How to lose weight fast and successfully.?

I’m 17 and a size 12. I’m only 5 feet tall and being that tall doesn’t make me look that great. I used to be a size 4 like 2 years ago. I’m depressed about my weight and feel like giving up. Will someone please help me. Tell me something that you KNOW will help me. Something fast, healthy, not nasty, and successful.

    Losing weight fast is not successful, because you could cause yourself health issues. Instead aim at losing 2 pounds per week.
    start your day by eating a good health breakfast. but make sure to read the nutrient label on the foods you eat to know what a serving size is. such as cereal a serving size could be 1/2 to 3/4 cup.
    Eat foods with fiber, learn what a serving size is, eat smaller meals 6 times a day, never let your self get hungry. drink 64 ounces of water daily.
    Visit ehow.com for more information on losing weight.
    Step 1 Keep hydrated. Drink eight glasses of water per day, and make sure to keep drinking while exercising.

    Step 2 Decrease or eliminate junk food. It supplies empty calories, excess fat and sodium, sugar and food additives.
    Step 3 Avoid crash dieting or starvation diets if weight loss is part of your fitness goals. Speak with a nutritionist or other health professional about healthy methods of losing weight.
    Step 4 Feed your muscles. They need energy to work, and their main energy source is glycogen. Carbohydrates are your best source of glycogen.
    Step 5 Eat 5 to 6 grams of carbohydrates per kilogram of body weight to supply adequate glycogen to muscles. Divide your weight by 2.2 to convert pounds to kilograms.
    Step 6 Choose healthy sources of carbohydrates. Eat fruits, salads, pasta, cereals and whole-grain breads. They not only provide carbohydrates, but are packed with fiber, vitamins and minerals.
    Step 7 Check with a professional trainer or nutritionist to assess whether you need extra protein. If you are training vigorously, extra protein may be worth considering. The added amount is usually small, even for professional athletes.
    Step 8 Eat a healthy, well-balanced diet. The USDA’s Food Guide Pyramid suggests three to five servings of vegetables and two to four servings of fruit every day.
    Step 9 Make sure to get fat in your diet, even if you are on a weight loss program. Polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats are better for you than saturated. The recommended amount is no more than 30 percent of your total intake of calories.
    Step 10 Check out some health cookbooks, like Dr. Ornish’s Eat More, Weigh Less, for tasty, healthy recipes.

    Patience and good luck.

    There are many sensible things you can do that will make a tremendous difference over the long term if you need to lose weight. It can be done in a healthy way. This is what has worked for me.

    Keeping a food journal really does help. It will give you a much better sense of how much you are eating, and when, and why.

    Make a few additional small changes – walk everywhere, always use stairs instead of elevators, walk on escalators, get up and move around at least once an hour if your work or your life in general is sedentary, walk every day, use a pedometer. Walking 10,000 steps a day is a really good idea. Build up to a long brisk walk everyday, or most days. Be more active and watch less TV and spend less time on the computer. Buy one piece of exercise equipment to have at home and be strict with yourself about using it. Sometimes you can find mini-steppers or exercise bikes at second hand stores and thrift stores for just a few dollars.

    Start a weight lifting routine. Join a gym. Possibly you can find one that has someone who specializes in weight lifting programs for beginners. Weight lifting will increase your metabolism as well as improve posture and appearance overall. Even if you can’t get to the gym you can work out at home using things around the house. Invest in a good weight training book. The Dummies series actually has a good one.

    In terms of diet, cut out or reduce things like junk food, pop, fat, fast food. Eat more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean meat, fish. Particularly if you choose a vegetarian lifestyle include natural peanut butter, hummus, dried fruit and nuts. Pay close attention to getting the nutrients your body needs to be healthy.

    Make your portion sizes smaller. Use a smaller plate – in our society we have become accustomed to thinking that we need a large plate of food at every meal, and we don’t. About quarter of your plate of food should be protein and at least half of it should be veggies.

    Learn to count calories. At your current weight and activity level, you may possibly need about 2000 calories or more to maintain your current weight. So you will lose weight at a reasonable and healthy rate if you cut back to about 1600 or 1700 calories a day.

    Eat small amounts frequently, rather than three large meals. Never skip breakfast. Include some protein in your breakfast. It will help get you through the day.

    Drink plenty of water, at least 8 big glasses of water a day, and more if it is very hot, if you sweat a lot, or if you are exercising intensely, and eliminate fruit juices. Fruit juices have too many calories, so get your vitamins from fresh fruit, not the juice. You will begin to see changes in your body.

    Check out websites about nutrition, exercise, weight training, etc. Here are a few helpful links.
