This is my theory and this is what works for me. Everyone is different so it may need to be adjusted to your own personal needs. Energy In/Energy Out Food Intake: 1,200 Per Day One Pound equals 3,500 Calories To loose one pound per day, You need to burn your food intake plus your one pound of fat 1,200 (intake) + 3,500 (Outtake) = 4,700 Calories Burn You must burn at least 4,700 Calories everyday to loose one pound at least. It is very easy to go up and beyond 4,700 calories each day. Best way to do this is to track your progress on a calorie counter monitor watch. If you do it by the numbers you can loose the weight. It is just a matter of changing the way you think about weight loss. Once you start wearing your calorie counter you can see the numbers increase and you fill find yourself doing extra things in your day, like tapping your foot while waiting at the light in your car, chewing gum, singing out loud and so on onto of your workout routines. You begin to see that everything you do in your day contributes to the overall numbers needed to loose that pound. I, myself, have done this recently. Two weeks later, I lost one pant size and 10 pounds. And that is just my current progress. I have used this method previously after childbirth and have gone from 168 to 127 pounds with in two months. I personally burn 1,000 calories by Walking in my community for one hour in the morning and I also burn 1,000 calories by simply using a stationary bike while playing xbox. I get so involved in playing xbox that I completely forget I am pedaling or working out. Think about it..How many hours have you spent playing video games..why not burn calories while you are doing it. ___ Water Intake/Less Storage Most people do not get enough water in their system. Water is your body's principal chemical component, comprising, on average, 60 to 80 percent of your weight. Every system in your body depends on water. For example, water flushes toxins out of vital organs, carries nutrients to your cells and provides a moist environment for ear, nose and throat tissues. Lack of water can lead to dehydration, a condition that occurs when you don't have enough water in your body to carry out normal functions. To determine if you are getting enough water use this simple formula.. Take your weight, for example 150 pounds and divide by 2. Take your answer which is 75 lbs and change it to ounces, in this case 75 ounces. That is how many ounces of water you need a day. Your body performs mostly on water. If you make sure you get enough water everyday your body will perform at top notch and your body will no longer have the cravings of junk food. You will have a better performing body system to help you work out and feel better thru out your day. ____ Good Food My favorite things to eat: Avocado Wraps Simple: Low Carb Tortilla, Half Avocado sliced, alpha sprouts, lettuce, soy bacon...Just wrap it up and eat. You can vary the things you put inside so long as you keep it to approx 4 or 5 items. You want to make sure they are fresh, low calorie and filling. Avocado and mushrooms can replace meats in your meal and still have great taste. Special K Cereals are fantastic. They have that sweetness that one craves and is so good for you. Calories are low. Great for even just dinner. First thing in the morning...A Glass of Chocolate Milk. Yup!! Chocolate Milk. We all crave that "got to have" item in the morning. Milk is the best thing you can have for yourself while working out. The chocolate (and you can use Carnation Instant Milk for this but I simply use Nestle dry mix) will give you that sweet "snack" that you need. If you give your body a little bit of it and its in a control way, you will not crave sweets and junk the rest of the day. Lean Cuisines Fantastic food! Each meal is approx 180 t0 380 calories per box. So think about your calories. 1,200...You can still have several of these meals a day and still be under your intake requirements. It’s all about the numbers and watching what you take in and what you burn out. And you know what..If you go over your 1,200 mark for food intake...that’s okay...you simple up your total calories burned for the day by what you took it. So long as you burn off the over all calories to be more than your food intake. Just make sure you stick too it so you can reach your weight loss goals. Fruits and Veggies All you want on the schedule listed below. Bananas are my favorite. They are very filling and can make a meal all on their own. ____ Vitamins My favorite is ONE A DAY WITH ENERGY...I am in love with this vitamin because I am just like everyone else who loves those quick fix energy drinks. But what people do not realize is that energy drinks can contain 120 to 440 calories in just ONE Can. If you think about it..That is HALF of your allowed calories for food intake. The best alternative I have found is One a day with energy vitamin. Easy to spot, it is packaged in a green label bottle. Just One vitamin a day will give you as much energy as approx. 