Welcome to e health forum.

With the available information and without a face to face interaction, it will be difficult to provide a proper diet advice for you.

A proper diet for you can be determined based on your medical history, your dietary habits (Vegetarian, Non vegetarian, any food allergies, etc) and a physical examination.

The cause of any poor weight gain can be due to gastrointestinal issues (Malabsorption disorders), Diet habits (Irregular and unhealthy diet habits), Chronic Metabolic disorders which either result in loss of energy or cause reduced appetite.

In case, you are in perfect health, then a diet rich in carbohydrates and protein along with exercises that help to improve your muscle bulk will be helpful for you.

Hence it would be recommended that you consult a dietician and a exercise trainer for proper guidance and advice.

I hope this helps.
