See a physician: Obviously, for most people increasing calories without exercising more usually produces weight gain. In such cases it may be a metabolic issue. In such cases starting with your family doc or an internal medicine doc to run some routine tests, then going from there and consulting a registered dietician if there are not underlying medical problems.
