Lucky you! Eat alot of dairy products, and bread. You can also buy Ensure or similar "meals in a can", that have added calories for those needing to gain weight or who cannot eat solids. Milkshakes and high calorie pastries.....mmmmmm! GOD I wish I had your problem!!!!

how old are you? you might gain some weight after puberty, or after you're out of the teen years. (a lot of people gain A LOT of weight in their 20s since their metabolism slows down and all)i wouldnt rush to gain weight unless its severe.
