Gaining muscle takes the same amount of focus and preparation as losing weight. Some important facts about gaining muscle: •You can't necessarily gain muscle without gaining some fat as well. •There are no magic foods, powders or pills that will allow you to gain muscle and lose fat at the same time. Some people can do this naturally (again, the genes), but most will gain some fat along with the muscle. •Your body is very different from a bodybuilder--trying to gain mass to look like them is not the best idea. They have different muscle fibers than you and some may even be getting a little help from illegal substances. •If you're a teenager, you'll have a hard time changing your body dramatically. It's changing constantly and it will change even more as the years pass. •Gaining weight requires eating more and lifting more Gaining muscle requires that you eat more calories than you burn. For those with high metabolisms, that may seem impossible, but if you try a few of these tricks, you'll find that adding calories to your day is easier than you think: •Choose calorie-rich foods like granola, bagels, biscuits, avocados, olives, corn, meat, nuts, peanut butter, milk, yogurt and cheese. •Add extra calories to your meals by using milk instead of water for soups, sauces and hot cereals. •Sprinkle powdered milk into casseroles. •Add calorie-rich foods (like avocado, cheese and dressing) to sandwiches and salads •Mix beans, meat or cheese into pasta or side dishes •Snack on yogurt, shakes, crackers and dip •Keep a food diary for a week or so to get an idea of what you're eating and where you can add more calories The trick is to add calories without adding too much saturated fat. You can also consider downing smoothies or meal replacement shakes in between meals. Lift, Lift, Lift Once you get your calories under control, you need to start lifting weights. This will help you gain more muscle and help minimize the amount of fat you gain (although you should expect to gain some fat as well). Folks trying to gain muscle should: •Lift heavy. This means lifting enough weight that you can only complete about 6-8 repetitions of each exercise. The last few reps should be difficult--the last one should be really hard, but not impossible. •Have longer recovery periods between sets •Have more recovery days between workouts •Use spotters to avoid injury •Continue with cardio, but keep it at maintenance level--around 2-3 days of cardio a week to keep your heart in shape •Start with a full body program 2-3 nonconsecutive days a week, if you're a beginner. Allow your body a few weeks to get used to lifting weights before you tackle more intense routines.

If you wanna gain fat, then listen to other people when they say, "eat, meat, chocolate, milk dairy products with alot of fat". But if you wanna gain mass, you need to eat right and exercise. Your main goal should be gaining muscle mass, not fat mass.What i suggest is do a lot of research online on how to gain mass and exercises. Then get a gym membership and start working out. I would suggest getting a trainer if you can, it might be a bit expensive but its worth it. You work with your trainer for a month then after that you get the hang of it and you can exercise on your own. Don't make the mistake listening to people when they tell you, "use this supplement or eat this or that" do your own research read as many books as possible so you don't end up hurting your self.

Eat alot! And i mean alot. Youll have to stuff yourself, primarly with healthy lean foods and alot of protein. Eat alot and lift heavy weights in the gym. Check out bodybuilding.com forums nutition section. Itll help you calculate how many calories you need to eat to gain muscle.

You may just have that kind of body, but if you want to bulk up, your diet might help. Eat lots of protein to build muscle and make sure your calorie intake is sufficient for the amount of activity you do.

*Eat protein like there's no tomorrow - if you don't want to eat too much food take supplements (like shakes and bars) *weight training and other form of resistance training are the best ways to build muscle (pushups and resistance bands are forms of resistance training that you can try if you don't have access to a gym) *slowing down your metabolism: http://www.livestrong.com/article/69031-...

use a dash of cinnamon to give fruits such as bananas and melons a richer dessert feel without the sugar

It might be to early for you to start weight lifting, but definately do pushups and other body weight exercises. Eat a diet high in protein, fats, and carbohydrates.
