Okay, so last week I went to the doctors I am beginning to think that he is just a tad bit unprofessional but oh well. Anyways, he said due to the genetics of my family and my physical structure the only way I could loose weight is to quite literally starve myself. Alright, bummer, but no big deal.

Until last night when my coach yelled at me and told me that if I wanted him to put me into the varsity boat this spring again (I was in it last year) that I'd have to loose weight. This presents a pickle of a problem.

I've tried every fad diet out there, yes including *gasp* the atkins diet. I've done weight watchers. I've eaten by the food pyramid. I've eaten nothing. I've eaten whatever I want, I've eaten nothing but salads minus the dressing.

I excersize 6 days a week for two hours. I've got one of the fastest times on my team, yet he still wants me to loose wieght and become a stick.

It's in this sense that I think my doctor is right. And I'm not fat, I'm proportional -- but I'm not skinny (obviously if you've seen my pics) either.


But hellp!!!! Is there anything that's worked for you guys other than hardcore drugs? (I was offered crack, cocaine, and heroin to loose weight -- I didn't think that was a great idea).

Please, help. Suggestions? Comments? Anyone?

Hmm, that is quite a pickle. Though I should tell you that the atkins diet has been prooven to cause weight gain, and the pirymid thing has been proven wrong as well (hince the lo carb craze). What type of exersize do you do?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it sounds like you are a fit person, and that your current weight is healthy and normal to you. Have you thought of trying excersises that could make you leaner in appearance, mebe the type of excersise you do is quite body-buildery? I dunno, that's just a guess.

What is a varcity boat? -Some kind of boat race?

Also, what's the point in starving yourself, you won't be taking in carbs or protien, vitamins and all the other stuff a body should be fed to run on. Do you think there is a posibility that sole motivation for your coach telling you that you need to loose weight because s/he favorable of skinny people?

Sorry I cannot offer up any suggestioins, I hope you find what your looking for though.

I row for my school's crew team. The varsity boat is the top/best boat on the team. As for my coach favoring skinny people? It wouldn't surprise me, the one other slightly larger girl got yelled at by him over the summer and she's lost a lot of weight.

Starving yourself won't work. Your body will go into survival mode and the second you eat anything again you'll put on more weight than you started with.

You probably already know that but it's really not a good idea to starve yourself.

That's what I was thinking. I know that I have to do a certin type of exersize to stay fit without adding to the bulkyness of my frame.

Beat him in the head with an oar. That's what I'd do. But you look fine. I say have your doctor call your coach or vice versa and let the two dopes talk it out themselves.

Sometimes registered dieticians or specific athletics doctors/therapists know more about body types and body shaping through exercise and diet that just coaches and family doctors. Most universities have professional athletic doctors on staff who are trained specifically in such issues. If you're still in high school and not on a university team, perhaps your coach could pull some strings and help you get an appointment with a specialist or someone on the university/college athletic health team somehow.

If you decide to see a dietician, you should know that there's a difference between "nutritionists" and "dieticians." Dieticians have gone to university and have a degree, while anyone with no training at all can call themselves an nutritionist, or at least I think that's how it works in Canada. Don't know about the US.

If you're happy with the way you look/feel, then you shouldn't try doing anything to please these people.
If you feel that you would be happier with yourself if you lost weight, then you should go see a specialist as suggested above.
I know that I tried a lot of fad diets for a long time, but they never worked for me. Eventually I found a way to lose weight and I lost 30 pounds and am still losing- but I changed my lifestyle. I don't starve myself, I eat two very small meals a day, and one "regular" meal. I exercise daily, alternating between cardio and weight lifting. I don't think you can truly lose weight by trying some crash diet, at least not lose it and keep it off. If you want to change what your body is like, you have to change the way you live.
However, you sound like you're in good physical condition, and if you're the fastest person on the team, it is discriminating against you to not put you on the team. If you think this is the case, I'm sure there is someone you can complain to and tell them that you feel you are being discriminated against because of your weight.
Good luck!

From the photos I've seen there is aboslutley nothing wrong with your weight at all.

