In brief: Eat extra 500cal/d

Whether you're trying to gain or lose weight, plan on 500cal/d, either more or less.
Keep that up for 7d and you'll either gain or loss a pound. Make sure your extra calories are healthy eg lots of fruits & veggies, lean protein, healthy fats such as olive oil and/or avocados. Don't forget to exercise as you don't want to gain fat weight.
