Don't eat until you want to throw up! My husband is 5 ft 10 inches tall and has weighed 150 for his whole life. He is just not a big guy has always been thin. he put some weight on around 40 years old but has been riding his bike and is back down to his normal weight, at least within 5 pounds and he is 52 years old.

You guys need to just make sure you eat healthy food and you will be fine at whatever weight your body is best at.

When I stopped riding my bike, my weight crept up to 10st 14lbs.

Maybe you have a worm.

Your metabolism is probably geared to endurance rather than sprinting type things.

Heyy can you answer my question here? I know its anthonys' thread, but yea.

Is it possible for metabolism to be geared to both endurance and sprinting? Because I can do both really well..
