Weight Loss Issues

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hello, I am 18yrs old and am a highly active farmer, I have a fairly difficult time to put weight on, or more so to keep a stable weight - something which sounds great since I can eat anything without the ramifications but isnt all great. Pretty much for as long as I remember, I've always hovered around the 6-7 stone weight. In school holidays I would go away and put 2 stone on, but within weeks for that to have disappeared. My usual breakfast is over 1300kcal alone with my overall daily intake in excess of 3500-4200kcal which compared to your average daily recommended kcal intake is insane. I was wondering if anybody would have any suggestions on what this cause this could be, being slim and being able to eat anything does run in the family however no matter how much I eat, I just dont seem to put or keep weight on. With this diet, I lost 2-3kg within a week or two when more manual labour work has started to come about, however surely this is far too many kcal to be consuming daily?? I've had blood tests in the past, not related to weight issues however were bought up but nothing was found (if they did look for weight issues). Thanks
