At my gym there is this machine that tells you your weight, fat %, BMR etc. You should use one of these to get a rough estimate of your BMR. Your BMR is your basic metabolic rate, it will be about 2000-2500 calories. Mine is just below 2000. Basically, eat below this you will lose weight, eat above this and you will gain weight, assuming no major exercise is done on that day.

Basically, the reason why you're not gaining weight is because you're not eating enough. You're probably an Ectomorph - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ectomorphic like me. If you have an iPod/iPhone, Android or Blackberry handset, i suggest you get this http://www.myfitnesspal.com/mobile/ It's a wonderful app for counting the calories, so easy to use too! Then you can really find out if you're eating too much, you can also adjust it for exercise, as being active causes you to lose calories but the app can calculate approx how many calories were lost to give you an accurate description to how many calories you have consumed in that day,

Just keep eating like a boss but a bulk is also harder if you're not at gym. If you just eat lots and lots without lifting then it is likely that all you will gain is fat.
I just checked and i'm definitely an ectomorph...that doesn't shock me haha, I think i've known for a long time. i'll download the app that you said and i'll track the amount of calories that i'm intaking per day

to be honest at this point, I don't even mind just gaining fat :/

I second using myfitnesspal. Its good for counting calories although the goals they set arent for bodybuilding. When you find your bmr which is usually your weight in pounds x 12 (i think) you can go from there. Lean bulk is easy. Just add around 500 cals to your bmr n tap it in on myfitnesspal. Manually adjust your goal...n the optimum for a lean bulk is 30% protein 40% carbs 30% fat. Then just track it daily...easy as that
6. Re: Guys who are 5ft10-6ft1 tall, how much do you weigh?
6ft and around 73kg
7. Re: Guys who are 5ft10-6ft1 tall, how much do you weigh?
Apparently BMI is not a useful measure of health because it doesn't take into account aspects such as muscle. Your waist size would be a more accurate measure.
8. Re: Guys who are 5ft10-6ft1 tall, how much do you weigh?
88kg and chubby
I plan to lose either 8kg or 18kg, though I'll just stop when I look alright....

I may be wrong but to my knowledge bmi is very specific yet very general at the same time.
It gives a general indication of your health but the kind of people who can use it is very specific (other people will get the wrong values) e.g. Can't use it if you're a kid, or if youre a bodybuilder and something else I can't remember

6ft and around 73kg
How would you describe your body? Thin, very thin, muscley? Normal, bony? Etc

I ask because I want to lose some weight and 70kg was my initial target...
10. Re: Guys who are 5ft10-6ft1 tall, how much do you weigh?
I'm 5'11-6'0 in height, 18 years old and weigh 77 kg at the moment due to having lost like 5 over the last four weeks. I've sprained my ankle and barely had any appetite at all. For people who want to lose weight, injure yourself
11. Re: Guys who are 5ft10-6ft1 tall, how much do you weigh?
I am 5ft 11 in height and my weight is 68 kg and my body structure is Medium neither very over weight nor under weight . .
12. Re: Guys who are 5ft10-6ft1 tall, how much do you weigh?
6 ft and about 74kg.

And I'd like to point out I consider myself to be very scrawny atm (due to major lack of gym).

You'll be very skinny. But not unhealthily so.
14. Re: Guys who are 5ft10-6ft1 tall, how much do you weigh?
6 foot and about 9 stone 4

I've got a decent amount of muscle but I would say I look normal

But I go to the gym quite a lot, and have a really low body fat % so I'd say I'm lean.
