i’m in need of some dietary aid, but first some back ground info. i’m 16 years old, 5’6.5", and 150lbs. As for body fat, i have no idea, but what i do know is that i am pretty chubby. as of 5 minutes ago my waist is 33.5", which from reading around, is too large for my height/weight. two weeks ago i began wendler’s 5/3/1 program, and my current maxes are a 200lb squat, 180lb bench press, and a 240lb deadlift (i know, pretty weak).
Now to the question. I have been debating what to do with my weight. On one hand, I could focus on dropping body fat, but some people seem to say that teens shouldn’t be worrying about this. On the other, i could maintain my weight and focus becoming stronger/healthier. and then there are some people who believe if you’re weak and have little muscle mass, it’s time to pack some meat on. I’m really stuck here and am not sure which path i should follow.
