To be incredibly honest and blunt you aren't eating enough calories to grow, I don't care how much it feels like you are eating, it isn't enough.

Now that that is over the rest of this article will address what to do to get more calories in to grow.

Mass Gainers are very effective supplements to help people gain muscle and can be taken at very pivotal times of the day. Mass gainers are great to get nutrients into your body right after an intense workout (within 45 minutes of end of workout) or to bump up your caloric intake in an easy to chug and easy to digest form. Most mass gainers average around 600-700 calories, some more some less. 600 calories from drink is a lot easier to get into your stomach than 6 servings of chicken/bread.
Dense Foods
Eat dense foods to bump up the calories in your daily intake without increasing the amount of chewing you have to do. Some great calorically dense foods are peanuts, peanut butter, homemade burgers, cheese, milk.
Milk

Milk is fantastic and at 120 calories per 1 cup of 2% Fat Milk you'll be able to chug down some heavy calories very quickly.It contains 8gs of protein, 5 gram of fat, and 12 grams of carbs per serving! This means your getting plenty of protein, plent of carbs and a perfect amount of fat. Granted that the carbs mostly come from sugar 11g of the 12g carb serving, but this is not bad because if you are having appetite trouble having a more sugary diet may help stimulate your appetite.

 
Heavy Compound Intense Exercise
Do really really really intense heavy workouts with lots of compound exercises! Exerting this much energy in such an intense set of exercises will use up a lot of calories and cause your appetite to be massively stimulated. Your body will get used to the bigger amounts of food caused from all the exercise and you'll be able to eat more!
