you need to eat lots of protein rich food man. And if you're doing workouts, protein shakes and some amino supplements will help you out.

Two things commonly help: train less, eat more.

Gaining/bulking is about increasing your calorie intake beyond your calorie expenditure. If your training causes your body to burn 3300 calories per day and you're only consuming 2400 calories you will lose weight. Best advice is to keep a log of everything you eat for around a week, calculate how many calories you are getting (figure out protein/carbs/fat) as well, figure out how many calories you are burning per day (figure out your basal metabolic rate + what calories exercise is burning) and go from there.

Training less does not mean training less intense. Focus on compound lifts that hit more than one muscle group. For cardio ensure you are doing something dynamic such as bleacher sprints or plyometrics as opposed to grinding out mile after mile jogging. Good exercises: squats, deadlifts, benchpress, barbell row, pronated pull-ups, dumbbell lunges.

Hope this helps.

Eating fresh fruits and breakfast is very beneficial for gaining weight in short time. Take milk, chicken and good foods, it helps you more and more for gaining weight.

Do at least 30 minutes of exercise, such as brisk walking, most days of the week. The idea is to use up more calories than you eat. You need to use up the day's calories and some of the calories stored in your body fat.Fiber-rich foods are more filling than other foods--so people tend to eat less. Insoluble fiber also may hamper the absorption of calorie-dense dietary fat.In addition, studies have found that diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol and high in fiber are associated with a reduced risk of certain cancers, diabetes, digestive disorders,and heart disease. So, reaching for an apple instead of a bag of chips is a smart choice for someone trying to lose weight and stay healthy.
