In brief: Eat healthy calories

To gain weight you have to consume more calories than you are burning each day.
Do this in a healthy way. Don't choose junk food or fast food. Keep a well balanced diet and make sure to get all the nutrients you need. Don't cut out exercise as it is very good for you. Weight lifting and other muscle building exercises can help you increase body mass (increasing muscles instead of fat).
