    A lot of these people are talking about this Acai Berry. No need. Just eat a lot of meat tuna veggies. But with a bit more fat in them. Get normal not skim. DONT EAT JUNK. Then you will get unfit. VEGGIES AND LEAN MEAT.

    Yea, you need to start working out, maybe get in touch with the local gym. Start some sort of program, keep it fun, so it will stick! You need to pack on some muscle.
    Musclue weighs about 2X more then fat, so I’m guessing your pretty skinny, also, try to eat lots of protein for muscle development, this should all help you pack on a few pounds of muscle.
    However if you like the skinny look, or couldn’t be bothered working out, you might want to just have a consistant, but not intense program, and try to eat alot of carbs. This way, you will pack on abit of muscle, but it will be backed up by fat to.
    You probably should communicate to your doctor some more, tell her/him that you don’t understand, tell them you want to gain weight, but stay fit at the same time. Doctors can usually help with this stuff.

    i. Eat more calories

    This involves some calculation. The approximate normal daily caloric requirement for an average male who performs light activity is 2,200; for a female, it is 1,900.You need to eat around 1,000 extra calories per day to gain less than half a kilo a week.

    Do the math. Eat larger portions and eat at least five meals a day.

    Your actual caloric requirement can differ depending on your height, weight, activity level and your body’s metabolic rate.

    ii. Make smart choices

    For example, choose dairy products, Eat foods with high protein content such as beans, pulses and peas, and foods with high starch content such as potatoes, rice and tapioca.

    iii. Protein is important

    Increase your protein intake. Your body needs a lot of protein to build new muscle. But since most of the calories for weight gain comes from carbohydrates and fats, do not replace them with protein.

    iv. Snack a lot

    Consume a lot of high-calorie snacks (not junk food) such as cheese sticks, milk shakes, muffins, dried fruits, yoghurt and breakfast bars.

    v. Fluids help too

    Drink a lot of fluids that supply nutrients and calories; milk, fresh fruit juices and energy drinks are good examples.

    vi. Intensify workouts

    You need to exercise really hard and intensely to gain muscle mass.

    vii. Weights are the way to go

    Focus on free weight exercises (which do not require machinery) that target your large muscle groups. For example, you need dumbells, not fancy gym machines.

    Free weights put the most stress on muscles and stimulate the maximum number of muscle fibres.

    The best weight training exercises for building muscle mass are free weight exercises like squats, dead lifts, bench presses, barbell rows, pull ups and bar dips.

    These exercises are best done under supervision, but they don’t need machinery.

    viii. Space out your workouts

    If you have a high basic metabolic rate — which means you expend a lot of energy even at rest — you need short intense workouts instead of long periods of low-stress activity.

    ix. Be consistent

    It might take a long time, usually a few months, for the weight to actually show. Some people get frustrated and quit when they fail to see drastic results.

    Your body will only responds to a consistent schedule. No weight gain programme will work for you if you are not regular.

    Heredity does pay a major role in determining your weight. Effective weight training and a smart diet can help you exceed your genetically predetermined weight.
