  • Keep a track on the calories: Make sure you take excess of calories than what is needed for your daily physical activity. You might use calorie calculator to calculate the calories required daily and calories generated with the diet you take in.

  • Take nutrient rich food: It is imperative that you take food rich in nutrients and maintain a healthy diet for growth. You might also take mineral and vitamin supplements to improve the quality of your diet intake. Eat whole grains, fruits, vegetables and more protein sources such as nuts, pulses, egg, etc.

  • Go for energy-dense foods: Eating calorie dense foods such as Cheese, Peanut butter, avocados, dry fruits, meat, etc would help you add in more calories to your diet. You may add butter, and cheese to your regular diet to give a boost to the existing calories you are taking in.

  • Choose what you drink: Avoid drinking zero calorie drinks such as sodas, soft drinks, tea or coffee. Go for nutritious drinks such as Fruit juices, Milk shakes, Vegetable soups, Chicken soups, Boiled meat broth, Casseroles etc.

  • Have Sweets and Chocolates: Eating a chocolate bar everyday would add in extra calories to your diet. Go for nut chocolates as they provide more calories than the usual chocolate bars. Eat sweets such as muffins, deserts, fruit pies, which provide a lot of calories.

  • Do the right exercise: Blindly doing exercise would not help you gain weight. Avoid doing any aerobic exercises such as running or walking because this only burns your calories and does not build any muscles. Instead go for resistance exercises such as weight lifting where you can actually build muscle mass and have adequate weight gain.
