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, .... ...Read more

Normal range: Since we have no way of assessing your fitness, I'll let you decide that factor. Anyone can get into better shape with effort..At a Body Mass index of 22.2, you are well within the normal range of weight for height. The target BMI for age is 20.5 or 51kg.Your expected genetic final height would be the average of both parents less 2.5 inches. ...Read more

Are you exercising?: A good healthy way to put on weight is to build up muscle mass. Assuming you have no heart problems or other reasons for which your doctor has advised against exercise, you may want to consider a program of weight training (plus aerobic exercise) 4-5 times a week for 45-60 minutes per session. You may want to consider joining a gym that offers classes at least as a starting point. ...Read more

Considered normal: This Ht/wt match places you in the normal weight for height range by both BMI and CDC growth chart criteria. As you are likely aware, you are shorter than most of your age equivalent peers, but that comes with the need to weigh the appropriate but smaller amount than most of them. You could weigh more and stay in the normal range but any less and you would be considered underweight. ...Read more

Will i lose my extra body fat when i start my period my mother tells me, that when i start my period i will lose my extra body fat, I am at my average weight for my age and height, but i still have fat. Will i lose it naturally or is there anyway i can ge

Hello. : Hello. I would not expect that your bodyfat would drop because you start having periods. Maybe what your mother was referring to, was that your body curves can change with puberty. For instance, the waist can be smaller in comparison to the size of the chest or the buttocks. I am glad to hear that you have a healthy weight for your height and age. The most important thing is to be healthy. We all have fat. It is necessary to have fat in our bodies. One thing that i find sad, is that so many girls don't love their bodies. Many girls want to look like skinny models. Some girls go on drastic diets or eat too few calories to try to become really skinny. Did you know that it isn't always healthy to be really skinny? I recommend that you eat 5 servings a day of vegetables and 4 servings of fruit per day. Learn about eating healthy fats. I don't recommend that you try to eat really low calories at your age. Your body needs nourishment to grow. Try not to eat lots of junk food. Aerobic exercise is very important for good health; whether it is walking, or jogging or swimming etc. You take care. If you focus on being healthy and loving yourself - everything else fits into place. ...Read more
