The number one thing you must get rid of immediately is sugar, all sweeteners and artificial sweeteners. The biggest culprit for diabetes and obesity in America is high fructose corn syrup. HFCS is in almost every processed food out there. It's in your soda, fruit juice, cookies, cereal, bread, ketchup, etc. What's so bad about it? Unlike other simple sugars where your body uses it immediately for fuel, fructose doesn't get broken down, it goes directly into fat. The other interesting tidbit about HFCS, it does NOT trigger the hormone leptin which is necessary to tell your brain that you are nutritiously full, instead, you have to be physically full.
Once you get sugar out of your body and avoid it for good, you'll notice how much easier it is to eat healthier foods. You'll also notice that just by dropping sugar alone, you'll lose 10-15% weight right there. You'll also notice that your immune system is significantly stronger because sugar slows it down to a crawl.
If you still want to eat something sweet, eat some fruits raw. That's natural sugar. That's completely okay and good for you. I'm not saying you should eat a fruit smoothie, that's bad for you. I'm saying go grab an apple, strawberries, bananas, oranges, plums, grapes, etc., rinse the fruit, and eat it raw. Not only does the fruit has sugar, it also has fiber, a lot of antioxidants, phytonutrients, and many other very good things that your body needs.
Second big change you need to make to your diet. Avoid all fried foods. French fries, fried chicken, breaded chicken sandwich, chicken wings, etc. Frying foods in oil destroys and damages almost all of the vitamins and nutrients in the food to the point that the nutrients are almost worthless. The nutrients are so poor quality, your body will starve and demand to eat more. But most people choose to eat more poor quality food which comes to no surprise why obesity is widespread.
Stick with those two for now and after a few months, you'll be ready to eat more healthier foods.
Start with doing something you love. Don't force yourself to do something you hate, you'll just give up. There are many types of activities out there. Basketball, cycling, running, hiking, swimming, football, martial arts, soccer, dancing, even play the Nintendo Wii Sports or DDR game. You'll lose weight with any activity, but to truly lose the weight and keep it off, you need to find something that you enjoy doing. So, start having some fun and see what you like.
Your best bet will be to go to your Dr. and sit down and have a talk with him/her. They can help you out with getting on a diet and exercise plan that will be good for you. Use your fear of a heart attack be your motivation and loose weight, eat healthy and before you know it with hard work you will be out of the risk zone for heart problems which you are in at this point.
Saturated fat is the main dietary cause of high blood cholesterol. Saturated fat is found mostly in foods from animals such as beef, beef fat, veal, lamb, pork, lard, poultry fat, butter, cream, milk, cheeses and other dairy products. Foods from plants that contain saturated fat include coconut, coconut oil, palm oil and palm kernel oil (often called tropical oils), and cocoa butter.
High cholesterol causes high blood pressure. The best thing for high cholesterol is Losing weight. A plant-based diet in conjunction with a properly conducted fast, most often leads to a total recovery or a vast improvement in hypertension and angina.
You're 17 and nearly 300 pounds; taking advice from Yahoo answers is not the answer. Don't bother listening to (well meaning but misguided) people, who don't know you from a hole in the wall and see your weight as the only issue; dispensing fat farm formulaic advice and telling you to do things like exercise may harm or kill you.
You may already have worrisome problems because of your extreme weight. You need to talk with your doctor first.
