Go see your doctor: There are many reasons for being underweight (you didn't state how much/little you weigh). Typically we calculate body mass index (http://www. Cdc. Gov/healthyweight/assessing/bmi/adult_bmi/english_bmi_calculator/bmi_calculator. Html) such that less than 18.5 is considered underweight (or less than 59.2kg).

Perhaps he will change his mind, or is why about starting. One great gift you could give him is family fitness -- everybody runs or does something else athletic together. My best fitness buddy as a teen was Dad. Best wishes. ...Read more
