He's been through depression and it has affected his weight a lot and it seems very difficult to gain some. Also I have done enough research and found out that he lacks dopamine and serotonin in his body. I just wanted to know that is the weight gaining gonna have some impact on these two neurotransmitters and how should we frame his diet chart so that we get the best results.

Hi..... Only calories won’t add to your body weight,include the right amount of proteins to your diet. Remember, if you want to put on weight and look fit, you need to build muscles not flab. Eat - Eggs, lean meat, fish, pulses, sprouts, and dairy products that rich sources of proteins. Fish such as tuna and mackerel are rich in oil and are one of the best ways to increase weight.....
