I can see that you are bothered with your weight problem and want a quick solution for it but you need to understand that the body weight is controlled by a lot of factors.
Firstly I would like to know your height, as there is an ideal body weight range according to the height of the individual. Body mass index (weight/ (ht) square) should ideally be between 18.5-24.9.
There are certain medical conditions which can also prevent weight gain like increased functioning of thyroid or diabetes. You should get your thyroid function tests and blood sugar levels done.
You can review with me after getting these tests. In the meantime, have a healthy and wholesome diet and don't bother too much about your weight. Avoid excessive use of dietary supplements, as they can sometimes be associated with side effecs (like stomach ulcers, muscle weakness).

Hope I was able to answer your question. If you have any other queries, please feel free to follow up with me.
