How tall are you,: How much to you weight, what is your age and gender? If you are otherwise healthy, do not worry about low bmi. In a few years you will gain weight without trying and then will look back at this period fondly.

High density foods: Eat high density foods- like peanut butter and nuts, avocado has alot of calories and is a good source of good fat.
