I'm 15 years old and 2014 lbs. I need to know of any tasty drinks or easy diets to loose weight I'm going to start trying to eat better and exercise. Any tips will help I don't want diet pills or extremely strict diet as I go back to school August 12th.

For weight loss, dieting is more effective than exercise. Reducing your intake of junk sugar will help as in items 22 and 106 in http://www.rheumatic.org/sugar.htm The natural sugars in fruits are OK as they are metabolised to glucose slowly due to their high fiber content. Fruits are low in calories and are not fattening. Most fruits are metabolism boosting foods and most vegetables as well and that helps for weight loss.

Calcium enhances the metabolism of fat cells, increases fecal fat excretion, and may prevent fat storage.

Calcium helps, but it's not the be-all-end-all. If you want to lose weight your diet and exercise regimen both need to be in order. And yes, you MUST have both to lose weight, keep it off, and maintain your weight within 5-10 pounds of your ideal, whatever that may be for your height and body frame. It's just like the ads for the diet pills -- if you read closely, you'll see that the people who lost all that weight were also on a strict regimen of diet and exercise when they took the pills. So don't look at calcium supplements as a magic cure. As a matter of fact, you're better off getting your calcium from your food than you are from a pill, so you'd be better off eating more low-fat or non-fat dairy products.

I've had my best luck with The South Beach Diet. In a nut shell, all you do is cut out sugars and carbohydrates (which become sugars) It's great if you want to lower cholesterol, blood sugar, and high blood pressure. I lost a bunch of weight with it, without exercise, and I feel great. You lose you're belly fat first. That diet with exercise and you'll be healthy and you'll lose a LOT of weight in a pretty short time. To Sarah C: Now that's something I gotta try!
