No body fat

Patient

Q: I am having a lot of trouble gaining body fat. I recently broke up with my girlfriend because I felt that all our relationship was was sex. We had sex all the time. To the point where my body got so tired of it. Ever since then, I feel as if my body is just waiting for more sex because when I masturbate, ejaculation comes so quickly. Also, I cannot gain a single pound. My body feels as if it is nothing but skin and bones. You can tell a drastic difference in the way my body used to look and the way it looks now. I have lost stamina and endurance, or at least feel that I have. I am always cold when usually I am always the hot natured one. I have tried to eat a lot of food but nothing helps me gain my body fat. I work out and lift weights but it does not feel the same anymore because I have no body fat. Please help me with an explanation and tell me if my sex life had anything to do with me losing my body fat.
