Muscle weighs more than fat, so maybe lift more weights to gain the weight. Meat and potatoes.
If you're in good shape, that might get you through. They may be more worried about overweight applicants.
I'm 22, but I've been this weight for about five years now, only losing or gaining weight when I had a flu or something.
I often bike ride upwards to twenty miles without a break, my fitness is not in question in that regards, but the recruiter I spoke to told me they are quite stringent with their weight requirements.
I'll begin weight training while completing my Masters, but in the mean time I am going to try to get my calorie intake up.
I'm going tomorrow to buy some bananas and avocados, what else should I be on the look out for?
