Okay, I am. 5,10 and still growing. I have a medium to large frame with broad shoulders. Now, I currently weight 175, my doctor says I could lose 10 pounds but for some reason, I feel like an absolute fatty.

I'm apparently at my current weight, but fat. Anybody know how this is possible. I am looking to lose. 10 to 15 pounds for the military. I have been doing pushups lately and I'm doing pretty well.

Anybody have an answer to this? Please do not put any supplement suggestions! Military training does not allow it period.

At 16 your body's still trying to sort itself out...you'll grow into it man. In the meantime, stay as active as you can and try not to make pizza, fast food, Coke, and potato chips your primary food groups. Push-ups are a good start...maybe think about adding pull-ups and sit-ups. you'd be surprised what kind of results you can get from those three simple moves.

Too add on what Hackdive said when you hit 18(21 for you yanks ) dont let beer pizza pop(soda) and chips become you food of choice
Stop worrying about how you look, and start worrying about how you play. Get out on the field and play paintball the best you can, not stand at home in front of a mirror trying to figure out if your jersey matches your eyes.

Also, please define fat. You would not believe how many people THINK they have a bit of a beer belly, when they are really just bloated. 175 at 5'10" isnt what I would call fat. So you might just be bloated, which is causing your stomach to pooch out.

Well Most of the time my stomach get bigger due to food but I occasionally get bloated when I haven't ate pizza in a while. In the morning, I am seeing m true weight and t isn't that much.


I just have little but of love handles and some stomach fat. I gained some weight overall from eating fries at school. I think I should cut those out and just eat more healthier. I can post pics to show what I mean...

I had that feeling for a while. I just ate terrible, changed up my diet and ate clean. Felt much better. (no noticeable change in weight I might add). What are you eating?

As for your weight, don't bother loosing any, max for the army at your height is 180. Just focus on working out and eating correctly.

As a med student I will recommend:

1.) exercise
Short, fast burst for shorter periods have more benefits
Sprints> jogging for example. On days you don't sprint walk.

2.) eat less in general. Your meal should be slightly bigger than your fist.

3.) less salt. ( don't add salt)

4.) less carbs ( only whole wheat)

5.) absolutely no fast food, junk food, high fructose corn syrup

6.) tea ( it doesn't stay in your body as long as water. Regular tea or green tea unsweetened with truvia or Splenda

7.) cranberry/ Pom juice 1 time a day

8.) sub chicken and pork for fish

9.) stick to it. It will take your metabolism 8 months to change. But once it does it will be harder to gain weight.

Let's see daily diet is

2 whole grain waffles with natural peanut butter, glass or skim milk and oj. ( I drink 3 glasses of milk for the reccoemnded dosage for what trainingn I'll be doing)

Lunch: spicy chicken party with fries and cheese. Water to drink, and sometimes the occasional chocolate shake every 3 weeks or so.

Dinner: just random stuff thrown together that is moderately healthy.

Tonight's dinner at cheesecake factory:

4 cheese pasta( half of it)
3 rootbeers
1 full Hersey chocolate double fudge cheesecake, and about 2 sticks of rye bread....

I feel dead. Not so good that I'm realizing what I've been eating.

Well I am picking up a LA membership to start swimming 5 days a week to work on combat side stroke, so I guess that'll do :)

Very tempting to eat not as healthy when all you do is have someone cook it for you.

I cant say what your body comp is, but even by straight BMI, you are practically right at 25. It is right on the border of "overweight." And overweight by BMI standard is far from what I would consider fat. If you have any muscle on you at all, your BMI shows you as overweight. I know many people in the "obese" category, which have below 10% body fat. And that is the problem with BMI.

Well I have a good amount of leg and calf muscle, but lack in upper strength. Playing soccer all those years made me weak in the upper body.

Since bmi is inaccurate, does that mean I might be regular weight?

I used a fat caliper and checked my fat% it is 21 avg. so that means I need to lose about 9 to 10% of that fat. How long would this take to be healthy? Swimming will help I take it as it is one of the most active things on your body?

Ive been classed as over weight for a few years now, about 27. BMI doesn't take into account muscle or bone density. Its a very outdated test and should be scrapped. I can run a 5 minute mile I'm far from over weight. Pod tests are better.
