Kids your age have a high metabolism which means you process food quickly. Also teens are usually are active so you need that food for energy. But now a days with all this junk food, you can gain weight easily. But be aware it will not happen overnight. It takes months to put on noticeable weight. But once its there, unless you do something it will just keep piling on and before you know it you will be overweight.

As you age, your body will slow down. You can eat a lot of junk food and not gain weight (it happens, its not unusual), however, overtime the lack of nutrients will likely begin to tax your body. I cant say exactly when symptoms may produce themselves, however, you may be able to stave them off. Although you are eating junk food, you can incorporate here and there some healthful foods (like fruit, vegetables, nuts and seeds). You can try to eat a salad sometimes, or snack on fruit or nuts from time to time. These provide healthful oils and fats for your body as well as fiber to help clean your system. Also these things can give you the vitamins and minerals that can help provide energy and nutrients to keep your organs working efficiently.

The downsides of junk food are not just about weight. Eating junk food means your health is suffering. Whether you gain weight or not, you are still unhealthy, Exercising doesn't undo all the salt, chemicals and saturated fat that you are ingesting. An unhealthy diet causes permanent damage to your heart and other organs no matter what weight you are. I'd suggest trying to eat properly for the sake of your health.

I was the same way at your age, a bottomless pit. One day, your metabolism may change, and weight can creep on, but you can stay ahead of it by eating healthier foods, go for fruit rather than chips more often than not. Water rather than soda. There are lots of foods that can keep you feeling satisfied without piling on calories. Exercise, or just running around being a kid not sitting around doing nothing will be one of your best friends. Enjoy being a kid.

You know what... if you are able to eat a lot and not gain weight, you should consider yourself lucky! So eat whatever you like... if anything, maybe stay away from too much fatty foods and sugars.

Glucosamine itself is supposed to be very helpful for promoting joint health so you need to look for a drink or supplement that contains it without all those extra additives and colorings. Have you looked at your local health food stores or a whole foods market (if you are in the US)? I am sure that you can find something that has at least a little less than what you have listed above. Hope this helps. Good luck!
