    Eating lots of sweets and sugar might help you put on weight, but not the right sort of weight.

    Do you know why you're under weight? Have you consulted a doctor? I see you're a referee so you no doubt run around a lot.

    Focus on calorie dense foods that are full of nutrients, instead of empty calories.

    Eat protein rich foods and do weight oriented exercises like lifting weights, etc....

    if you are using the food diary on here make it public so we can see what you eat. Use the Tools link above to calculate your energy requirement (BMR).

    Do you know how many calories you eat now ? Can you list a typical day's food ?

    You could start with two rashers of bacon and a fried egg for breakfast. A 1/4 pound burger for lunch with some vegetables like green beans or broccoli.
