Have you thought of tracking his nutrition on SparkTeens.com? www.sparkteens.com/
You could track his protein, carbs and fat intake.

I read that the #1 Recovery food, for after a hard workout, is 1% chocolate milk. I also read that you can use nonfat powdered milk to kick-up your protein intake instead of spending a lot of money on protein powders.

Here's an article "Top 10: Recovery Foods"

Thanks to both of you. Yesterday I had him eat a lot when he first came home. He struggled to eat it all, but it was all healthy. Of course, he was still full come dinner, but he managed. He's never been a kid who would eat a lot at any one meal, so getting enough into him has been hard. Plus, he's rather anti-veggie and fruit, he only like a couple of things and getting enough of those has always been a challenge.

Both of you came up with ideas that triggered some thought on my part.

I came up with smoothies, made with whole milk, yogurt and fruit. Then I threw in a peanut butter sandwich, a salad, a hard boiled egg and 1/2 a banana. I'm going to look into the protein shakes and see what they have in them so that he doesn't eat anything that's on the prohibited list.

The spaghetti dinner is an excellent idea, it's one of his favorites. We did that during wrestling season because he had already weighed in for the meet and could pig out a little.

The smoothie works for my daughter, too. Although her's I make with skim milk. She's very weight conscious, so I'm trying to instill in her that she looks great and if she eats healthy she'll stay that way.

Thanks again! emoticon

Protein shakes are also a good alternative for in between practices. Instead of nothing at all. We buy the EAS chocolate or vanilla whey protein from Costco and whenever any of us does not have time to eat, we make a shake. The nuts/peanut butter suggestion is excellent also. But make sure he does not eat them too fast as peanut butter is on the top twenty for heartburn causes. emoticon

I never thought about a sandwich rich in protein and fat (the good kind) before bed. He loves peanuts and peanut butter. Good idea, I'll send him to bed with one tonight.

Anyone else have suggestions or recipes? I welcome all ideas.

My workout coach has mentioned that she had to take her teenage son to the doctor for being underweight and involved in sports. The dr. suggested peanut butter sandwich right before bedtime.

Hello all. I just started here myself and I'm working on meeting my weight loss goals. Here's my problem.

I know many here have concerns about your kids being too heavy and I don't want to sound disrespectful, but I have the opposite problem. I have a 15-year-old son who is very involved in football and wrestling. He is about 5'11" and weighs about 140, a fairly decent weight. Last year during wrestling he was down to 125, not such a good weight. I want him to stay up closer to a healthy weight during football and build enough muscle so that he doesn't lose too much during wrestling.

Let me assure you, the wrestling program where we are isn't like it was in my day. The coaches are very dedicated to keeping healthy weight on the boys, not allowing them to lose too much and constantly reinforcing healthy eating habits. But it is a strenuous sport.

How can I help my son make sure he gets enough calories now that football is in full swing? He practices 4 hours a day, rain or shine. Eating a big lunch between sessions (one hour break) isn't possible. The boys just throw up if they eat too much, so a light lunch is the only thing they can keep down. When he's back, he's tired, hot and not very hungry. I know that forcing him to eat too much at one time can lead to overeating in the future, but I need to maximize his calorie intake in a healthy way.

Any suggestions would be really helpful.

Thanks! emoticon
