Are some people just naturally "underweight"?

I have always been super skinny, even when I was a kid. After middle school, I just sort of stopped growing. I'm 5'4 and I weigh 96lbs. My doctor says that I'm perfectly healthy - everything is working fine. But I constantly have to hear people talk about how thin I am. I KNOW! I eat a ton, sometimes I eat so much I feel sick, but I never get over 100lbs. I have an aunt and a cousin who are the same way. My cousin is 5'7 and 110lbs and my aunt is 5'5 and 93lbs. We're all very healthy. I'm wondering are some people just naturally this way?

18 years old, 112 pounds in weight and 5'9 in height. I can eat all kinds of food all day and everyday and not gain weight at all. I've been trying everything to gain weight, but nothing will work. I used to get called Anorexic in school and some of my family members who were thick and chubby, kept judging me and telling me to eat. I would become very upset and insecure about my weight. A lot of my family members are skinny though, so I guess I'm just naturally thin through genes. So, yes. There are a lot of people who are naturally thin.

Some things that did help me put on a little weight:

-Protein shakes.
-Strength-training.

You won't get very far with protein shakes, but they will help a little bit. Strength-training will help build up muscle tone to make you look like you gained weight, but it will also make you fit.

Yes, some people are just naturally skinny. Just be happy that you're lucky and have this, most people would love to stay skinny.

Yup! Just remember that just because you can eat a lot and stay skinny doesn't mean you should eat whatever you want. Eat a lot!! But still try to eat healthy. Try eating a lot of catbs and protein if you want to try to gain a little bit ^_^

Can you at least tell me if you like your name or not or is that classified E-V info also?
Report as
Haha I like it okay. It's spelled weird so no one ever pronounces it right which drives me insane! But I don't mind how it sounds.

I also have a "normal" sounding cut-down (nickname) that I usually use since most people can't say it.
Report as
You have a nickname other than E-V? *gets jealous* Let me guess, also top secret right?
Report as
Yes...... ^_^ You and Monchie are the only people that call me E-V though! You should feel special :D hahah
Report as
I do, the name isnt that important I'm just the type that gets stuff i cant figure out stuck in my head. I just wish there was a way to get everyone else to call you E-V. I think it would make one hell of a boot camp nickname :D
Report as
Lol! Maybe. But I could get in so much shlt for telling them the wrong name 0_o
Report as
Hahaha! No E-V thats not what I meant :D Usually in boot camp the recruits get nicknames. I just thought it would be awesome if yours was E-V. The drill instructors or other recruits will give them to you so I know it wont happen :(
