I am a teenager and eat a shit ton of food. Is this normal? I mean I don't exercise yet I don't gain weight. I have no goals in mind, its just that I read on the back of my cereal box this morning that I should only be eating 2000 calories yet I eat 3000+. I have had it in my mind for some time now that I am a snowflake. A rogue. A maverick. My ability to eat more then the government recommendations is only the tip of the iceberg.
The government recommendations are set to encompass a large variety of Americans. This variety I speak of covers different ages, races and activity levels. In your situation, since you are still growing, your body will require more calories to produce new cells. I recommend you do not pay attention to the amount of calories that you are eating and enjoy your high metabolism. Remember to eat healthy fruits, veggies, meats and grains while staying away from junk food that is filled with sugar and hydrogenated fats. You may also want to take a multi vitamin/mineral complex daily.