A fair portion of the weight that you have is probably lean muscle, judging by the amount of exercise that you do.

SquirrelIntherain (whose username I will probably abbreviate if I ever need to type it again) is right that the way to change shape isn't through any sort of fad, it's through lifestyle alteration. It is possible that it's the type of exercise that you are doing that is causing some of the 'problem' (although as I said before, I don't see this really as a problem... I guess it's more of a challenge... Maybe a puzzle... Or something like that).

I don't know if you've given it a look, but there's a healthy eating book called the GI diet which has lots of very sound nutritional advice. I'm not sure if it would help though because it's designed to help you reach and maintain your ideal healthy weight, which seems to be where you are at the moment!

Maybe try going for a more body-sculpting type of exercise, yoga or Pilates for example?

OK I'm not really one to give diet advice but I would say that your coach putting this much pressure on you should be bought to the attention of your school administration. If they are so focussed on winning (by having the lightest boat I assume) that they are not concerned with the health of the student then they should be seriously reprimanded. You are not fat. You are a healthy person with an excellent exercise program. If this coach ahs gotten you so worried about your weight that you have tried starving yourself then he needs to have his b***locks removed. Talk to the other girl you said he "suggested" loose weight and speak to someone at school.

Of course I could just be ranting and this may not be the right course to take but I would think about it if nothing else

Yeah, I normally do that. I eat a small breakfast a large lunch (a cup of soup and a tunafish sandwhich on rye) and a small dinner. The excersize thing, I do the same with the alternating (actually our coach has us do the same). And thanks for the compliment but I'm one of the fastest, not THE fastest. I think I'm third....
Anyways thanks for the really good suggestions! smile.gif

I really wouldn't place so much emphasis on this but crew is my ticket into Columbia University in NYC. My grades are pretty good, but the coach told me if I continue to do well in crew and she recruits me she could get me in. And I really love the college. Anyways..... thanks so much everyone smile.gif I'll take all your suggestions into consideration.

Its suggested that humans should eat more like what Hampsters do, small bites of healthy food but regularly thoughout the day. Perhaps have a hour or so gap between your soup and tuna sandwich? I can't remember why it helps for weight loss/dieting but I remember it being suggested as a way.

I've looked at the photos of you and I agree with Mata, you look perfectly fine. I really think that this is the coach's problem and putting such a burden on you he should be brought to the school's attention.

There is one main one that I know of by Rick Gallop,

http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/0...9717798-9814220

I'm sure that there are versions available in the US too. It seems like a pretty sensible diet that makes sure that you are eating enough calories to keep you running all the time, and it doesn't fall prey to odd theories about the body either (such as Atkins, no offence intended).

I know it's an odd suggestion, but how about relaxing a bit? It sounds like you're pushing yourself really hard, and you can still get a very long way in life and be relaxed! I'm glad to hear that you've got Pilates classes at your school. They're not really mediatative like yoga, but they're certainly less hardcore than an hour at the gym.

Relax! There is a solution here, and that is too just let things slide a little. Don't be so concerned about this. Your mental wellbeing is more important than anything e;se, because that is what keeps you happy. Remember that you are a healthy, happy person and you're on the right line to wherever you should be.

Hit your coach with something large. i prefer removing his thick skull from his head and using that to beat his still-living body with it.
Last time i checked, coaches were there to provide words of encouragement, and boost self-esteem to help the person achieve.
Yeah, i know that somewimes there are weight reqs, but how about he offers up a few suggestions, or gives you some words of encouragement?
Bah. i'm tall, (5'11) and lean, but i weigh 144 lbs. (I've been vegetarian for 6 months, so i'm quite bony)
but i feel huge because i can never seem to find a boy that can lift me and, well, 'sweep me off my feet' (not many guys are that much taller than me), and that makes me really sad sometimes...
so any person who intentionally tries to force upon you a negative body image should be shot.

because if it is your body type, it's like somebody telling me to make myself shorter.

Your coach is NOT a very good coach. It's his job to encourage you to do your best regardless of your size or whatnot, not to tell you to be a stick.

