Doctor :   An increase of about 500 kcal per day results in a weight gain of 0.5 kg per week. If a higher weight gain is desired, daily intake may be increased by 1000 kcal.
User :   and what should be my calories intake
User :   ok
Doctor :   A high energy intake is accompanied with a high intake of proteins to build up the muscle mass. Easily digestible foods like milk, eggs, and a combination of cereals and pulses should be included in the diet.
Doctor :   A high carbohydrate intake helps meet the high energy needs. Sugar, honey, cereals, starchy vegetables and fruits must therefore be included in plenty in the diet. The bulk of the food should, however, not be increased as it cuts down the food intake.
Doctor :   Fats must be used in moderation
User :   ok.
Doctor :   The diet should contain enough minerals and vitamins. Vegetables, fruits, whole grain cereals and pulses, particularly in sprouted form, help in ensuring an adequate intake of minerals and vitamins.
