He Needs a Feed Bag

My 13 year old weighs 75 pounds... maybe 80.

We suspect he ate over 3000 calories today. I'm not kidding. It's two hours before he goes to bed, and I suspect he'll eat more. Typically around 10:00 he eats a second dinner.

I'm just astounded... I can't figure out where its going.

It must be going to his hands...

When boys are that age, just eating works up an appetite. I was a big eater but stayed skinny as a rail until my late 20's. Sigh! I wish I could still eat that much and not get fat. Just wait until all three boys are teenagers. Better get a bigger refrigerator.

I hear ya- my boys were the same. Right now, Boy is home from college for the holiday- I cannot keep food in this house. Holy crap!
6'3, weighs about 160. Damn I wish I had his metabolism!

And yeah- Boy ate a lot, even at 13...which is about when he hit his growth spurt- grew 6" in four months.

Good luck!
