    Hard to gain weight

    Hi, first time posting on here
    I'm a 17-year-old guy whos trynna put on some weight.
    When I started going to the gym I used to weigh in at around 50kg (110lb) fast forward a year and a half I now weigh 58kg (128lb)
    I know that in order to gain weight you need to be eating in a caloric surplus of ~500cal and to be having about 1-1.5g of protein per lb of lean body mass.
    The thing is, I know that I should be eating ~2700-2800 cal a day to be bulking up, however the biggest issue I face is that I just don't feel hungry enough to eat all that food.
    Let me give you all a rundown of how my daily diet goes:

    Breakfast: Smoothie containing 2 cups whole milk (30g of protein from the milk alone) 1 whole banana 2tbs peanut butter, 1 scoop wpc protein and ~1cup of oats

    Lunch: 2 chicken sandwiches (sorry for not being specific macro wise)

    Dinner: 180g beef mince + 1/2 cup white rice and 1 cup mixed beans

    Eating that much alone is a struggle for me and I just about get that all in.

    If y'all know of any ways to naturally increase my appetite so that I can intake more food and meet my caloric goals, maybe some more calorie dense foods? that would be awesome.

    BTW, in terms of my workout programs, I used to follow a push/pull/legs split for the last year and I have only recently switched things up to a chest/back, legs/shoulders, bicep/tricep program resting a day between.

    Thanks in advance

    Just gradually try to increase your food intake. And your appetite will increase over time.

    Eat more foods you enjoy eating as it makes it a lot easier to get in calories.

    2700 calories is nothing to eat. I cut at 2400.
    When I bulk I just drink a lot of milk, a lot of peanut butter, a lot of nuts.
    Reaching 2700 should be veryeasy
