    I'm roughly 5'7" and currently weigh about 8 stone. So as far as my BMI is concerned I'm underweight for a male.

    Any tips regarding getting my weight into the 'healthy' zone closer to 9-10 stone?

    Take in more calories whilst getting a good exercise regime in place. So long as calories in is > calories out you should get more bulk. Eating more alone could be faster but results would be less aesthetically pleasing.

    If you already consume more calories than seems normal for your build then see your GP to check for any underlying health problems that could cause weightloss/difficulty maintaining weight.

    Calculate your TDEE using the link above and eat more than that amount of calories a day and you will gain weight. If you eat about 500 calories more a day you should gain about 1lb a week (1lb of fat = approx 3500 calories).

    If you don't want to just gain fat but also want to gain muscle then eat a high protein diet and follow the advice in the FAQs on how to best build muscle.

    Learn to eat. Apps like MyFitnessPal can help you track how many calories you need to eat per day

    It can be very difficult actually, there's no need to post insensitive, unhelpful comments.
