I would try building muscle. It seems like food isn’t the problem. Maybe working out is the solution, try and gain muscle and don’t do as much cardio

Hey! Just FYI, even if your BMI indicates you're underweight doesn't mean you're not healthy! My BMI is 17.7 (<18.5 is "underweight") and I'm just as strong-if not stronger-than many of my bigger friends. There are also factors such as extremity length and metabolism you have to think about when comparing your lifestyle/looks to others. Although, I understand wanting to look different (even though our body type is often what runway model agencies look for ;) ), so here's what I copied from the Mayo Clinic's website:

Eat more frequently. When you're underweight, you may feel full faster. Eat five to six smaller meals during the day rather than two or three large meals.

Choose nutrient-rich foods. As part of an overall healthy diet, choose whole-grain breads, pastas and cereals; fruits and vegetables; dairy products; lean protein sources; and nuts and seeds.

Try smoothies and shakes. Don't fill up on diet soda, coffee and other drinks with few calories and little nutritional value. Instead, drink smoothies or healthy shakes made with milk and fresh or frozen fruit, and sprinkle in some ground flaxseed. In some cases, a liquid meal replacement may be recommended.

Watch when you drink. Some people find that drinking fluids before meals blunts their appetite. In that case, it may be better to sip higher calorie beverages along with a meal or snack. For others, drinking 30 minutes after a meal, not with it, may work.

Make every bite count. Snack on nuts, peanut butter, cheese, dried fruits and avocados. Have a bedtime snack, such as a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, or a wrap sandwich with avocado, sliced vegetables, and lean meat or cheese.

Top it off. Add extras to your dishes for more calories — such as cheese in casseroles and scrambled eggs, and fat-free dried milk in soups and stews.

Have an occasional treat. Even when you're underweight, be mindful of excess sugar and fat. An occasional slice of pie with ice cream is OK. But most treats should be healthy and provide nutrients in addition to calories. Bran muffins, yogurt and granola bars are good choices.

Exercise. Exercise, especially strength training, can help you gain weight by building up your muscles. Exercise may also stimulate your appetite.

it’s called metabolism, and it’s not something you can change very easily!! It’s when your body can digest food fast so it doesn’t sit in your system for long. I would recommend maybe working out to add some muscles and that will definitely help ❤️‍🔥
