Having a weight GAIN goal has come up several times but so far FITDAY can't handle it. The Fitday tools can help you track calories, exercise and help you with seeing what your calorie balance is. You might want to use another site like Bodybuilding.com to log your weight (It will let you set a weight gain goal). But they don't have the other tools that Fitday does.

You should try to have a calorie surplus of 200-500 calories per day. Increase your Protein to 30% of your calories or .75-1.0 grams of protien per pound of LEAN body weight. (If you are 165 pounds with 15% bodyfat then your lean body weight is 140 pounds and you should try for 105 to 140 grams of protein per day.)

You can't add muscle without exercise and that means Weight training lifting weights appropriate so you can perform only 4-6 repetitions before failure. Do 3 or 4 sets for each exercise.
