Thank you for choosing HCM for your queries.
When your aim is to gain weight , you should consume more calories than you burn, thats the basic theory, so you gaining weight depends totally on your diet.
Follow these tips:
1.Try eating at every 3 hours ( so basically 4-5 meals ) a day
2.Have a high protein diet ( chicken, eggs, tuna, yoghurt etc)
3.Consume natural fruit juice rather than bottled juice
4.Sleep for 6-8 hours
5.Stay away from junk food
6.Stay hydrated
7. Consume plenty of bananas
Lastly be consistent with your diet and you should pack on some pounds in a month or so .
Thank you and take care.
