How much caliories we shuold eat in a day..For girl is 17 years?

Difficult to Say: Knowing you are 17 & female is not enough to determine this. Are you normal weight, overweight, underweight? How tall are you? Are you very active or pretty inactive? All of these factors come into play. Webmd and many other sites have calorie calculators that ask a variety of questions and can give a range for each day. Also note that the number will be an average per day. ...Read more

My twelve year old son loves to lift weights, how much weight is too much?

Use a trainer: Weightlifting like many sports activities can be beneficial if done right & can produce significant injury if done wrong. Any 12yo should be supervised by a trained professional, preferably one certified in the area.Early training focuses on technique & low intensity weights. Power lifting & body building are not recommended until the kid reaches skeletal maturity (final height, b.O., shaves). ...Read more

I'm too slim. My weight is 55 kg. at the age of 17. How can i get a bit healthier?

I'm too slim. My weight is 55 kg. at the age of 17. How can i get a bit healthier?

How tall are you: 121 pounds may not be too slim if you are not very tall. The best way to find out if you are underweight is to know your height as well as your weight. You ask about getting healthier. Does that mean you are equating low weight with poor health or that you are, indeed, ill a lot? Ask back with your height and with the reasons you feel you need to be healthier and more guidance can be provided. ...Read more

How to get fat faster i'm only 48 kilo my height is 5'8?

Protein: As long as you are working out / physically active, you can help gain mass with a protein supplement (either powder-->shake type or bar). However, it is easier to gain fat, which is not desirable. Not everyone is "big, " it may be much wiser to accept you for you. ...Read more

I'm fat guy i wanna lose my weight I'm working hard in gym for 2 hour but I'm confuse about workout timing tell me which time is best for workout?

I'm fat guy i wanna lose my weight 
I'm working hard in gym for 2 hour but I'm confuse about workout timing   tell me which time is best for workout?

Best time = daily: There is no single best time for exercise aside from whenever you can do so regularly. For the most part, it doesn't matter whether you exercise in morning, afternoon, evening or even night (although latter may lead to sleep issues but not in everyone!). So just find best time for you. And by the way, 30 minutes/day most days of week of moderate to intense exercise is plenty to get healthy. ...Read more

Hmmmm . . . .: If this is your son and he's living with you, it sounds like you have some serious discussions to have with him. Like what his contributions will be to the household, whether through "sweat equity" or money for rent, food, etc. He needs to participate in tangible ways.

Body shape: At 16, your body is still changing and growing. I would continue to eat a balanced diet and get rest and exercise regularly. Lifting weights is a way to increase your muscle mass. ...Read more

Here are some ...: The length and circumference as reported at age 16 are good measurement and you still have another 2 years of time span to grow since the physical growth will stop soon marching into adulthood - for men roughly at 18. So do something to better yourself for survival, growth, & living-on, and don't be obsessed with genital growth which is not the whole thing of future. ...Read more

In normal range: His body mass index (ratio of weight to square of height) is 18.6 "normal" is considered 18-25; so he's at the low end of normal. His ideal body weight (by 2 different methods) comes to 66 kg, which gives a bmi of 22.6, a value more in the middle of the normal range. ...Read more

How to put weight ...I'm looking very skinny ..

Muscle up: Almost all men, especially your age, want lean muscle. Being lean / trim is more important to most of the women you'll meet than having a lot of muscle mass. You'll gain both by aerobic and especially resistance training; these are good for own sake. Creatine helps with bulk if this is what you want. Mr. Gigandet (photo) despite being "skinny" is fit and has the body type that's most popular today. ...Read more

I'm 19, tall at 6'2, male and skinny. My spine has always stuck out farther than others and I want to know how to fix it. Working out? Eating?

I'm 19, tall at 6'2, male and skinny. My spine has always stuck out farther than others and I want to know how to fix it. Working out? Eating?

Strength training: If by "stuck out", you mean that the vertebrae are very prominent, you may be able to increase the size of the paravertebral musculature to make them less visible. Deadlifts, shoulder shrugs, and other strength training exercises should help. If you feel that the spine is curved at all, however, please consult a doctor before proceeding with exercises. ...Read more

What is a healthy weight for a 17 year old girl? I look smaller than the scale says... (5'6/195/hourglass figure/dd chest/big thighs)

Different for each : As you suggest, everyone is shaped differently, but we can use the body mass index (an imperfect tool comparing weight to height, with normal ranges for age & sex). At that age & height, a weight of 183 would lower your bmi to 29.5, below the 95th %ile & no longer obese. 155 lowers the bmi to 25, below the 85th % & not overweight. These are just #s. Crash diets are unhealthy. Discuss with your pcp. ...Read more
