Welcome to Healthcare Magic
You need to take diet rich in carbohydrates and proteins to build mass. Eat fruits like bananas, chickoos, apples, mangoes which are rich in carbohydrates. Eat more eggs, soya food, nuts, rice. Do graded weight lifting exercise to tone the muscles. Drink plenty of water. Exercise daily by brisk walking for 40 minutes a day.

Hello shrikanth;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The ideal weight for your height of 5'11" is between 65-80 kgs so at 51 you are definitely underweight.First get investigated to rule out any disease like hyperthyroid;tuberculosis if you have which is hampering your increase in weight.If the reports are normal then you can start taking a heavy diet with lots of carbohydrates;and proteins and you will start gaining weight.So you can take egg;chicken meat if you are a non veg and soya protein or even protein powder added to your food if you are a vegetarian.Drink milk;eat green leafy vegetables and all sorts of food you like.You can even consult dietitian and get a diet chart to increase weight.
