How to Lose Weight As a Teenager

If you’re tired of feeling down about your weight, this is a really good way to help yourself along the way to a healthy body! Or perhaps your parents/peers are nagging you about your double chin? Lose weight, read this article and take the advice into consideration. It may be harder to lose weight as a teen because of all the goodies you see in the lunch room, or when you see your friends eating pizza. It is going to be hard, that’s for sure, but if you are really determined and motivated, then you can do it! Follow these simple steps and you be there in no time at all! But remember, don’t overdo it because that is unhealthy! Be strong! Not weak! Do it and don’t give up!

Make a Goal! Start with something simple, don’t start off with a ridiculous goal that you’ll never achieve, as you’ll just feel bad when you don’t get there.

Make a plan! Look at your calendar and find some spare time, after school or sports practice and add an exercise routine to fill the gaps.

Healthy Eating

Consume healthy foods and do not skip meals. Eat five SMALL meals each day, every 3-4 hours. Your blood sugar level will be steady, and you will not feel as hungry.

Eat at the table, not standing up. Have one specific place where you will eat all your meals (unless you are out with friends). This keeps you from eating food mindlessly in front of the TV. Take time to chew, count to 30 for each bite. Chewing more can help you lose weight. You will find that you will get full faster, and will not have to eat as much.

Don’t eat from 9pm to 6am. This will keep your body on a schedule. Because your metabolism isn’t high at night (especially when you are sleeping), it also means your body won’t be eating food when it can least digest it.

When you snack, choose healthy fruits and vegetables rather than candy or chips. If you really hate veggies, get some fat free dressing to go with it, or instead opt for the new low-fat chips that have recently appeared these days. Light yogurt helps boost up your metabolism and tastes great. Popcorn, minus added salt or butter, are excellent munchies. It is full of fiber.
