    Good morning. I understand ur worries. If ur bmi is 18.5, its still witin the normal value though at the lower border. Its a easy to gain weight than losing weight though some people nature can be so funny that they might not be big but can be fresh. Some will av to start gainin weight wen dey start givin birth and so on. I will advice u take more food wit calories and also ensure balanced diet. Eat lots of fruits and dont ever starve urself. I will noy advice u to start taking pills that will make u big bcos most of dem ar steroids and too much of steroids ar very very very dangerous to the body. Bcos its the sode effect of the drug deybar using to gain weight. I can advice u takin multivitamins that will help increase ur appetite for food. U can also see a doc for more info.
