He's right, you need more calories. Finegan's advice re: hormone status is spot on.

You're a hardgainer; train appropriately.

i have the same problem.

IMO you just have to eat and eat and eat, healthy. lol
those shakes are suppose to make you feel that way. after a while of eating and drinking the shakes (2 weeks) and if you stop you'll find your self very hungry. its like training your stomach; i think its 30% weight training and 70% eating the right foods and eating alll the time. just my .2$

If you have a good and strong stomach then eating the above is not a problem but if you have a weak stomach then there is no way one can eat the above with feeling sick or puking after. Those that are skinny usually have weak stomachs (like me).

I'd recommend reading this guy's info:

http://stronglifts.com/

and of course one of the gold standards:

http://startingstrength.com/

What's your lifting routine look like? Just start squatting and dead lifting your face off.

To gain weight, you need to consume more calories every day than you burn with physical activity. You can also gain weight by increasing the size of your muscles. The main goal is to increase your overall intake of calories every day; it doesn't really matter if you eat more meals or increase the size of the meals you eat right now. If you're not used to eating much at any one time, you may prefer to eat several small meals or snacks throughout the day. If you'd rather eat three meals each day, increase your portion sizes or add more foods to each meal.

Your meals should be balanced with the right amounts of protein, carbohydrates and fat. Choose a portion of a protein source such as meat, poultry, fish, seafood, legumes or tofu and serve with a side of green and colorful vegetables.

understand the importance of a balanced diet, increase those calories with carbs not sugary foods. 5x5 weight training (5 set 5 reps HEAVY weights) General rule, eat big, train big, get big.

I myself struggle to eat big, I choose to supplement with my shakes, adding fine blend scottish oats to your protien. Your shakes are a supplement and should not be a subsutitude. Add a couple of spoons of peanut butter too

Weight gainers definitely help. Just make sure the rest of your diet is clean and not full of junk like pizza and fried foods.

OP, its easier than you think. Get on a good, consistent weightlifting routine. At your size I think you should focus on getting some basic strength, so maybe Rippetoe's Starting Strengh would be good for you. Definitely focus on the compound lifts (bench, squat, deadlift, bent over row, etc).

Also, eat at a caloric surplus, and do not be afraid of carbs or getting fat. You're 6'1 150 lbs, you don't have to worry about getting fat. I would consume 300-400 grams of carbohydrates and 200-250 grams of protein per day if I were you. Good luck.

Eat more calories than you are eating now. The best way to gain weight is to eat more. It is also going to be hard to gain lean mass rather than just mass, but it can be done. Just up your calorie intake, and protein intake.In fact no real mysteries when it comes to gaining weight.

To gain weight

Heavy leg presses, which exercise the largest muscles in your body.

this combine with heavy lifting including deads, quats and bench. as you burn increased calories in the gym you will also up your intake to accomodate and strength will move up slowly.
