"Afternoon docs, please i need to know what kind of meals i should eat more often so as to add weight. I've tried proteinous stuff, doesnt need to be helping much. Also, does the number of hours i sleep contribute to my weight addition? cause i sleep for short hours due to the nature of my work. Can this also have negative effects? "
