Problem gaining weight

Patient: I’m having a problem gaining weight. I am fairly active. I am 5’11’ 177 lbs, 5% body fat. Are there any vitamins or minerals that can possibly slow down my metabolism or cause me to hold on to some fat. I have increased my caloric intake to 4000 to 6000 calories a day.
