Be Aware of your Natural Body Type
Genes are mainly involved in the physical build and musculature of a person. People who are thin by nature but healthy need to analyze the physical nature of their parents and siblings.

It is easier to gain weight for people who have lost it due to some surgery or illness than for people who are thin by nature.
Stay away from Unrealistic Promises and Supplements
The same concept is followed in the case of weight gain as for weight loss: “miracle” products are constantly promoted and advertised. The advice remains the same either way: if it sounds too good to be true, it probably won’t work. Instead of wasting money on expensive supplements invest the same on eating healthy nutrient-rich food.
Gaining Weight Doesn’t mean Snacking on Unhealthy Foods
The perfect way to a healthy weight gain is to add calories in a nutrient-rich manner. Indulging on empty-calorie foods like soft drinks, candy and chips is not going to help you to build muscles, strengthen bones or repair tissue after surgery. Gain weight shrewdly by including nutrients from all the food groups.
AVOID FRAUD. EAT SMART.
