1. keeping in accordance with your height to weight ratio it seems that you are slightly having few kilos less than what is desired.
2. you are UPSET itself is one cause of not gaining weight, because in these cases metabolism of a person is affected and increased leading to faster removal of food and reduced absorption.
3. or it can be due to inheritance,faulty food habits,increased physical activity with decreased energy(food) input, or if suffering from any problem related with digestion?
4. sometimes low hemoglobin or worm in stomach is also the cause of not gaining weight,check your Hb% level and stool test.
5. Mango shake is an ideal drink for you as one is free from protein (mango) and one is free from sugar (milk).
6. Don't let yourself stressed out, take diet rich in calcium (milk,curd), Vitamin D (milk,exposure to sun), magnesium (green leafy vegetables).
7. do compound exercises,increase protein and complex carbohydrates in your diet, sleep a lot (which will conserve energy needed for awakening).
8. make sure you are gaining weight on muscles and not FAT,so apart from eating also follow a good weight lifting programme.

A healthy weight is one that is right for your body type and height and is based on your Body Mass Index and the size of your waist.
If your body mass index is less than 18.5, you are in the under weight catagory.
If your BMI is between 19 and 24.9, you are in the recommended weight range for your height.
If your BMI is 25 to 29.9, you are in the over weight catagory.
According to your height and weight, your BMI is 18.9 , so that you are maintaining normal weight.
If you feel unhealthy, consult with a Neutrician or your Family Physician.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Since you are having weight loss it could be because of improper less nutritious diet or systemic disease. You should eat food rich in proteins like pulses, eggs, chicken, lean meat. Eat plenty of fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables. Drink plenty of water. Join a Gym for building muscle definition and better physique. If you have weakness, chronic cough, pale skin, it could reflect systemic disease like TB for which you will need medical intervention.
