eating 2000cals a day will not let you gain anything. your fat is too low, your carbs are too low, and your protein is ok but maybe too high. do not be afraid of fats, they are needed in your diet, just consume helathy poly and monounsaturated fats. eat complex carbs and you will be fine too. you are going to gain a little bit of fat while trying to put weight on, its inevitable, just stay active, eat, and rest and let your body do the rest.
