    Eat foods rich in proteins but also remember to have 5 servings of fruits and veggies per day. You should consume more NON SUGAR carbohydrates like rice and pasta. Also a good dietary supplyment would be Ensure. Also eat some nuts, they're rich in healthy fat.

    If I were you I would lift heavy weights. That way you're gaining weight... but by building muscle.
