Thread: Question about weight gain

    Default Question about weight gain

    I'm 174cm and weighs about 58kg, my build is tall and thin.

    I'm a very heavy eater, usually a plate of chicken rice at local food court is not enough for me, i will have to order other another plate. When i'm in a buffet spread, i can confirm eat more than my friends and families! I'm not a fan of fast food either, because the food is quite small quantity, you just drink the coke to make you feel full.

    but what i found out is, when i intake a lot of food and don't exercise, my weight will actually remain very constant at 58kg. but IF i got exercise, run or go gym, my weight will actually increase to a max of 60kg!

    Can anybody cares to explain why am i like this?

    sounds like you have quite a good metabolism. how i wish i am like you.
    you gained weight is probably of the muscles you build.

    hmm.. but i lose the muscles equally fast too! the muscles i've built up in a gym over a strict regime of 1 week can drastically reduce in size over 2 weeks.

    Moreover, i intake a lot of fats too. As i'm a great fan of chicken rice, i eat the chicken with the skin and fats. But when i go for my checkup, my fats level is normal!

    So, how to reduce metabolism rate?

    based on BMI calculation here: http://www.nutrition.com.sg/ha/habmi.asp

    your BMI is 19

    so u r almost underweight

    meaning to say your metabolism rate really very high.

    do you drink milk, eat cheese, eggs, etc?
    maybe increase your daily meals from 3 to 4?

    Default Revel in your youth...

    You're 23 years old. Don't worry about it. Enjoy it while it lasts.

    When I was your age, I used to weight a paltry 54kg at height 172cm with a waistline of 24". No matter what I ate, I didn't seem to put on any weight. Now, at age 30, I've reached 68kg and my waistline is 31" And no matter how little I eat, I can't seem to lose any weight.

    So, enjoy it. Your weight will catch up

    i had the same problem when i was your age (not that i so old now lah )
    dont suddenly eat so much else you're gonna gain weight at the wrong area, i.e. tummy

    think you have a high metabolic rate. why not try to gain gain muscles instead

    those on diet will really HATE you
    dont worry too much lah. as you age, your metabolic rate slows down & you'll put on more weight. why not enjoy what you have right now? you could pig out and no worries

    yo behyx, join the club...heh heh...

    same here...eat and eat..still like tekko...
    but i think what some of them said is true...dont over eat...not good...sure will have tummy...then end up looking like ethopian...

    for us high metabolic rate types, have to regularly exercise...else we will never gain weight...

    and i think its not a good thing to eat before you sleep, you are making your stomach work overtime when its supposed to be resting...
    too many shots...

    I think you should eat more proteins like cheese, fresh milk(not carnation milk) and red meats(lamb & steak)......do more weight lifting too! different exercise build different muscles lor.
    Not just your muscles, the calcium in milk build up your bones too.....

    Good luck

    Just wait u reach 28 years old like me.

    For some reason, my body is stopping me from eating excessively to maintain my 170cm 50kg frame.

    I definitely used to eat much more when I was younger.

    So eat while you still can..healthily of course.
