Well, i'm super skinny and I have been trying to gain weight lately (which obviously isn't working as im a super hardgainer), but i'm confused from reading a few stuff around. Any help is appreciated.
I read that you need to do strength exercise to build muscle whilst gaining weight. Why do they always recommend this in muscle. Isn't muscle exercise tiring and just uses up your calorie intake, hence reducing your weight gain. I tried slouching around and eating all easter holiday to gain weight, and it never worked well. Should I really be exercising on top of that?
Also, what kind of foods to eat? Where i'll read one thing is good for weight gain somewhere, i'll read its bad for weight gain somewhere else. For example, vegetables. Does it matter how MANY calories you consume for gaining weight, or can some food actually make you lose weight?

What worries me if I can barely gain weight without gyming, with gyming taking up excess calories it'll be so much harder for me to make progress?
Also, for building muscle in this way as mentioned by post #2 can pull ups with an apparatus at home or push ups (both with a revised technique) work decently too?
