munch on celery or baby carrots

Get a piece of fruit or raw vegetables like carrot whenever you feel the urge to eat. And drink water. Water gives you a feeling of fullness.

wrestlemaniac's avatar

yeah but i’m a picky eater, mostly carnivorous.

poofandmook's avatar

so am I, wrestle… but I can polish off a bag of baby carrots faster than you can blink.

wrestlemaniac's avatar

i mean right now i’m eating 2 hot dogs at once, i’m surprise i still weigh 160 LBS, i mean at school i never eat and people think i’m anorexic or something, ugh! stupid meds.

trumi's avatar

I thought shades could control their weight by sending spirits in and boosting their metabolism, or something like that. Can’t the magic help you?

What dreams do you have that will be crushed by your weight?

And what meds are you on kid?

wrestlemaniac's avatar

with my meds i don’t feel hungry but i want to eat, and when i’m off them i eat but i don’t want to.

wrestlemaniac's avatar

@trumi i’m on ritalin, and i have dreams to join the WWE, and my magic is powerless against this human curse, and we shades don’t use magic to give ourselves a boost, it may have a risk of killing us.

delirium's avatar

There sure is something wrong with you, but I don’t think its weight problems.

poofandmook's avatar

that was nasty, delirium.

i’m mortally shocked i’m still as agile and light on my feet as always, but that’s one the traits of a shade… :) heh

wrestlemaniac's avatar

and @ Global i do that but it just makes me twice as hungry.

delirium's avatar

He isn’t a shade. There’s no such thing as shades, vampires, necromancers. Its called being delusional. He’s actually only asking this for attention, which is obvious because he’s rejecting the fact that he needs to eat vegetables and stop being a carnivore. HUMANS are omnivorous. I don’t know what he thinks he is, but a body needs more than just meat.

poofandmook's avatar

@delirium: He has the right to believe in whatever he chooses, and who do you think you are to tell him he’s wrong? So he doesn’t like vegetables! Who cares! Do either of these things affect you? No. So there’s no reason to get personally nasty with him.

wrestlemaniac's avatar

well i do eat veggies, when necessary and if you ar going to start acting like a…...may i please ask that you, Delirium, don’t respond to my question, please.

I think someone has a secret crush on the wrestlemaniac.

poofandmook's avatar

@Kevbo: Absolutely not. But I hate it when people get personally nasty over someone’s spiritual beliefs.

kevbo's avatar

not you, poofus

wrestlemaniac's avatar

oooh, that maybe, it’s not the first time, i knew this girl in my school, she said she hated me, she was a real jackass about it, but when the snow ball dance came who ended up asking me out,...She Did!!!.

trumi's avatar

@Poof; There are spiritual beliefs, and then there are 16-years-old’s that think they are magic.

Les's avatar

@wrestle: If you want to lose weight, you have to commit to it. I know you say you are a picky eater and that you are carnivorous, but there are some good ideas here. Make yourself eat more veggies. Eat things that are high in fiber and protein: both things keep you fuller, longer. Have a bowl of oatmeal, or yogurt with granola. Eat a handful of nuts in place of one of the hot dogs. Also, try adding more whole grains in your diet. If you want a burger, buy whole wheat buns. I have been dieting, and I have been doing the 5–6 small meals a day thing. I find it keeps me satisfied longer, and I have lost 11 pounds.

wrestlemaniac's avatar

or both @trumi.

poofandmook's avatar

@Trumi: I don’t agree with what he believes, but if he wants to believe in it, fine. There’s still no reason to get nasty with him if he’s not pushing his beliefs on anybody, regardless of how silly anyone thinks those beliefs are.

wrestlemaniac's avatar

@Trumi- they’re not silly, but okay you think what you want, as long as you lash out anything insulting.

wrestlemaniac's avatar

@global, what do you mean where do i want to be? and i weight 160Lbs and i am 5,9.

Response moderated (Spam)
poofandmook's avatar

I’m completely passionate about “to each his own” as long as they’re not hurting anyone or pushing it on people. That’s all I’m saying.

Sorry for hijacking.

trumi's avatar

@Poof; He says that the spirits make him swim a mile in 7 minutes, twice as fast as the world record. That’s not a belief, that is delusional. If he wants to believe that he is the imprint of a ghost here on earth, fine. He doesn’t have to ask stupid questions and then ignore serious answers.

wrestlemaniac's avatar

oh i want to be 180–200, ideal weight for being a high-flyer.

delirium's avatar

**points up to trumi’s post** Exactly. Couldn’t have said it better.

and I am responding because you asked me not to respond, and then asked me a question….

