I've always wondered how Dylan could eat junk food and large portions of food still remain as slender as he did, the same with Eric. How did they not gain weight or seem out of shape or anything, or even have a face full of pimples from the numerous amounts of junk food that they ate. That was one of the things that always puzzled me about them. Both seemed to have very clear skin and Dylan was like slender as hell, as was Eric. Did they ever do exercise to remain that way or what? I've just always been curious about that.

well, many people in their age have a fast metabolism, especially guys. Also, Dylan lost almost 10kg for the last year before massacre, because he was depressed.

True, a fast/high metabolism is a wonderful thing.

I also think that it was possibly genetic, especially on Dylan's part. He was just built tall and thin. Eric was also thin built with a smaller/finer type bone structure.

They could have had good genes as well. Sue, for all she has been through still looks young for her age.

You can see the evolution of Dylan's weight loss when you watch their videos.

Look at his RNN video and then watch Radioactive Clothing. It's pretty telling.

depression also affects the weight of a person.

Agreed. A mentally healthy Dylan could have easily carried around 200+ pounds. He was still growing.

I always wondering, why Sue didn't notice that Dylan lost so much weight. I mean, when I lost 15 kg due my depression my mom notice that, and turned on her "alarm mode" and started to watch me closely.
Btw, I'm not blame anyone, especially Sue, but still very curious

I believe that several witnesses stated that Dylan had noticeable acne on the day of the attack. I don't know if that was a long-term issue for him but he didn't have clear skin by 4/20.

Wow, I didn't know males were so different from females. i was just surprised because with Dylan and Eric too, eating junk food, Eric even seemed to have a fresh face, no pimples or anything....

Sue talks about his weight loss in her book a little bit. She apparently noticed it but didn't really connect it to depression or as something she should have been concerned about. She did say that she would offer to make him something to eat between meals.

I get the feeling that they didn't eat so much sugar, only fat. The two snackfoods Eric listed as his favourites didn't have sugar in them at all.

I was the same build as Eric during my teens, and I would often get annoyed that I could never gain weight. I would wear only long sleeve shirts, but after seeing videos of Eric walk around, proudly showing off his match stick arms, it strangely gave me confidence to do the same. Also about the acne, from the majority of their school pictures it does appear they had clear skin, but all the other footage of them is in really bad quality so one or two pimples on their face probably didn't get captured.

I think she said he was eating meals at home but wasn't sure if he was eating at school.

She said she realizes now it was a sign of depression but she didn't put the two together. She said since had always been lanky and tall.

I think Dylan may have a few pimples in his junior yearbook picture but that is about it. I think he looks so different in his yearbook pics when he has short hair vs long hair. His DL pic barely looks like him too but you can tell he has a lot more weight on him. His shoulders look broader and his neck looks muscular.

I've got hormonal acne too but only during winter. It's so weird. I look so old but then when summer comes I look like a baby again.

Maybe the warm climate really helped them as it does for me?

Easy, they didn't eat more calories than what their bodies burnt. That's why they could eat junk food and still be thin.

As others have pointed out, it is mix of body type, genes and mainly age, a lot of males are slender before their 20's. After that metabolism usually gets slower and people generally start to gain more weight even without changing their eating habits

Isn't the whole junk food equals spots a myth? I think it's even been disproved by science.

It has been. But I think different foods do effect people in different ways. Growing up I didn’t realize it dairy was causing a lot of congestion issues with me. I thought I just had chronic sinus issues but no I was sensitive to dairy.

It's not like either of them ate much.

Also Dylan was chubby when he was in 7th/8th grade. Probably the reason why he was picked on and why he said he was "fat" in the Basement Tapes.

Usually in 7th and 8th grade you gain some weight due to growing. I was chunky in those grades but became taller and skinny in 9th grade.

I agree and know full well what that's like. I just think Dylan thought he was "fat" due to being called that in Middle School.
