Sometimes I don't get to eat supper until 8 or 9 at night. but I workout before that. is this okay? or will this make me gain weight?

Sometimes I don't get to eat supper until 8 or 9 at night. but I workout before that. is this okay? or will this make me gain weight?

Depends on calories: People gain weight from eating, if they eat a total daily number of calories that are more calories than they use up that day. If the total calories burned (used) is less than the total eaten, weight increases. If the total calories burned is more than taken in, weight decreases. So, it does not matter if a person eats late (in regards to weight gain) as long as she is not eating EXTRA calories. ...Read more

Is there a diet for autistic adults with violent behavior problems which will help them feel more at ease? He is  only 18 and goes  through very dramatic ups and downs, we think it might be hormones.

Maybe: I know of a book called: special diets for special kids by lewis which may have some suggestions. In general though, the person to whom you are referring may benefit much more by seeing a board certified child psychiatrist. It may be hormones like you say, and that can be addressed as well.

Hi, i play sport i go to the gym, how can I gain at least 25 pound in 3-5 weeks please you specifics like workout structure and exercise plus diet!

Unrealistic goal: If your goal is to gain strength, power, keep your speed and gain lean mass only doing it in 3-5 weeks is unrealistic. With proper diet and exercise this is a realistic goal for 6 to 12 months. The calories needed to produce a 25 lb weight gain in 3-5 weeks will be almost exclusively non lean weight gain. It takes 3500 kcal of addition intake for each additional lb of weight gain. ...Read more
