performance: gaining 0.4 lb a week

I'm in my mid 40s and an ex college athlete (football). I was always trying to gain weight in my youth and weighed as much as a relatively lean 275 lbs on a 6'6" frame. Never had to watch what my weight until I hit my late 30s and then the pounds started to come on little by little...I went from 220 in my mid 20s up to 250 by my late 30s and used this program to drop almost 25 pounds in a few months just by monitoring my caloric intake. I'm around 235 now and noticing that I'm not seeing the quick changes from just caloric intake. Beyond this program, I lift weights and do some fitness stuff on a consistent basis.

Why the BMI (Body Mass Index) Chart is USELESS
Pencil me into the category of the OP. I'm just north of 6'6". I haven't weighed less than 225 since high school but have always been considered skinny (I was playing offensive line in football). I've been as much as 275 and now I'm back down to 235 after being 250 on 4/27 of this year. BMI says I'm still a fat a$$ but I'm feeling ribs and maybe getting a little too gaunt. It can certainly be hard to find a measurement or ideal weight target that works visually and physically for someone of my height.
