Yes!: That is definitely not normal. Have you traveled to tropical climates recently where you might have picked up a parasitic worm infection? See an infectious disease maven and get that treated.

See Dr., then eat...: If one is truly underweight (based on height, family background, and body type), a Dr. can evaluate for a hormonal, digestive, or other disorder. If no medical cause is found, then one can add weight by eating more calories of nutritious foods, while also doing weight-training to increase muscle. Proteins: egg white, chicken breast, salmon, ... Better fats: olive oil, peanuts, almonds, tofu, ....

Not a number: Much depends on ur bone structure (light, heavy) and even more on how muscular you are. Even the much-discussed "body mass index" has flounded with the 2013 jama article with "overwieght" folks being healthier & living longer than "ideal weight" folks. Your best weight is what looks & feels right to you while you can compete successfully in aerobic sports. A man needs no grabbable bodyfat. Cheers.

You choose: The "ideal weight" charts are subscience / entertainment; olympic sprinters are "underweight" & super-fit linebackers "obese". A person's best weight is whatever looks and feels right to that person while he / she is able to keep up with peers at the fitness activities that he / she enjoys. I hope you've chosen a smart, fitness-focused lifestyle.
