Doctor :   Eat more calories
Doctor :   You need to eat around 1,000 extra calories per day to gain less than half a kilo a week
Doctor :   choose dairy products, fish and meat over bread. Choose eggs over vegetables
Doctor :   Eat foods with high protein content such as beans, pulses and peas, and foods with high starch content such as potatoes, rice
Doctor :   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
