well lately ive been starving i mean ravenous for some food because i have been watching what i eat. after my last weigh in i was 132 and im 5"8. i grew 2 inches taller but i gained about 7 pounds from my last fight. my coach says its alright because im 2 inches taller but shud i worry so much about what i eat? i stay away from saturated fat and trans, candy, fast food, ice cream all that sht ive been living off wheat bread sandwhiches and fuckign salad with protein shake. im dieing and a cheat day once a week aint cuttin it shud i been so concerned with this or is the occasional greasy meal not allowed. im still young (15 age) with 3 fights 132 lbs 5"8 tips?

Well you're young so it doesn't really matter what you eat your body will burn all of it but you suffer consequences from eating things you shouldn't while training. I'm gonna take a guess and say its because you're growing :dunno:

when ur young ur matabalism can pretty much handle anything u throw at it as long as u do regular exercise (which of course u are doing in boxing)so i wouldnt think there was much of a problem. also most people put on weight before going through a growth spot and lose most of the extra weight when things settle down. since u grew 2 inches id say thats a growth spurt.

Eat whatever you want if you're working out regularly. When I was working out 6 days a week I at greasy fast food nearly every day in high school. You won't gain a pound bro.
