Doctor :   i will give u tips
Doctor :   how to gain weight
Doctor :   r u able to follow
User :   yes
Doctor :   he approximate normal daily caloric requirement for an average male who performs light activity is 2,200
Doctor :   You need to eat around 1,000 extra calories per day to gain less than half a kilo a week
Doctor :   Eat larger portions and eat at least five meals a day,also your actual caloric requirement can differ depending on your height, weight, activity level and your body's metabolic rate
Doctor :   choose dairy products, fish and meat over bread. Choose eggs over vegetables,eat foods with high protein content such as beans, pulses and peas, and foods with high starch content such as potatoes, rice
Doctor :   are u there
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
User :   yes
Doctor :   Consume a lot of high-calorie snacks (not junk food) such as cheese sticks, milk shakes, 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
Doctor :   These exercises are best done under supervision, but they don't need machinery
Doctor :   u can also take this
Doctor :   PROTEIN X
Doctor :   along with milk once daily
User :   ok
Doctor :   for one month
