Re: Under Weight Question??? - November 3rd 2011, 03:03 PM

You should ask your doctor if you are underweight or not. BMI calculators can tell you, but most doctors do not believe in the BMI system anymore and base your weight status through different terms.

It's fine to want to gain weight, but to get stronger you don't necessarily have to gain weight. Lift some weights, exercise regularly, work on cardio for endurance. Otherwise to gain weight just be sure to eat some carbs too. They are one way to really help, but do it healthily. Protein usually makes you feel fuller faster, but it is definitely something you want in your diet.

Eating some meats with fat in them such as chicken with fat or steak with fat is good and healthy in portions.
