    Eat lots of

    Fish, chicken, tuna, pasta

    Make sure your getting enough protein. For you, I would say at least 150g a day. Others will debate that, but whatever.

    I weighed as much as you last year, and I'm taller than you. My advice is :

    It's not easy to gain weight at first, but it will come.
    I don't know much about machines, so I can't help you much there.

    I'd recommend joining a gym if possible as well, its much better, unless you're purchasing a good home setup like power rack bench olympic bar and plates. (this could be aquired quite cheaply and easily)

    yup, toss the machine and eventually just get a power rack. You can almost do everything you need in it. Get one with the whole dip station and pullup bar attached. Option #2, join a gym

    Yeah, it's usually 1-1.5g per pound of bodyweight. If you have trouble slamming all your protein with whole foods, use shakes. You can find many good recipes for high cal protein shakes.

    And Peal is absolutly correct. Try joining a gym. I have a home gym....used it moderatly for a year....but theres just nothing like the real thing :hsd:

    Yeah basically you need to join a gym to have the best results. Your equipment is alright, but I feel that it is unable to train everything.

    Regarding diet, basically follow what the people above posted (high protein/calories) and stay consistent. Don't try to save money on groceries and not buy enough.

    yeah, speaking of that. Don't try to do that stupid 1g to lb shit. Just eat lots of food, and make sure you are gaining a sufficient amount of weight a month. Weigh yourself 1 time a month and hope for 3-4 lbs in this time frame, possibly more for a newbie

    meat mostly
    some beans have a fair amount but they are incomplete proteins. a rule of thumb i go by is the (humans didnt evolve to the top of the food chain by eating veggies) mindset. i throw in veggies and fruits when i feel like it but ive lived almost primarily off of meats and protein shakes for years now and im in perfect health and exceeding all of my goals so far :dunno:. just to give you an idea, a serving of boneless/skinless chicken breast will usually be 100-120 cals and 20 grams of protein per serving. that means YOU would need to eat 8 servings a day to get your protein requirement assuming you got absolutely no protein from other sources.

    guys thanks for the info, but I still have no idea on what to do with my machine. Joining a gym or buying new equipment is out of the question

    look thru this exercise directory: http://www.exrx.net/Lists/Directory.html

    if your looking exercises for the machine, you'll want to look under "lever" style exercises.

    from what i can see, you can do leg extensions, flying pecs, pullovers, and others

    god u sound whiney

    also, why is joining a gym out of the question?

    although I probably wouldnt recomend this for you (since there's a good chance u might give up on going to the gym), 24hr in Montgomery had a deal where it was 550 to sign up, and covered your first 3 years, then 50/year after that for life.
