I am in the same position as you. I ate a very high protein/high calorie (the good kind, all complex carbs) diet one summer and lifted a decent amount. I gained 10 lbs of muscle which is actually a lot for one summer of lifting as a hard gainer (thats what they call us skinny folk) but more than putting on weight, I got waaaay stronger, which made me feel better. of course it really only made me be able to lift the amount of weight an average person can, but thats good when you are thin if you think about it
the only problem is I went on vacation and was surfing and hiking a lot and I lost almost all the weight because I couldnt keep the carb intake up with the very high amount of cardio I was doing.
as soon as i buy a new weight set, my old one broke, I am gonna start lifting again. but there are some supplements that are not BS that can help you.
-a good enzyme, to help digest the mass gainer protein you will be drinking. you need this to avoid nasty shits
-L glutamine, helps guard against muscle cannibalization. I dont know if it works, but muscle cannibalization is your biggest enemy, and its good for other things like your heart, so why not take it?
-tribulex, a natural testosterone booster. its some herb that apparently works, and its not expensive if you buy it online. why not try it? only problem is you also get more acne, oh well
-creatine, does it hurt you? probably not, its not shown to be harmful if you drink plenty of water and take the right amount. I have never used it but I am sure it could help
-cannabis, because after you lift a good toke will help you unwind
those ones are pretty straightforward, I have looked them up online and they do what they are supposed to. the ingredients are simple and not kept secret or disputed, all that shit should work on some level, even if the effects arent amazing. oh and take vitamin b of course
