In brief: Exercise

Eat a generally healthy diet, with at least some fruits and vegetables and some form of protein like fish, meat, beans, etc.
And do some form of resistance exercise. That is like weight lifting, isometric exercise, push ups, etc. Just pay attention and don't hurt yourself. Increase resistance slowly and don't jerk when lifting. That will increase muscle mass.
