Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

You are almost having normal weight for your height but still why you want to gain weight? Your diet pan should contain. Protein - 56g per day; Calories - 2000-2600 per day.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
