Dear Dish-It, I Can't Stop Eating!

Dear Dish-It,

Normally I don't eat that much, but lately I've been craving food and stuffing myself like a horse. I don't want to gain weight because this is a situation I want to get out of. It's so weird because this is sooo not normal for me. Any tips on good exercises that would be helpful?

Dear xox_candygirl_xox,

Don't freak out just yet about your new eating patterns. Right now your body is going through some massive changes and because it's working so hard, it requires a lot more fuel than before. If you're hungry, you should eat because your body needs those calories to keep it functioning properly. Weight gain shouldn't be too much of a concern for you as long as you remember to eat healthy and keep up with regular exercise - you're supposed to get at least 30 minutes of activity in a day. When you're craving a snack, reach for some carrot and celery sticks or throw together some homemade trail mix and avoid munching down on pizza pockets and guzzling pop. This way, your body will get the necessary nutrients it needs and you will stay trim and healthy. Once you've made your way through puberty (which could take a few years!), your appetite will most likely get back to normal.

    I'll try to be as simple as possible. You should really keep an eye him.I'm not telling you to stalk him in a weird creepy way,I'm just telling you to watch him so you can learn and do things he would like people to do.Act nice towards him,and try not to make it awkward.Remember,you should always learn his interests.If so,you can talk about them,thus making it easy what to speak about.If you don't feel comfortable with just telling him you have a crush on him,or feel nervous,don't do it.Wait.People with patience always get the best fruit.If you feel like your friend might be better for him,let it be.You might get another person instead. I know it's not that easy to just let go of your feelings,so there is another way.A way kinda using force,you might say.You'll have to convince your crush to let go of your friend somehow WITHOUT letting her know that you were the cause of all of this,or you can convince your friend to let your crush go.It's hard to do so,but I guess there might be no other choice,if you would look from the perspective I'm looking from.

    Go for him, make a nice situation to understand what he feels about you, if he loves you and you are sure about him so go for him and dont lose him . Though I think such a friendship for you is too soon and it will be broken but it is worth trying .Soory, if I speak frankly , it is just my opinion nothing more.
