Hi sir, I can understand your query. In order to gain weight, you need a combination of balanced diet and exercise schedule. Your diet must b planned according to your high metabolic rate, giving you sustained release of energy and increased protein throughout the day. Im terms of exercise,you need to indulge in weight training, which would be extremely helpful in building your muscle mass. You may visit a nutritionist for your diet planning and also decide to enrol in a gym program soon.
