In brief: Support muscles

The term for non-surgical treatment for ACL rupture is "conservative management", and it often includes physical therapy and using a knee brace.
Lack of an ACL increases the risk of other knee injuries such as a torn meniscus, so sports with cutting and twisting motions are strongly discouraged. Take orally to rebuild muscle mass l-arginine with citruline, glutamine, acetyl carnitine & lipoic acid.

In brief: Exercise

With no acl you can still work out with weights in the gym and do some typed of cardio.
You can definitely eat to maintain weight.
