Weight Gain Bloated oh the feeling :/ Jul 18 2010
14:37 (UTC)

I'm running into bloating issues as well. Especially in this heat wave. For me, it's mostly around my legs, neck and face. The last time I had swelling in my face close to this bad was when I got my wisdom teeth removed. >.<  

I've cut way back on sodium and I'm drinking tons of water too.

Young Calorie Counters cross country help! Jul 06 2010
15:14 (UTC)

I'm going out for cross-country for the first time this fall also. I'm so nervous! I pass the 3 mile mark of my runs in 22 minutes..but I save my strength to complete 6 miles, so I hold back a little.. I have some trail experience, it's very fun leaping across ditches and dodging rocks. I know I'm not the fastest, but I'm not lastest either. :P

I'm a 15 year old girl and my best mile time was 6:35, is that good? But I ran 5 miles at a 7:30 pace prior to kicking it up to that pace..I'd love to see how I can go fresh.

Foods Cereal. CEREAL. Jul 04 2010

I really wish they sold cereal in sing-serving sample boxes so I could try a variety of them and not feel terrible for throwing out a whole box I didn't like. :( I know they used sell sugary-cereal that way.

Favorite healthier cereals: Original Cheerios, Special K Protein Plus, Wheat Chex and Crispix!

Sugary cereal: Fiber One Caramel Delight, Honey Nut Cheerios,and Chocolate Cheerios mmmm

I hardly ever eat cereal with milk. It gets soggy so fast, so I usually have it with yogurt and fruit as a snack. Or to add crunch to oatmeal.

I don't care for the taste of red meat, chicken, turkey, or any other bird. I'll only consume seafood sparingly, which makes me a pescetarian if you had to categorize it. I really dislike candies. I'll use cocoa powder in oatmeal or in protein shakes to get my chocolate fix, but sweets from big candy companies are too sweet for my taste, ick. Anything with trans fats/partially hydrogenated oils I'll drop like a rock. White bread, potatoes, and white rice/pasta are tasteless. Sprouted Ezekiel bread is delicious. Anyone here who hasn't tried it, get thee to the grocery now! I won't eat anything fried or greasy, even the smell is nauseating. Same goes for mayonnaise, heavy creams and salad dressings.

Weight Gain Gaining weigh-ins!! Jun 21 2010
14:54 (UTC)

As I said in my previous post, I do not feel compelled to burn off everything I eat..I've been told I look quite muscular for being as small as I am, but I still want gain more muscle as well as fat to look healthier. Fat is like the oil in the machine, you need it! Every dang runner on my cross-country team needs to be on a weight gain diet.. :P 

By how much would you recommend I bump it up?? Just wondering..

Weight Gain Gaining weigh-ins!! Jun 20 2010

     Thanks all for your concern, but I am not in recovery for an eating disorder of any kind. Though, I did fight through an episode of depression that really killed my appetite and cause me to drop weight. That was months ago. I weighed myself today because I WANT to gain weight. If it takes more than 2,500 cals to do so, then I'll eat more, no biggie. I have had my thyroid, kidneys, liver, and blood tested and they all came out normal, but I've read here on CC that the metabolism speeds up when you initially up your calories...It's not really unheard of for  competitive distance runners such myself to be too thin (not saying that it makes it ok or anything) I love to run and be active, but not because I feel like I have to burn off everything I eat. It boosts my mood and clears my mind. And I love food too! More food is a'okay with with me ;)

I'm 5'2". I'm not really on a strict program, just keeping track of what I eat in a food journal to make sure I'm hitting 2,500 cals everyday and reading everything I can about how to weight gain on CC as well :) And as a side note: No, I'm not recovering from an ED or anything.

I am 15, female, and have been on a 2,500+ calorie weight gain diet for a week now..and haven't gained DIDDLY SQUAT!Yell Grrr...

The good news is that my overall mood and energy levels have improved and my athletic performance has absolutely skyrocketed. I feel like superwoman! I wont overdo it, though.

Will the weight eventually start coming on when my metabolism evens out? Or do I need to increase?

I don't think it's right to hate on the skinny folks. I'm tired of hearing the words "thin", "skinny", and "size zero" used interchangeably with "superficial plastic" or "dumb barbie". I'm underweight and I'm trying my hardest to get to a healthy weight much like a lot of the rest of population is doing. As a distance runner and someone who enjoys the great outdoors, it's difficult, but it's not an excuse for my problem. It's hurtful to me when people make rude comments on my body..Would it acceptable to call an overweight individual on the street a fat blob or tell them that they need to lose weight? Nope. Same principle with thin people, just the other side of the coin. I'm also the opposite of a barbie girl, lmao. So, let's just not judge other people for their body type, fat or thin, m'kay?

Something that make you happy on a bad day: Going for a run and listening to music. 

Favorite song at the moment: Cryin' Like A B*tch by Godsmack
