    I've had the same problem, though not being as thing as you, but couldn't really gain weight either. Never really being hungry
    I'm not in the mood for food in the morning, so only thing i really could eat was milkproducts, like yoghurt.
    Turned to drink weightgainer instead as breakfast(with milk), biking to the place i should (7-15 km away). Biking fast obviously since i don't want to spend my entire day on the bike :P
    Gains you some weight on the legs.

    When i'm not being active i lose weight, because i eat too little, thought it feels allright.
    Trying to eat varied food, with a good amount of meat in too, which i want when i'm active. Otherwise i can't be arsed to eat anything
    Drinking weightgainer before i go to sleep.
    That last part can be troublesome if you're prone to sugar-rushes, but it has stopped for me after a while.

    Edit:
    Should maybe add that i went from 60 kg to 71 kg in a few months, but i was a bit extreme with the activity too :P

    Hey I was in the same predicament as you a year back. Was 62 kg for 1m83 age 25. I'm now 84kg after a year mainly thanks to workouts and strict diet. Pm me if you want help, could give you a few tips.

    I would also like to become more flexible especially with my legs, since i have knee and feet pains in the joins, or rather it rarely hurts but mostly makes crackling noices.

    My food habits for a week is pretty poor, i mostly eat pizza 3 days a week with the others being kebab / burgers for lunch.
    In mornings i eat 1 Litre yogurt and some other good for stomach thing.
    my late evening snack is sandwiches! i do those french looking long ones with a ton of butter and cheese and sometimes ham, i like those alot.
    i use up a large cheese (1kg 28%) and a (0.6kg 70%) butter pack in less than 14 days.
    I also dring loads of coca cola like 1 - 2 litre a day depending on temp outside and work load.
    and i also drink pear juice to, like 1 litre a day.


    What am i doing wrong and what can i improve to gain weight?

    PS, i never ever get hungry even if sometimes can go without food for days. its like i don't have that feeling.

    These are very very bad methods/habits you need to change. You want to go heavy on carbs and protein. The diet you have seems to be a mere attempt to gain unhealthy fat. The cracking noises you are feeling are directly linked to your very poor diet.

    Also you will need to EXERCISE, a lot and REGULARLY, all you are doing is consuming sugary foods and letting your body burn it off thanks to your very high metabolism. With a proper diet (aim for 3000kcal a day with proper proportions of protein) and one which you will STICK TO and the right excercise, you'll notice healthy weight gain within a month.

    Your diet should be more based around PASTA RICE CHICKEN BEEF MILK CEREALS BANANAS NUTS WATER/JUICE

    Edit:
    This product is great for us guys with ridiculously fast metabolism (once again provided you stick to a food plan and exercise)

    Only problem is it is pretty expensive as you can go though 6 kgs a month easily.

    Many great answers once again!
    Yeah i really need to get started with some serious workouts.
    I have made myself a solid pull up bar and mounted it in a doorway, kinda fun to do those pull ups tbh. Maybe i am cheating since i have such a low weight but i can do pull ups for along time before feeling it. I used it for simple stuff like 1 and 2 handed pull ups and i also figured a way out to get my feet up there and do some stomach training to.
    Think it wont hurt to use it regulary.

    Regarding food, i shall increase my intake of pasta and rice since i like those anyway.
    I'm a stranger, I'm a changer.
    And I'm danger... maybe...

    Improve your diet plan, take healthy and balanced diet to gain your weight.
    Eat more natural and organic rather than processed and junk foods to gain healthy weight.
    Eat more protein based foods rather than fats and fried foods to gain your muscles weight rather than fat.

    That way, you will gain FAT in a very very unhealthy way. You'll end up being a skinny legged/armed guy with a huge bulk of fat on your hips. I'm assuming that's not your goal.

    Try eating more pasta's, do some lifting. You'll grow more steady and in a healthy way.
    I disagree with you, speaking from experience.
    I had 70-75kg at 1.90cm and felt skinny, ate a lot of junk fast food and gained body mass everywhere, up to 95kg. Then I lost 10kg, then started being less stressed and got a job again, ate a lot of different food, mostly cold one, and I'm up to 99kg. I could lose a few kilograms, but I'm pretty evenly distributed, except the belly a bit.
    Regardless, he said he wants weight, not muscles. It's really weird, because with his diet he should've gained a lot of weight, so it's either a medical condition or something he's doing wrong.

    One thing I'd cut down is that huge amount of Coca Cola. High fruit concentration non-carbonated juice is OK. If anything, the coke keeps you from gaining any weight.

    What am i doing wrong and what can i improve to gain weight?

    PS, i never ever get hungry even if sometimes can go without food for days. its like i don't have that feeling.
    Here is just some general advice.

    For exercising while protecting your joints, as you mention you had problems. For cardio, I suggest you take up lap swimming and bike riding. These two activities greatly reduce the strain on your joints. Swimming being the best of the two and can actually help improve joint pain and discomfort.

    For flexibility, yoga hands down. People may scoff at this, but if you really want to improve your flexibility give it a go. You do not have to go to a class, there are 1000's of online tutorials and classes you can do in the comfort of your own dwelling. Swimming will also increase flexibility a bit.

    I would do the Yoga daily and the cardio, either swimming (preferred) or biking 4 times a week for 30-60 minutes.

    To gain mass, first start with eating and then weight training. Eating is the biggest factor in gaining weight or losing weight properly. You need to give your body the fuel it needs to perform. Here are the guidelines I am going to provide you.

