1

Dress well to feel good about yourself even as you strive to gain weight.

2

Track the calories you consume every day so as to know how many you need to add to achieve healthy weight gain.

3

Work out your entire body for uniform weight gain. Do not only train the muscles on your arms, chest and shoulders to avoid a disproportionate body.

4

Using plenty of spices, sauces and condiments can help with weight gain. The tastier your food is, the easier it is to eat a lot of it.

5

Instead of diet soda and other low calorie beverages, choose smoothies, yoghurts and high fat milk.

6

Exercise, especially strength training, can help you gain weight by building up your muscles. It may also stimulate your appetite.

7

Eat before bed. A lot of healing and regeneration happens while we sleep, so eating before bed can give your body the nutrients it needs to do the work.

8

Never train hungry. Your metabolism is in starvation mode and shuts right down. Aim for a minimum of at least 3 solid meals in your system before training.

9

Remember to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables as they should be a major part of any healthy diet.

10

Nut butters like peanut butters, almond butters and walnut butters are great for snacks. They are high in calories, and also high in protein. 

11

Always ask your doctor before trying a weight gaining regiment. You may not be as underweight as you think.

12

Extra virgin olive oil, safflower oil, coconut oil, and peanut oil are full of flavor and heart-healthy calories when enjoyed in moderation.

13

Get rid of anything that is fat free. Make your own salad dressing with healthy oils, rather than buying them ready made.

14

Get support from family and friends. It is a slow process and you will need the encouragement.

15

Do not drink water before meals. It causes you to fill full and be unable to eat enough food.

16

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

17

Drink milk when thirsty. Drinking whole milk to quench thirst is a simple way to get in more high-quality protein and calories.

18

Try and eat fast. Your body takes some time to give signals of satiety which is why eating fast can help you eat more.

19

Tropical fruit can help you gain weight. Fruits like mango, papaya, bananas, and pineapple are amazing choices according to food experts.

20

If you are severely underweight and are really having trouble gaining weight, it is important to seek proper treatment.
