How do i gain weight
InstagramInstagram.com/umnicola I started to hate my body in middle school. I'd never really focused on how small I was until a boy I liked in the sixth grade told me I was too skinny. From that point on, I was hugely insecure about my thin body. High school was the worst. I played basketball, and in addition to practice and games, my dad built a court in my backyard and a trainer would come over and we’d do tons of cardio and drills. I wanted to quit the sport so bad so I could gain weight. I had no boobs, no booty, and at 5’ 9", I felt like I looked like a walking stick.

I would wear thick leggings—sometimes three pairs—underneath my pants, jeans, or shorts. That continued into college. I quit basketball going into college, but I developed a really weird … [Read more...] about ‘I Gained 22 Pounds And Feel Confident For The First Time In 13 Years’
Gabby Male By Gabby Male as told to Rachael Schultz Mar 6, 2018 My whole life I had coaches, parents, and teammates who made me attend soccer practice and stay active. When I finished high school and all that ended, I realized that to keep it up, I’d have to start motivating myself.Despite being active, I had never really had a positive body image, so heading into my freshman year of college, I thought, “This is my chance. I can work toward my dream body”—which was, of course, to be thin. I was 146 pounds. So the summer before my freshman year, I started piling on the cardio. Occasionally, I’d do very light weights, but I didn’t want to get bulky. And I lost weight really fast. In just four months, I had dropped down to 118 pounds. But suddenly, 118 didn’t feel low enough. Just as quickly as I had shed the pounds, I became full-blown obsessed with counting calories, and losing more and more weight. I was working out twice a day … [Read more...] about ‘I Gained 24 Pounds Of Muscle And Totally Transformed My Relationship With Food’
Emotional eating is a pattern of eating where people use food to help them deal with stressful situations. Many people experience emotional eating at one time or another. It could show itself as eating a bag of chips when bored or eating a chocolate bar after a difficult day at work. However, when emotional eating happens frequently or becomes the main way a person deals with their emotions, then their life, health, happiness, and weight can be negatively affected. Emotions, such as stress, are not the only triggers for emotional eating. Other common triggers that people report include: Boredom: Being bored or having nothing to do is a common emotional eating trigger.

Habits: These are often driven by nostalgia or things that happened in a person's childhood. An example might be, having ice cream after a good report card or baking cookies with a … [Read more...] about How do I stop stress eating?
Calories are those little units of energy we consume whenever we eat, well, anything. And they are arguably the most talked-about part of any weight-loss journey.The general rule is that if you eat more calories than you use, you’ll gain weight. And if you take in fewer calories than you use, you’ll lose weight. And if those numbers are more or less even, your weight will stay about the same. It seems simple, but the number of calories you need to lose weight, maintain weight, or gain weight from lean muscle depends on your activity levels, body size, hormones, sleep, and more, explains registered dietitian Wesley Delbridge, R.D., a spokesman for the Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics. So figuring out how many calories you need per day can be crazy-complicated.And, it's also important to remember that, when it comes to cutting calories for weight loss, lower is not always better. According to the American College of Sports Medicine, your calories should never … [Read more...] about How Many Calories Do I Need To Lose Weight?
