    Sorry, but I know what anorexia is.
    So why are you calling him anorexic?

    I'm in a similar position to you, not quite as extreme though. I'm 6ft and 9 stone and I swear I don't look any bigger than you. I eat alot though, obviously not enough I guess.

    Yes I know...
    I said he is probably anorexic...not that he definitely is..because I don't actually know him. But don't you agree 8 stone for a guy of his height is extremely skinny? Thats all I'm saying.
    i love the way you call him skinny yet you are skinny yourself :rolleyes:

    Basically, i'm 18 and the most self conscious person in the world. I've had trouble with my weight since I can remember, and it's got to the stage where if i don't do something now, i think i'll go mad!

    Alot of people on here seem very knowledgeable on the fitness subject, so I was wondering if anyone could help me out.

    Basically, I do near to no excercise currently, because quite frankly i'm embarassed. I can't do a single push-up i don't think.. I doubt I could run for more then 5 minutes, either..

    Here is an attached picture of my icky body (sorry)

    I'm 6ft 3 and just over 8 stone.


    HELP!]
    people need to stop calling you anorexic, because 1. you wants to gain weight and be more healthy and 2. anorexia is a mental disease that you can't judge from a picture.
    either way you do need to talk to a professional about what's the safest and best way for you to gain weight because if you go about it the wrong way it might be dangerous. my mum's a dietitian and i think you need to gradually get some exercise into your life and gain weight steadily

    Try eating Six meals a day fella, 500 calories a meal. http://www.askscooby.com/ This is a site that bodbuilders frequent, absorb the information, the best way for you to gain weight is to gain muscle mass.

    I don't know a single female who can do more than 10 legitimate pushups. True I don't know any women who lift but even so it's very rare they are good at bodyweight exercises.

    Soz just don't believe. Plus seemed to needlessly make the OP feel more inferior.
    To be fair. Most girls I know can do more than 10 pushups.

    because if you are 5ft6 your BMI is 16.9 and if you are 5ft 7 it is 16.4, granted not as bad as OP but its still low

    He might be a lot of things. Pulling an e-diagnosis out your ass based on nothing, however, is not particularly helpful. Damaging, if anything.

    yes you are. i think something like 80% of women get amenorrhoea under a bmi of 17.5. you're preeeetty underweight. perhaps we should start e-diagnosing you with anorexia too

    What is wrong with everyone?? I'm not underweight! I just do a lot of sports..I think i'm perfectly healthy and if you knew me in real life then you'd probably think the same.

    I'm 5 ft 6, and 7 and a half stone. That can't be underweight. A lot of ppl I know weigh less and are taller.
