Advice

To gain you need to eat more calories than you burn. Here's a list, which you can keep adding to your daily foods to increase your calorie intake on a daily basis:

Prefer calorie-rich foods like bagels, granola, avocados, olives, biscuits, corn, nuts, peanut butter, milk, meat, yogurt and cheese.
Append superfluous calories to your banquet by using milk as a substitute for water for soups, sauces and hot cereals.
Snack on yogurt, crackers, shakes, and dip.

Once you have the calories just where you want them, you need to advance to the next level. And that is lifting weights. This increases muscle and reduces the fat you had consumed to increase the calorie in your body. So this will guarantee you will not go to the other extreme of skinny state i.e. obesity. When you start weight lifting make sure you do so under a trainer only. This is because if you venture on this alone, you might end up fracturing body parts or tearing your ligaments. The exercise schedule should have longer recovery periods in between them. Once you commence on weight lifting make sure that your diet does not come down. So all those who want to gain muscle just stop cribbing and start eating.
