Running long distances is not going to help you gain weight.  If you are going to run, do sprints or run up a hill.

17

Nutritional supplements, in the form of food or drink, can be useful for some people who are finding it hard to gain weight.

Top it off. Add extras to your dishes for more calories such as cheese in casseroles and scrambled eggs.
