Before you post a reply saying that your child is overweight or that you want them to lose weight, please first check our Weight Calculator. If the calculator says that your child is healthy weight, please do not post a message saying that they are overweight or that you want them to lose weight.  This offends the kids who really are overweight.  Thanks a lot.

From Charles, child's age 16

Recently my son Zach has been putting on a good amount of weight. He had started lifting in 9th grade and was decently heavy, but it was nearly all muscle. His weight didn't change for a year, but now I've noticed that a decent layer of fat has been building up on him. His eating habits at home haven't changed and we all eat pretty healthy. He started at around 175, but now hes approaching 195. He plays water polo and still goes to the gym, though a little less often than before. But he doesn't seem to know that hes really getting bigger, his shirts that once fit good, now show his belly, and his speedos at polo are looking really tight. Please help
