Feeling hungry all the time and can't gain any weight. Do I have disease? Others say it's a good thing?

In brief: Hunger

If you are within normal limits of your body weight for your height and build, you are probably normal.
Some people just have a higher metabolism. If you are losing weight or have symptoms like hair loss, see your doctor to rule out disease. Otherwise enjoy the chance to eat all you want! consider eating more frequent smaller meals to help with hunger feelings.
