Hello Reddy,
Your BMI for your current weight and height comes around 17 which is less for your height. BMI less than 18 is under-nourished.
If you want to put on weight you can eat more of Chocolates, Ice-creams, Eggs, Milk, Fish.
Produts such as cheese, ghee also help you increase your weight but they should not be over eaten as they can cause hyperlipidemia. Hope you catch up your weight pretty soon. Regards, Dr.Ismail
