This may seem like a stupid answer but trust me, I was in the exact same position as you. You have to EAT! Stop conditioning and just eat. You can still do sprints and heavy weight lifting but don't rep and don't do any endurance training until you gain the weight. You literally have to force yourself to eat, even when you feel full. Of course you should eat somewhat healthy. The downside is the expenses. I cleared out my entire house within 2 weeks. My parents were pissed. FYI, even 5lbs of weight will make you feel more sluggish so keep that in mind if you want to do well in football. It takes a while to get used to added weight. I guess it depends on your position. If you're interested, this is my story:
I was the same height and around the same weight as you but I probably had a higher metabolism because I ate ridiculous amounts of food (around 3000-4000 calories) but still sat around 135-145. That's when I decided that I had enough. I began consuming 6000-8000 calories of fish, chicken, bread, rice, cheese, cereal, milk, eggs, peanut butter, and protein shakes. Some days I would even reach 10000 calories. I would eat most of the food right before bed. This is because your metabolism slows when your asleep but it could be bad for you since you're not supposed to lay down while acid is in your stomach but I didn't care. I'm sure the large amounts of food in my stomach would soak up all the acid. I did sprints and heavy lifting 5 days a week in order to keep my appetite and to gain muscle mass. You need to rest though. Get a lot of sleep. 2 a days is too much. It will burn too many calories. In order to eat as many calories as I did, you have to constantly eat. I ate about 4-6 full meals a day with about 2-4 hours between each or 3-4 HUGE meals. It took me about 2 hours to finish the huge meals so there went my entire day. When I checked my weight, I gained around 5 pounds just from food inside me. I was so backed up with food that I had to go to the bathroom after every single meal. I felt surprising healthy though. I reached 155 in just a week and went up to 165 in 2 weeks. Then I ran out of food :( but I only went down to 155-160. That's because the body prefers to maintain it's weight. When I went to college, I only ate 1-2 small meals a day and walked about 30min-1hr every weekday to get to class and I didn't lose the weight for a while but when I started losing about a year in, I lost a lot and quick. Now I'm stuck in your position again but at 21. I find that I don't have nearly as much time or food to eat as I did back then so now I fluctuate 140-150 at 6'. I plan on bulking up again but it takes a ton of commitment because if you even stop for one day, it will take a lot more to recoup and it's a complete waste of time and money if you give up in the middle.
I hope my story inspires you and good luck!

I've gone through the same thing. First, you need to eat a high calorie diet and then exercise. By high calorie I mean like 2,800+ calories.
1. You can start by eating a big breakfast. This will usually get you about 900 calories and almost halfway there.
2. Go to the gym an hour or two after that. Weight lift and get in shape. Muscles weighs more.
3. Snack, drink a protein shake, and then eat lunch. Get yourself up to 1,900 calories for the day by now.
4. Snack a little more - nuts and legumes are good. At this point in the day you can try weight gain shakes.
5. Eat a small dinner, that's right. You don't need a big dinner at this point. You will easily pass 3,000 calories at this point.
And THAT is how you gain weight if you have a high metabolism, and nobody will even think youre fat.

I have the identical trouble... I took this shake referred to as MAX 4000. Basically a powder you combine w/ milk and it offers you 4000 energy plus you ought to consume no less than three foods an afternoon. It did paintings I would possibly not lie, I received like 7 kilos in two weeks. Which for me is plenty. But I stopped taking it for the reason that I simply didnt like taking a complement, nor did I desire my frame to emerge as stylish on it. SO I began workout and constructing muscle as an alternative of fats. So I am healthful, have muscle tone,and seem to have received weight even though particularly I have not that a lot. I simply have muscular tissues... Oh... I am a lady... I am five'nine and I am presently at one hundred forty five. I was once one hundred thirty five... This is over the beyond 6 months.
My friend was extremely thin because of her metabolism is was so heigh that it would digest the food but the extra food that she did not really need to eat because she was full but finished any way did not get turned into fat it turned it into energy that it used to grow. she is older now but when she was 7 she was little taller than 5 foot and 27 pounds. So when she was 10 her doctor saw that where way to big but should fit for her height. that is when they found the problem. she was on the swim team and played basketball so she could not play any sports could not go to school and had to stay at home and sit on the couch and eat plus once every other week she had to go to the doctor and get a shot that lowered he metabolism a lot. at age 13 she was 30 pounds (and close to death) but in a time of 4 weeks she gained gained 36 pounds she was back to a healthy weight. the foods she ate were high in fat like Brownies she had about 8 good sized brownies a day(mom loves to bake) and she would eat bacon. But what her doctor said helped the most is that she ate tons of cheese. and her mom gained 6 pound in a week because of eating all that cheese with my friend.
so try every thing i listed andif you can be lazy.
Hope helped bey!!!!!! :)- -(:
I have the equal situation... I took this shake referred to as MAX 4000. Basically a powder you combine w/ milk and it offers you 4000 energy plus you need to consume a minimum of three foods an afternoon. It did paintings I may not lie, I received like 7 kilos in two weeks. Which for me is plenty. But I stopped taking it on account that I simply didnt like taking a complement, nor did I wish my frame to grow to be stylish on it. SO I began workout and constructing muscle as an alternative of fats. So I am healthful, have muscle tone,and look to have received weight despite the fact that quite I have not that a lot. I simply have muscle mass... Oh... I am a lady... I am five'nine and I am presently at one hundred forty five. I used to be one hundred thirty five... This is over the beyond 6 months.

First, add high calorie food items in your diet. To gain weight, you need to have more calories than burnt by the metabolic activities of your body. The amount of calories which should be taken daily differs from person to person. However, if you want to gain weight, intake of more calories will be beneficial. Second, add protein rich foods like fish, soybean, egg white, beans etc. in your diet.
Protein is a body building nutrient. It is very important to develop muscle mass. Third, consume more carbohydrates in your diet. It is very important for providing energy to the body. The carbohydrates which will not be used by your body will accumulate in your body as fat and it will also help you to gain weight. Fourth, add right kind of fats in your diet. Fat is very important to gain weight. Avoid those food items which have Trans and Saturated fats. Prepare your meals with canola oil, olive oil etc. which offers monounsaturated fats to your body.
Last but not the least, instead of having 2 or 3 meals in a day; take 5 to 6 small meals in a day. This will appease your hunger and will provide the source of energy to your body at different intervals in a day. Follow all the suggestions mentioned above, and get ready to gain weight.
Hope this helps :)
