It may be easier to eat six or more smaller, balanced meals rather than eating three large meals, especially if you’re not used to eating much at one time. Protein powders and nutritional supplements such as Ensure can be added for in-between meal snacks. You can also make your own delicious protein shakes at home with a blender using milk, yogurt, frozen fruit, etc. Look for some easy recipes here: http://www.easy-weightloss-tips.com/weight-loss-shake-recipes.html Exchange the skim milk and fat-free yogurt for regular since you don’t want to lose weight. Most protein powders are not very tasty unless mixed with other ingredients. Exercise is an important part of healthy weight gain. Strength training is especially important and will build muscles. This can be done at home or in a gym. Cardio exercises are healthy and should be a part of your routine, but they burn maximum calories and may cause you to lose weight if you don’t eat consume plenty of calories. Limit your cardio workout to 30 minutes. Consider activities such as: power walking, jogging, biking, swimming laps, jumping rope, dancing, skating, etc. Yoga and Pilates are excellent additions to your workout as well. Here are some exercises you can do at home to help target certain areas: http://www.easy-weightloss-tips.com/target-exercises.html Some suggestions to help you gain weight: 1) Add healthy calories to your menu. Start breakfast with a slice of whole-wheat toast and peanut butter. 2) Trail mixes, nuts, dried fruits, and protein bars are healthy high-caloric snacks. 3) Drink healthy beverages such as milk and fruit juice. Avoid sweet drinks that add no nutritional value. 4) Choose the healthy option every time. Avoid fried foods. Eat larger portions of healthier foods such as baked potatoes, chicken, fish, etc. 5) Follow the food pyramid guidelines and make sure that you include all the major food groups in your diet. 6) Consume heart-healthy oils by eating olive, walnut, or canola oil in your homemade salad dressings. Add cheese and nuts to salads for additional healthy calories.

If you want to put on weight, you should work out, to insure that you put on muscle and not fat. Healthy weight gain, just like healthy weight loss, takes time and requires a conscious effort to apply good habits. Recommended Ways to Gain Weight Have meals with the right balance of proteins, carbohydrates, and the right kinds of fat (such as unsaturated and monounsaturated fats, olive oil, canola oil, pistachios, almonds and walnuts). Heinemann suggests the following ratio: 60%-70% carbohydrates, 10%-15% protein, and a small amount of fat. Eat foods higher in calories, vitamins, and minerals, as opposed to higher in fat or sugar. Pack more nutritious calories in each serving. For example, you may add grated cooked eggs to mashed potatoes, ground chicken to soups and gravies, cheese in casseroles, eggs, and soups, and nonfat dried milk in soups, shakes, milk, and mashed potatoes. If you get too full too fast, try having more high-calorie foods or slices of foods as opposed to consuming the whole thing (raisins versus grapes, granola and Grape Nuts versus corn flakes, mango slices versus the whole mango). Limit drinking beverages to a half-hour before and after a meal. Drink mixed juices (apple/berry, peach/orange/banana as opposed to one juice beverages) for a higher calorie intake. With moderation, you may add in good fat sources to meals such as nuts, avocado, olives, and fatty fish (salmon and mackerel). Snack in between meals. Nuts, dried fruits, and yogurt are good options, but it's also important to find nutritious foods that you will enjoy. Have a nutritious snack before bedtime, such as a peanut butter sandwich.

Edit Originally Answered: Is sweating good if one wants to gain weight and gain body mass?
Sweating is perfectly normal for everybody. It's one of your body's natural mechanism of eliminating excess salt and some toxins. Just be sure that you replace the water lost by sweat by drinking 3-4 litres of pure water each day (coffee, tea, soda, juice, or anything at all that has flavour or colour don't count). Always have a water bottle with you and discipline yourself to take sips every half hour or so. If you want to gain weight, then consume complex carbohydrates a little bit more generously (don't overdo it though), protein, and vitamin B Complex. And get a trainer to show you what workout routines are best for you. (You seem to have that already, eh?) Complex carbohydrates: carbs that are attached to some fibre- and vitamin-rich elements, e.g. fruit, wholegrain bread/flour, brown rice, rye bread, oatmeal, corn, fresh pasta made from wholemeal, potato with skin (not fried). The opposite of complex carbohydrate is processed or "white" carbohydrates, which you should avoid, e.g. white rice, glucose, dry pasta, instant noodles, white bread, sugar, french fries, potato without skin. Complex carbs are recognised by your insulin and absorbed to nourish your cells, therefore giving you energy. White carbs are rejected by your insulin, fails to feed your cells, get stored up as fats, and are prone to be oxidised by free radicals to create long-term problems like cancer and heart disease. I know your objective is to gain weight, but certainly you don't want to be always tired, shapeless, flabby, and full of toxins. So in any case, stick to complex carbs. Protein: these are the main ingredients for your muscle. Your best protein source is animal protein, especially fatty deep-sea fish (salmon is the best, tuna is good too) and fresh cow's milk. Other good sources for protein are chicken/white meat, eggs, legumes, yogurt, and soya. Eat 3-5 servings of protein per day, 1 serving being equal to meat or tofu about the size of your fist. If you want to learn how to use protein to your body's maximum advantage, the best thing to do is a Jewish person about a kosher eating pattern; or at least a Muslim about hallal. Fat: good fats come from deep sea fish, extra virgin olive oil, avocado, and fresh milk. Dark semi-sweet chocolate is good for you as long as you don't overdo it (no, I'm not talking about Kit Kat or Snickers... or some sugary a la creme from Godiva). Avoid fats from fried food, processed food, and meat fat/skin. Good fats feed your cells, enhance your muscles, and takes care of your organs. Bad fats make you flabby and drains your energy. Eat 6 times a day: 3 meals and 3 snacks. -Breakfast: be generous on complex carbs and protein, have 2 servings of fruit -Morning snack: protein, fruit, and a bit of carb if you like. drink milk. -Lunch: a reasonable amount of complex carbs and protein (not as much as morning), fruits and vegetable in abundance. -Afternoon snack: same as morning snack. milk. -Dinner: same as lunch, but halve the quantity. -Before bed: no carbs. protein and fruit. milk. So no, don't worry about sweating. Just adjust your eating pattern to the above and you will be completely fine.
