In order to lose 1lb a week, you need to burn 3,500 calories a week (500 a day). So in order to lose 2lbs a week, you need to burn 7,000 calories a week (1,000) a day. I'm assuming you live a sedentary/light activity lifestyle (you probably go to school, walk around, etc.) so on average, you should be burning 1700-2000 calories a day just by existing and doing normal things. Now, that means nothing when you replace those calories with food because while you might burn 1700, but you might eat 2000 (leading to weight gain). In order to lose weight, you need to create a calorie deficit, which is the number of calories left over when you subtract your consumption calories from your burning calories. For example: if you eat 1200 calories a day, and in that average day you burn 1700, your calorie deficit is 500 - so you've burned 500 extra calories. This is a good diet plan to start out with, since at 500 extra calories burned per day, you will (ideally, if you keep it up) lose 1lb a week. If you want to increase that number to ~1,000 extra c. burned per day and ideally lose 2lb/wk, you'll have to unfortunately increase calorie burn by probably adding exercise that burns 500 a day. However, 1200 calorie diets are generally recommended for sedentary people with NO exercise, so should you consider attempting to burn 1,000c/day, you'll probably need to up your caloric intake by an extra 200. Don't starve yourself over there! In short, you need to start counting calories and cut out fatty/junky foods that carry tons of calories in small packages. Weight loss is kind of simple math really. Good luck!

Do you have any eating habits that can improve? * Are you eating larger and larger portions when you have a meal? Try to deliberately take smaller portions when you have a meal. Do not feel that you have to 'empty your plate'. Perhaps change the plates that you have in your cupboard (which may be large) to more medium sized plates. In this way you will naturally serve up smaller portions. * What do you have for snacks? Try changing chocolates or cakes for fruit. * Do you have second helpings at meal times when you are really already full? * Skipping meals is usually a bad idea. It sounds a good idea, but many people just become hungry, and have snacks later in the day, and eat too much at the next meal. Eating at regular mealtimes may be a first important change. Three healthy meals a day is best. * Do you always have a pudding? Will a light yoghurt do instead of a sweet pastry? * Do you eat quickly? Are you ready for a second helping before most people have half finished their first plateful? Obese people, on average, eat faster than non-obese people. It is best to train yourself to chew each mouthful for longer, and to eat slowly. Top tip - three healthy meals each day, including breakfast, is better than skipping meals. Eat slowly, chew longer.

I found the book to be very informative and easy to read. I've lost 17 pounds in 12 days, I'm just concerned that I'm losing too much weight, too quickly. I will admit I haven't followed the guide exactly. I'm not sticking perfectly to the listed foods and meal plans (but mostly) and doing very little exercise, but the weight keeps flying off. It clearly works and if I'd followed it exactly I think it would scare the living daylights out of me because of the amount that I'd lose. So thanks again for the information. I've never purchased anything like this before because they are usually full of trash, but 3WD has been a pleasant surprise. Get started today!

you cant lose weight fast and keep it off, exercise and it shall go down depending on how much effort you put into it. you are too young to diet so just eat in moderation and dont eat anything after your dinner, including dessert

What you first want to do is calculate your Body Mass Index (BMI) and your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR). Those are important tools, especially your BMR, that will be a good foundation for a diet. Since you included your stats I will do that for you. BMI: 30.2 (Overweight) BMR: 1664.5 (2579 if active, 1996 if not active) In case you don't know, your BMI determines if you are in a healthy weight range and allows you to set goals for how much weight you should lose to achieve that healthy weight loss goal. Your BMR tells you the amount of calories you need daily to MAINTAIN your current body weight. You should try to cut that number down by 500-1000 calories depending on what the original number is and you activity level. As a female you should not go below 1200 calories a day. You may want to keep a food journal to help you record and keep track of this. The most important thing is to make sure that you eat plenty of foods that are high in fiber and low in fat, sugar, and calories. These foods are also supposed to help sustain you and keep you from being hungry. These foods include whole grains, fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, and fat free or low-fat dairy products. Stay away from products that contain refined sugars and additives and foods that are high in fat but low on nutritional benefit. A useful tip that I have learned when eating out of eating in is to imagine a peace sign on your plate. In the two smaller sections of the piece sign you should have your carbs and lean protein and in the largest section of the peace sign you should have your vegetables. Using this method guarantees that you will be eating a healthy, well balanced meal. You should also aim to drink at least 6-8 glasses of water daily. This is important because it keeps your body hydrated and flushes out your system, which will help to aid in weight loss. You may also want to take a daily multivitamin to ensure that you are taking in enough of the vitamins and minerals your body needs. In addition, the experts recommend that you get at least thirty minutes of physical activity on most days of the week. This can be divided into three ten-minute sessions a day, not including warm-up and cool-down time. Your heart rate should increase and you should break a sweat during your workout sessions. In addition, you should try to do strength training three days a week, or every other day. This can be a more rigorous workout, or it can be simple push ups, crunches, sit-ups, lunges, and using lighter weights or canned goods to tone and build lean muscle. If you follow these guidelines, you will lose weight and you can expect to become healthier. This will help you become leaner, keep your metabolism up so that you do not gain weight, and you will be healthier overall. Good luck! EDIT: Do NOT go with surgery, that should be used ONLY as a last resort. I know several people who are experiencing some severe side effects and problems from these types of surgeries. Also, what your dad said was very disrespectful. There was no reason for him to say something like that and in such a rude manner. You just need to be happy with yourself FIRST and if there is something you can improve on, go for it. As far as comparing yourselves to bikini models, dont worry, they are usually air brushed anorexics anyways. :-P Just be happy with yourself first and all else will follow.
