Hi Dear,

You under Normal BMI category if still your looks make you fat then I would like to know your waist circumference.

You are in a growing age so eat healthy and play well out door games. Eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole pulses, grains. Restrict your junk food and processed food intake.

Hope this helps.
