Diet/weight loss help for a teenage girl?

I have always been a little insecure about my weight. I have tried to loose weight before unsuccessfully. I am a 6’2 sixteen year old girl and I weight about 200 pounds. But I am very muscular from playing sports and stuff. If anyone could give me some tips on how loose a few pounds that would be great!

Hi That’sMe..

🙂

Want to lose weight? Ok..Here are some tips:
WAKE-UP DRINK: As soon as you rise, drink two 8-ounce glasses of filtered or spring water. Squeeze half a lemon into one of those glasses; the lemon stimulates your digestive juices. Your goal is to drink at least six glasses of water by the end of the day. If you have trouble remembering how much you drank, keep track in your journal.

BREAKFAST: Between 7 and 8 a.m., eat one piece of fresh fruit like an apple, pear, or banana. Fifteen to 30 minutes later, eat 1 to 2 cups of cooked whole grains like amaranth, buckwheat, brown rice, millet, or quinoa. (This delay aids your digestion.) Avoid barley, corn, oats, rye, and wheat; many people experience congestion, poor digestion, and other symptoms when they eat these grains. To prepare most of the grains, you’ll add them to boiling water, reduce the heat to a slow simmer, and cook them covered for 30 minutes or more until they’re tender. (For exact instructions, consult the packaging.) You may want to prepare several servings ahead of time and reheat them in the morning.

To flavor your grains, add 2 tablespoons of 100 percent fruit juice or I teaspoon of an oil and butter mix per serving. To make this mix, combine 1/4 cup of extra-virgin olive oil or cold-pressed canola oil and 1/2 cup (1 stick) of room-temperature butter. Store it in the refrigerator. Use a maximum of 3 teaspoons a day. The fats in this mix keep your tissues healthy as you detox, and butyric acid, a compound in butter, helps heal and protect cells in your stomach and intestines.

With your grains, take a multivitamin and additional supplements to get 200 to 400 IU of natural vitamin E (d-alpha tocopherol) and 100 to 200 mcg of selenium. These antioxidants fight the free radicals your body produces as you detox. Taking supplements with food prevents the nausea you may suffer if you consume them on an empty stomach. If you usually take other supplements, continue to take them unless they contain caffeine.

MIDMORNING SNACK: Around 11 a.m., sip 1 to 2 cups of the vegetable water left over from steaming your lunch and dinner. (For more on the steaming process, see “Lunch,” next page.) You should reheat this water and can season it with a dash of salt. The broth provides valuable nutrients that separate from the vegetables during steaming, eases hunger pangs, and keeps you hydrated (it counts toward your daily fluid consumption). Next, take 500 to 1,000 mg of vitamin C powder buffered with calcium and magnesium. You’ll find this powder at natural food stores; choose a brand that’s free of sugar and artificial sweeteners. Mix it with 6 ounces of water and drink. Vitamin C, an antioxidant, neutralizes free radicals produced as you detox, and calcium and magnesium help ease any agitation you may feel as you withdraw from addictive substances like caffeine or sugar.

LUNCH: Between noon and 1 p.m., eat steamed vegetables. You can make them the night before or in the morning and reheat them at lunch. Save the water from the steaming process in a covered container and refrigerate it.

To make your lunch, steam up to 4 cups of raw vegetables in at least 2 cups of water until they’re tender but still crisp. Prepare at least four vegetables for each meal, aiming for a variety of flavors, textures, and colors. For example, try a starchy vegetable like a potato, a bitter green like kale, a sweet vegetable like red bell pepper, and a pungent vegetable like scallions.

I hope you’ll try.. 🙂

Weight Loss tips for teenage girl?

Hi, I am looking for a diet/exercise plan. I am 5’5 and 140 pounds but a lot of it is muscles in my legs. I still want to slim down my stomach a little. I have really muscular thighs from swimming but I don’t swim anymore so I want to slim them down. What are some good exercises I can to to trim down my stomach and slim my thighs. I’d also like to work my glut.

