    Ok I don't have a disorder, not at all, but statistically it looks that way becauase I weigh less than 65% of the acerage weight for my age and height. I'm only an inch under average height. I don't starve myself, and I've been trying for a while to put on weight, it just never worked so I gave up. CAn anyone help me? I've been underweight all my life, maybe it's not a problem because my body's used to it? I just want to do something as quickly as possible. I suffered from anorexia as a child but don't anymore, maybe that is a reason?
    Just... any advice will be appreciated... thank you,.

    If you eat extra protein in your diet that helps to put on weight. I'm not sure on anything else.

    Have you been checked by a doctor it coud be you have an active thyroid.
    It is best to make sure you don't have anything wrong with you medically
    Your doctor then can order a dietitian to work with you to increase your weight and if it is your thyroid medication can help take care.

    Do you sweat a lot - from your palms or back? There are things you can do to gain weight. Eat a smaller breakfast, and very large dinners. Try protein shakes?