1 1/2 cans of red bull...WITHOUT the calorie intake. WoW..now your making progress already because you have made more room in your intake calories for actual healthy food. _____ Soda/Carbonation Carbonation is terrible for your system because it bloats your stomach. And when your stomach bloats, your jeans just don't fit. You can drop one pant size simply by NOT drinking any carbonated drinks all together..Take away the bloat and you have instantly just made it one pant size lower. Besides, Sodas dehydrate you and with that One a Day Vitamin, you won't need the Caffeine in the soda and it will also cut out those extra calories that you don't need. So remove that soda and the energy drinks and just think how much calories you just instantly removed from your daily intake. I normally consume what...four sodas and two energy drinks in one day...that is a total of .... 900 calories. Of what??? Nothing...Those are horrible calories and calories that can be replaced by food which will fuel your body for your day and your workouts. ____ Your Body Your body is like a computer. You must program your body to do what it is suppose to do so it won't crash and leave you with a virus. Your stomach is only the size of your fist. So think about it right now, Look at your hand and close your fist. Not very big is it. That is how much food you actually ONLY need to eat, each time you eat for every meal. If you eat anything more than that, you will stretch out your stomach which causes overeating and overweight. What you need to do is eat every three hours, approx 5 to 7 times everyday around the same time. If you are always giving your body healthy and better food choices (the size of your fist) every three hours, your body will know you are giving it food. It will use that food properly. It will not go into starvation mode or store food away for later because it knows...it will get more in three hours. So what does your body do...it flushes everything out of your system because it doesn't need it.. Now it knows...you wont' forget about it and that food is on its way. ____ Walking Buddy This is the best thing especially for woman. Get a walking buddy. One hour everyday. Just think about how much talking, venting and laughing two woman can do together while walking and yup, you guessed it...it just burns more calories and reduces your stress. You now are more relaxed because you can talk and free yourself of whatever is frustrating you while getting into shape. : By: My own experience/Joyceeleann

Madison Originally Answered: What Is The Best Way To Lose Weight Quickly Without Any Machines Or Anything.I Need To Lose 30lbs! Please Help?
First of all, for most, it is a lot harder to lose weight than gain weight. Especially at your age, I suggest baby steps - not a "lose weight quickly" plan. I know that's not what you want to hear, but let me tell you a personal story: I was 13 when I decided I wanted to lose weight. I was probably the same height and weight as you too. I ate less and less and thought that once I hit my target weight I could start eating normally again. I lost 20 lbs and only about 1-2 pants size. So, in other words, I lost a lot of body water and muscle. Why? Because I was not nourishing my body to support my muscle mass and BECAUSE I LOST WEIGHT TOO QUICKLY. Out of frustration and malnutrition, I decided to eat whatever I wanted because it stopped working and my body was screaming at my brain to tell me to eat, eat, EAT! As a result, I gained it all back AND THEN SOME. I yo-yoed back and forth a little bit after that, finding healthier and more effective (and longer-term results) as time went on and I kept at it. Like you I started with very little knowledge about exercise or nutrition, but have done my homework and experimented with the things I learned. I will try to break down the essential bits of knowledge in a nutshell to help you get started: Exercise. In my opinion, strength training (push ups, crunches, lunges, etc.) is the most important thing you can do for long-term weight loss results, even more than cutting calories. Cardio (jogging, brisk walking, jump rope, biking, rollerblading, etc.) burns more calories in a shorter period of time to help burn away fat, but by itself it does not do enough to maintain muscle tone and doing too much cardio can cause your body to start attacking your muscle mass. You don't want your muscle to go away because that will slow your metabolism. Muscle is the key to a fast metabolism. Control your portions. Even with exercise, you can prevent weight loss or even gain weight if you reward yourself with the wrong kinds of or too much food. As your metabolism begins responding to the exercise, your body will eventually begin asking for more food to provide the energy to support your activity. If extra weight crept up on you, you were most likely eating too much, so it is vital for you to watch your portions whether you start exercising a lot or not. Try this: 15 servings of carbs (bread, rice, cereal, pasta, fruit, etc. at about 15 g carbs or about 70 calories per serving), 6 servings of protein (eggs, meat, nuts, etc. at about 10 g protein or 40 calories per serving), 12 servings of fats (nuts, butter, meat fats, egg fats, olive oil in cooking, etc. at 5 g fat or 50 calories per serving), and if you choose to track water intake try for 8 servings (8 oz or 1 cup per serving) each day. That's about 2000 calories per day, the recommended amount for most people. Start with that and give it at least a few weeks. If absolutely nothing happens, then cut down little by little, but you'll be surprised what eating the recommended 2000 calories is like. Since servings may vary (1 serving of carbs could be 1 or 2 slices of bread, depending on the brand), you'll have to familiarize yourself with the groceries you have at home. Outside of home, it's safe to guess - your (honest) estimates will break even at the end of the day - trust me. Let me give you an example of how to count your servings: Let's say you eat 2 eggs, 2 pieces of toast with about 2 tablespoons of peanut butter total, have a tall glass of 1% milk, and a banana for breakfast. Between the two eggs, thats about 1 serving of protein and 2 servings of fat. Each slice of bread has 100 cals, so 200 cals divided by 70 cals makes it about 3 servings of carbs. 