the test amt your body naturally produces is tiny compared to when you use test, even though as a teenager it is high, its nothing near the amt u use on gear... imo
but yea you will grow quicker than older people who arent using

I feel that im most of the cases it is dedication, as we get older we want uor bodys to be in the best possible shape. Call it an early mid life crisis is you will. Atleast that is why im doing it.

also SLEEP is i huge part too! your muscles grow when you are sleeping.. at least 8-10 hours of sleep a night if you can.

take all the bro's advice and work all the tweaks out in your training and diet. gotta have a foundation to work off of before jumping into gear.

What we are all saying is, there are other issues, diet and training... need to eat more... you say you are eating more but if not gaining, you are STILL not eating enough! Its as simple as that. For most of us, we just cant eat 5000 calaries a day without the assistance of weight gainer shakes... they sell some really good weight gainers at GNC and you'll need to do at least 2 shakes a day and plan on it taking several months as a full giant tub of weight gainer is only good for about 4 lbs of weight gain EACH and it takes approximately 25 to 30 days to consume a big tub of weight gainer shake mix.

While you sleep your system is at 100 percent focus on repair and maintenance... the harder you sleep - the more effecient this process becomes. Endogenous Groth Hormone will begin to spike after only 30-60 minutes (which is why power naps are good if you are not getting enough sleep at night). It is true that you can sleep too long with lack of proper nutrition. Which is why a good protein source prior to sleep can help fuel your body for the nighttime healing process.
Regarding teenage testosterone levels : Your natural androgen levels quiver up and down - like going on a hormonal rollercoaster with the end result being manhood - turning your from a boy to a fully matured man. This process will lead to raises in LBM with or without training but dietary proteins are also being used for other virilizing processes - your body is not only interested in LBM. At this time you can take full advantage of high testosterone peaks with a good diet and training program.
In regardess to exogenous androgen use in adolecents: your body is doing enough hormonal manipulation that if you were to step in and make your own changes - I do not see how you could mature properly. You should be sure your body has fully virilized on its own before attempting AAS use. Stunted growth is only a cosmetic effect - I am sure there are many other issues that could effect your adult life... your hormones are very powerful little messengers.
The Role of Testosterone
"Throughout childhood both males and females constantly produce low levels of testosterone. Once puberty and adolescence begin in the male, the hormonal link between the hypothalamus, pituitary gland, adrenal gland, and the gonads is closely regulated in that supra or suboptimal levels of testosterone are readily manifested phenotypically. The adrenal cortex is responsible for producing androgens, including testosterone. In teenage boys, testosterone stimulates the growth of pubic and axillary hair, enlargement of the skeletal system, an increase in the musculature system, thickening of the vocal cords, and emergence of voluntary and involuntary sexual sensations.3,4 In men and women, testosterone serves as the basis for the sex drive (libido). (Although testosterone is considered the "male" hormone, it also serves to promote sexual activity in women.1) It has been demonstrated that receptors exist in the central nervous system that respond to testosterone and its metabolite, dihydrotestosterone, establishing the neurochemical basis for libido. This mechanism is not completely understood."
