Question: I'm 17 5"8 200lbs and want to lose weight. I've minimalized my calorie intake per day, I eat in the morning cornflakes or some cereal high in fiber and for lunch I eat tuna with whole wheat crackers. Then for dinner boneless skinless chicken seasoned with rice on the side. And of course water all day with every meal.i also do cardio 4 times a week for 1 hour and 30 min each time. I'm also looking to see if flax seed would be a good addition

Lose the cereal, the crackers and anything made with wheat or corn. Eat whole foods, not processed foods. Crackers and cereal are processed foods. Milk? No. -- unless it's unsweetened almond milk, 30 cal a cup. Concentrate on counting carbs, not calories and while you're losing weight eat 25 to 30 grams of carbs a day Seeds are fine.

Exercise frequently. An exercise routine is fundamental to weight loss. To lose abdominal fat, work out for at least 30 to 60 minutes three times a day---more if possible. Effective exercises for losing abdomen fat can include aerobics, walking, jogging or biking. Engage in abdominal workouts. While high-impact exercises help you to shed belly fat, toning exercises strengthen the core muscles and contribute to a flatter stomach. Along with regular aerobic workouts, you need toning exercises such as Pilates and stomach crunches.Eat a healthy diet. Some people naturally store fat in their abdomens. That's why the food you eat can determine whether you lose or gain weight in the stomach. Choose your foods carefully, and adopt a low-fat, low-sugar diet. Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, don't overindulge, and limit your carbohydrate intake to 130 g per day. Lose water weight. . Losing water weight helps you to quickly shed pounds and flatten your abdomen. Drink at least eight glasses of water each day to get rid of excess fluids in your body, and reduce your sodium intake to less than 2500 mg per day.

Instead of cereal have something unprocessed. Eggs for example are much more nutrient dense than cornflakes. Feel free to eat the skin on the chicken, but instead of rice, have vegetables. Add butter to them! We need fat in our diets; it helps to absorb nutrients. And it's tasty... filling, too. I go through about a kilo of butter a month (a 250g pack a week). I've lost weight and am healthy.

Your diet is totally wrong. It is carbohydrates that cause weight gain, cut out the cereals, rice and crackers. Eat the tuna and chicken (with the skin) Fat doesn't make you fat, carbs do. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3-BJzqMb...

Vegetables would be a good addition. They'll fill you up with fewer calories than all the carbs you are consuming. Everything in moderation. Figure out you calorie count. It appears that you're eating too little. You shouldn't be under 1200 - 1500 per day. Flax seed is a good anti-oxidant, but does nothing for weight loss.

That will help a lot, but its not just exercising that you need to lose weight, you also need to eat right, eat healthy foods, serving sizes, enough fruits and veggies, and also don't tell yourself that your on a diet, say your just making healthy chooses and having fun dancing. Hope this helps... Good luck :D
