Hello there. I can understand your concern. This involves a simple math, if you need to gain weight, you need to take in more calories than you use up in a day so that it gets stored up. Have high calorie diet. Have three full meals and 3 small meals in a day at regular intervals, increase the quantity gradually. Excercise regularly to build up muscle mass because building fat is not good. You can consult a dietician for a detailed diet chart. You can find good dieticians near you on practo itself. Best regards. Dr. Anil Kumar Jain.
