I Want To Maintain My Weight. How Should I Do It?

Find your ideal maintenance calorie in take for the day then multiply by 7. This is your calorie intake for the week. If you eat less then that for the week then you will not put on the weight. You are still growing so do not worry. By controlling weekly intake you can go to a party and eat that day but you have chance make it up that week or next week.

Go on Internet or to library and find some abdominal exercises, and do them religiously every day they always work and you can see the changes in 4 weeks for sure. Make sure to include stretches to take care of you height too.

Since you have some question about the height, I am including my answer about increasing height.


Best Answer - Chosen by Asker

Try to look taller, the enclosed article has few tips to do just that.

But read all the articles and reevaluate the situation and get really fit too, surf the sites and get the correct info and get fit, by following your own custom made program to fit your life style.


Tip to look thin is same as looking taller.


Increasing the Height



In rare cases, you can increase the height up to age 30.

Cycling is good exercise and fun too.

You need to adjust the seat so that when you paddle from seating position you will actually stretch your legs, it is a difficult position but doable. For safety you need to be on track and not in traffic, safety first.

The FEW things I did at least helped me.


Not just playing in water, but serious laps type swimming, do not try to beat the clock but steady full strokes swimming. Remember slow and steady wins the race.

Stretching exercises on floor.

Find them on line.

Chin ups.

Full stretch type.

Swinging from a rope.

Full stretch climbing.

In other words do things that require stretching.



In the morning after good night sleep every one is about 1/2 inch to 1 inch taller. This is because the soft tissue between the bones recovers during the time when there is no weight on them.

Older people loose height due to bone loss. I was 5', 7'' I am only 5', 5".

Issue of Genes:

You know only the active genes but genes can stay dormant for generations.

I believe that every one has some tall height genes, dormant or active; I again believe that certain exercises can activate those.

Again Swimming:

You will start out with half a lap and build up day by day, half a lap at a time. Then you will swim non stop for 1/2 an hour.

The speed is not important but you must use various strokes and do them correctly, completely, slowly and perfectly. This way you will have full stretch, and its benefit.

Eating healthy foods and taking rest as specially sleeping soundly at night is very important. Most people need 8 hours of good sound sleep per night, some need more and few get by with 4 hours only.

In the mean time use high hills and take advantage of hair-do, wardrobe can do wonders too; vertical striped clothing can create a taller look for most people.


Under strict supervision of a doctor they do wonders but the side effects are delayed and unpredictable so doctors do not like to use them.

Surgical Procedures:

There are surgical procedures but most doctors will not do them till the person is 30 years or so. They also have to be very short.


Tips for Loosing Weight



You must count calories and at least in initial stages write down what you are going to eat and when then stay on that list. Your total calories for the week must not exceed, 1500 x 7 = 10,500 calories this will give you leave way to indulge at special occasions like wedding and parties, but you must write down what you eat and account for the calories latter and adjust the total intake next week.

Please read my article on this subject and follow them.

While at it build your body too, while reducing by doing body parts specific exercises.

If you are not too old, then best way to reduce your weight is to increase your height.

Vegetarians have a big advantage, in loosing weight, it cost less and they can satisfy the hunger more easily, some vegetables have only a few calories per pound, so they can fill themselves up with it before enjoying each meal, and never go hungry.

Most people should take one a day water soluble multi-vitamins when on this program; they can be purchased at the pharmacy near you. http://www.scientificpsychic.com/fitness... http://www.halls.md/ideal-weight/body.ht... http://www.halls.md/body-mass-index/bmi....

Control your diet, walk for 30 minutes in the morning and do yoga for 30 minutes a day. Your weight will be under control and your tummy will be inside.