If nothing seems to work, maybe it's not exactly your fault...it might just be the way you are. Whatever you do, do not starve yourself. Your body will think it's being starved, metabolism will slow, and that won't help. Just be comfortable, and be the best you can be. wink.gif

Mata, Teapot, I've tried and tried to tell her that she's beautiful the way she is, but she's as stubborn as I am.

Being a wrestler, we used goofy little diets to keep ourselves on weights (and it was hard). We did protein shakes, rice & ice diets, low carb ("DUDE! DON'T EAT THE BREAD! YOU'RE WRESTLING TOMORROW!"). The difference is that we had to maintain our weight to wrestle (and that was hard). My baby doesn't; her coach is just being a prick. That's what bugs me.

Well, in rowing if you get your weight down but you can keep the same scores then technically you're faster. The lower the weight and the lower the score the faster you become. If person a weighs 160 lbs and person b wieghs 190 yet they both pull a 7 min and 40 second 2k (k as in kilometers) person a wins the seat race.

I don't think I understand; if you're not overweight, why are you trying to lose weight?
It's been mentioned before: muscle weighs more than fat. If you're muscular, your body will be denser.

*

So, by the sounds of things, you're interested in losing weight to improve your rowing performance, not for cosmetic reasons, right?

That's a good thing for starters. Happy on the inside = happy on the outside.

As someone quite rightly pointed out, if you're already in super-great condition, most of the weight is probably muscle. If you lose any of that weight, then you're losing the muscle that's going to be powering your stroke. There's going to be an an optimum weight that will give you the best power-to-weight ratio. It's going to be different for every person, depending on their body shape, metabolism, height, and natural musculature.

It's possible that you're at that optimum weight right now. It's possible that you're not. The thing to remember is that it's not about losing as much weight as possible, it's about getting as close to that optimum point as possible.

Unfortunately, I've got no idea how to go about figuring out what that sweet spot is, other than gaining a bit of weight, doing some kind of a trial, then losing some and repeating the the same trial and comparing results. Repeat ad infinitum and home in on your optimum training weight. Sounds too much like hard work to me.

Another point to bear in mind is that if your weight seems pretty stable, no matter what you do, that's an indication that your body is in a good, healthy, homeostatic condition. Your weight is what it is because your body figures that that's the shape it needs to be for what you put it through.

This is true, I'm not skinny. Actually I'm rather thick. Because of crews my thighs also are rather large. Which makes for a pain in the butt when you go to buy jeans and the waist is too big but the legs fit just right.

Anyways, there is some fat left to loose, but yes I know most of it is muscle. I know this because my body is completely porportional I took my mesurements the other day. (44 bust, 33 waist, and 44 hips)

Still, nonetheless, my coach wants me to loose weight. He's quite insistent on it. My aunt (who is a medical assistant) spoke to the doctor she works with, they are putting me on a trial diet pill. To do this though I have to go in weekly for blood work and tests to make sure that everything goes right. Really all I should loose safely is 20 lbs at the most. Anything beyond that and I'd be a stick

I think that there are these pills that give you a quick metabolism... Sp I guess you just have to eat healthily and then you become skinny... wow.. I want to try that.. anyway.. I think that your coach is being a bit unfair and if you are happy with your body image you should tell him where to go.

Diet pills are usually amphetamine-based. So, yes, they will give you a quick metabolism becuase you'll be speeding you nuts off. And it'll supress your appetite too. And it'll make you want to dance. And talk utter rubbish for hours on end. And grind your teeth.

All in all, I'd be wary of them - approach them with an open mind, but if you don't like the side-effects, bin them.

Well, in rowing if you get your weight down but you can keep the same scores then technically you're faster. The lower the weight and the lower the score the faster you become. If person a weighs 160 lbs and person b wieghs 190 yet they both pull a 7 min and 40 second 2k (k as in kilometers) person a wins the seat race.

This makes no sense to me. blink.gif I'd think that if it were going to matter, you'd be considered faster if you were heavier, because you'd be doing more work (moving more weight).
