To gain weight it is necessary to go for high calorie diet. but consume minimum 35 g protein since it helps in muscle growth. dont go for high fat food since they may lead to hing cholesterol / triglycerides .
If your are sedentary worker keep your total calorie to 1800 kcal per day.follow 15-30 min exercise to boost your metabolism.
