Why not try some of the new protein drinks that are out there and combine that with some weight training. Also if you look good at your weight I wouldn't worry to much about what the charts say. Remember that is just the average ranges and doesn't mean it is right for you.

well i think i look skinny and so do other people im sure. Id just like to put on 15-20lbs. Ive tried eating more and lifting weights , but making sure i eat the right amount of calories is hard with different foods everday, and lots of time weight training just burns more calories. can anyone post a routine?
