Hi all

My son is 14 yrs old. He weighs 113. He plans to play football next season. He is in training and is taking protien. He wants to know how much should he take and also wants to know how much he should expect to grow in 5 months. Any help on a diet and lifting program would be helpful. He hopes to be at 160lbs in 5 months is this possible. Thx Mataz

10 lbs a month? Seems unlikely. The first 20 lbs will come easy as he is new to lifting, then it will get really slow.

1.5g per pound of body weight is the best bet.

He should be eating a high carb high protein moderate fat diet if he wants to gain weight.

Carbs in the form of past, rice, veg and fruit.
Protein in the form of Milk, eggs, chicken and beef.
Fats in the form of olive oil, peanuts, flax oil.
