There was a time when I was fat at 6'2" and 190. Now at 6'2" and 190 I'm quite lean.
Human normal average != American average by a long shot. Quite sad really.

Though I'd throw in a ton of meat. I had trouble gaining weight too until I actually started tracking what I ate. If you are that skinny and you aren't eating 4000 calories a day, you aren't trying hard enough
Anyway...take home points are good across the board
