suggestions for shaping up

Hey i'm 18 and am 5'1 i weigh 120 pounds. i know this is not overly alot but my body still looks un heathly... i don't understand why i look the way i do. i exercise EVERY day. i'm in the Army so exercise is very important. you would think being in the army would get me all firm i guess is the way i want to put it. i only have the opp. to eat 3 times a day, no smaller meals in between could this be the problem? and then by the time it is chow time i'm starving so i am likely to eat a hugh meal. does any one have any tips or suggestions on how i can shape up a little... thanks

You can join a gym. They have amazing cardio machines, and so much to choose from, so it is alot more fun that way. They have good classes that you will love, I'm sure. I like kickboxing, step classes, and sculpting classes alot.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Continue excercise and dietary modification.
I would suggest you to start multivitamins in order to have good form.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