2 tablespoons of PB has about 10 g protein and 15 g fat, so 1 serving of protein and 3 servings fat. A tall glass (2 cups) of 1% milk has about 30 g carbs, 20 g protein, and 5 g fat, so that's 2 servings carbs, 2 servings protein, and 1 serving of fat. A banana has about 30 g carbs, or 2 servings carbs. In all, you had: 7 servings carbs, 4 servings protein, and 6 servings fat. Does it sound like servings go fast? THEY DO! I kept track by filling in circles on my wrist or a little slip of paper in my pocket until I got the hang of it. :) Not sure about the nutritional facts of the Domino's pizza, Perkin's slice of pie, or leftover food your family brought home that you had? Try CaloriesPerHour.com and click on: Food Calories & Nutrition Calculator. There are also lots of other articles and things for educational purposes on that site. I love it! You can even keep track of your food on there. Anyhow, start with exercise and portion control, then read and learn from there. There's no quick and easy answer. Set small goals, like 1-2 pounds a week and build your progress from there. I commend you for wanting to live a healthy lifestyle, but don't let your family get to you. Whatever you do for your body is for you and only you. :) Good luck!

Eat 5 times a day, but very small meals and low carbs with more protien. work out 3 times a week w/ cardio and take 3 protein shakes a day. you will gain muscle mass, thus push off the fat and look freaken toned. No built muscles, no fat. Just toned like those victoria secret models. i had a personal trainer, i know!

Here are some good ideas: 1. Do something that gets your heart rate up a bit like, walking, running, biking, and swimming. 2. Eat Whole, Organic foods like: Broccoli, Cabbage, Organic Brown Rice, Beans, Spinach, Sweet Potato, Apples, and other fruits and vegetables in their Natural State. 3. Avoid eating corn, white bread, white rice, candy, sodas, chips, and anything else that you already know you shouldn’t be eating. 4. Drink clean water as your beverage of choice. Avoid Fruit drinks and fruit juices (unless YOU juice them yourself) 5. Stop smoking, drinking beer & wine, and drinking coffee. 6. Get 8 hours of sleep each night. 7. Hang out with people who want to be healthy. 8. Avoid anything with High Fructose Corn Syrup. Tone up the muscles: 1. Join a gym and get a trainer. 2. If you’re short on cash, start a light stretching & yoga regimen. 3. Do push-ups, and light dumbbell curls for the upper body. 4. As I said above, walk, run, swim, and or bike 5. Take an aerobics class, a yoga class, or some other fitness class. 6. Join the local YMCA.. 7. Buy or borrow this book by Bill Pearl called GETTING STRONGER. In the book, he describes everything you need for a great fitness plan. Mental Health: 1. Get a friend to talk to each day about your feelings. 2. If you have some money or insurance, get a counselor to talk to. 3. Learn how to meditate. 4. Join a support group for the issue you’re dealing with. 5. Ask your Higher Self (or God) for guidance. 6. Start keeping a diary or journal about your feelings & thoughts. 7. Write a ‘gratitude’ list every night. 8. Do something that makes you happy each day like: listen to your favorite music, draw, paint, write, or anything creative. 9. Do something for someone else who needs help. 10. If the above suggestions don't improve your mental health, talk with your therapist about the possibility of taking some medication. Take care of yourself Yam King

Elly Originally Answered: Im 5'2 and 13 i need to lose weight but how much wats the average weight for my height and age?
I'm 13 as well but i'm a bit shorter. I'm trying to lose weight as well and have the same problem. Don't do diets. I've tried but it's really hard especially for us 13 year old girls. Just try to eat healthier and do the usual 30 minutes of exercise everyday. It worked for me! except now i'm back to the unhealthy stage and trying to lose weight again. Try doing forms of exercise that are fun because you wont feel like exercising if it's boring! If you don't feel encouraged then ask a friend along for a jog or go swimming, or maybe some dance lessons. aAso when you're out with friends, try to bring some of your own healthy snacks along rather than buying maccas or something. All the little things count. My advice would be to exercise regularly by doing something you'll enjoy, eat healthily but dont go on a diet - you can still eat your favourite treats once in a while and if you want you can write a schedule for each day & maybe a menu or something. that's what i did for a while but then i got bored of it. Good luck
