Recently, some readers asked BuzzFeed Life for advice on how to gain weight in a healthy way.
So we spoke with Albert Matheny, C.S.C.S., co-founder of Soho Strength Lab and advisor at Naked Nutrition to come up with general ways you can improve your exercise and eating habits to healthily put on more weight.

All the stuff we talk about in this story should be taken as a general suggestion — which means it might not work for you personally. There are many reasons for why some people have a harder time gaining weight, which can range from simple things like having a higher metabolism to more serious conditions like Hyperthyroidism. If you're hoping to put on weight, you should work with your doctor to figure out what's best for you and your needs.
OK, so. Here are some things you might want to keep in mind.
