Can anyone help me with an exercise plan/healthy diet/lose weight?

I want to lose weight, but I don’t want to go on a diet. I just want to eat healthily and exercise regularly. I’ve got an 8ft trampoline but it doesn’t seem to do anything for weight loss.

I’ve got a few problems though:

1) 5 portions of fruit and veg a day:
The only fruit I like is grapes.
The only veg I like are carrots (cooked), turnips, and sprouts

2) I haven’t got enough money to join a gym or anything

3) My parents don’t let me go outside of the garden as they say it’s not safe. Therefore I can’t go on a bike ride or a run.

I want to tone my thighs, bum and belly as well as losing weight and becoming fit.

What exercises can I do to help achieve this?


I’m 15, 5ft 4inches.

    you say your parents won’t let you go outside of the garden how old are you? and do you need to lose weight or are you still growing?

    I also wonder how old you are and if you truly need to diet? Either way, a great resource that is online & free with lots of great information is Check it out, I’m sure you will find what you’re looking for there.

    Hey! Stop eating radioactive Skittles! I’m just joking, I couldn’t resist! I think it’s a cute name. OK, to tone your thighs and backside, lunges, lunges, lunges! For your belly, sit ups, lots of sit ups. A trampoline seems alright, but I would think it would take forever to lose weight bouncing on it. Why can’t you go in your garden? Why can’t you ride your bike? Does your school have a gym (I’m assuming you are in high school?) If so, ask your gym teacher if you can come in the morning before school starts to get a workout in. Most teachers are cool with that. You need to learn to like more fruits and veggies, also. Your diet plays a bigger role in losing weight. You can actually lose weight without exercising if your diet is right (coming from my personal trainer husband!) Going off of the info that you posted in your question, I think with some tweaks, you can get to your goal even with the restrictions you have. Don’t give up, don’t eat junk or a lot of carbs, increase the amount of water you drink and eat more fruits and veggies!

    How old are you, and what height/wight are you?
    The amount of fruit and veg you like is very limited, so I would seriously urge you to try other fruit and veg, or you can also do what my friend does for her todler – she steams different kinds of veg and when in cools she puts in in the blender with some yoghurt and/or milk and fruit juice – this way you will still get the necessary vitamins and fibre and you might actually learn to enjoy it.
    As you can’t join a gym and can’t leave the garden (seriously, how old are you???) I’d say your best option is to get some kind of exercise dvd that specifically targets the areas you want to tone. Also, some exercises you can do in your parents garden:
    Skipping rope (this is a great exercise, but build it up slowly. First see how long you can do it for – do this 3x a week and add 1 minute onto your time every week, once you can do it for at least 10 minutes straight without tripping or having to stop try hopping on alternate legs).
    Mat-exercises like push-ups, sit-ups, etc.

    Lastly – please think carefully about whether you really need to loose weight – you sound like you are fairly young and generally children under the age of 16 should not be dieting unless they are seriously overweight, like obese overweight. You can calculate your body-mass-index (BMI) to see if you are really overweight (just google BMI) as often our own body-image is not entirely accurate. If your BMI tells you that you are not overweight but you really feel like certain areas need toning up then by all means exercise, but don’tover do it as you are probably still growing. And don’t diet, just concentrate on eating healthy.

    If your BMI says that you are overweight then please also discuss this with your parents and doctor because if you are as young as I think you are you really should get their help and support on this.

    Good luck!

    Lets put it straight. Losing weight is not that hard, You will never hear me say that it is. All it takes is dedication, motivation and hard workAlways check in gradients of everything you are buyingRelaxation, stress and strain never allow people to be slim.
