Maricela answers:

People who want to lose weight commonly, and first of all, think about reducing the amount of food they eat. This may be quite a solution but not exactly the best there is. In fact, depending on the amount you reduce in your food intake, it may even be dangerous to one’s health. So how does one lose weight effectively and safely? Here are some points one should consider when trying to lose weight:for more info…

Healthy weight loss for a teenage girl?

I need a long-term healthy way to loose weight.

I really am overweight & i’m worried about my health.
Please help me.

Maricela answers:

Hi 🙂
Im also 15 and i last September i weighed 145 pounds and lost 33 pounds and i now weigh 112.
To loose weight it is very simple. Don’t listen to diets or plans or anything. Just be natural .
Ill give you my best tips :

-eat smaller and healthier portions throughout the day but more frequently (ex- eat 5 meals a day but make your meals half the size) this will speed up your metabolism and
-drink TUNS of water
-walk every day for 30 min, and also do a 30 min workout thats high impact on the body (dance, ect.)
-Pick 1 day on the weekend and 1 day in the week to take a break from your workouts
-Pick 1 day each week to indulge and not worry about your diet (make sure its only one day a week and it will not affect you at all)
-do not pick at food! Put what your gonna eat in your plate and don’t eat anything else! Especially when making the food.

Hope i helped:)

Joseph asks…

Whats the easiest and best way tolose ten to fifteen pounds and how long will it take?

Maricela answers:

Ok this is a really really long answer, but please give it a chance because it really works, it worked for me and lots of people I know. Don’t get mad that this is so long hahaz its mostly just lots and lots of tips! Also this is written for like the teenage girl so if you’re an adult than some of this may be irrelavant to you- like the area about Seventeen mag- but there are adult magazines out there that are good for excersizes too. You probably are not a guy lol but if you want to give a guy advice from this some might not be relevant like the bikini and shoes part lol.. Ok back to the answer:

I had the same problem. . But it’s acutally pretty easy to lose it and easier than you think. You just have to be patient and don’t give up because it really does work. Okay well I find that weight loss is easiest with an elliptical trainer (google it if you don’t know what it is. You prob will once you see a picture of it). Treadmills are great for fast results but running is very tiring and hard to do for a long period of time, while ellipticals aren’t tiring- you work up a sweat but don’t usually get out of breath. If you only have a treadmill and you can’t get an elliptical than work your way up to thirty minutes- start off with 15, than 20, or something like that.. It is really important.

Do you get a subscription to Seventeen? They have great workouts in there that you can follow. Here’s what I do. I try to go on my ollyptical for 30 minutes each day (I do it at night but that might not be a good idea if excersize makes you not be able to sleep. For me it makes me tired but it makes some people less tired!) Also you can listen to music while you work out- it makes fun! And the best part is that with ollpytical trainers you never actually run out of breath but you work up a sweat.

Anyway, after you do that, do the workout in your Seventeen. If you don’t get Seventeen, then you can find great workouts at their website or somewhere online. And they are strength workouts not cardio so its more like building your abs (which I admit is like torture- side planks, v-sits, and more) but definetly works. There is also leg, butt, and arm excersizes you can do. You don’t have to do the strength workouts but they help to build muscle and increase stamina so it is better for you in the long run, so if you want to do them at all the best time is after you have worked out so that you are already sweaty and your heart is already pumped up and you are more flexible.

Don’t forget to stretch when you are done excersizing, whether or not you do the strength training. Stretching is impt. Because it helps you cool down and it helps prevent injury or muscle strain so that your muscles won’t be sore the next day. Honestly you don’t have to work out every night, it’s best to do this 3-4 times a week instead of every night. But if you really want to see results fast, then do it as much as you can.

. Also for what do you eat, my biggest setback on eating is that whenever I eat cereal I always have 2 bowls which is not that healthy cuz cereal is starch. Try to not have a lot of starch-bread, pasta, potatoes. Ik it sucks but starch turns right in to sugar or fat so it’s not really healthy. So replace some starch with protein like nuts, fish, meat, chicken, beans, and more. If you are vegetarian there are lots of protein choices that is not meat. Eat a lot of fruits and veggies they are delicious and really healthy. Breakfast in a hurry make sure to eat cereal and fruit. If you don’t have time bring a banana and a granola bar. For lunch if you are at school you can pack celery and peanut butter. It is actually really good! Or carrots and ranch.Something healthy! Pack your lunch with 2 healthy things and allow yourself to pack one thing not so healthy like potato chips or cookies. For dinner try to eat less rice, bread, potatoes, and pasta because again they are starch.

. If you like to eat Chinese or Indian food (both yummmm and Chinese can be healthy as long as it’s not fried, but stir-fried- which is not really frying, its just called that. And in Indian food watch out for creamy things like Butter chicken- omg. That is the best stuff in the world! But it’s not very healthy, but most Indian food is b/c of all the vegetables.) then you probably will have a lot of rice, so try to eat less starch after that. ALso like if you are dying for a bagle then by all means have one but since a bagel is like 500 calories, and all of that starch, you can’t have a lot of starch after that. I think you know what I mean.

Maricela answers:

If you want to lose weight get your diet in order, make sure your staying away from saturate fats and fast digestive carbs like white bread etc. Eat plenty of veggies and healthy fats like almonds. For your excersise probably a brisk walk on an incline or a light jog for about 30 minutes
