comment Hoping for advice about pain after writing?
See I have extremely bad posture and back exercises to help improve your sitting posture. Becoming aware of your posture should help as you work at the computer. Learn to relax and drop your shoulders. Set up your computer so that you aren't straining your neck to see the screen. Otherwise you may want to see a physical or physiotherapist to see why you are having pain and how to correct it.

If you have a diagnosis of a grade 3 tear I assume you have seen a doctor. Follow up with them and ask for a referral. to a good physical therapist or physiotherapist.

comment Knee Injury Recovery (possibly MCL)
You could probably save some time by seeing a sports physical therapist to find out what is going on with your knee. They'll evaluate your knee and give you specific exercises.

comment Is it okay to swim in the middle of a lake?
@Jim, the boat arrived on shore with no one on board. As we walked up the beach we saw a mast in the distance, sticking up above a very concerned crowd who had called the Coast Guard.

@Hituptony, the point is that my answer is "clear and accurate" and will be of benefit to Livingtitan should he follow the links and recommendations. If you want or need understanding of the proper use and application of BMI, I refer you to the CDC, WHO, and NIH. Any further questions or comments should probably be moved to chat.

@Livintitan, hopefully this is your wake up call. You can get help here along the way as you have more questions. Also, the NIH has some info to help you get started with a weight loss plan.

comment Is it time for me to get serious about losing weight? (pics)
@Hituptony, I am aware of the pluses and minuses of BMI. However, the photos posted seem to confirm that in this case there is a correlation between the BMI value and "fatness." I read the article that you linked too, but I didn't find reference links to back up conclusion such as, "mathematical snake oil" and "That's total nonsense."

comment What causes fatigue and light head when running?
Have you checked with you doctor? The first step is to get medical clearance for exercise. There can be a number of causes of feeling lightheaded and having burning feet. Because these occur during your run, not just after your run, you would be better off checking with your doctor. If everything checks out ok, then you can modify you eating schedule, hydration, and monitor your heart rate/exertion levels.

You are welcome. As you develop your plan, you will have more questions. Check the search box and if you don't find what you need, just ask. Good luck. You are lucky that you are starting young as these changes are good for a lifetime.

@Jojo, I just edited my answer to address the keto-adapted athlete, for whom consuming post exercise fast-digesting carbs is not recommended.

comment Lower back pain due to ab workout
You may want to include in your question what exercises you are doing for the lower abs and a link to a picture of the type of leg raises you are doing as they may not be a good exercise choice. There are exercises for your abs here that should not bother your back and here.

comment Leg pain after exercises
Yes see your doctor. Whether it is a pulled muscle, a nerve irritation or something else, intense pain such as you describe is worthy of a visit to your doctor.

comment Why can't I lose weight?
You give calories and grams of protein counts, but take a look at the sugar/carbs in your clif bar and trail mix. Your protein bar very likely has sugar as well (depending on the brand). For me, sugar intake has the biggest effect on my weight. If I keep to around 72 gms/day per Wolfgang Puck's recommendation in Life Without Bread my weight normalizes.

comment Tips to improve frailty and an easily injured body?
Have you consulted with your doctor to rule out any medical problems? Spraining an ankle doing ankle rotations or with an exercise strap doing hamstring stretches sounds excessive. A physical therapist or physiotherapist might help to evaluate your weaknesses and give you a basic stabilization program.
