If he ate 5,000 calories a day, he'd weigh more.

Not at all. I once tried a 7,000 calorie a day diet in order to gain weight. I just ended up feeling worse.

I said 5,000 a day would be fun. not 7,000.

Why would you automatically jump to 7,000 calories a day? In order to gain weight you just need to consistently eat a bit over maintenance for a long period of time.

May I suggest more starches and less fats and proteins? I'm serious, if he's serious about putting weight on.

From what it sounds like, he was eating a lot of junk (which is good in his case, more calories/less volume to max cal intake). Either he is just doing that every once in a while or people are exaggerating what he ate. "He must of ate 30 bags of doritos on the plane!.." etc..

I am not an expert and so I read several articles/books that mentioned 6000-7000 calories being the "magic" number. Based on my personal experience, I have just given in to genetics.

There's no magic number, it varies by person. Gender/age/height/weight/activity factor/genetics all contribute to a good estimation.

I don't really see his low weight being all that weird for young tall skinny kids. There are lots of them. I'm one and I know a good number more. Most of the super skinny kids don't throw 95 with knee buckling sliders though, and that's what makes him weird.
