Quantity is not the only key to weight gain one should have quality food in the term diet should be having carbohydrates, protein, healthy fats and vitamins and minerals in the ratio a person's body needs. What I feel from your diet is it is mainly having dense carbohydrate food, but protein seems to be lacking. Best way to increase the protein would be to get a diet plan for your body type which will exactly have the protein requirement and type of food you should include so as to gain lean muscle mass.
Hi lybrate-user, glad that you asked this question. Some times the metabolism in the system is very fast. Eat frequently. Also take up weight training to build on your muscles. Include a lot of protein rich foods in your diet like fish, grilled chicken, eggs, sprouts, nuts and oilseeds, pander post the workout. For mental smartness you need to keep away from stress. Do things that you like, eg: listening to music, yoga. You are still 15 years, in a year or two with hormonal changes things should fall in place. All the best.
Tips for weight gain 1) eat foods rich in protein like milk and milk product, eggs, chicken, meat. 2) eat energy dense foods like nuts, dates, potato, halwa, kheer etc. 3) eat fruits high in energy like banana, chickoo, sitaphal, mango, grapes. 4) eat two servings of pulses in a day esp. Soybean and urad dal. 5) have proper rest.
