Hello there. I can understand your concern. You have not mentioned your age or else it would have been possible to calculate your BMI. i suggest you calculate your BMI by seeing the formula online. You need to take in more calories everyday than your daily required amount to gain weight. Have frequent meals. Exercise daily. Consult a dietician for further help with a diet chart. Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain.
