How can I lose weight? Topic: How can I lose weight?
May 20, 2019 / By Betsy
Question: I'm 16 years old, I weigh 183 pounds. I feel not so comfortable with my weight and I am willing to lose it. Plus I think I need to lose it, I'm 5'7 so I don't really think I'm overweight for my height but still. I think my best bet is walking, each time increasing my time and distance. (maybe speed) But anymore suggestions? Like maybe climbing stairs? I can't exactly visit a gym so I was thinking do it on my own outside. And what are some good diets to follow? Good foods to eat and such.

Losing 10 lbs a month is a good and safe target. Any faster weight loss is likely to be temporary only and in most cases you regain it all. Running, jogging, cycling, swimming, dancing, push ups, sit ups, squats, brisk walking and power walking all help for weight loss but dieting helps more. One of the healthiest weight loss diets is the DASH diet. The healthy DASH diet can help you lose weight safely and effectively, lower your cholesterol and lower your blood pressure. It is based on an eating plan rich in fruits and vegetables, and low-fat or non-fat dairy, with whole grains. It is a high fiber, low to moderate fat diet, and is rich in potassium, calcium, and magnesium. You can see further details in a web search for "dash diet" + "lose weight".

In order to lose weight you want that heart rate up. So instead of doing that huge workout you listed at once here is an easier way. First thing is you want to mix cardio and strength up so I would do 6 sets of 25 jumping jax 12 push ups modified or regular 12 crutches Then your jog and place for 2 minutes Twice a day... Take a cold- warm shower afterward You want carbs and calories in your diet that's your energy you just gotta learn how to count them well try to avoid fats, red meat and breads like spagetti and pasta also lots and lots of protein your tearing down muscles and you need the protein to build them back stronger

Try joining Slimming World or Weight Watchers. Check out their websites for more information; they have many success stories including my dear old mum. If you have an XBox 360 buy a Kinect. My son has one and the wife uses the 'Zumba' game and she's lost a few pounds with it. Bear in mind that an hour a day on that game will make you sore and stiff (ahem) at first. Walk everywhere and try to walk at a brisk pace. Run up and down the stairs. Buy a bike and go out on rides with your mates (don't go to the pub for a drink on long trips though ;) ). Stop drinking soft fizzy drinks and smash the water instead. Replace junk food with healthy snacks like pretzels and Snack-A-Jacks (yes, they really do exist). Try to eat five fruit and vegetables a day and all that stuff. There's a good British site called 'NHS Change 4 Life' which suggests small lifestyle changes with big long term benefits. How's about that then?!? Good luck.

Go on a Vegetarian diet. It is good and healthy. I suggest running in the afternoon and then walk for 20 or 30 minutes each day. Then increase the running minutes. Doing cardio really helps a lot.
