What does your current nutrition plan look like now? Do you know about how many calories you are taking in?

Don't really know how much calorie intake I'm taking in, but if I were to estimate its roughly around 3,000 to 4,000 but with my metabolism it's hard to gain any weight.
Morning: 3 eggs peanut butter sandwich
Noon: snack: ranging from protein shake to fruits
Noon: lunch: chicken breast fried boneless and rice
Mid-Day: snack: protein bar or shake with baked potato, rice and peanut butter sandwich
Dinner: steak or chicken with rice and veggies.
That's just for right now, cause I'm willing to change my meal plan completely so I can get on track to fixing this metabolism crisis and be on my way to gaining and getting what I need in my system to start a diet and working out session.

As was said above start counting calories, aim for a macro split of 1 Fat-2 Protein-3 Carbs. Also ways to to add quick calories is have a glass of milk with every meal. You can also make your own mass gaining shakes, 1 cup of oats, 2 Tablespoons of olive oil,1-2 servings of peanut butter, protein powder and milk, easy 1100-1300 calories

i just like to say, your well on your way to building a good body cause most of the effort in bodybuilding is diet. the fun part of bodybuilding is in the gym pumping weights, however there is also some technique that you should follow in the gym that arnt hard to understand. all you need to know is 12 reps x 3 sets for each exercise.
back to diet, easiest way is to pay a personal trainer to work out your resting metabolic kj intake, and the daily usage kj intake to get a proper value for how much you actually need to eat. if money a problem, then basically you need to eat roughly to my knowedlge 11000 kj a day. depending on what you do throughout the day but this is an average kj intake for your size.
just remember you dont wanna gain weight and it will all be fat thats ****ed up. you want it to be muscle, your actually in a good state right now to build muscle cause you dont have to lose fat like most other ppl.
oats, green leafy veggies, rice, pasta, chicken breast, turkey, almonds!(good for u), bananas, apples, whey protein with water dw about milk makes you gain fat raises estrogen levels, peanut butter sandwiches, fish.
so a daily meal would be
80g oats with egg whites and tiny bit of milk
banana and almonds
chicken breast, veggies and rice (try making a rissoto maybe)
peanut butter sandwich and can tuna on some bread
(after workout) protein shake with water.... mass gainer protein supplement
remember cause there are so many meals in one day, they arnt very large besides the main meals such as breakfast, lunch and dinner.
dont get fat, build muscle by eating right and healthy and hitting the gym with good rest (8hrs) sleep
the other examples that the other guys said sound ok too, but id say use mine
note: 11000kj = 2600 calories... if your eating 3000 calories you doing ok, it comes down to how much you do thorughout the day aswell so if your contantly doing stuff you can eat up to 3000 calories.
