Gain weight: I'm a 24 year old male that has always had a slim build, I'm currently 4 stone underweight according to my bmi, how can I gain weight? ANS: Something is wrong. BMI includes you ht and wt so not possible to be 4 stone underweight for BMI. Are you entering lbs or kg stones into the BMI calculator. Recommend 2nd opinion with me to get more information so can help more.
