How do I lose fat without gaining more mass?

I’m a 17 year old competitive female athlete and am continually excercising. I run 4-8 miles a day including an hour or so of weight training and play competitive soccer 4 days a week. I started off being VERY thin and petite and have worked my way to having an athletic built and am bigger than i’d prefer. I’m currently on my off season and it seems my muscle is turning to fat and i’m just gaining mass. How do I lose body fat and get my lean and toned figure back?

    hey, you know what? The most unexpensive weight loss thing to do, is to try to burn more calories than you eat, dont eat unhealthy like a 500 calorie diet! All that will do is make you sick, you NEED to be healthy to lose weight properly. Im trying to lose weight too! So basically here are some tips to speed up your metabolism: Drink 1-3 glasses of green tea a day
    Try and eat Chilli peppers somehow, ((chilli DUH )) they help.
    8 classes of water a day

    the more active you are, the faster your metabolism will grow to be.

    did you know that breathing for an hour burns 60 calories all on its own? And SLEEP is very important, try to go to sleep on time and get your ages average amount of sleep,. ask your doctor what a healthy weight for you is, and then after you have reached that goal do sit ups and crutches – among many other core excersises, Run to slim out, and make sure you burn more calories than you eat – had to repeat that!

    Fruits and veggies are REALLY low in calories and FULL of nutrition. If you like Tacos? Ditch the hard shell, maybe try a taco salad.. without the shell of course! Lettuce with meat is good, but PLEASE try mixing it with turkey and beef so that it isnt all fat. Chicken salad is good, you want the protein but you dont want fried anything really, once in a while if fine but remember – YOU HAVE TO BURN OFF THOSE EXTRA CALORIES. Excersises excersise excersise. Dont over do it – dont starve yourself, be moderate and stay active. GOOGLE: 100 ways to burn 100 calories, their are some pretty cool things you can do!

    Stay away from starchy and high carb foods – mostly white things. Bread is a bad, so try to stick to thin, HIGH in fiber, slices 🙂

    you can google all the stuff and before you know it you will feel so good about it all and IM actually excited to start working out and all that, just because I know what it will do for me!

    but if you must go with a diet, try Weight Watchers, its the only one I actually recommend. 🙂
