get some weights and eat lots of decent healthy properly cooked meat including seafood.
... and plenty of fresh vegetables. Milk and cheese provide protein and calcium to help develop bone to go with your new muscles.

No doubt a proper nutritionist could give a more detailed answer.

Good luck.

Your BMI is 16.6 which falls into the "underweight" category. The threshold for "normal" is 18.5 which means you need to put on about 10-11lbs.
I woudn't worry too much if I were you, at your age, you may experience a sudden growth spurt, but it woudn't do you any harm to increase your intake of healthy food and perhaps try to put on a little muscle.

like breasts if u havnt got them already......
i wouldnt worry, the army wont turn u down, they`ll just tell u to sort it out if it is a major problem, other than that do what the others people have said, as it doesnt do any harm as stated

Don't keep worrying about your weight young un. You should enjoy your food, throw out the scales and smile at yourself every day in the mirror.
Maybe tell your mum or dad to see what they think. If they are not bothered then go to your doctor- then if he says you are fine- then please stop worrying and enjoy the best years of your life. Don't worry at your age-have some fun with your pals.
Best wishes young un.

hmmm... I was like you at 15, probably about the same height aswell.

im 17 and 5ft 8 and 8st 12 now.

try bulking up on musle formula drinks from USN and some high protein foods should get your weight up.
