    not only am i gonna try and get as much rep as he has, i am also gonna lose the weight i gained over the summer! at the beginning of the summer i weighed 120 pounds and now im up to 167, thats too much weight to gain in 90 days! we just got a tredmill (moms idea) so im gonna run on that for 30 minutes everyday on a 10.0 incline at the 5 speed, i am also gonna drink a bottle of water everyday and cut down my moutain dew consumption down to one can every 3 days, im gonna eat healthier and hopefully i will lose that 47 pounds so i will be back at my old self!

    Wil,
    Unless you have been living on doughnuts and Big Macks over the summer and know where that weight came from you should check with your doctor. Half a pound plus per day is some serious gain. Be careful...W

    Good luck on your weight loss. It is so much easier to gain than lose. Just hand in and stick to it.:lol:

    At 16, some of that is probably due to maturation (muscle synthesis due to increased testosterone). 47 pounds in 90 days is a bit much, especially considering that you started at 120. I would definitely incorporate weight lifting along with your cardio. Feel free to contact me any questions that you might have. BTW - my Master's is in Exercise Physiology.

    I wish I weighed 160!!

    I've been sitting at about 120 for the last 22 years.

    If I did gain that much weight though, I would have to make sure that it is a good mix of muscle and fat.

    Hey Wil, I thought that happened to all teenage boys. Are all your jeans a few inches short and your shoes all to small? You may just be a growing boy.

    Wil,
    just be careful, don't try to lose the weight too fast, you can aggrivate your gall bladder. & I'd hate to hear about you having GB surgery!
    Good Luck! Keep us posted!

    1) How tall are you?
    2) Are you involved in athletics?

    Based on your current weight (167#) and your starting weight (120#), let's shoot for 140#. (Unless you are really short, 120# might mean you were alittle underweight to begin with).

    Based on these stats, I would recommend 2000 k/cal per day to reach and maintain a healthy 140#, broken down as follows:

    Protein - 1 gram per #. Therefore, 140 grams per day. 1 gram of protein = 4 calories. 140 x 4 = 560 calories/day of protein. Sources of protein: any red meats (including deer!), fish, chicken, pork, eggs, milk, etc.

    Carbohydrates - 2 grams per #. 140 # x 2 = 280 grams per day. 4 calories per gram x 280 grams = 1120 calories per day from carbohydrates. Sources of carbohydrates: pasta, rice, potatoes, veggies, fruits, etc. Try to avoid simple sugars and choose whole wheat versions of foods if possible.

    Fat - a lot of people think all fat is bad, which is not true. Fat is important for storing vitamins, producing hormones, and metabolizing other fats. I recommend .3 gram of fat per #. .3 x 140 = 42 grams per day. There are 9 calories per gram of fat, therefore 42 x 9 = 378 calories per day from fats. Best sources include fish (especially salmon), nuts (especially almonds), and flax seed oil.

    As far as how many times you should eat each day, it depends. Generally, the more often you eat the better. Don't be too strict - allow yourself to enjoy that ONE slice of pizza, ONE Big Mac, or ONE soda from time to time. Also be sure to listen to your body. If you don't lose weight, cut back on your carbs. If you are dropping weight too fast (more than 2# per week) and feel tired, up your carbs a bit. Let me know if you ever need advice. Keep us posted on your results!
