    tips for healthy weight gain-
    1. Increasing calorie intake by 500 to 1000 calories per day can help supply the extra
    calories needed to gain lean weight.
    2. It takes time to increase muscle weight.
    Most athletes can successfully gain ½ to 1 pounds of muscle weight per week if they eat
    enough food to meet their additional calorie and protein needs for weight gain or and
    train properly.
    3. Choose higher calorie foods.
    For example, choose juices over whole fruits and low-fat milk over skim milk or water.
    4. Eat larger food portions. Don’t skip meals.
    Increasing the amounts of food that you eat at one time will help supply the calories
    needed to gain muscle weight.
    5. Eat five or more meals a day.
    Eat plenty of high calorie snacks plus meals throughout the day.
    6. Drink plenty of fluids that supply calories like juice, milk, milkshakes, and sports
    beverages.
