How much weight can I lose with running?

I am a 15 year old girl, I’m about 5’5, and weigh about 160 lbs. I’m pretty self-conscious about my weight, and I want to look and feel healthier. If I go running 3-4 times a week, for about 30-60 minutes, how quickly should I lose weight, and how much will I lose?

    Don’t listen to the weight loss bologna about pills and everything, pleaaaase! Haha… that stuff is sad.

    Running will be great for you! From what I’m hearing, you will probably lose around 2 lbs. a week- a little bit more if you eat really healthy. This does, however, really depend on how hard you work and on your metabolism.

    Start going for slow, long jogs just to clear your head. If you’re doing it JUST to lose weight, you’ll get out of the habit of doing it. Don’t worry about your weight too much for now. If you focus on becoming a better runner, you will become a better athlete and begin to see the changes! It’s an excellent feeling! However, in my experience, I haven’t been able to keep up the routine simply because I want to lose weight. You need a few more little motivational goals to make sure that you will stick w/ the program.

    GOOD LUCK! I would love to hear how you’re doing. Running is a great thing to relax you and it will make you feel better as well. It releases endorphins and serotonin into the body as well that produces a good feeling.

    Anyways, don’t try anything other than eating healthy and exercising- the other crap is just bad for you and not effective. Exercise produces a much better effect anyways. 🙂

    Drink lots of water!

    1 pound a week is considered normal and healthy. The amount of weight you will lose is up to you. You have to realize that what you eat and how much you eat is as equally important as exercise when it comes to losing weight.

    Running 60 minutes 4 times a week is a great idea to start out with! Just remember that over time your body will adapt to this regime. So when running 60 minutes 4 times a week gets easy then its time to increase your effort. Try running more frequently or for longer periods of time. Anything that requires more physical effort will put demand on your body to loose weight. Be progressive in your running, and you will see results.

    I’ve been there and done that. If you are really trying to lose weight, you have to stay dedicated and determined to do so. I lost around 50 pounds using just these simple tips I’m about to explain to you.

    I found three things to be the best but you have to use them together in order to get some great results. You have to understand that you are what you eat first. Dieting is something you might have to stick in there with and follow through with one. Some people can while others can’t.

    The next thing you need to do is create a workout plan whether that be cardio or some other exercise to get the heart rate up. You have got to do at least 30 mins a day to get some results.

    The 3rd step that I’m going to explain, helps a lot if you are slobbish on your diet or just need some help with it all. For me, it’s a natural herbal supplement called Proactol. It’s a fat binder and an appetite suppressant. I’m very health consicious and having this supplement that is made from natural herbs, you really can’t beat it. It’s helped me so much but absorbing up to 28% of fat that you intake. Which means if you aren’t following your dieting plans, you have a little more room for food being on the supplement. The appetite suppressant part works wonderfully too so you can actually stay away from the cookies and brownies.

    These steps really worked for me, you should try them out for yourself even if you want to lose very little or that extra mile. Also at the time of my 3 month supply purchase of Proactol, I saved a lot of money on it at http://theweightlossplace .com

    Good luck and I hope this helps you out for your weight loss goals.
