Hi, as you said you are underweight and want to conceive so for that you need to get personalised diet chart from dietician. But till then you can incorporate high protein foods like milk and milk products such as paneer cheese butter in your diet. Even include dry fruits, sprouts and pulses. Also included 1- 2 serving of fruits like banana, mangoes, chickoo, as they are high in calories. If you are non vegetarian then include one egg daily. These all should be incorporated addition to meal what you eat. Since you want to conceive start with folic acid and iron supplement too.

try to eat skinned out boiled chicken 1-2 pieces twice a week, fish curry not fish fry as it is rich in vitamins, eat fresh raw sprouts everyday twice, include berries and fresh fruits like avocado,pears, apples, citrus fruits all this things are rich in fibres and vitamins.... Your morning diet should include whole egg and a glass of milk, try to repeat this in the evening also....include green leafy vegetables in your diet. Milk products like chesse,panner etc and meat can help you gain weight but since they contribute more towards fat and based on the history you have given, you need proteins instead of fat to build your body mass so avoid it. Drink plenty of water and stay hydrated. Do daily brisk walking, cycling for 5-6kms,yoga and meditation....if possible go for a trekking or join some rock climbing classes if such a facility is available in your place and do it on a regular basis which will help you in developing stamina....Consult dietitian they will do the needful.
