You dont wanna gain fat and water wight so I wouldn't recommended the big Macs. Just take protien often in your case 2 grams per pound body weight you should gain wieght steady and wont end up looking like a marshmallow.

Every thing you see you have to eat it and eat 10 big macs a day at least and if that dont work just go to cicis pizza and eat their for 3 hours straight , let me know if this works

I'd say calculate your TDEE and take in about 500Cal more. Gaining weight is about putting more in than you put out, essentially. You still want to eat about 75% clean and hit your Macro and micronutrients. Use iifym.com to help
