I wasn't sure of where to put this, so I assumed this might be the right place.


I have been trying to gain weight, or at least try to keep it the same over the past 4 weeks. Ever since swimming started I have been loosing about a pound a week, and this isn't good for me. I've tried everything. Protein shakes, peanut butter before bed, eating constantly, stuffing my face, you name it. Now I'm eating olives [yum!], but I doubt it will help. I've noticed that I'm more tired too, just this weekend I passed up the chance to go out with some friends because I was too tired from diving practice.


Does anyone here have any advise on how I could pack on some pounds? Or atleast maintain a steady weight? I have a bet with a fellow diver to see who can gain three pounds the quickest.

I think I'll stick with the olives. . . .

Load up on your protein! Also try working out. Build muscle, not fat.


Oh yeah, and I'll donate to you some of my weight!;)

I have started trying the loaded protein diet, hopefully that will help. I think the olives have left a permenant after-taste in my mouth. . . .bleh.

Mmm, pasta. Sounds good right now, I might have that for supper.

Eat like a frat boy. I hear pizza is very effective.

I've tried that, I've tried eating nothing but junk before too. I want to atleast gain back the weight I lost, but that seems impossible.


Does peanut-butter before bed really help?

Protein is good, but don't forget your carbohydrates, pastas, breads, grains all that.

I'm not aiming for having to go up a pants size, I just want to regain the lost pounds. I really just want to stop loosing the weight.

ten mars bars a day. hm. not very healthy. Junk food may be full of energy, but in the long run it really drains you out. I once knew the reasons for this, but I forgot..
so I say protein and all that shit that's part of a healthy diet. Maybe ease back on the swimming/diving a bit. Don't forget vitamins and iron.

Psssht. I wish I could lay off the swimming and diving, but that's not an option. I eat some type of grain bar before practice each day.

Well how about eating 3 more of those before that then?

Oh, and don't forget to eat something hearty after practice.

oh I forgot you're only 14! Don't worry, you will most likely fill out and get curves in a few years. As long as you take care of yourself and eat healthy, you'll be fine.

I'm not worried about my curves, I am perfectly fine with my body. I just don't want to keep loosing weight.

Tiay
12-12-06, 05:58 AM
oh, I figured loosing weight and loosing curves went together. still, I'm no expert but it could just be that your metabolism or whatever is just set up this way. If you're really worried, you could see a doctor...

Love[Sick]

I've seen doctors before, but they say not to worry about it. The sports medicine doctor said it may just be the medicine I am taking for my knee.

Tiay
12-12-06, 06:18 AM
hm, hopefully it is just that, and it'll go back to normal soon.
Otherwise, I can't think of much else except just eat plenty of healthy nutritious foods. I've found that I can eat a lot more than I'd usually do simply if there's more on the table- the convenience factor. :)

You could try some light weight lifting (or heavy weight lifting. Whatever you prefer.) This way you will gain in muscle weight which doesnt burn off like body fat does.

Hang out at my house for a couple weeks. You'll be really built up from all the sex.

I don't think heavy weight lifting is healthy for such young bones...

don't waste time working out; just move around a little. you are probably in school, and you probably get enough exercise walking class-to-class. oh, and eat lots of food.

How bout eating real meals and not just snack bars and junk food. Like Fras said, protein and carbs, that's your best bet. Hamburgers, spaghetti and meatballs, lasagna, all that shit will help put back on the pounds.

How can you rob the cradle when you're still sitting in the cradle? How?

Protein is good, but don't forget your carbohydrates, pastas, breads, grains all that.

If you're building muscle, this is untrue.

You'll get enough carbs by eating the stuff you need for protein, but protein is the #1 thing you should be concentrating on.

I pigged out last night, I ate about 6 tacos. Hehe, my Mom was watching me stuff down the tacos like I was a madman. I ate some ice-cream from the carton, and then I ate six Reese Cups. I got up in the middle of the night and grabbed some leftover pizza from the basketball game.
