you need better protein than just cheese.

Dr. David :

the way to gain weight and to maintain insulin level is to eat foods with high protein, low fat and complex carbohydrates.

Dr. David :

brown rice, beans, fish, nuts, chicken, lean pork, egg whites, peanut butter.

Dr. David :

and along with whole grains and fruits and vegetables.

Dr. David :

stay away from refined sugar and processed foods and white flour

Dr. David :

and you also need to exercise to help gain muscle mass.
