Hello. : Hello. I would not expect that your bodyfat would drop because you start having periods. Maybe what your mother was referring to, was that your body curves can change with puberty. For instance, the waist can be smaller in comparison to the size of the chest or the buttocks. I am glad to hear that you have a healthy weight for your height and age. The most important thing is to be healthy. We all have fat. It is necessary to have fat in our bodies. One thing that i find sad, is that so many girls don't love their bodies. Many girls want to look like skinny models. Some girls go on drastic diets or eat too few calories to try to become really skinny. Did you know that it isn't always healthy to be really skinny? I recommend that you eat 5 servings a day of vegetables and 4 servings of fruit per day. Learn about eating healthy fats. I don't recommend that you try to eat really low calories at your age. Your body needs nourishment to grow. Try not to eat lots of junk food. Aerobic exercise is very important for good health; whether it is walking, or jogging or swimming etc. You take care. If you focus on being healthy and loving yourself - everything else fits into place. ...Read more

How can i stop metabolism(or whatever) from making me fat? Age 12, height 5,5" weight 75. I don't even eat a lot.

Healthy diet: If you had hormonal testing showing that your thyroid and pituitary are working, then it isn't your metabolism making you gain weight. More likely, it is the kind of food you eat, rather than how much. Focus on getting a diet heavily loaded with fruits, veggies and whole grains. Limit red/processed meats and cheese. Eliminate sugar drinks and fast/processed foods altogether. Exercise every day! ...Read more

See Dr., and then...: Helpful weight loss diets have natural foods that take time to chew but contain few calories. Examples include carrots, celery, and iceberg lettuce (little/no salad dressing). When shopping for fruits, buy small ones no bigger than a tennis ball, because fruits have sugar. Drinks without calories include water and green tea. A calorie is a calorie, but surely avoid sugar & simple starch calories. ...Read more

Fat percentage: It is true that your weight is within normal limits for your height, but if out of shape, then the percent of your weight coming from fat could be high. To change this, adding aerobic exercise (brisk walking or running for example) 30 minutes 5 days/week should help you trade fat for muscle. If you already do this, then avoid sugar & refined grains, and avoid drinking calories. Meds - bad idea. ...Read more

Look at the calories: One should choose an exercise he or she really enjoys. Any form of exercise burns calories, so if one does not eat or drink more calories than he is using during his exercise, then his body will burn up fat as fuel. However, if a person drinks a large orange juice (about 300 calories) while exercising, and exercises away only 200 calories, he will still get bigger even though he is exercising. ...Read more

What do you want?: You are a young man and you almost certainly want lean muscle, not fat. You are probably also light-framed like brad pitt -- it's a plus overall. Hit the gym and do resistance work. Make friends with guys who lift. Ask your physician if creatine and/or an electronic muscle stimulator is in order. Plenty of protein, consider a cheap protein supplement. Your penis won't change & is probably fine. ...Read more

Lower Carbs: I suggest you lower intake of processed starch (bread, potatoes, rice) and sugar. Also make sure you eat 2-4 oz. Of lean protein with every meal and try to get most of your carbohydrates from fruits and vegetables rather than starch. For fat sources plant based fat as well as fish based fat are healthy and will help you lose the abdominal adipose tissue (belly fat). ...Read more

Weight: Your child has reasonable BMI. I would continue to give him a good diet. For most people this is low glycemic: watch not too much soda candy, etc. Encourage activity. He is 13 and still growing. I would think the areas you are concerned about will lessen over the next couple of years. ...Read more

GET DNA TESTING: For one who is 66" in height, ideal weight is 140#, depending on bone structure, with a range of 125# to 155#. One becomes leaner through either burning fat or building muscle or both. An exercise regimen that combines aerobics for calorie burning and resistance training for muscle stimulation is best. Monitor body fat (ideal is <20% for men). Get dna saliva test to determine best diet for you. ...Read more
