Each individual is different, and has different genetic make-up. Hence, it depends on your genetic make-up, if your parents are skinny, then you you would also be skinny. Get yourself thoroughly evaluated by a physician to rule out any worm infestation/ thyroid problems. Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables and maintain good dietary habits.
