In brief: Depends
Why? Sports? Just want to look bigger? Ego? Undernourished? Do it for a good reason.
Depends on your age and general state of health. Increasing the amount of protein and fats in your diet along with muscle building exercises will add weight.. Nutritional supplements may be used and may be necessary. Proper diet is important, not just eating. See a nutritionist and your pcp.
