In brief: See a diff. doctor!

Often people who are trying to gain weight have as much or more of a challenge than those trying to lose weight.
If you are eating plenty of food & not gaining you may have a medical condition such as hyperthyroidism, malabsorption, gluten intolerance or other food allergies, intestinal parasites etc. Ask your doctor to test for these or to refer you to a specialist for further evaluation.
