Unusually big appetite? For a active person? Can't stop eating why?

Unusually big appetite? For a active person? Can't stop eating why? Topic: Unusually big appetite? For a active person? Can't stop eating why?

Question: I am a competitive swimmer and runner (I exercise 6 days a week) and have been doing so for at least 3 years, so I have always had a low appetite. Recently I have had a huge appetite, and that is not normal for me. I adaquately fuel myself before/after workouts, so it's not that. Why is this happening? How can I stop it? And I'm 16, at my full height-5 8.5

Youre metabolism spiked,by spiked I mean is high thats why youve been overeating.Drink water before you eat so you can feel fuller and that way youll eat less.or eat fruits or vegetables before youre main dish.

I wish it were that simple I really do.Initially, you will lose some weight in the first few weeks but then your body thinks it is starving and will hang on to fat stores. Of course, over a period of time, it will have to use up some of the fat stores and it will burn muscle which you don't want to happen. This results in loss of lean body mass. This can be dangerous for individuals who are not drastically overweight to begin with as the body can break down the tissues surrounding internal organs, including the heart. Multivitamins work better if they are taken with food. I have never been able to take them on an empty stomach without throwing up and I have tried. The only part you mentioned that was good is the water. The water will make you feel less hungry and you will eat less. You should eat a balanced meal and include exercise in your daily routine. I know it seems slow and takes a lot of work but it is worth it in the long run. Good luck to you.

Oh my God! Why would you even CONSIDER that? I'm sorry if this seems like I'm lecturing you, but I'm UBERSKINNY and it's not all it's cracked up to be! Actually, that's the understatement of the MILLENNIUM. It just plain SUCKS. There's NO way you can't NOT pass out while you're playing a sport and you're anorexic. Want some advice? THROW AWAY YOUR WEIGHT SCALE AND DON'T EVEN THINK TWICE. I'm SICK AND TIRED of hearing people complain about how "fat" they are and how the "NEED to lose weight" or they'll be fat and ugly forever. Well, I'm SKINNY and ugly. But I'm PROUD of it. If you're really that worried about your weight, talk to your doctor. You don't need to be anorexic to lose weight. You don't need to lose weight quickly. As long as you're healthy, there shouldn't be a problem with you're weight. Talk to your doctor about your thoughts on becoming anorexic and ask if there's anything you can do. DO NOT stop eating. DO NOT skip lunch and dinner. DO NOT eat only lettuce and spinach. DO NOT BECOME ANOREXIC. PERIOD. END OF STORY. TALK TO YOUR DOCTOR OR A PARENT OR A TEACHER OR SOMEBODY YOU TRUST! THIS ISN'T HEALTHY! YOU NEED TO TELL SOMEONE ABOUT THIS!!!!!!!

How old are you? Because if you are a teenager, it may just be a growth spurt. You body realizes that it will be growing soon, and is now stocking up on nutrients and proteins

Weird. I was always under the impression that exercise actually increases your appetite...not inhibits it. If so, then you are perfectly normal....

When he/she is drying after showering. Surely you have sight and can see until you have lathered in soap it's not clean. When do you stop wiping?.. your last tool of wiping before YOU "know when to stop"? Is tissue your last tool? lol Do YOU even know when to stop wiping? Maybe you've been stopping too early; causing a dirt road path beneath your cheeks.
