Hi megan!

Most meats have protein, iron and fat. Good stuff (even fat is okay, long as you don't have too much of it, particularly cholesterol and saturated fat -- and you should really have 0 trans fats in your diet), mostly. One issue a lot of people have with meat is portions. Another can be how it's prepared, as too much salt or things that have been really burned aren't so great for you.

Everything in moderation. Good to see that you're curious about this.

@megancoleman08,
It's very difficult.

I started off at 346. I now weigh 231 and am still losing. I don't think I lost 5 lbs. in one week more than maybe one time. Trust me, you don't want to be doing that -- you'd just be miserable and would not keep it off. If, instead, you try for 10 lbs. in 6 months by changing your lifestyle -- eating less junk, exercising more, making a few of your meals -- not only will you be a lot happier doing it, you should be able to keep it off.

The basic realities are the same for women and girls as for men and boys. Muscle tissue burns fat even just sitting around. Worry less about dieting and more about turning some of the fat into muscle, and you'll be ahead of the game. Find some sort of an old fashioned weightlifting gym and join it. In the mid Atlantic region at least that's usually Golds. Places like Ballies which specialize in treadmills are for people who want to delude themselves into believing they're exercising.

@megancoleman08,
Marilyn Monroe wasn't really big or overly strong to my knowledge.

The way to being a screen star is usually rocky. I saw an interview with her once and she said that she spent the first five or six years working in three-stooges type movies, pie fights, getting thrown out a window into a pool and all sorts of stuff like that, she said it was amazing she'd survived it.

People I talk to about being rock and roll stars say the same thing more or less, and that even for the people whose names are up in lights it's usually a number of years before they ever start doing any better than breaking even as far as money, and that it's good to get out of it not too long after your 30'th birthday.

,all they say is your too big too be good ....


One thing you should understand about being big and which you will not learn in highschool.....

You will spend your entire life dealing with a thing called the square/cube problem, meaning that you will NEVER have the power/weight ratio which smaller people sometimes have, no matter what you do. You simply have to deal with it.

What the s/c problem means is that weight is proportional to volume, which is a cubed figure, while strength is basically proportional to cross section of bone and muscle, which is a squared figure, and every other measure of efficiency is similararly proportional to some other sort of squared figure.

That means that if you were to double your physical dimensions, you'd have a factor of two which would get figured three times for volume and hence weight (width * breadth * height) but only twice for cross section of muscle and bone which behaves like the pi*r-squared thing from geometry; in other words, you'd be eight times heavier and only four times stronger. You'd have cut your power to weight ratio in half.

That is basically why you don't see people much over 150 lbs or thereabouts doing gymnastics.

Particularly in the case of girls and women you need to be proportionally stronger than your smaller comrades just to compete on an equal basis.

@megancoleman08,
Megan, please do not give your contact information to any
on-line site, especially your cell number. People will sell your number to others and you will get all kinds of calls from bad and annoying people.

If you want to be in show business you need to have a legitimate manager and only your parents can arrange that because of your age. If you want to be an actress you should take acting classes or join a drama group at school. If you want to sing you need to work with a music coach. If you want to be a model, in two years when you are 16, you need for your mom or dad to take very simple digital pictures of you just being yourself. You can send the pictures to legitimate, licensed agencies that your parents can check out. Your body is still in the growing stage and modeling agencies will not be interested until you are more mature physically. You need to be out of this awkward stage before they will even consider you.

I understand your parents are pushing you to be an athlete and you can benefit from the training. Sports will make your stronger, leaner and more graceful - all good traits for what your really want to do. You asked on your other thread about going to the gym 5 days. I think this great and you should take any class you enjoy. They will help you obtain a better, healthier body.

One other thing - you are speaking with grown-ups here and you need to communicate with us like you do with your teachers in school. It is very difficult to read what you write because you do not use standard puncuation. It does not have to be perfect, but we need you to take the time and put in things like periods. It's another thing people will judge you for in life.

"rocky" means difficult.

I don't think gunga is reading your posts very carefully or he would not be going on the way he is about square cubes and such. It's not an issue for what you want to do.

@holister hottie,
When i was 12 I was around 140 pounds. I lost 50 pounds the summer I turned 13. My advice for you is to have the drive. You have to push yourself outside your comfort zone. Excersize does wonders! start out easy. As far as what you eat.... i started watching carbs. makes changes. no fast food no fried food and no fun food ( ice cream and chocolate). Switch to whole grain or multi grain breads. one thing i started doing was easting scrambled egg whites when ever i got hungry because they are virtually all protein. Hope this helps!
