" What diet would you recommend for gaining weight?"
When most of us are trying to lose weight putting on weight is not as easy as it looks..
For proper weight gain, food intake should be a bit larger than your appetite, as your appetite will gradually increase to accommodate that.
When intake is more at a time the body won't burn down all the fats and the excess would be stored in the body in the form of fat. This will lead to weight gain eventually. It is always recommended that the calorie load should be from healthy food and not junk. Sugar, aerated drinks and candy are just no!
