I was not unhealthy, and actually needed to lose fat from my body then. Even growing children can still use the BMI chart as something to use as a general guideline. Without seeing pictures of him, I would hate to guess, but no, I really don't think his weight is anywhere near an unhealthy stage. Especially since he seems to be very active.

    He logged in at 5:00 pm last night, and that's the last time. I don't know if going to the doctor "after school" would mean before or after that time. If he's in NY, I guess we'll have to wait until Monday.

    Posting from the Ipod. = ) I am in NY.


    Just woke up, the doctor has a few thoughts and ran some blood tests. He said I should try to start increasing my daily intake up to about 1500. He has a feeling that my body just processes exceptionally efficiently, which is why though I never overate and exercised regularly I gained weight during my childhood.

    Yesterday I managed to get 1600 calories in! Just eating slowly all day.

    He also prescribed me some vitamins to take as the labs will take a few days and he just wants to make sure. He said my all my vitals were in excellent range, and I didn't have any of the signs of an illness. If all my labs come back in a positive range he is just going to recommend I eat 1500 calories and that my body just processes food very efficiently.

    Just wanted to add that i'm not a believer in a vegeterian diet. I think most people eat FAR too much meat, but so far all the people I know who eat vegetarian have some health issues. All of them. If it's by choice, i'd suggest slipping in some small amount of meat now and then into your otherwise vegetarian diet. Humans seem like they were sort've evolved to eat mostly vegetables with supplements of animal foods here and there; some of the cultures in other parts of the world that pride themselves on vegetarianism develop health issues when they arrive in places where there aren't things like bugs occasionally hiding in the rice. Just that tiny bit is enough, and when their diet actually does go pure, they go downhill.

    My sister is vegetarian, and gave her 3 boys the choice of whether they want to eat meat or not.

    One eats a little meat, one is vegetarian, and one is vegan. They have never even had a cold, although the youngest got mumps. The oldest is 16, the middle one is 14 and the youngest is 6. They are all gorgeous in a really healthy sort of way, with bright, clear eyes. They're all mentally well adjusted, with the oldest one in college and the younger one taking college classes. My sister is a nutritionist, though, so she really knows what she's doing when it comes to food, and she spends a fortune on organic products and has moved to a completely raw diet in the past few years. It takes a lot of organization to eat like that.

    Anyway, I'm just presenting a counterpoint. I'm not vegetarian, although I was for a couple years after seeing a meat plant documentary. Then one day, I was walking by a steak house, and my knees went weak. I have to say, though, that for whatever reason, that period of vegetarian eating was the period in my life where I felt most healthy.

    I am not wanting to hijack this thread, but I am not a vegetarian and I have just started reading more about it. But, if you pay attention to what you are eating and making sure you have enough of everything you could easily be extremely healthy being a vegetarian, and not have the problems that a very large percentage of the United States is and that is overweight, obese, and have many, many health problems. There is also a book "The China Study" that shows that and much more. I have reduced my intake of meat, but I am not there yet.

    Is it me or does this advice not make sense. 1600 calories does not seem like a whole lot for someone who is as active as you are. I have never heard of someone "processing food very efficiently." If your labs come back normal and your problems still continue I would suggest seeing a specialist and getting and MRI.

    How is your stress level? A friend of mine has a lot of stomach issues and he stresses himself out a lot. Are you ever exercising? Could your body need a few days break from it?

    I think this is a good thread for all of us to remind ourselves to listen to our bodies.
