Lost alot of weight... what should I do.
Aright, so I just got mono.. went from about 200 to 179 right now, I'm still losing weight though because I'm still stick. It wouldn't surprise me if I got down to 170 or so, so how should I go about properly putting on the right kind of weight?

Stop being sick and start eating. That should get you fixed.
Do you lift at all?

^^ What Poops said. Also, how tall are you, and how old are you? It makes a difference if you are 5'4" or 6'4" or if you are 18 or 38.Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph.

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

Mono sucks cock...back in the day when I was a baller ;) I caught mono the summer between my sophomore and junior years in High School. Missed all the prep star camps I was supposed to play in and didn't get "noticed" until my Senior year.
I dropped 21 pounds in 10 days...no energy, can't eat...mono sucks cock.
It took about 2 months for my body to recover.

I wonder what this mononucleosis is. I mena, I've only heard about it in this forum and a lot of american movies and TV shows, enough times mentioned as to beleive is pretty common (or at least, not unheard of) there, but I don't know a single person who ever got mononucleosis or who knows somebody who got it.
Why is it (seems) so common there and uncommon here?

BANJO THE GREAT!!!! LMAO!!
He's a handpuppet from a webcomic called Order of the Stick (which, I'll admit, is considerably funnier if you're familiar with... D&D).
Ok, you're down 21 pounds, which is not great, but it's nothing you can't recover from. Two things jump to mind immediately:
A) Remember, protein is NOT just for gaining muscle. Nearly every metabolic process in the human body either directly or indirectly requires amino acids. Insufficient dietary protein (at regular intervals) requires the body to catabolize existing muscle tissue to free up these amino acids. Keep your protein intake up to help prevent further weight loss.
B) Stay hydrated. Water is fairly heavy. Just under 8 & 1/2 pounds per gallon. Flush a cup of pee and you just lost over a pound. Drink a 32oz Gatorade(tm) and you just gained back two pounds.
When you're sick you probably don't have an appetite. Get SOME protein even if you have to toss down a scoop of Designer Whey, and get some fluids, even if it's just chicken broth.
Get some sleep!

Infectious mononucleosis (commonly called "mono") is a viral illness usually caused by the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). Mono most commonly develops in young adults between the ages of 15 and 24.1 The virus can be spread through contact with saliva, mucus (from the nose and throat), and sometimes tears. Rarely, EBV is spread through blood transfusions. Because the virus can be spread through saliva, mono is sometimes called the kissing disease.
Once you have been infected with EBV, your body may periodically shed (or give off) the virus throughout your lifetime, possibly spreading the virus to others.2 This can occur despite the fact that you do not have symptoms after your initial mono infection; the virus may still be found in your saliva many months after you have recovered from your symptoms. Some newly infected people may not have any symptoms of mono and may not be aware they are spreading the virus that causes mono.
It is estimated that 90% to 95% of adults in the world have EBV-antibodies, having been infected with the Epstein-Barr virus at some point in their lives. The vast majority of infections do not result in the development of mononucleosis. The virus infects B cells (B-lymphocytes), producing a reactive lymphocytosis and the atypical T cells (T-lymphocytes). Early childhood infections often cause no symptoms. In developed countries with less crowded conditions and better hygiene, children do not commonly become infected until adolescence. Since they also typically begin dating at that age, the co-occurrence of mono and kissing have led to its being called the "kissing disease," although this is but one of its modes of transmission.
The incidence of clinically recognizable infectious mononucleosis caused by EBV is estimated at 45 per 100 000 in the US. In developing countries, an estimated 90% of children undergo an asymptomatic EBV-infection, and thus are not susceptible to infectious mononucleosis of EBV.
