as a dressing on your legumes and vegetable dishes. Olive oil is a source of monounsaturated fatty acids which are beneficial to heart health, so they are ideal to boost your energy intake. If the stress is possibly causing your weightloss or suppressing your appetite, please discuss the problem with a clinical psychologist to help you cope and to learn relaxing techniques.
I hope you manage to gain a bit of weight.
