Hey everybody, this is my first post and I just wanted to ask for some help . I'm 14 years old 6'2" but I weigh 314 lbs. This year was my first year of sports ever and I played football as offensive line (duh), however I really struggled with conditioning. I am asking you for help because I am scared that my health is at risk. I need to lose weight for sure, and if I could, build strength for football. Thank you for reading.

Hey Bigman054,

I would really look into seeing a certified nutritionist to help you with this. The main reason is because of your age and size. That being said, if this is not a possibility, then you can successfully use the steps below. These are designed to help all people regardless of their fitness level. You can't go wrong with working on calorie manipulation.

Try to follow these steps:

1. Determine your daily calorie needs based on your current phisque and fitness level:
Determining Daily Caloric Needs (http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=156380183&p=1121996743&viewfull=1#post1121996743)


2. Organize/create a diet that is either at a surplus OR a defect of the calories determined in step 1, depending if you are planning on cutting or bulking. (100-500 deficit OR 200-500 surplus)


3. Check out the following link and read about basics of nutrition before formulating your plan:
Nutritional Information - The Basics (http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=136691851)


4. Focus on a training plan that is conducive to your goals (3-5 times per week traiing program)


5. Aim for 1 gram per pound of bodyweight per day (e.g.. 150lbs = 150 grams of protein per day)

Great advice, although at 314 and 6'2" you should most certainly be cutting. I would start out at a 20% deficit and see where that gets you. I suspect that would be about 600-700 calorie deficit per day based on your size.
Good luck, the first step is admitting you have a problem and resigning to do something about it.

I think at 300lbs plus he can cut more than 100-500 calories a day lol. 300g+ protein intake is gonna suck. Prepare to be full buddy! You won't think it's a diet !

Great advice though in that first response. Not trying to undermine him!
