I'm 6'2 (188 cm) and 17 (male). I weigh 68kg. According to my GP, that's underweight.



I'm not overestimating how much I'm eating and my metabolism is normal (I had a blood test two weeks ago to confirm this).



Does anyone have any idea why I'm not gaining any weight?

you're either active and burning this or you are not eating 4.4k calories a day , if you've just started then give it a couple of weeks and you'll see the pounds come in

Have you recorded how active you are? You may be burning more calories than you think.

You should’ve definitely put on weight then, since you’re not I can only assume that you’re burning a lot if not mostly all the 4.4k in a day, how active are you?

Either that or you’re not eating 4.4k, can you post what you’re eating and the amounts?

I'm not really that active - I exercise about 20 minutes a day which really isn't that much

It is not only the amount of calories which important, more important is the source of the calories. 4k calories from junk food is not the same as 4k calories from greens

You don't know how to count calories. Apple and banana = 1000 cal???? A piece of toast 800???? Nope. Why would you want to be a fat **** anyway. Slim is beautiful.

Ah. Doesn't matter. Nothing wrong with being underweight, tell your GP to go to hell. Fat = disgusting.

So by calculating the calories using your values, you consumed 29800 calories today. You went wrong somewhere, cause that's not possible or normal to have. You probably put more zero's at the end accidentally.

I suggest you use 'MyFitnessPal' from google. Or any other calorie counting website. Then use that to see how much calories you have.
Even if you went wrong with what you said above, you should still gain weight if you have 4000 calories a day. So you must have less than that.

Do you also work out a lot? Or do any activities during the week? As that can burn off a lot of calories. And there is also something called BMR which varies for different people. Calculate your BMR too.

I already said this, but I did a running total rather than putting how much each meal is worth individually

What did you use to calculate the calories?

And as I asked before, 'Do you also work out a lot? Or do any activities during the week? As that can burn off a lot of calories. And there is also something called BMR which varies for different people. Calculate your BMR too. '

I've been underweight for years, and I'm perfectly healthy.