    1. Stay aware from highly processed foods
    2. If it is sweet and it does not contain sugar, stay away from it. Anything with artificial sweeteners or High Fructose Corn Syrup is bad. If you want something sweet have it once in a while, but get the real stuff.
    3. Fruits in the Morning and Veggies Midday-Night. Fruits give you a big boost of energy and are good in the AM to get you going.
    4. Black Coffee or Dark Tea will help you keep energy levels up, stay away from energy drinks
    5. Get a supplement for protein intake. Whey would be fine for you since you do not seem to have a lactose issue. Take 1-2 scoops every day you workout.
    6. Cut down red meat. Have it once a week as it is high-fat and cholesterol. Get yourself some good poultry and fish.
    7. Get some fish oil, joint repair, and a multi-vitamin. The joint-repair will be a glucosamine and chondroitin mix. You have to take it for about 3 weeks for it to build up and make a difference. It made a huge difference for myself and my father's knees after all the sports damage we took when we were younger.
    8. Eat around 2200-2500 calories a day and have one day where you splurge having whatever you want ending on 3500 cals or so. Dieting is no fun, but having a cheat day will break the monotony and keep you honest throughout the week

    So now onto weight training. For mass gaining you are going to want a nice day rest between your lifts, especially while acclimating to lifting. I would break up the four days like this.

    Day 1 = Chest and Triceps
    Day 2 = Back and Biceps
    Day 3 = Shoulders and Weighted Abdominals
    Day 4 = Legs

    Heavy lifting is what you need to be doing, but only...ONLY... after you learn the proper form. If you do not know them, most gyms can provide you with instruction and/or a trainer. Be sure you have the form down correctly before attempting. Poor form will lead to many problems. To protect your joints I would also recommend not doing full range of motion, never lock out your joints. Always keep a bend in them to not put a ton of pressure on them at the extremes. To gain mass you have to be doing heavier weight, so you are looking at 4 sets of 6 reps each once you get your form down pat. Working on your form you will be using much lighter weights and for more reps to allow you to concentrate on form rather than weight.

    All I can say, from someone who started power lifting and went from 220lbs --> 315lbs is good luck. It takes time and patience, but it works. Just do not get frustrated, gains take time and will come slowly, but surely. Losing is just as hard as now I am back to 215lbs, since I am no longer powerlifting due to an old injury that required me to A. lose the weight or B. have surgery. I choose the weight as surgery is permanent and I would rather not be sliced into if it could be avoided.

    Good luck on your journey op and I hope you reach your goal.

    Got the same problems as you OP, and I don't know what causes it.

    Belive if you will or not, but I haven't gained any weight inn about 3 years. Im about 170 CM/50 KG. So yes, about as skinny and frail as you can get. I would loss inn a fight faster than you could swing at me, cause Id run haha.

    I eat plenty, every day. Hell some days you could say I eat to much. I eat anything, also healthy sometimes. Trough I could eat fruit more often.

    Im trying to get exsercise regulary for some years now. Currently Im into running for soon ½ a year. I ran 17 KM's some days ago, witch fucked up my legs, cause I again over-did it, so taking a rest, then I will continue. My goal is to run ½ a marathon eventueally, if I can train my body up to it. Its funny, I tough Marathon runners just trained cause, well, to not get tired, but the pain and suffering to run that is the worst obstacle, you wear down your body so bad. My 17 KM's fucked my 1 leg up so bad, I coulden't bent it inn a 90* degree for 2 days after it Just getting on my bicycle still hurts like 5-6 days after. Anywho now days with some training I can run 10 KM's under 55 minutes, always, and hopefully I can get below the magic 50 minutes line (Running 1 KM/ 5 minutes dosen't seem like much, but it is).

    But despite having average good health (I even went to a physical check up with my doctor, all fine) and eating enough, I cannot gain weight. Currently on my desk I got a can of soda, chips and coockies, and for dinner I had 2 nice burrito's I guess you could call it.

    Anywho, its proboaly all about muscels. I have none off that inn my arms atleast, could proboaly do with some regulary weight training myself. Do use my own weights sometimes, and few exercise rutines, but meh...


    Edit; Good read above me. Defiantly agree with the swimming and biking part. Thoes 2 sports on the outside maybe dosen't seem like such "healthy" sports for your body, but they are. Its proven again and again that running can be bad for your joints, while cycling and swimming really aint much bad.

    Swimming is obviously the best, cause you are weightless and whatnot inn the water. Why heavly obbesee people can only do exercise inn water aswell really. So yea, if you wanna protect your body while working all your muscle groups swimming wins.

    If you end up eating more shit and forget about weight training, you're just going to be a poster boy for Type 1 Diabetes. A skinny, fat kid who weighs more, just with a fat stomach and still skinny legs, shoulders, etc. You'll look pregnant! If you do want that skinny fat kid look with Type 1 Diabetes, eat all the sugar, high carb, man made processed foods all day and you can live a shitty life in as little as 90 days.

    Tnx for even more advice since my last post.
    I agree swimming is good training, only 1 little problem...i float like a rock! and yeah this is comming from a guy who went for extra swimming training from grade 1 to grade 9!
    Cannot get floating no matter how hard i try, give me a 5kg floating boost and i am like a fucking dolphin, but without it i sink at once.
    My teacher said it may have to do with my low weight, not enough muscle or fat to lift my bones / frame.
    I'm a stranger, I'm a changer.
    And I'm danger... maybe...

    In any case stomach likes to extend the more you consume at once, and one day from now you will feel hungrier and hungier. Assuming that you are accustomed to consuming small sum in a day the craving fealing stays away extraordinarily if not doing alot of physical practice. I'd check those splitting joints at specialist before getting super overwhelming on getting mass.
