weight loss


Question by  CabaansMommy2009 (3)

Why am I losing a lot of weight but eating a lot everyday?

I am 20 years old and 5'3" but I weigh 95 lbs. I eat a lot everyday and maintain a decent amount of exercise, but it seems like whenever I weigh myself I have lost weight instead of gaining weight like a normal person. What could be wrong with me?

Some serious medical conditions can cause dramatic weight loss regardless of how much you eat. My first thoughts would be to check for digestive disorders that would prevent absorption of nutrition, such as celiac or crohn's disease. Another possibility is an over-active thyroid gland.

Nothing is wrong with you. You just have a high metabolism. Try eating more foods that are high in protein and including plenty of good carbs in your diet.

Just because you are eating a lot, doesn't mean that you should gain weight, as perhaps you are eating foods which are low in fat and calories, and healthy for you. In addition, if you are burning off more calories than you are putting into your body, this could also explain it.

I do believe eating at least every two hours can make your metabolism to race if you're eating healthy. Now, if you're eating unhealthy you MUST see a DOCTOR! asap!

At your age, there is probably nothing wrong with you. You just may have a fast metabolism which enables you to burn calories quickly on a daily basis.
