Ok, i figured the sooner i start this the better, todays intake will be less than an average day because i only got out of hospital an hour ago from getting my kidney stone sorted

Anyone who reads this please feel free to comment, and if im doing something wrong, please be honest!

My height is about 6 ft

And my weight right now is 8 1/2 stone = 119 pounds

I am 18 years old and have been vegan for about 6 months

But anyway. i will stop yammering on and start getting on with it!

2 litres of water

1 bowl of chicken flavoured noodles

2 slices of toast ( pure and vegemite on white bread )

cheese and mayonaise sandwhich

Small bowl of salad (All sliced : tomatoes, mushrooms, red onion, cucumber, lettuce, dairy-free cheese, 2 large spoons of egg-free mayonaise, 1 small spoon of mustard and croutons! :) )

1 bowl of beef flavoured noodles

1 plate of mashed potato, vegetables and rice

Yeah dude, keep the log going. Like Katabatic said, try to keep count of the calories for a few days, since that's quite important for putting on weight. If you don't know how many you've consumed, you won't know if you're hitting your target or not. You won't have to keep on doing it, just do it for a few days so you get an idea of how much you're eating

There's a lot of stuff there that Michael Pollan would call "edible food-like substances" and not a lot of what I (or him) would call food. You need whole foods. A few rules:
1. Eat greens every day. That's a given for anyone, nomatter what the weight.
2. Since you want to gain weight you need to seriously step it up. Eat whole grains, beans, (preferably raw) nuts and seeds, coconut milk.
3. Get Cronometer and put in everything you eat in a day.
4. Aim high, since you want to gain weight. Go for at least 5000kcal/day. It's easy, I could do it every day, without problem. If you gain too fast, cut it down until it's on par with what you want.

Eeeeeeat it. Have you kept track of calories for a couple of days? Once you do it you'll know how much you're eating. Right now, it looks to me like you're not eating enough, but I don't know by how much, just need a rough guide for a day or two, then you'll know you have to eat X more caloriesz

That is also important, if you can keep track of those roughly then you can see the grams of protein, carbohydrates and fat you are getting. But yeah, the total number of calories should be high when you're trying to gain weight.
