Doctor :   Thank you for writing to us. Here are things you need to do to gain weight: Eat a balanced meal 7 times a day The m eal should have a high protein content of at least 1.5 gm/kg of your target body weight Workout with heavier weights as heavy weights cause hypertrophy of muscles Reduce the amount of cardio you do If you do not bulk after 1 month, please see a Doctor. He will examine you to see if any underlying disease is preventing you from gaining weight. Hope this helps you. All the best.
