No, don't eat junk food, then you will screw up your metabolism and you will become obese.
Metabolism is essentially the speed at which our body's motor is
running. The speed at which our body burns calories is called the metabolic
rate. It's how fast your "motor" is running when you're still in a
reclined position or sleeping. About 60-75% of energy is expended by the
body at rest in such activities.
The metabolism is based on the number of calories we burn throughout
the day. Our body constantly burns calories to keep us going whether we
are eating, sleeping, cleaning etc. People with a lower percentage of
body fat (i.e. muscular) have a higher metabolism than others that are
less muscular because muscle uses more calories to maintain itself than
fat. Some people have a slower metabolic rate and have a harder time
staying slim. Younger persons have higher (faster) metabolism because of
the increased activity of cells. A slow metabolism actually causes to
store fat. The slower the metabolic rate, the greater the weight gains.
How to build muscles to improve metabolism? What type of exercise is
ideal that speed up metabolism so that you burn calories even at rest or
sleep? There are simple exercises that speed up the metabolism.
Causes for Low Metabolism
* A low calorie diet
* Snacking throughout the day on high sugared foods (candy, colas,
* Eating or drinking too much sugar containing foods.
* Lack of physical activity.
* Underactive thyroid.
There are some natural metabolism boosters (natural foods) that
improves your metabolism. Do not take over the counter pills containing animal
thyroid extract that claim to boost up metabolism. These products may
have side effects as diarrhea, increased heart rate, excessive
sweating, nervousness, tremors, bulging eyes, etc.
How to Improve (Speed up) Metabolism
* Do not skip any meals
* Exercise daily
* Build your muscles
* Avoid alcohol, sugar, and fastings
*Drink 8-10 glasses of water daily.
*Eat foods with high nutrition values

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.
Unless you have an eating disorder never say you want to put on weight you will regret it later on. Your metabolism WILL slow down and then you won't be able to control your weight. In this case I would suggest you do some weight lifting. Be VERY carefull because as a 15 year old guy your body is still growing and maturing and you can hurt yourself. You probably just want to build up some muscle mass and you can do that by lifting some weights. See a trainer and they can teach you how to do it wiht out hurting yourself.

First off you need to eat the right foods and maybe consider taking a weight gainer between meals. you may also want to try resistance training due to the growth hormone production that will occur up to 24 hours after an intense full body workout. At 14 the body acts funny, it may just take a couple more years for you do develop don't worry about it so much your friends might be a little jealous that you are so thin without needing a lot of exercise and dieting.

You are a teenager. Many teens are very thin, but they put on weight automatically as they grow older. This is because teenagers have a very high metabolic rate and burn calories fast. So,you should not try to put on weight by eating fatty food, since it will be difficult to lose this fat later.I found this information at http://www.toloseweight.org/gainweight.html

Talk with your mother about how she was at your age. You just maybe a late bloomer. Wait a couple of more years(you put up it this long).Or go see your doctor!
And consider finding some new friends who can support you

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 :)
