First of all, you should look for those exercise which will help you in gaining weight. So you should also enhance the protein level in your food which will help you in increasing your weight.

You are healthy, if just a bit thin. I had the same body when I was young. The only thing you can do is hard exercise like lifting weights or wrestling, exercise that makes you build muscle. Don't do too much aerobic stuff like running or swimming. You don't have the extra beef to spare.
You may have to increase your protein intake. Consider an amino acid supplement to help digest and use the protein.
Men's Health magazine has great workout programs for building that you can easily do at home. They also have a good web site. Take a picture of yourself now in just gym shorts. Then start your program. In two months take a new picture wearing the same shorts in the same spot. You will see the gains. With thin guys like us, the gains come small and slow, but they last.
Good luck.

Hey, well you can start by going to a GNC store near you where the sell protein and diet supplements. Look for things that help in increasing body mass and muscle. Then eat a lot of carbohydrates and proteins. Eating too many times a day isn't good for someone with a fast metabolism because it will only increase the usage of stored fat in your body. Eat about three to four GOOD meals a day trying to leave the last one for after six p.m. That should help you gain some man bumps! Good Luck!

I have suggestions to that:

First, you have to be fit (gain weight) like:

> Eat Right

  1. Try to eat 5 to 6 small meals a day
  2. Stay healthy (focus on foods packed with vitamins, minerals, nutrients and calories)
  3. Eat protein-filled snacks before or after a work out, such as protein bars or shakes, yogurts, or fish
  4. Aim for up to 500 extra calories per day to start, and reduce the number if you gain weight too quickly or find you are gaining fat instead of muscle
  5. Whet your appetite by drinking fluids, taking walks, and spicing up your meals

Second, do the exercises that gain muscle.

To gain weight you MUST eat A LOT. I don't know why but people always ignore the obvious. If you work out and don't eat enough, you will actually lose weight. Eat until you see weight gain. If not, means you not eating enough.
