    1500grams of carbs, and 200grams of protein? So you eat 6800 calories a day not including the calories from the fats you eat? And you're 154 pounds?

    To gain 1 lb. a week u must consume 500 calories more than your daily allowance. I dont know your height or anything but to curren maintain you weight u need around 2600 so to gain a 1 lb. a week u would need 3100.

    Looks as if you are consuming around 2300 cals a day I would increase it to 3000 and you will see an increase in weight

    Also are you working out? Put more weight on the bar and do less reps. That will put some mass on ya, and help you gain.
    But becareful what you wish for...

    You need to go into the educational thread section, and look at "Toby's" posts about calculating your daily caloric intake. Once you've figured that out, you should start eating about 500 to 1000 calories over that number.
    If you just want to gain weight, try eating whole eggs for awhile. That will bulk you up alot. It won't be all muscle weight, but it'll be weight.
    Do you squat and deadlift?