Les's avatar

@wrestle: You weigh 160, you say you want to lose weight, but your goal weight is 180–200? Les confused.

wrestlemaniac's avatar

hold one now did i say specifically how i can swim mile in 5 no, i just said i could, (laugh in between) maybe being dragged by a speed boat while moving in a swimming position, and another thing, i didn’t write that question, i’m not “that” stupid to pull off something like that. GOD DAMN YOU ALEX!! (one of wrestle’s friends).

wrestlemaniac's avatar

and what i mean to say is i don’t want to grow fat before my time, and i don’t want to be a fat high-flyer, that’s just wrong.

trumi's avatar

There is no question here. You are just saying you don’t want to be fat.

Take it somewhere else. Some of us actually struggle with our weight.

poofandmook's avatar

I will admit that much, Trumi.. once I found that part out, I was a little offended.

wrestlemaniac's avatar

well you guys can manage it right? manage what you eat, but i’ve been to doctors, people, chinese herbalist, (all he said to me was i had a case pei-pig), and even took slim fast, it don’t work, but i’ll try your ways and see if i can manage, and poof WHAT part out?

poofandmook's avatar

@Wrestle: those of us that battle with weight issues don’t entirely appreciate it when someone’s complaining about breaching 160lbs too soon.

delirium's avatar

(Now do you see my point about this being just for attention?)

wrestlemaniac's avatar

Delirium i asked you once i ask you twice, don’t make me ask thrice!

wrestlemaniac's avatar

and yes i see your point poof, and like i said i’ll try the methods i see here. okay? (now every one is teaming up on me just cause a stupid question i didn’t write, damn)

Hobbes's avatar

Assuming that this really is a serious question: You are sixteen. Sixteen year old boys eat a lot. They are like unstoppable garbage disposals. I certainly was when I was sixteen. But when your growth rate quiets down and your metabolism slows a bit, your hunger will decrease as well.

wrestlemaniac's avatar

oh that all there is to it, well i always considered myself a food disposal especially when i scared my parents when i was able to eat a dozen chicken legs when i was 3, yikes!

NecroKing's avatar

Help has arrived!! I’ve been following your work here, I may be new but it looks like you need allies here, who better then your BFF.

NecroKing's avatar

Message to @All don’t mess with my friend here, or you will feel the power of the Vampier.

wrestlemaniac's avatar

easy there Necro, last thing we need is to start a fluther war…. ;)

loser's avatar

Silly me, I thought this was a genuine question about needing help with a weight problem. Obviously there IS a problem but it doesn’t have anything to do with weight.

NecroKing's avatar

Wrestle have a weight problem? LOL

wrestlemaniac's avatar

hey it’s not funny, and yes it’s a genuine question.

Hobbes's avatar

Hey loser – don’t knock him. You don’t want to incur the wrath of the Vampier, now do you?

NecroKing's avatar

That’s right, after all there is strength in numbers and Wrestle try eating less and going outside more often, i said it once before you need to get out more, do out door activities to get your mind off food.

trumi's avatar

God dammit.

poofandmook's avatar

can you believe in something if you can’t spell it? :x

wrestlemaniac's avatar

Vampier is the romanian way of saying vampire, i’m a right necro?

poofandmook's avatar

are you Romanian?

NecroKing's avatar

yesss, from my mother’s side.

loser's avatar

trumi's avatar

Il est tres stupid.

It’s cool, I’m 1/16 french.

NecroKing's avatar

I’m all over the place in Europe.

wrestlemaniac's avatar

i’m poll, german, span, and part rom.

poofandmook's avatar

Romulan?

I hate Romulans.

wrestlemaniac's avatar

that actually makes sense.

trumi's avatar

I’m a little hobbit, a little elf, and just a smidgen orc.

All of which have to do with weight loss.

Hobbes's avatar

My great-grandfather was Mexican, but I’m not claiming to be a Chupacabra.

poofandmook's avatar

We come from the Orcs, we eat with spoons and forks… we love to eat our PORK.

See, Trumi? It does!

