2}increased metabolic rate
3)lack of proper nutrition

if his weight loss is associated with following symptoms then he needs a checkup
fatigue and early tiredness
irritablity
weakness
anemia
getting frequent infections
increased sweating
increased frequency of defecation
rapid weight loss

considering it to be a normal genetic built ..here are the following measures to restore weight
1) a balanced diet including proteins ans carbs..like eggs,,fish..pulses..milk..

He should take a high protein diet along with strength training exercises. Some of the foods are Dal, peanuts, almonds, cashewnuts, soya, egg white and meat products. These should be taken in higher amounts in the diet. A regular aerobic exercise along with strength training is effective.
