    Ok, so I have a very fast metabolism,

    no matter how much I eat, I will feel like I'm starving 30 minutes later, it's hard to keep weight on, I'm 5'3 and 110 pounds. I've pretty much always been around that weight give or take 5 pounds, but wore a size 3, now the past half year, I wear a 0/1 and look way smaller, I...

    It's strange to me when a girl complains to me

    about how little she can eat to avoid getting fat. I can eat a large pizza by myself and be hungry in another 2 hours with no weight gain. People think I'm inhuman and always ask what the hell is wrong with me. The only problem is that if I have my meals portioned by someone...

    Quicksilver Metabolism

    I can eat and eat, but never gain weight! I hate the way I am. I look healthy but am just too thin for my taste. I want some breasts and hips. *sigh*

    My Metabolism Is Confused

    Right now, if I eat more, I lose weight. If I eat less, I gain weight. I'm not sure whether I should be eating more or less, and I know my metabolism is to blame for this. The way mine seems to work is odd. If I eat any less than usual, I'll drop weight unusually fast. I can...

    Normally this is a good thing,

    but not this week. Earlier this week I think I had some bad tuna fish and didn't feel well for about 3 days. So I didn't feel like eating so much. By yesterday, I had lost 5 pounds without trying. It will likely take me 2 weeks or so to gain that back (yes, I really do want...

    I'm So Frustrated

    I have always been small, and I always liked that. Up until a few months ago I ate constantly and didn't really gain anything. Maybe a few pounds, but then it would go away really fast. I'm a little above 5'4", and for like the last 4 years have weighed around 127. Again, give or...

    Not All a Blessing

    I don't suppose there is much sympathy out there for someone complaining about a metabolism which is too fast. I am a very athletic college girl with an extremely fast metabolism and being out of the ordinary is not always fun. I have had a fast metabolism my whole life, even...

    Purposely eating a bunch of food in front of

    others so they don't tell me 'oh your so skinny, go eat a burger'.....uh seriously though, overweight people wouldn't want me to tell them to stop eating, so don't tell skinny people they need to eat.

    It's Too Fast

    This explains why I have to eat twice as much as everyone else to maintain a healthy BMI and why I have to go to the store so much. lol

    The Skinny On a Certain Pet Peeve

    There's something that has irritated me ever since I was 5 years old and lost my baby fat. It's when people make a comment about my body size/thinness/weight. Some examples of such comments that I've actually received: 1. "Do you eat?" 2. "You are so SKINNY...

    Comes with being an ectomorph.

    I've eaten a whole cake, a bunch of cookies - nothin. No weight. My teen sister is like this too, but she is underweight. Having fast metabolism isn't that great.

    A Little Sensitivity Please

    I have always been slender.  I am now thirty, and keep hearing that my metabolism will run out.  I may regret it later, but as of now, I can't wait for that day. "I remember when I was that skinny."  "Do you ever eat anything?"  "What's your secret?" ...
