Yoga food therapy can cure body thinness..Your body is not assimilating food you take.There is more heat in your body. You take 60% of your food with uncooked vegetables.You should avoid sweet fruits..For 30 days you have to reduce milk,buttermilk,curd to onethird of what you are presently taking. you have to completely avoid sweets and nonveg for two months.you have to take daily 400gms of cucumber or black grapeswrite to -kumrao99@yahoo.co.in

At the age 17 its not suprising that u dont put on wt in spite of junk food. At this age the body metabolism is perfect and u burn up calories easily. but u should start eating nutriious food for the development of body as well as brain.

Hi Shawn,
Junk food makes you gain weight, but it depends on your BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate). Certain people like you might have high BMR which results in no weight gain even when lots of calories are consumed.
In order to gain weight, try eating healthy food having good sugar, carbohydrate and protein content. Add cheese and butter to your food and work-out at least thrice a week (basically weight-training)... This would increase your weight as well as make you stronger and muscular.
