General & Family Physician Dr. Jitender Chauhan's  Response
Hello, welcome to HCM. You must understand the fact that for a person to be in good health his/her BMI should be between 18 to 25. To calculate your BMI just divide your body weight(in kg) by square of your height ( in meters). In case you have lower than healthy limits you can increase you weight by having small frequent meals. You must have a balanced diet rich in proteins and minerals and vitamins. In growing age like yours body metabolism is high so you must not take junk foods and look to eat nutritious fresh vegetables and fruits. Regular exercise also helps in improving your apetite. Wish you good health.
