I Need Some Help With Weight Loss?

Postby Cristobal » Mon Oct 02, 2017 12:30 pm

i'm currently 15 years old, almost 16. 5'1'', and about 150 pounds. my bmi 28.3, meaning that i'm overweight (obviously). i'd like to get down to a healthy weight of around 115-120...and if at all possible, i'd like to lose most, if not all, of this weight by Christmas when i'm getting together with my entire family.


but how should i go about losing this weight?

i've heard a lot about the south beach diet. a lot of people in my family tried it and had amazing results. the book says that you lose about 14 pounds in the first 2 weeks. if i stay on phase one a little longer, will i still lose a pound/day?

people have told me to start with a cleansing diet before i go into an actual "diet". what are some good cleansing diets out there? preferably one that only last a day or two.


what should i do about exercise? i have access to a treadmill, elliptical, bike, stair climber-ish thing, bowflex and free weights. where do i start??

any other weight loss tips are greatly appreciated!!

also, if anyone has some good recipes for South Beach Phase 1, please send them to me. =]

you are loved.

turn dinner into a healthy lunch the next day by wrapping your lean leftovers in a whole wheat wrap add a little dijon mustard or curry powder for added flavor

when out at a restaurant ask the server to hold the bread snack mix or chips and salsa that might come before the meal if you re hungry youll be tempted

forget the dried cranberries which have added sugar and add a half cup of fresh berries to top off your salad

I don't think a specific "Diet" is a good idea. hungrygirl.com has really good low calorie recipes. Stick to diet soda, water, tea, and coffee. You don't want to drink your calories! As for excercising, just start running on the treadmile for an hour every day for like half an hour. You'll burn lots of calories and get more energized!

Make sure your breakfast is a balanced one and includes at least eight grams of fiber
