Doctor

A:   Thank you for writing to us.

It is possible that you are just experiencing a growth spurt in the body. This will cause you to appear thin and not gain weight soon enough. Here are a few things you can do to help you:
Have a balanced meal of carbs, protein and fat in the ratio 50:40:10
Have many meals several times a day and up to 7 times a day
Have a lot of fruits and vegetables
Exercise 30 minutes daily
Follow this for 2 weeks to 1 month and if you do not gain weight, please see a Doctor.

Hope this helps you. Wishing you the best.
