How can I lose weight in certain areas before spring break?

I want to lose 10lbs. (at the least) by spring break, especially in the upper legs, and stomach. Im 16-female. I get sick when i dont have enough sugar, and from all the stress from 3 AP classes im always hungry. My parents are always bringing in junk food, but i can stay away from that. And doing push ups and sit ups, havent helped me in the past. How can i drop weight fast, and healthy?

    Unfortunately, there is no quick fix for losing fat. Slow and steady wins the race. 5 to 6 small meals a day. Balancing protein and Carbohydrate and absolutely no sugars and Junk food , at least 30 minutes of cardio 4 times a week and 30 minutes weight training 3 times a week will fetch u good and permanent results. I totally understand the stress caused by the classes.load your bag with healthy snacks like celery with peanut butter, cottage cheese, protein rich bars ( with no sugars) etc.
    Remember the more sugar you eat the more hungrier you become.
    Reduce or totally curb anything white.(White rice.white bread . etc).
    Eat whole grains. To satisfy your sweet tooth eat fruits.

    Unfortunately there is no way to loose weight on specific areas of your body. The only to loose weight is by engaging in quite alot of physical activity and having a good nutritional diet.

    And I’m afraid you will need to cut down on sugar, which in small amounts is fine to to much wont do you any benifit. By taking more and more sugar you are only increasing your dependance upon it.

    I’d suggest you obviously eat alot of fruit and veg and drink plently of water which is the single most important thing you remember. And stick to a reasonable amount of carbohydraytes and protien.
    Wholegrain is also very good for you (Shreaded wheat, brown bread etc)

    Cardio such as running, swimming, cycling will do you alot of good and helps burn fat, whereas push-ups and sit-ups are more building muscle which is much much harder to do hence the little difference you’ve noticed. However if you combine cardio and a small amount of weightlifting it will benifit you more for example:

    Mon – 10 Minute run – 10-15 Squats
    Tues – 10 Minute Swim – 10 Lunges
    Wed – 10 Min Cycle – 10 Press-ups
    Thurs – 10 Min Run – 20 Lateral Raise (Weights)
    Fri – Rest
    Sat – 10 Min Swim – 10 Sit-Ups
    Sun – 20 Min Swim

    And increase the reps or time each week 😉

    You only have to start of small, dont try to hard and do it small steps 😉 Also try to get some friends or family involved, its more fun and easier to do it with others

    I strongly suggest you visit your local Gym if not to join then to at least have a chat with one of the instructors who will be happy to help you.

    Here are some tips:


    As I am sure you know already, cut down on all fatty foods, drink 8 glasses of water per day, eat 5 fruit/veg per day and choose low fat options.

    You could try joining a club such as weight watchers as this will give you lots of diet plans and help you to stay motivated.

    Exercise! :

    You should ‘exercise’ for a full twenty minutes at a time, five days per week to stay at a healthy weight.

    Remember, don’t over-do it and certainly don’t try to lose weight too quickly. The more quickly you do it, the more quickly you put it back on. Also, it’s not good for you to just ‘suddenly’ start exercising vigorously. Do it slowly and that way you will be able to keep it up and not put the weight back on.

    The best exercise for burning calories is cardio-aerobic. Jogging, cycling, poer-walking, swimming, aerobic dancing or general aerobic workouts. However, strength-training is also important to increase muscle-fat ratio.

    Exercise does burn calories but it takes a while to lose 1 pound of weight! However, exercise is essential to maintain weight loss and maintain your body at peak efficiency.
