Underweight: I understand your concern about being underweight.
Whey protein is by-product of cheese production. It may have allergic reaction.
Have Balanced Diet:
•Meat, fish, eggs,
•Milk, yogurt, cheese
•Starchy foods, such as bread, rice, potatoes and pasta
•Plenty of fruit and vegetables
•Accept yourself set small monthly goals to gain weight
•Do moderate weight lifting
