Doctor :   if u eat fruits and vegetables
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 :   also u need to exercise
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.
Doctor :   Free weights put the most stress on muscles and stimulate the maximum number of muscle fibres.
Doctor :   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.
