I have no idea, really. Your doctor should assist you with finding ways on how to gain weight that are healthy and effective. You may be doing this already, but perhaps you should consult a dietician (i think that's what they're called ). He/She should be able to help you.

I gain weight by eating chocolate and sitting on my butt and not really exercising... either that or eating too much overall...

I had to do a project with this girl and went over her house to complete it. She was really skinny, a 00 in pants, and needed to gain weight. While I was writing something down, she said she'd go get a snack, and I told her I didn't want anything. She came back with a plate literally piled with oreos, smeared with peanut butter. She ate those mf-ers like there was no tomorrow, and said she used the whole package of cookies. Well, she gained weight, that's for damn sure. Not a lot, but enough. If oreos smeared with peanut butter don't make you gain any weight, then I don't know what to tell you.

Mind you, I am not a doctor, and that diet is probably extremely unhealthy, so maybe not too often? Muscle weighs more than fat, so maybe you could start working out. I mean, don't become buff or anything, just enough to get some muscle. That's a healthy way to gain, and you'll be eating more food cause you'll be exhausted from working out.

Oh, I know. Eat more grain. Bread and such. If you don't burn off all of the carbohydrates, they become fat.

I know body builders and wrestlers who have a peanut butter sandwhich and a glass of milk every night before bed. That puts on bulk and is not to bad for you.. Also try getting more red meat in your diet, that will help with the sickness. Just dont go overboard..

There are a selection of products available at health food stores that can help you gain weight more healthily. They're protein powders that you mix in with milk and drink. They're usually intended for body builders who want to bulk up but they might be able to help you.

There's not so many useful pages on the net for this, but this page summarises some of the key things to do:

http://www.leonardfitness.com/10weightgaindiettips.htm

Although I think a lot of the tips have been covered already in this thread, this advice is how to do it in a more healthy way.

One big point to remember; to gain weight and stay healthy you don't want to do it too fast, exactly the same way as people losing weight shouldn't do it too fast. The recommended increase in daily calorie intake is 500 per day, which really isn't much, it's about one and a half large muffins! This will lead to a steady weight increase of one pound per week. It doesn't sound much, but after a couple of months you'll be half a stone heavier and your body won't be complaining about the sudden change.

The same thing goes for weight loss, remove 500 calories a day and lose the weight slowly but steadily, then it's more likely to stay off.

Mata's right, 500 extra calories is the generally accepted magic number. Being vegetarian, I've spent a lot of time around nutritionists and doctors. Look up the calorie content in simple snack foods that aren't junk: a banana, for example (my personal favourite) is about 100 calories. Another good idea is to have a spoonful of peanut butter as a snack. Most groceries carry protein bars; they're good too. There are healthy ways to add 500 calories, keep your diet balanced, and not feel nearly as sick and nasty as you would if you ate, say, a pack of Tasty Kakes instead. ^^

It seems like you need a different doctor. You think that if they noticed your weight as being a health problem they would tell you what needed to be done to make you healthy. Have you tried calling the doctors office and ask them for suggestions?
I am five foot five and weigh 100 pounds. I have two kids. Some people are just built small. I try to eat healthy foods I never gain any weight but my health is fairly good.
