Doctor :   Increase your protein intake. Your body needs a lot of protein to build new muscle. But since most of the calories for weight gain comes from carbohydrates and fats, do not replace them with protein
Doctor :   Consume a lot of high-calorie snacks (not junk food) such as cheese sticks, milk shakes, muffins, dried fruits, yoghurt and breakfast bars.
Doctor :   Drink a lot of fluids that supply nutrients and calories; milk, fresh fruit juices and energy drinks are good examples.
Doctor :   Focus on free weight exercises which do not require machinery that target your large muscle groups. For example, you need dumbells, not fancy gym machines.Free weights put the most stress on muscles and stimulate the maximum number of muscle fibres.The best weight training exercises for building muscle mass are free weight exercises like squats, dead lifts, bench presses, barbell rows, pull ups and bar dips.These exercises are best done under supervision, but they don't need machinery.
