If you can't gain weight, you aren't consuming enough calories. Bottom line.

My goal is to gain 35 pounds in muscle. I have not gained anything yet and I am about 50 pounds underweight but I am trying to eat more steak/red meat, oatmeal, protein bars and protein shakes. I think that might work or atleast help me maintain my weight.

Have you ever heard of hard-gainer? IT's harder to gain weight then it is to lose it.

Yes I am one of those guys who has a much harder time gaining weight than losing it.

In high school, I wa 6'0" and hovered around 160lbs most of the time. When I graduated, I moved out to California and started excercising a little bit more, I shed 20lbs in a few months and now I am stuck at 140lbs. No matter what I eat, what I do, i cant gain any of that weight back. Right now my diet consists of over 4000 calories a day, a big load of protein, and some heavy lifting twice a week, and I am very slowly starting to see gains but it is a slow, difficult, expensive process.

There are three different body types though -
Ectomorph, Endomorph, and Mesomorph.

Endomorphs have low fat levels, but they have bigger bones and wider shoulders. They're more built. A good basketball example is... LeBron James.

Mesomorphs have large bone structure, they also have wide waists and gain weight easier. They have more fat storage. A good basketball example is... Brian Scalabrine.

Ectomorphs (which I would assume you are) have longer, skinnier arms and legs. They have a tougher time putting on weight. Good basketball examples include... Jamal Crawford, Kevin Durant, Tyson Chandler, and Shaun Livingston.

Basically if you want to put on muscle, I would suggest lifting weights (more weight, less reps), intaking protein (shakes, power bars, milk, whatever) shortly after your workout. Do this a few times a week. Just eat more protein.

If you want to put on fat, just eat more of everything and anything.

And for both, DO NOT DO cardio work (running, jogging, etc.). This will definitely not help the weight-gain process.

You don't know what you are talking about. If a small guy like myself ate 6000 calories or more I'd get sick. If you eat until you get sick then you aren't helping anything because you'll likely throw up anyway.

That would be me. Very long arms(can almost touch a 8' ceiling flat-footed) and very long legs. My metabolism is very fast.

No you wouldn't.

America has so many obese people because people are too lazy to cook their own food and buy fast food a handful of times per week. Add that to the fact that so many people don't have physical jobs.

With the exception of someone with a thyroid condition or someone who is morbidly obese...not losing weight is just because someone is lazy and doesn't want to give up certain foods.
