Hi there I have a couple questions for you. I'm almost 15, 5'9" and about 138 pounds. I play basketball around 6 times a week and also do horse back riding. I want to trim down a bit and tone up. I eat A LOT but I don't feel full. I especially want to build leg/core strength. I can't do squats or lunges due to a hip problem. Additionally, I have type 1 diabetes. Any meals or exercises you can help me with?
Sorry for my late reply and sorry I’m going to give you some ‘tough love’ answer: If you have a hip problem and you can’t do squats or lunges, why the hell are you still playing basketball 6 times a week (high impact sport, lots of jumping) and horse back riding (inner and outer thigh training)? If you already have a injury at 14 years old, you should stop what you’re doing and go see a physiotherapist.
About the type 1 diabetes: as you may already know, you should monitor your glucose before and after exercise to understand how it responds to certain types of exercise. Also, exercising with a partner is very important in case something happens. Try to learn as much as you can about your condition to master how your body responds.
About eating a lot but not feeling full: I have one word for you: protein. Add a can of tuna (in water) or 4 egg whites to your meal and I bet you won’t feel hungry.
