Intermittent Fasting As A Teen

Brian Jr Mugshot

You'll notice that while I'm not a total sack of dough I'm... on the heavy side for a teenager. What you won't notice is that during that time I also wore glasses and had braces. At seventeen years old--the prime of my metabolic life--I was pushing 210 pounds at 6'3" (and that's assuming I didn't shave off 10 lbs for the record, which, I very well may have). Let's say I was Honest Abe though. Plugging those numbers into a BMI calculator puts me about +1.2 points into "overweight". It's not terrible, but I'm sure most of you dear readers underwent enough insecurity in high school to know that combining overweight with glasses and braces... doesn't exactly feel good.
