I've experienced a similar problem, although I'm maintaining the weight not really gaining. Lately I've been trying to eat more in the mornings, less in the evenings so I'm not packing away calories during sleep (into fat). I've reduce potatoes and grains (including bread and cereal) to the minimum. That's really changed my intake a lot as I've had to increase fruits and vegetables to accommodate this shift and have to be sure to get enough protein foods.
If you are actually trying to lose weight you most likely cannot with 4000 calorie intake, but if your weight is stable or at a place where you're satisfied, 4000 calories could be reasonable (on certain days, maybe not all) due to high caloric expenditure.
Really you should, no matter what, quit eating french fries as they are completely unnecessary / junk food that are packed with empty calories. Also they taste TOO GOOD so you end up supersizing or buying 2 helpings. If your standard is to never eat them, and you only cheat once in a great while, that also is success. Good luck.
