    Hello sir.It's hard to say exactly what can help you gain weight if u are already eating well.You have to understand that in the absence of disease,if you aren't gaining weight then it's most likely your genes.You have simply inherited this.are yo u parents slim or were they slim as young people.are your siblings slim.we're you once big and have now lost weight.what's your weight and height currently.?

    Hello,you can try basic things like eating three times a day and eat foods rich in carbohydrates,proteins and fats. you can also get screened for things like thyroid .can you tell me how tall you are and what you weigh. Like I said it may just be in your genes...eat better and try weight lifting.

    I am 6.1". I think I should b a little over 70 or maybe 70.. thyroid?

    With the Weight and height given,that's a BMI of 20.5 which is normal..normal range is between 18 and 25...I meant to write thyroid disease..I.e hyperthyroidism. this is a disease that increases your metabolic rate,causing one to loose weight.other symptoms are diarrhoea,excessive sweating,heat intolerance etc.doesn't sound like you have any of that.Like I said, you have got an almost perfect BMI. if you want to gain more weight,try. to eat at least 3 times a day,go to a gym and lift weights.
