So, im a teenage girl, and i dont do any activities. Im not fat, but i would like to lose abit weight and stay healthy, and i wanna go to training/an activity, but i dont know where. I dont live in the biggest city ever, but i still have some opportunities. I dont like dancing and stuff, and im under 16 so i dont know if gym is possible for me …

Maricela answers:

Weight loss is over 80% diet so exercise barely makes a difference. Its good for you yes but its not the main way to lose weight.

I have no idea how much you weigh and don’t know how much you want to lose but you can lose up to 20 lbs in 2 weeks on the Smoothie Shakedown. It is not dangerous. You have 2 smoothies a day plus a solid meal. You have one or two snacks plus you drink a lot of water. If you don’t lose the full 20 lbs in 2 weeks, you take a break for a week but eat healthy and don’t binge. Then you do another 2 weeks. You repeat this cycle until you lose all of your weight. It is quite possible for you to lose 20-30 lbs in a month like this is you are super strict and do not cheat at all.


After you lose all of your weight, adopt a paleo/primal life. It is the easiest way to maintain weight without ever feeling deprived.


Yes you cut out grains and gluten, most sugar, heavy carbs but you will not miss them if you do it correctly and being slim and in shape will be worth it all. You can find a lot of delicious recipes on dessert and chow stalker plus if you just google paleo/primal versions of your favorite foods.

For exercise you don’t need to join a gym. You can go on long walks and jogs and workout in your own bedroom or living room. There are so many great programs out there such as Physique 57, Ballet Body from Leah Sarago, Winsor Pilates, Insanity, Tonique, Cardio Barre, Pop Physique, Addicted to Sweat, Ballet Beautiful, Core Fusion, Zcut, Power Yoga with Rodney Yee etc… All of these give you full body workouts and these are just some of my favorites. There are many programs out there that you can find suited to your tastes if you take the time to look around online and read descriptions + reviews.

Good luck.

Paul asks…

Whos sick of being told what body image is right?

Most models these days look like skeletons, starve them self, and now teenage girls and even boys are doing it.

It doesnt look good, it looks discusting they look like skeletons.

And now even my friends (15) are looking at girls with perfect bodies, not big not skeletons, and saying that those girls are too big!?!?

wat do you guys think?

Maricela answers:

Really, everyone needs to realise that when they feel insecure, it’s a mental thing and weight loss won’t do much.
I’ve always been pretty thin (runs in the family), but I see all these unnatural dieting habits and when you read about those anorexic and bulimic models, you think, is being a size zero or whatever worth all this? It really sucks too, that young people have to live through all the harm that media do! They’ve just got to keep strong!
As long as you’re happy and healthy, you’re good just the way you are 🙂

William asks…

Whats the difference between anorexia and wannorexia?

they both seem like da same disease 2 me…

Maricela answers:

Wannarexia, or anorexic yearning,is a label applied to someone who claims to have anorexia nervosa, or wishes they did. These individuals are also called wannarexic “wanna-be ana” or “anorexic wannabe”. The neologism wannarexia is a portmanteau of the latter two terms. It may be used as a pejorative term.
Wannarexia is a cultural phenomenon and has no diagnostic criteria, although some wannarexics may be instead diagnosed with eating disorder not otherwise specified (EDNOS). Wannarexia is found in teenage girls who want to be popular, and is likely caused by a combination of cultural and media influences.
Dr. Richard Kreipe states that the distinction between anorexia and wannarexia is that anorexics aren’t satisfied by their weight loss, while wannarexics are more likely to derive pleasure from weight loss.[3][8] Many people who actually suffer from the eating disorder anorexia are angry, offended, or frustrated about wannarexia.
Wannarexics may be inspired or motivated by the pro-anorexia, or pro-ana, community that promotes or supports anorexia as a lifestyle choice rather than an eating disorder. Some participants in pro-ana web forums only want to associate with “real anorexics” and will shun wannarexics who only diet occasionally, and are not dedicated to the lifestyle full-time. Community websites for anorexics and bulimics have posted advice to wannarexics saying that they don’t want their “warped perspectives and dangerous behaviour to affect others.”

Nancy asks…

how to be a healthy teenage girl and lose weight?

Okay so my doctor told me I need to lose weight if I want to avoid future health risks that run in my family. I’m 15 years old and am 5′ 2″ and I weigh 155 pounds. I need a full body workout that contains: Abs, chest, back, legs, thighs, butt, and arms. I have three different weights at home: 3lbs, 5lbs and 15 lbs. I also have a yoga mat, bike and a bands use for stretching exercises. I’d like to get down to 115-120(My doctor said it was a suitable weight loss goal). If you have any advice for diet as well that would be much appreciated.(Let it be known, I’m a vegetarian) If you could also give me an average of how many hours of sleep I should get each night and how much water I should drink, that would be greatly appreciated. If you could tell any vitamins I should be taking a day that would also be appreciated. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Maricela answers:

Only drink water or green tea or black coffee but preferably 8 glasses of water a day.

Try eating as much unprocessed foods as posssible and natural ones like fruit, veges etc. Wholegrain bread is best and brown rice and pasta are good carbs. For protein a small handful of unsalted nuts and low fat dairy products are good. Lentils and tofu are great as well. If you eat fish, salmon, tuna and white fish is great

aim for 30 mins of excersise 4 days a week and try for 9 hours of sleep each night. Lots of the vitamins you need should be coming from the foods you eat. Iron is in dark leafy greens like spinach.
Good luck!

Mary asks…

How can a teenage girl get a flatter stomach and flat abs FAST?

Maricela answers:

It all depends upon what you are willing to do.

Diet: The most effective, cheapest, and healthiest diet is vegan

Cardiovascular training is the best way to go to increase your stamina and lose weight. You should probably be using a bike or an elliptical rather than running or the treadmill (high impact). Work in the heartrate range of 65% to 85% of (220-age). If you do not have a heart rate monitor, you should buy one. Polar is the best brand. Start of with about 20 min toward the low end of the range and gradually increase until you can do 90 minutes.

Do it as often as you can, every day would be great. Do not plan on off days because those will come up anyway.

There is no such thing as spot reduction. You can exercise other areas to tone them if you want but weight loss is all over. We have a genetic tendency to gain weight in certain areas but losing it is everywhere and involves all tissue types, not just fat. Bummer but the world is not fair.
