I noticed skinny people that aren't even that athletic physically can look like they have more muscle than thicker people who actually have more muscle, since there's less fat covering it up.

    a lot of muscle definition deals with how your body is shaped honestly. not everyone can have really defined abs, not even skinny people. Of course working out and eating right can produce results, but most of the people out there have to really work out and eat right to get abs... some just have an genetic advantage physically, and they just have definition with ease, and they don't even have to have a ridiculously low body fat %.

    I have a really high metabolism, and I seem to burn through calories quickly, I am moderately active.

    The thing is, I normally wouldn't eat it, but I have been a lot more lately because it really fills up a lot, and gives me lots of energy, which is honestly more then I can say for most foods.

    It's really weird.

    Also, I don't feel so hungry throughout the day
    Your metabolism is, barring some sort of disorder (which you 99.99% surely don't have) is pretty much like anyone else's is of your weight/height/age/sex/physical activity level. Just getting that out of the way. People unnecessarily complicate things when they talk about metabolism. People who claim to have a "high metabolism" usually overestimate how much they eat (if you only focus on the box of donuts and use that to define your metabolism, then yeah, you're gonna have a mistaken view of your caloric intake) or underestimate their activity level. Just getting this out of the way.

    Yes, you can eat whatever you want for as long as:

    -you get the right amount of calories
    -you get enough fat
    -you get enough protein
    -you get enough water
    -you get enough fiber
    -you get enough vitamins and minerals

    Don't worry about individual foods, but overall diet. There IS evidence however, of detrimental effects of hydrogenated vegetable oils for your health. You may want to limit those in your diet.

    Thanks. Okay, what about trans fats? if something has a high enough percentage, does that mean it will stay in your body/arteries potentially and clog them?

    Probably not the right thread, but whatever.

    What alternatives are there to steroid injections? I just realized I have trigger finger (thumb on right hand), increasingly getting worse and no idea what caused it, and do not want to go to the doctor for this. Some kind of steroid cream I can get, or maybe an overall different way to address it?

    How Is Trigger Finger Treated?

    The first step is to rest the finger or thumb. Your doctor may put a splint on the hand to keep the joint from moving. If symptoms continue, your doctor may prescribe drugs that fight inflammation, such as ibuprofen or naproxen. Your doctor may also recommend an injection of a steroid into the tendon sheath. If the trigger finger does not get better, your doctor may recommend surgery.

    Hmm maybe you could start another thread about the sharing of information regarding exercise/physical health. I think this thread is more for specific questions. Or maybe even a website dedicated to it if you want to make money. ;)

    That's because you can't see it - it's covered up right? Haha. To answer your question we need to figure out why you are getting migraines. Are you drinking fluids? Are you sure it's heat related? Are you sure it's not just an allergy to something outside? How much fluids are you drinking? How often do you go out in hot weather? Are you doing anything strenuous or just simply "being" outside?

    Any help is appreciated!
    Triangle pushups are fun for getting triceps. Over the head arm raises (with free weights) are a good standby. Dips (without your feet touching the ground) are good. There are tons of other things you can do, just google it. As for abs, if you have any bit of a belly I would immediately suggest getting on a high-fiber diet. You can take a supplement (I recommend reliv fib-restore... although you have to buy that through a distributor). Most people have a lot of bloating that they don't even know about. You need to get rid of that first. Eating a ton of broccoli, carrots and other greens will do the trick, but you have to eat a lot EVERY day and it's tough to do.
    You can google ab workouts. Just a basic one like this would work well. You also want to ad planks and situps to this - without a doubt. You also need to google other workout videos because this doesn't cover everything.
    The one piece advice I have that you might not find other places it 1) climb ropes. If you don't have a place with ropes around you then check the woods in parks by your house (if you have any). Depending on where you live there may be enormous grape-vine vines that reach wayyyy up into the trees and are great for climbing. Just check around, some places have them others don't. And check them first to make sure they don't fall down. If you give them a tug and they don't move then you're fine to go for it. Nothing beats being 30 feet off the ground swinging around. 2) Climbing up and down is hard enough and will do wonders for your abs in a way that ab excersices just won't. To take it to the next level (not advisable until you are strong enough, particularly not high off the ground) do leg raises to the sides and generally rock your body back and forth. It sounds silly, but just wiggle your body in the air. The abs will be doing some killer stabilizing while you do this.

    Soooo, I'm thin, exercise every other day + often ride a bike or go jogging, eat five regular meals that provide the right amount of calories for me, or at least I think so, eat 'em slowly and without a rush, very rarely consume veggies that cause bloating, don't have constipation - heh - don't chew lots of chewing gum, but try to eat yogurt more often... all those are advised when you have belly bloating, which I probably suffer from. I've noticed that in the morning everything is fine, but then, the more I eat, the bigger stomach I get. Also, it occurs mostly when I have milk & cereal for breakfast (understandable but annoying) or at weekends, when dinner is at home and not in school - my parents make bigger meals and I sadly can't do anything about it, though they aren't that big anyway.
    Any ideas? Maybe some of you had / have the same problem? Nobody wants to go with me to the doctor, so yeah. xD
    Cereal is hard to digest and will really bloat you up. How often do you poop? How much comes out? How easily and how quickly does it come out? The answer to these questions will tell you if you are eating enough fiber. If you aren't then you will have bloating. You want to be going atleast once a day, preferably more. You want to be able to go within the first minute and it should be easy. If this is not happening then really rachet up how much raw broccoli and carrots you each, as well as other ruffage, but these are my favorites. You can take fiber supplements as well - just make sure they do the job. Pooping should be effortless and you should feel good afterwords. If it's no then you are backed up and this is your first thing you need to address. After that, just do cardio like crazy. It's hard to maintain a big fat belly when you are biking hundreds of miles!