NecroKing's avatar

You hate Romulans eh? I’m part Romanian and I find it insulting and why are we talking about Lord of the Rings?

trumi's avatar

Because we’re sarcastic little shits that like to make fun of idiocy.

wrestlemaniac's avatar

He hates Romulans, tsk, tsk, you @poof best rebuke that.

NecroKing's avatar

I’m an idiot am I?!

Hobbes's avatar

No, no. We would never make fun of someone who practices “arts in magic”, is trained in “black and whit” magic, and comes from “Place where darkness rules”. Funny – one would think you would have learned how to spell at some point during that thousand years you’ve been alive.

NecroKing's avatar

**Hisses** right.

trumi's avatar

Oh look, they both hiss!

How cute.

wrestlemaniac's avatar

easy Necro, and what are you implying trumi?

trumi's avatar

Imply? I’m not implying anything!

What are you inferring?

NecroKing's avatar

I’m detecting an awful lot ridicule and sarcasm.

trumi's avatar

Detect? I’m not detecting anything!

What are you implying?

wrestlemaniac's avatar

whoa okay! let’s stop this fight before it escalates, Necro remember, May 8th? yeah let’s not drag that day here even though it was fun and full of victory I had to bail your ass out of the principals office remember? i know you’re a combatant, but sheath it for a second will you.

NecroKing's avatar

shut it trumi, and yes I remember that day, and as i remember clearly you started it with a steel chair….tell me I’m wrong. And this has nothing to do with answering your question.

wrestlemaniac's avatar

your right, but we can’t help not jumping in a fight ECW style, a girl was in trouble by the way and YOU suggested jumping in.

NecroKing's avatar

True, well let’s agree we both were at fault, and hey look no else (by no one else I mean Delirium, Trumi, and other idiots) is answering your question. Go Death Dealers Tag Team!! (Us, Wrestle, and Necro)

poofandmook's avatar

You do realize, Necro, that Romulans are fictional Star Trek characters, right?

NecroKing's avatar

I never watched Star Trek.

scamp's avatar

Was Zack a triplet???? Also, do you like Rocky Horror, because if you do, I have the perfect young lady for you.

scamp's avatar

@NecroKing consult with “the others”. They will know.

Hobbes's avatar

I feel like one of the Billy Goats Gruff unsuspectingly ambling over the bridge.

NecroKing's avatar

only problem is there are three trolls…heh. :D or in this case Vampires.

wrestlemaniac's avatar

hahahahahahah….(vampire demonic laugh).

Hobbes's avatar

Oh yes. I forgot the two of you were goth kids desperately wanting to believe that you are special. Er, I mean “Vampires”.

This thread has gone on long enough, and strayed far away from the original question into Troll Country. I’m done with it.

NecroKing's avatar

**both Wrestle and Necro Laughing***

wrestlemaniac's avatar

my oh my, well What say you Necro, let’s go raise hell some other time, i got your back you got mine.

NecroKing's avatar

Like Steve Austin says, Arrive, Raise Hell, Leave. hahahahaha.

scamp's avatar

Good job everyone. Keep ‘em busy here.

Indy318's avatar

How about you duct tape your mouth, not only will that prevent from eating, maybe it’ll shut you’ up. oops, did I say that outloud

Something tells me that wrestle and Necro are eerily similiar.

NecroKing's avatar

heheheh..Similar, I want what you’re on, we are not similar in what you mean, besides, Wrestle and I were friends since we were 8, I knew him before that, but I never liked him as much, always competitive, almost like brothers, but later on we grew to be friends or partners in mischief if you want to call it, and anyway we both want to receive the World Tag Team title in the future, that’s right we both are fanatics for the WWE. P.S I’d rebuke that Shut you’ up comment if I were you

poofandmook's avatar

Necro, please don’t waltz into our community making threats. Thank you.

NecroKing's avatar

It’s not a threat, it’s just I know Wrestle ,and if I know him good he’ll snipe back at you with something not nice. It would be usually me, but he’s a bit on the rough edge lately.

poofandmook's avatar

oh Heavens no… not… WORDS!!! cowering

NecroKing's avatar

Well you seem like a sensible guy and I respect that, but let’s all try to be friendly to each other, I mean he “sees” things and I “conjure” things but we ain’t raging war with each other so let’s all be friends and if he was here then he would probably agree. What do you say Truce? :)
