Hello Everyone, before I start I'm not sure if this is in the right forum or not, ... but my name is Jamie, I've just recently joined this site and read some interesting things already, I've been skinny my whole like (in 21 years 4 month) and I'm wanting to change that, I currently weigh 123lbs and I'm 6'3. My goal is to put some fat on my by my holiday in June (going to be a struggle I know) but surely I'll be able to gain a little bit, My weight has stood in the way of me getting what I want, I hate taking my shirt off in the summer, because my ribs show and it's a real problem, I can just eat and eat and not gain any weight, but I suppose you have to eat the correct meals at the correct times. What would you gues recommend eating (eating plan etc) if I'm looking to gain abit of weight by June? I'm scared to go to the gym, feel like the other guys will just sit and laugh at me haha, I have have some weights of me own but not much.... so any help that you people could give would be very very appreciated, meal plans what to eat and when
(I find it better to make a eating plan so I know I have to eat the meal at the set time every day)

You need to stop under-eating, that simple.
This is the largest factor in your success, learn the basics to get started and then move into more advanced if needed.
Sources and More Information
TRAININGStart with a solid beginner routine, these are designed to get the most for you; they are designed by professionals and use progressive overload. Read through them and pick the one you like most, follow it as it is written.

Remember one thing, supplements are only that; they supplement something and are never meant to be replacements. A multivitamin will not replace fruits and vegetables, a fat burner will not replace a caloric deficit, and a meal replacement is not meant to be your only source of calories.
This is a brief run down of the 'basics', for further breakdowns of specific ingredients (like Yohimbe, Forskolin, Glycerol, ect) more research on your part would be needed.

Spoiler!Short cuts to success are often paved with lies.
