Over the summer I have lost weight because of so much physical activity (sometimes up to 4+ hours) I need to gain that weight back for football. I'm not sure how I can keep up with my calorie input and output because I have been burning off more calories than I can consume. We have tried protein shakes and it still has minimum impact on anything. Any ideas?

granola bars, nuts, peanut butter. and I also play football and for football it's never a bad idea and gain a few pounds lifting weights. just don't eat fast foods all day to gain weight for obvious reasons.

It's football. Tons of different positions to try out for. Don't worry about getting heavy as long as you're fit. Also you'll probably gain weight back in the fall.

I don't think kids can gain great weight unless they power lift or eat unhealthily since their body growth hasn't leveled off.

No its not fat trust me, I have been lifting any where's from 3-5 days a week. But since my conditioning and agility program has been so intense, I am still losing weight. This sucks for me as a lineman. I am one of the strongest for my size, but also the smallest (weight).

you gotta up your calorie intake, pure and simple

This is tough to do because when you are in your teens, 4000+ calories a day is NOTHING if you are physically active.

I know I watched a video about Rich Froning (Crossfit Champion), he does 5+ workouts a day. And he starts his day by eating a bowl of peanut butter and jelly mixed together. Sugar, protein, go

Your metabolism is faster than it'll ever be, plus you are more active than you will ever be, eating less than you'll ever eat

Honestly, just slowly raise your calorie intake till you start to take on weight again. Don't do anything radical, and don't do anything crazy that could damage your body (like eating 4 pounds of fried chicken each night). You'll have the rest of your life to stare at the spare tire around your waist when this all goes away, enjoy the metabolism while you have it

How old are you? It is pretty much impossible to gain mass until maybe 15-16.

Thanks Mike that was really helpful. I have been looking into what I eat and how much to eat to make sure I am getting enough calories and carbs but this does get hard at times especially when school starts. Gaining weight isn't neccisarily my goal, although it would be nice. I just want to make sure that I'm not loosing more weight. I think after some time I will be able to have a diet that can keep up with my calorie output and will eventually help me out.

Hey man im not trying to be mean, but do you want to gain weight or MAINTAIN weight? Because if your trying to gain drink 1 gram of protein per pound of bodyweight. Which will be atleast 3 protein shakes a day for you im guessing. also, eat a LOT of good carbs like oats and grains, not white bread. Peanut butter too!!!!!! cheers!

Globemasta: I see that you might have been confused about what I said. At my age, it is hard to actually put on and keep weight so I want to at least want to be able to keep the weight I have. I have been watching my diet for good foods so we will just have to see what happens!

Dude, just do what mike said. Raise your calorie intake and find out what is the best for you. i mean start by eating around 3000 calories if you are losing weight then raise your calories by 100 and keep going until you arent losing weight

Creatine retains water, and if he is in a situation where he's outside in the heat all geared up, he can die.

Do NOT take creatine if you are starting football. You WILL get hurt.

Creatine is safe when used safely.

You're not your job. You're not how much money you have in the bank. You're not the car you drive. You're not the contents of your wallet. You're not your fucking khakis. You're the all-singing, all-dancing crap of the world.

Your argument is a blanket statement saying that the OP could die, or be injured in some way. This is a very alarmist and hyperbolic attitude. Creatine is one of the most commonly used supplements in the world simply due to the fact that it is safe and well researched.

To the OP, you are right, 13 is to young to worry about supplements of any kind. Eat healthy, work hard, and worry more about your skills as a player than what a scale tells you.

You're not your job. You're not how much money you have in the bank. You're not the car you drive. You're not the contents of your wallet. You're not your fucking khakis. You're the all-singing, all-dancing crap of the world.

Youre talking rubbish, i know 20+ rugby players including myself that take creatine and have yet to fall down dead on the field. Yes creatine retains water but its not going to harm you, trust me. Just because creatine is reativly new to the supplement scene everyone is very skeptical, there is yet to be a study that proves creatine is detremental to health, unlike a lot of people on this site im a fuly qualified level 3 personal trainer and nutritionist, not a dietician which is a made up title that means nothing.

Alright I did more research and turns out that the only negative effect found was just exhaustion. Another was the lack of sweat. The people did increase in mass do to water retention, but there were no fatal adverse effects.


I'm just skeptical on this stuff because I live in a hot and humid area. It can get up to 105 degrees and when you're wearing a bunch of padding it takes it's toll when you don't sweat to cool off.

Haven't heard of exhaustion or lack of sweat being caused by creatine. I am not saying that you are wrong, but I am curious where you read that?

I popped on WebMD and a few health sites and most of the side effects were cramping and if you were to over-exert you might rip your muscles. They also recommend drinking more water.

They also do not recommend taking it when you're under 18 because it has not been tested on teens.

like mike said its all about the calories if you ever get to the point where you are so sick of food and eating that you can't take it anymore than i would consider investing in a weight gainer shake so you can drink some of your calories. But if not i would just save some money, peanut butter is way cheaper
