I think i am a bit thin if i want to tell correctly i am 6.2 inches height so that makes me look very thin . Even though i eat well and sleep well i can't get some fats into my body . My parents are worrying that they gets me good foods and am spoiling my health by being seated in PC and simply roaming in cycle . Can some tell some way to get some fats ?

There is always difference between good food and balance food. I think you should record your daily intake for at least one week and see whether you are taking a balance diet or not. With exercise and every thing if you can then meet with some dietitian, he ll let you know the reason whether it is due to your diet or activity or due to any other hormonal problem. Have a good day...:)

But i dont think normal balanced food give us some fat or some muscles . They can make us healthy only , and even healthy condition doesn't mean we are fat or having a good muscle

Assuming you are asking about weight gain, High trans fat foods, well balanced diet and routine exercising will increase muscle mass, hence you weigh more. You may not get fat, but you certainly will be toned and heftier.

You probably want muscle more than you want fat. So continue to eat right, get plenty of exercise, and sleep well, but now start building up your strength by doing some weight training. You can start with little hand weights, no need to run to the gym and try to lift a mountain. You do need to get up and turn the computer off. If you want to be fat then you can continue sitting, but I don't think you want to be fat.... you just want to gain some weight. Go muscle. It's better for your health than fat is.

Fat really doesn't change into muscle. The process for getting fat and the process for getting muscle are different. Muscle can devolve into fat but it typically doesn't work the other way around. In order to gain muscle you need to be doing weight training and other exercises. You're not going to get muscle by trying to get some fat.

I agree. What you need is muscle mass. And in order to acquire it, you need to exercise. Regardless, you should make a habit of exercising. You're obviously young and burning the calories as soon as you ingest them, but should your metabolism change -as it tends to do with age-, you might find it more difficult to keep the pounds off. And be careful what you wish for. Fat is real easy to come by, but real hard to get rid off.

You are so lucky. There are people that can eat anything and how much they want and never get fat.

You probably have a really high metabolism which is what is making it hard for you to gain fat. I am not sure what to tell you as I could recommend eating unhealthy but that isn't good either. Sitting at a computer would make you more fat I would think as your body's metabolism slows down. Don't eat as much energy giving foods? Sorry I can't be of more help.