Maricela answers:

Concentrate on losing/burning fat. When you lose fat you will achieve the toned look, look slimmer, leaner and overall better. You can try P90X , but P90X costs $125 and it takes 90 days for results. A better, faster and free program is the specialized fat burning program called the Fat X 12 fat burning workout and diet program. It’s a 12 day workout and diet plan you can cycle as many times a you want. The workout videos and diet are free on the Fat X 101 blog. It’s an awesome program to burn fat and tone up! Good luck!

Weight loss tips for teenage girl?

I’m 15, a girl, and I weigh 235. I recently joined the Y and am working out there. I just don’t know how many times a week I should be going? Also, any ideas for a routine I could follow? I also need to know; what are the best foods to lose weight, and what foods should I avoid?
Thanks

Maricela answers:

Well you don’t want to overdue it, it can ruin your body.
Maybe start of going to the gym 3-4 times a week for an hour doing different types of cardio.
Then when it gets easier, or after a couple weeks, go more or go longer so so your body gets adjusted.
Eat a lot of protein, DON’T cut out carbs from your diet, your young and need them since you are exercising.
Maybe eggs(egg whites are healthiest) in the morning and some toast and fruit.
Avoid sugary cereals and donuts, bagels, pastries (SUGAR)
peanut butter with toast or a banana is good too.
Lunch have like lean meat. Turkey chicken ham. Dont have chips, cookies, sugary granola bars, fruit snacks, etc. Have some fruits and veggies too. Have LIGHT cheese. No mayo, or other fatty dressings.Sometimes Maybe a salad with grilled chicken, veggies and fruit if you want too. No croutons, fatty dressing ONLY LIGHT.
Snack on fruit, nutritional granola bars, Almonds are really good too (the 100-calorie pack) Light popcorn. Low fat yogurt too.
Dinner, DO NOT fry or batter your meat. GRILL. Cookin light oil. Dont butter your pasta or rice, if so, Spray no calorie butter. But dont have that too much. Add veggies, or a small salad.

AVOID high calorie foods. Chips(doritos lays cheetos, etc) avoid icecream, cookies. Try to avoid too much pizza. White bread and white pasta (WHEAT!)

good luck(:

Maricela answers:

Since ur only 15, dnt take pills or go on fad diets. They rnt good 4 any1, especially kids & teens. Just follow these tips:

DIET:
-Drink water! U get a ton of extra calories from soda and sugary juice! So make a commitment to drink nothing but water and milk

-Eat 3 cups of veggies and 2 cups of fruit every day. It’s easier to resist junk food if ur already full with healthy food

-Don’t eat after 10:30 pm! Usually ppl pick the worst snacks when its late and theyre tired

-Eat 5 times a day, 3 meals and 2 snacks. It’s healthier to eat multiple smaller meals

-Order kids portions when u eat out. Usually restaurants give 2 big of a portion size.

-Eat lean proteins, like turkey, chicken, or fish.

-Obviously, cut out cookies chips and candy.

EXERCISE:
-jog for about 10-20 minutes 3-4 days a wk

-after jogging do 30 moves to target each body part (ex: 30 crunches for abs, 30 push ups for arms, 30 lunges for legs, and 30 squats for booty). Customize this routine depending on how ur body is shaped (ex: do more push ups if u hav rly chubby arms)

-stretch before and after working out to avoid being sore and pulling a muscle

-drink lots of water! Dehydration is not only bad for ur skin, hair, heart and lungs, it makes u burn fat slower!

HERE’S A MORE SPECIFIC PLAN:

Breakfast:
eat a serving of whole grain (like cheerios or waffles) with a cup of skim milk, and a cup of fruit

Lunch:
have sumthing filling with protein, whole grains and vegetables (like a sandwich or chicken salad with croutons). Try to get at least 2 servings of each and drink water

Snack:
eat something with filling protein and a serving of fruit (like an apple with peanut butter or peanuts and raisins) and whole grain crackers or pretzels with cheese. Drink water.

Dinner:
start your dinner small salad. Then eat 2 servings of grains (like pasta or rice), and 2 servings of protein (like chicken or fish)

Snack:
eat something light with calcium like pudding or yorgurt

EAT THIS IS WORKOUT 3-4 TIMES A WEEK AND YOU’LL LOSE WEIGHT IN NO TIME
