Questions About Puberty Weight Gain? Get Answers, Tips, and Advice at BeingGirl.com. Dear BeingGirl Experts, I'm going through puberty like most girls I know. The only thing is that I have been gaining so much weight during this period of time. It seems that I am always hungry, and I don't always make the right choice on what I should eat. I want to lose all the extra weight I put on because I know adolescence is a time to start good eating habits and to be healthy. Thanks, Lisa --- Dear Lisa, You can start to get good information on healthy eating by going to the library, getting a book on nutrition, or researching health eating on the Internet. Getting mom involved in your goal of controlling your weight and eating healthy will be important as well. Keeping cleaned and cut-up raw veggies in your refrigerator makes it easy to not snack on junk food but to reach for a healthier choice. Fresh fruit is another great snack so you don t eat refined sugary snacks. Starting your day with a healthy breakfast helps you body work well from the start of the day. Eating then gets your metabolism moving and burning calories. Exercise regularly and keep adding to your routine. With a positive attitude, you can do this and build good habits you will benefit from for the rest of your life. Good luck as you eat healthfully!
