Try www.sparkteens.com. It’s a customizable weight loss planner based on your needs and its absolutely free. It works for me and is better than other weight loss sites because it focuses on your entire body, instead of just portions of your body.

Hi Luv-2-be-luvd. If you are looking for a weight loss plan then you need to be quick about it if you want to beat your summer rush.

Your best bet right now is to adjust your diet. Eat less of fatty food, eat more vegtables, drink lots of water and do what I call stair climbing or stair running for at least 30 minutes a day.

The most important consideration is your diet. Fine, I know you do not want to buy anything online, but you need to do a bit of research to educate yourself about diets out there that will suit you.

It will be worth while to check up a few weight loss websites online to help you make a wise decision about the best diet suitable for you.

in need of serious weight gain in arms?

due to having anorexia 2 years ago, i lost all my muscle mass in my arms and because of that, my arms keep me from being a normal proper weigh so I need to gain muscle but how dose a teenage girl do this? can someone tell me some exercises and meals plus extra supplements that would help me?

Maricela answers:

Eat normally, maybe consume a few more calories than usual. Lift some light weights to begin with and then gradually get heavier over the next few weeks. Exercise and eat healthy – DO NOT take weight gain/weight loss tablets…please don’t. A friend of mine took some weight gaining ones and went from being 140lbs to 190lbs in just a week….dangerous…unpredictable…not very safe.

Talk to your doctor about a diet and exercise plan as they will base it over your body type etc 🙂

Good luck !

Weight plays a major role in the mental and physical well-being of today’s teenager. The Weight-Control Information Network reports that an estimated 17.4 percent of teens were considered overweight or obese between 2003 and 2004. Given these statistics, achieving a healthy weight remains a challenge. As a developing teenage girl, you need the right nutrients to power you through sports, school work, part-time job and the everyday challenges of this life stage. Nutritious meals, family support and a positive environment complete the equation of healthy weight loss.

Choose Wisely
Teen girls need adequate nutrition to sustain growth and energy levels. The average teenage girl requires 1,800 to 2,100 calories per day, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s 2005 dietary guidelines. In an effort to manage your weight, don’t skimp on nutrients. The Weight-Control Information Network recommends a balanced meal plan consisting of fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains. The Nemours Foundation suggests that the fiber found in these disease-fighting foods curbs the temptation to pig out on high-calorie snacks. Don’t forget calcium-rich dairy and lean protein, each of which helps to build bone and repair tissue. Meanwhile, skip the empty calories from sodas and sweetened beverages. Both contribute to the weight problems of teens and adults.

George asks…

Can someone help, maybe a doctor. Should I be concerned?

hi I’m a 15 year old girl. lately I have been forgetting alot. Like things that happened the day before or in the morning. Also I have started to talk to myself which I never do. And I’ve been feeling really sad whenever I’m just by myself, I always think of sad things..should I be concerned about all this? Should I see a doctor? Am I depressed? I eat pretty well and excersize regularly, I’m kinda smart. Can someone please help even a little bit? Sorry this is long, thank you!!

Maricela answers:

Nutrition loss is the first and fore most reason for memory loss.

A teen whose diet lacks certain nutrients may exhibit memory problems. The brain requires a lot of energy from foods that bring oxygen and transport vitamins to the brain. Iron found in red meat, certain types of seafood, beans and dried fruits benefit memory functioning by bringing oxygen to the brain. The site lists vitamin B—found in foods like nonfat milk, yogurt, wheat germ, bananas, whole grains and green peas—as another nutrient related to memory. A diet that lacks healthy foods can cause the brain to work more slowly, affecting short-term memory.

Depression:—-

Dietary Changes may help for that….

A common clinical sign of depression in teenage girls is a change in appetite. Dietary change commonly presents as a loss of appetite. The change associated with eating patterns may be difficult to detect at the outset but become more pronounced over time, according to Gary Nelson writing in “A Relentless Hope: Surviving the Storm of Teen Depression.”

Sleep Problems

Teenage girls experience significant sleep disturbances when depressed. As is the case with adults, teenage girls find it difficult to fall or stay asleep. However, teenagers also tend to experience nightmares when depressed as well, according to “Overcoming Teen Depression: A Guide for Parents” by Miriam Kaufman.
