Topic: How do I lose weight? (10-15 lbs)?
June 20, 2019 / By Tawnie Question:
I'm not happy with my weight. I feel fat. I want to lose weight the right way. (No throwing up or starving comments please). I don't just want to lose weight but become healthier, feel better about myself and maintain the weight off. I'm a student in high school so I need something that doesn't require too much time. Please give me sugguestions on exercises, eating habits or other things that might help. Thanks. BTW: I don't exercise much now and I'm not the greatest healthy eater.
I'm 16. About 140. 5'2" and I'm about a 3/5/7 in jeans and a small or medium in shirts but I have a gut which annoys me. Thanks for the help so far guys. :)

height, waist, & hip measurements in inches? Without it, it is ok. I'll just skip that part.
Thanks for giving the information. There are too many girls here asking how to lose weight when they are underweight and/or anorexic.
For your age, your height puts you in between 10-25th percentile. In 100 girls your age, 10-25 girls will be shorter than you. You are shorter than average.
For your age, your weight puts you in between 75-90th percentile. In 100 girls your age, 75-90 girls will be lighter than you. You are heavier than average.
It looks like between those two you are heavy.
Let's see your BMI (Body Mass Index) Score. It is 25.6 (Just Overweight)
* Underweight = <18.5
* Normal weight = 18.5–24.9 (104-136 lbs)
* Overweight = 25–29.9
* Obesity = BMI of 30 or greater
You are at least 4 lbs. overweight. You could get as low as 104 lbs for your height, but don't really recommend that but you can get close to it.
I suggest doing cardio exercises. Cardio exercises is when you are breathing faster and sweating. If you are out of breath you are no longer doing cardio. You are doing it too fast. Out of breath = not cardio = not burning fat = burning sugar & amino acids (you need these).
What cardio exercise? I recommend doing the stairs. Why? It is free, indoors, low impact, and not too easy & not too hard. I think walking is a little slow and time consuming. I think jogging for your situation would be jarring and painful. I suggest going up and down the stairs because it is much more challenging than walking and a lot less painful than jogging. Do this for up to 30 min/day. Maybe twice a day. During your first time out, there is a chance of over doing it. You will be sore (like me) for a couple of days. As soon as you recover, do it again everyday.
Like the other guys said, drop the sodas (including diet sodas), juices, sugar drinks, & junk food as much as you can. If you order value meals, just order a drink and the sandwich don't get the fries. Start progressively to cut down things that you might not miss. Instead of a cheese burger, eat it with out the cheese. It won't be too much of a shock for you. Start to replace things with more healthy things. Regular sodas -> Diet sodas -> water. Keep yourself hydrated - if you are hydrated, you are less hungry. Progress as fast as you can handle. It is a life adjustment. Eat 6 small meals a day vs. 3 full meals a day. Waiting for the next meal will make you really hungry and be out of control and eat everything in site. If you order a burger, don't eat all of it. Save some for later, and then eat it when you have a small craving.
Slow and steady wins the race.

I will try to keep it simple. Your metabolism is basically the rate at which your body burns calories to create energy. So the faster your metabolism, the faster you burn calories and the easier it is to lose unwanted weight. To boost your metabolism naturally you just need to eat the right foods.
You can sit down and literally eat a 1,000-calorie dinner and yet be absolutely starving just a few hours later and the reason is simple: Because your body didnt get what it needed in those 1,000 calories so it sends signals to your brain telling you to ingest more calories and thus, the late-night cravings. That means that the surest way to end those late-night cravings and keep your weight loss goals on track is to eat a more balanced, nutritious diet that actually gives your body what it needs.
It's VERY EASY to lose weight if you eat the right foods. Check out Dr. Charles Livingston's video here: http://www.sexyjese.com - it will blow your mind.

After I had my son (approximately a yr later) I began taking Slimquick. Its a nice tablet that raises metabolism and goals the places toughest for females to lose with out a whacked out quantity of further hormones and pointless evils. I additionally began doing half-hour of aerobic three-four instances per week and resistance coaching two instances per week. Rather than reduce out all fat and deprive myself on a vitamin, I simply ate smaller quantities and truthfully paid awareness to what I ate. I spotted a change within the first few weeks. I fell of the health wagon over the vacations and feature began up with the Slimquick and endeavor once more and it feels nice. Being a keep at residence mother, it may be tough to uncover time for your self, however you need to find time for your self. Exercise at nap time or earlier than the child wakes within the morning. It could also be a ache given that that is while you desire to relaxation, however you can think larger and be larger on your baby eventually. Good success, Mama!

Originally Answered: Anybody know how lose weight both safely and fast, i need to lose weight but get tired of heavy workouts?
I cut out ALL sugar (table sugar, corn syrup, honey, etc.) less than a month ago and I have lost 10 pounds. I reduced my sugar and cut out all carbs except brown rice about 4 months ago and I have lost 30 pounds since the end of October.
I don't even miss them now. I had to do this for health reasons, not weight loss. The weight loss was needed and has been a nice side benefit!
Hope this helps.
I should add also that I have done no exercise at all. I am getting ready to add that in shortly!
