Doctor

A:   Hi.
Thanks for your query.

Note your history that you want to gain weight, that you are eating about 100 calories and a good amount of proteins.
But you are the same for the last 3 years without any noticeable changes.

I would advise you the following along with the explanation.
- First of all please let us know your height and weight.
- What is your diet at the moment?
- Is it that your face and the body look like someone in the family and they too are of the same physique as you are- This explains the genetic factors, wherein it will be the most difficult to gain weight if there is a genetic predisposition.
- You have to consult a qualified Dietitian to know the exact requirement needed for you to gain weight as well as which foods you should use.
- Guidance of a Physical trainer as to the exercises can add to the requirement for gaining weight and good physique too.

I hope this answer helps you.
