In order to gain mass/weight, you just need consume more calories than your body could burn. Is that simple. So if you encountered problem gaining weight, it could be just because you do not eat enough or having enough calories in your diet throughout the day. You'll need to consume excess calories above your resting metabolic rate in other words.
For my case, I am consider skinny at a height of 1.68m with only 52kg, the ideal for my height should be approximately between 55-60kg. But just because I have high metabolism, I got to consume much more calories than someone who have a lower metabolism in order to gain mass.
If you still have problem gaining weight after eating at least 3 meals a day, then you might want to consider taking weight gainer powder. I am not making any recommendation for anyone to take, but Thalassemia Patients should not have any problem taking it as I did ask for doctor advice before on that. But is always better to seek your doctor advice first, before starting to take anything. As these weight gainer powder products might result in giving your body and organs extra burdens such as the liver and kidneys.
