Increase Calorie Intake

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for asking.

Weight gain is the result of the increased calorie consumption against your daily needs.If you do it consistently you will gain weight.

Increase consumption of high calorie food like shakes,chocolates,cereals,high fat foods etc. Have regular exercise.

Also get your sugar and thyroid levels to rule out any abnormality.

Detailed Answer:
Yes the mass gainer will help as they are XXXXXXX in proteins, amino acids and energy.
Please check your sugar levels and thyroid levels to see if there is an organic cause of low weight in your case.

You can check the calorie content of any food stuff from internet, try to take more than 500 calories per day for your requirement.

Usually the basic requirement for your age and weight is around 2000 cal. a day.Try at least 2500 cal. a day for few weeks to few months to gain weight.
