My son, has always been a bigger kid but never really fat until now. He joined the school swim team 2 years ago, and now the weight is just coming on. At 6 foot 4, its easy for him to disguise his eating as necessary, but what once used to be maybe just a soft belly, has turned into one that really sticks out. He started this year at 170, but has ballooned to 200 and im scared that he will only get bigger.

Reply from Felix, Child's Age 16 - 11/12/19 - IP#: 172.58.229.xxx Hi Zach, if your son is 6’4 and 200, technically he is not even overweight. I’m sure he looks different since he was probably skinnier before, but he is still healthy in terms of weight. At this stage I would focus on healthier eating since he is exercising with the swim team.
