Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically to gain weight, you will be advised to eat more in quantities and eat foods with higher calories. If indeed you find it difficult to eat a lot at once, then you can try to eat more often. You can tuck your snack time between breakfast and lunch, and between your lunch and dinner time. You can also make more effort to consume foods / drinks with denser calories and higher protein.
Eating calorie-dense foods does not mean you are advised to eat unhealthy foods. Many calorie-dense foods are also healthy for you to consume. You can try to eat foods such as beans, meat with a higher fat content (for example chicken thighs rather than chest), fish that contain lots of healthy fat (such as eating fatty parts of salmon, tuna), egg yolks, fruit with high calorie content such as avocados, bananas, dates, etc. Between your regular meals, you can try eating healthy, high-calorie snacks, for example drinking avocado juice with milk, eating almonds or cashews, eating dates, etc. High-calorie and high-protein milk you may also consume to increase your calories.
You can consult further with a nutritionist to help you arrange your eating program. Some things you need to remember, don't increase the amount of unhealthy food you eat (for example sugar-dense foods, sweet cakes, etc.), don't increase your weight too fast (do it slowly), together with exercise to increase your body's muscle mass.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
