Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

To gain weight your energy input needs to be less than your energy output.
This means decreasing activity and increasing your food input.

In terms of food you would need to : (1) increase the frequency of your meals
(2)increase your portion sizes
(3) use healthy high calorie foods such as potatoes, avocado, peanut butter, nuts, olive oil
(4) add dressings, mayonaisse, butter to your meals to increase the calorie value
(5) try not to fidgit- this actually expends energy
(6) strengthening exercises will increase muscle mass

I hope this helps
