    I have this friend. He is very skinny. Should I be concerned for his health or is this okay? He always says he wants to put on weight but I am worried he could be bulimic or something.

    To me, it looks like alot of weight loss from some kind of substance abuse

    EDIT:
    Okay, I re-thought this thing, and it does look like a bulimic case, or a lack of eating all together.

    Hes got some fat on his cheeks. Maybe he just has a very good metabolism to burn calories ?

    Do you have any evidence beyond the fact that he looks skinny? It's not terribly uncommon for guys to be this skinny at this age; you certainly wouldn't be able to tell an eating disorder from just these photos. Any other indications?

    Obviously I don't know his exact age, but I'm fairly certain from those pictures that he's younger than 25. And guys under 25 are commonly that skinny naturally.

    He maybe slightly underweight but nothing abnormal. I think if you want to look for eating disorders you might want to look more into the person's self perception. If they're like "i'm so fat" and bs like that all the time then they might have a problem, otherwise i'd accredit his skinniness to a fast metabolism

    I don't know if you realize this, but it's fairly well acknowledged that a lot of people in developed countries, particularly the US, are overweight and/or obese. An 'average' weight doesn't tell us a lot about what is natural, healthy, or appropriate. We don't know this person's weight, height, medical history, or other things about his body (like how muscular he is), so we can't really make a judgment call here. I wasn't saying all guys under 25 are that skinny naturally; that's a clearly incorrect statement. I was saying, anecdotally, that it's my observation that I see plenty of guys that are under 25 who are that skinny without aiming to be so.

    Also, 20-29 is a very different category than under 25 (and, as it turns out, he's 19). Your metabolism tends to slow down as you reach your thirties, and people settle down and take more sedentary jobs, so obviously the average weight is going to be influenced by that.

    He isn't even that skinny. He probably looks skinnier to you because your fat, but he seems to be a healthy weight. It's very unlikely he has an eating disorder, and very likely he is someone with a naturally thin body type.

    Fair enough, but he still doesn't look normal from my own observations of 19yr olds.

    Are his parents/direct family skinny as well? I'm bitch-ass skinny myself (47kg ~ 103.6 pounds), though a happy healthy boy. Odds are it's genetics.

    It would help to know height vs. weight. I'm not huge myself, 178 cm and 57 kg (5'10", 125 lbs).
