Doctor :   Choose healthy foods to add calories.
Drink healthy beverages to add calories.
Doctor :   Eat healthy food frequently, 5-6 times a day - 3 larger meals and 3 smaller meals alternately. Separate them by at least 3 hours so you can digest each meal fully. Don't go without food for 5-6 hours after having a major meal.
For example, if you wish to consume 3000 calories a day, you may eat 3 larger meals of about 650 calories and 3 smaller meals of about 450 calories.
Doctor :   Exercise regularly for healthy weight gain. Some thin people think that exercise is not good for them. This is not true, it keeps the metabolism high. Remember that eating alone is not sufficient. You don't want to gain fat but lean mass, so exercise is important.
Resistance training exercises will help to increase your muscle mass, which in turn will increase your metabolism.
Doctor :   Protein is the key for the muscle mass. Without adequate protein, muscle gain is not possible because weight training demand for amino acids (which comes from protein).
Doctor :   Good sources of protein foods: whey, fish, dairy products (low fat variety), meats, nuts and seeds (almonds, peanuts)
Doctor :   let me tell you a example of a weight gain diet
Doctor :   you need to add diary product in your diet
Doctor :   like milk is must
Doctor :   Add healthy calories to breakfast with an extra slice of whole-grain toast and butter
Doctor :   Mid-morning and afternoon snacks should be nutritious, not junk. Trail mixes contain healthy nuts and dried fruits, and can add healthy calories to your diet.
