hi ganesh.. these foods are good for weight loss and not weight gain.. all you need to do is start weight training in the gym to increase muscle mass.. have foods like eggs, chicken, fish, potatoes, bananas, rice etc.. you can opt for dry fruits milkshakes, peanut butter sandwich, egg sandwich, potato can add skim milk powder in shakes, porridge, curds can also take weight gainers avaiable in the sports supplements shop to help you gain weight..avoid junk and fried as that will only increase your fat %..drink lot of water.. sleep well..

Hi Ganesh,

Welcome to HCM.
What you are eating helps to prevent weight gain.
When people are struggling to loose weight why are you trying to gain weight? In the present world most of the diseases are caused by over weight.
If you still want to gain weight:
if you are non-vegetarian eat meat, egg etc.
If you are vegetarian, eat rajma, all kinds of Dal, add liberal quantity of ghee in your food, eat more fried food.
