Question: i use to be very underweight(89 lbs.) and 5 ft. 3 and i am a 15 yr. old grl. but before i became so unerweight i was abt 150 lbs.(and 5 ft. 1ish-2) then i was afraid of being so underweight at 89 lbs. i started eating and couldnt stop so now i am 107-110 lbs.(which i currently dont like at all) i am looking to lose atleast 10 lbs. so does anyone have any advice on how i can do this while toning up. I have already started eating healthy. Today i ate around 2000 calories. but am going to shift it down to 1200-1400. i couldnt work out today bc i had slightly twisted my ankle in soccer so i am just going to get up early 2morrow morning to work out for an hour on the tredmill(walking at a fast pace) then work out after school for an hour. And also do 200 jumping jacks along with 100 reverse crunches and light arm lifting. so does neone have any further advice for me. bc i am really down in the dumps.due to clothes not fitting right and all that jazz. so ne advice would be helpful. thanx!

Wow.. you kind of sound like me. I wasn't over weight before I got a eating disorder, but I wasn't skinny. I became extremely skinny.. then tried to get better and I gained all my weight back! Which is good...I guess.. since I wasn't fat in the first place. But I started feeling really fat and I decided to lose weight... but I did it in a more healthy weight. I started running 4 miles every day( welll five times a week..).. and eventually went up to 7. I lost 30 pounds quick! and I was eating a decent amount of food. Now I am a bit underweight but not too much. You are also a but underweight... but not by much. I really think you shouldn't lose anymore weight. BUT running is great because it takes away fat and turns it into muscle.. so your body will look really trim.. and you won't see fat! And muscle weighs more.. so you can be a decent weight.. but still look pretty damn thin!

http://www.consumer.gov/weightloss/bmi.h... Body Mass Index chart Muscle and Fitness Hers is a fabulous magazine with great exercise information and healthy eating recipes. Weight management is all about managing your incoming calories (food) with your outgoing calories (physical activity). 1200 - 1400 calories a day is NOT a lot of calories. I wear a monitor to tell me how many calories a day I burn. When I am seated, I burn about a calorie a minute. If you do the math, that's 1440 calories a day that I can burn while I am seated. SO, as an active 15 year old, 1400 calories is not enough to satisfy your needs. Don't starve yourself. All you do is make it easier to fall off the wagon, then when you do you stuff your face..... One important thing to remember - IT TAKES TIME. You cannot expect to wake up tomorrow skinny. It took time to put the weight on (whether you realized it or not), it takes time to take it off. Best Wishes!

I found the book to be very informative and easy to read. I've lost 17 pounds in 12 days, I'm just concerned that I'm losing too much weight, too quickly. I will admit I haven't followed the guide exactly. I'm not sticking perfectly to the listed foods and meal plans (but mostly) and doing very little exercise, but the weight keeps flying off. It clearly works and if I'd followed it exactly I think it would scare the living daylights out of me because of the amount that I'd lose. So thanks again for the information. I've never purchased anything like this before because they are usually full of trash, but 3WD has been a pleasant surprise. Get started today!

You need to keep eating...Keep your calories at 2000 and just do more aerobic exercise - it'll burn the calories and the fat. This way you'll be fit and toned rather than skin and bones....parden the pun. 5' 3 and 115 is perfect....I'm 5'5 and 120.

if you're going to be doing that much working out you should really concentrate on how you clothes fit rather than what the scale says. eat healthy and remember that muscle weighs more than fat!

You seem to have a sweet tooth… Do not eat anything that tastes sweet, or add extra sugar (especially fake sugar) for 3 weeks so your taste buds can readjust. Maybe start after Halloween because you don’t need Halloween to hit you in the face when you’ll be trying to overcome your cravings. Don’t beat yourself up if you have a few relapses (but don’t binge)…getting over a sugar addiction is like getting over a nicotine addiction. You never fail, just pick yourself up and go up the next step, under you finish climbing that staircase. Once your taste buds are readjusted, you’ll taste something sweet and think “how could I ever like that?” Don’t eat salads for dinner…summer is over. I had a 2 inches piece of kielbasa sausage with homemade vegetable soup yesterday and I’m having meatloaf and grilled potatoes tonight and I’m eating healthy. Do not have a “diet” diet, where you’re told what to eat, just eat healthy, have a simple healthy diet, so you can satisfy your cravings and you can answer your body’s need for some missing nutrients. Like if I’m building muscle mass, I’ll need a lot of carbs to do the weight training (because it’s anaerobic and fat burning shuts down) and then I’ll get huge cravings for eggs, nuts or a good juicy filet mignon (need for proteins for the “repairing stronger” part) otherwise, I would only eat eggs or meat like once a week. Eating healthy is about avoiding the unhealthy food as much as possible. Once you stay away from fast food (any restaurant food, really), packaged and boxed food (except for bread, pasta and rice, if you don’t make your own bread/pasta), canned food, prepared and processed food, then you’re left with the fruits/veggies, whole wheat food (the brown kind of bread, pasta), brown rice, lean meat and the good kind of oil (olive, avocado, nuts, fish). You can have any of the bad stuff occasionally so they don’t become forbidden obsessions. Have some French fries, or one slice of pizza (with your favorite veggies) or a cookie, once in a while. Just don’t do it every day and watch for portion sizes. Also the cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer (using water), a rotisserie (using heat and herbs), a slow cooker (using homemade broth and herbs), a pressure cooker, a grill… Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook. You should eat enough to cover your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) or your body will adapt to a low caloric intake and lower your metabolism, making it very hard for you to use your fat reserves. And then, as soon as you would eventually start eating normally again, you would make fat reserves very easily, because you would have a lower metabolism and therefore regain all the weight you lost and keep going up, unless you exercise A LOT. Women’s Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR): 655 + (4.35 x weight in pounds) + (4.7 x height in inches) - minus (4.7 x age in years) Don’t worry about which body parts what exercise will work. You’re more than the sum of your parts. Do whole body workouts so you get a balanced body. If you walk/jog, which is more about aerobics (for fat burning and cardiovascular health), it’s still somewhat of a lower body exercise so you need to compensate with whole body workouts (like swimming) or focus more on the upper body while doing weight training (calisthenics and using small weights). What exercises to do…for aerobics, anything you like and for which you can access. You’ll burn one pound of fat reserves for 3,500 calories of exercising. For weight training, look up calisthenics and using small weights and fell the burn. Ask specific questions to get specific answers, like asking about the THR zone (Target Heart Rate) while doing aerobics or the number of reps you should do while doing weight training.
