Dear Marv
Because this is just as much of a problem as losing weight, I wrote a number of articles on the subject of gaining weight. Click on 'Diet' and 'View old Diet & Food site' and read the articles on 'To gain weight I & II'. This info should help you. It is also a good idea to join a good gym and ask the instructor to work out a programme that builds muscle - mainly weight training and you can try one of the protein supplements - ask at your chemist.
Good luck
