    Default Underweight?

    So I went to the doctor's yesterday and she told me I was like 10-15 underweight at 83.5 pounds (82 pounds at the lowest point of the day) for 4' 10-5'. and needed to gain weight. Should I really try to gain weight if none of my bones are even close to sticking out or showing? Would it truly be beneficial?

    yes, because being underweight is just as bad as being overweight health wise.

    If you go by optimal BMI, you would want to hit about 100 pounds to be normal weight, at least from what I've read.

    (my GF is just an inch taller than you and is around 102, don't tell her I told you though)

    You're either dangerously underweight or you're a fourth grader.

    Weight is meaningless.

    What's your bodyfat %?

    i am not sure... I have enough fat to have regular periods and I look bigger than I weigh (somewhat muscular).
