Topic: I'm 14. I need to lose weight and fast. By the end of the summer. 10-hopefully 25 pounds.?
April 24, 2019 / By Berta Question:
I'm 14 and over this whole school year, i've been gaining, and gaining, and I now weigh 170.
I just want to look good for the school year.
I just have liked video games... for my whole life... and honestly, sitting inside >_< doesn't help a thing, except I now have an unlimited amount of knowledge.
I can't buy anything... but what I can do is do some work outs everyday which will hopefully take away little by little
I was wondering if you had any kind of list of workouts I could do. Diets too.
YES, YES I KNOW.
Vegetables and eating healthy.
please, give me a few exercises and how long I should do it for, to lose something,
Sorry this is so straightforward.
Seeing these skinny people on TV and my friends every day its just really deppressing, seeing myself the biggest one of all of them.
it was just a sudden burst of motivation.

Here’s a good low-carb food/exercise plan:
Breakfast: Cook 9-grain cereal (from health food store) in water with rolled oats and wheat bran. Make a big pot of it on weekends and nuke 1/2 cup each morning. Add low fat milk or yogurt, banana, walnuts and berries. Drink hot Ovaltine. Breakfast should be your largest meal of the day to raise blood sugar level which falls during the night.
Lunch: Egg, tuna or turkey ½ sandwich on whole grain (not just whole wheat) bread with bean or alfalfa sprouts, yogurt, fresh fruit. If you had meat loaf for dinner, bring a meat loaf sandwich on whole grain bread (NO mayo). On cold days, a squatty thermos of hot chili, split peas with ham, or beef stew.
Snacks: Fresh (not canned) fruit. Nothing ever from a vending machine.
Dinner: salad with white meat chicken and fresh (not canned) veggies: tomatoes, 2 kinds of lettuce, 2 kinds of shredded cabbage, shredded or sliced carrots, alfalfa or bean sprouts, zucchini, green or red peppers, hard boiled eggs, brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, tofu, cottage cheese...Instead of dressing, squeeze 1/4 tomato over it.
Or homemade bean/vegetable soups; great way to recycle leftovers.
Or grilled fish with steamed veggies.
Or omelet: In blender, whip together eggs, tofu, cottage cheese, onions, garlic powder. Cook with mushrooms, chopped tomatoes and green or red peppers.
Avoid junk food, fast foods, pastries, desserts, anything with sugar (cancer cells feed on sugar), gluten, syrup (even canned fruit in syrup), peanut butter, fat/grease (pork, wieners, chops, bacon, salami, pizza, chips, fries), pasta, potatoes, ramen, popcorn, white bread, rice, canned veggies, ice cream, soda, chips, tobacco, alcohol and coffee. No oil except olive and mac nut.
To keep your skin clear, drink water, tea, unsweetened veggie and fruit juice.
Join a gym; they have all the equipment and staff to show you how to use it to get the look you want to achieve, but you have to ask them. Much cheaper than buying your own equipment. Go hiking, biking, jogging, bowling, swimming, rowing, jump rope, play tennis, badminton, volleyball, soccer, jumping jacks, lift weights, trampoline? To tone your tummy, do sit ups, push ups, pull ups, leg lifts, butt raises and crunches.
For more energy, take Super B complex. Take appetite suppressants.
LOVE WHAT YOU ARE EMBRACE WHO YOU YOU ARE YOU don,t look at the media and think the way you look is wrong YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL THE WAY YOU ARE
Running works wonders, when first starting off it will be tough but you will get better I promise. I know you know this but stop eating so much. Peanuts are calorie packed don'T eat them, any sort of snacks healthy or not is not helping, your going to be hungry the first couple of days but you will adjust. skip lunch every other day and just eat an apple. drink a glass of water before meals to fill you up. Soda and juice are terrible for you drink water. Losing weight is hard I tried and succeeded. If you really want to loose weight you can. Lastly look at the nutrition facts dont eat a lot of protein or carbs in the fourm of suger. Some foods that are unhelthy you might not know about are: muffins, fruit drinks (ex: naked), granola bars, veggie chips, white bread, any drink but water. Bottom line eat less food and eat lower calorie food and work out. There is no pill or secret or excuse that will make it easy. You know what to do and its up to you to say no to bad food and stay strong when hungry.
Breakfast. Special k
Lunch. Apple or half of a whole what turkey sandwich
Dinner. Eat normal but not like a pig
Remember to drink water before lunch and dinner to fill you up
Don't give your self an eating disorder kids develop them more then you think, if you feel very weak take the diet and exercise slower then speed it up
invest in a standing desk like the ergotron workfit s 379 ergotron com or get crafty and raise your monitor and keyboard with books
odds are you re eating too fast try holding a conversation while having a meal so you re not gulping down more than you need to feel full
if your lifestyle or career includes a lot of socializing out at dinners or drinks start scheduling workout dates with friends co workers or even clients

Weight loss is an overall process and there are no magic answers. Pay no attention to weight loss supplements and pills and all the latest fads. You need to think about many factors but most of them are related to issues we've known about for a very long time. There are many sensible things you can do that will make a tremendous difference over the long term if you need to lose weight. It can be done in a healthy way. This is what has worked for me.
Keeping a food journal really does help. It will give you a much better sense of how much you are eating, and when, and why.
Make a few additional small changes - walk everywhere, always use stairs instead of elevators, walk on escalators, get up and move around at least once an hour if your work or your life in general is sedentary, walk every day, use a pedometer. Walking 10,000 steps a day is a really good idea. Build up to a long brisk walk everyday, or most days. Be more active and watch less TV and spend less time on the computer. Buy one piece of exercise equipment to have at home and be strict with yourself about using it. Sometimes you can find mini-steppers or exercise bikes at second hand stores and thrift stores for just a few dollars.
Start a weight lifting routine. Join a gym. Possibly you can find one that has someone who specializes in weight lifting programs for beginners. Weight lifting will increase your metabolism as well as improve posture and appearance overall. Even if you can't get to the gym you can work out at home using things around the house. Invest in a good weight training book. The Dummies series actually has a good one.
In terms of diet, cut out or reduce things like junk food, pop, fat, fast food. Eat more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean meat, fish. Particularly if you choose a vegetarian lifestyle include natural peanut butter, hummus, dried fruit and nuts. Pay close attention to getting the nutrients your body needs to be healthy.
Make your portion sizes smaller. Use a smaller plate - in our society we have become accustomed to thinking that we need a large plate of food at every meal, and we don't. About quarter of your plate of food should be protein and at least half of it should be veggies.
Learn to count calories. At your current weight and activity level, you may possibly need about 2000 calories or more to maintain your current weight. So you will lose weight at a reasonable and healthy rate if you cut back to about 1600 or 1700 calories a day.
Eat small amounts frequently, rather than three large meals. Never skip breakfast. Include some protein in your breakfast. It will help get you through the day.
Drink plenty of water, at least 8 big glasses of water a day, and more if it is very hot, if you sweat a lot, or if you are exercising intensely, and eliminate fruit juices. Fruit juices have too many calories, so get your vitamins from fresh fruit, not the juice. You will begin to see changes in your body.
Vary your routines. Don't eat the same number of calories every day (vary your calories from 1400 a day to 1900 or 2000 some days), eat a variety of foods, and do different kinds and amounts of exercise. You will lose weight much more efficiently if you mix things up from time to time so that your body doesn't adjust to any one routine.
An area that many people overlook is getting enough sleep. You are much more likely to overeat or to binge eat if you are tired and not well rested, so get enough sleep.
Check out websites about nutrition, exercise, weight training, etc. Here are a few helpful links.
