I really don't have your problem, but I think I can help. 3500 calories generally equal one pound of fat. So, if you can increase your calorie intake about 500 calories a day, you should gain weight. I don't know if you've tried things like nuts, avocados, raisins, and other higher sugar fruits, but that can help and also keep you healthy. Also, some people react differently to certain foods. For me, I gain weight easily on all sugars, even healthy sugars such as those in fruit. But, I don't gain weight with protein and healthy fats. In fact, I lose weight with the latter. Experiment with different foods and see what works. Good luck!
