Thanks for query.
as you are athlete and your weight is 55kg,it is less,still you require about 10 kg more.
If you do stranious exercise then you require more calories.
To increase weight you require positive calories balance to increase wt.
So for the time being do less stanious exercise.
have more protein and moderate fat and carbohydrate diet.
More milk,pulses,cereals,eggs,
Take some multi vitamin supplements.
keep thyroid under control.
ok and bye.
