Hello the guy! Let’s look at this situation together.

First of all, let me tell you that we did receive your two other e-mails. To be fair to everyone, we will answer one of your questions today. Don’t hesitate to write back or to call us directly concerning your other questions. Okay?

You’re wondering how you lost weight, knowing that you didn’t exercise and you ate more. First of all, let me tell you that this situation can happen. Puberty brings a lot of changes: emotional, psychological and physical ones. When you get into puberty, your body changes. Usually, you get taller, your arms seem longer, your feet get bigger, etc. When the body stretches, the weight can get different. Also, the body needs a lot of food to develop. A lot of teenagers eat more during puberty. Tell me, is it your weight or your shape that have changed since your puberty?

Concerning masturbation, I don’t think it has something to do with your body changing, a normal thing during puberty. Masturbation is normal. Some people do masturbate, others don’t, but the ones who don’t are not necessarily bigger. Do you understand?

Take care the guy!
