    Start here for some lifting routine:

    From there, its all about diet. You need to track your calories. This gives you a good starting point. Know how much you are eating. I thought I was eating a lot too but when I started counting calories, I quickly learned that it wasn't enough. If you aren't gaining about half a pound a week then you need to increase the amount of calories you are eating.

    Check www.fitday.com. Its a free way to track what you are eating.

    Olive oil is a good way of adding calories. Natural peanut butter and then carbs. Protein, you just have to eat.
