Safe Weight Gain?: Steroids should not be your choice to gain weight. In fact your current Ht to Wt is actually healthy. Any addition weight can be gained through weight lifting combined with increased and correct protein/fat/carb intake. Consider a gym trainer to help guide you in a plan for both.
