Eat more.

Eat big. Lift big. You can find a good starting routine here (http://www.wannabebig.com/article.php?articleid=25).

Diet is harder as it will have to be tailored to your specific needs. Aim to eat 1g of protein per lb of bodyweight and make sure you're getting enough healthy fats (fish or flax oil). Eat a certain number of calories and if you don't gain weight after a week keep increasing them until you do. Have a read of the Diet and Nutrition forum.

And here's another handy link (http://www.wannabebigforums.com/search.php?) :D

Track your daily calories and macronutrients, it helps to ensure you're eating enough.

yes but besides diet i thought id start gym, because still i need the muscle weight and not just fat weight, and to get muscle you have to work out. you got any routines for beginners? i liked the link the gimp gave me, thanks man
