How to lose weight if you dont have healthy food?

I want to lose weight, I dont mind excercising, but I do only a little per day. The problem I have is, I have nothing healthy in my house to eat, and my parents refuse to buy anything healthy. At school, the healthiest thing is a (I think) Low fat sandwhich (but dont quote me), it’s some kind of ham or turkey sandwhich, would it be okay to eat that every day? Anyways, what can I do at home? Thanks.

    its really important for you to control your portions. Watch the grams of fat your taking in. anything 8 grams and under a serving is good.

    a little exercise, and no healthy food?

    losing weight will be hard, just eat less of what ur parents buy

    and go jogging, alot of jogging. Lots of cardio will help u shed the pounds

    kinda messed up that ur parents arent supportive

    *** cutting back on fat wont help u lose weight. Althoug some fats are bad for u ( avoid trans ans limit saturated) your body needs some fats, and they actually can help u lose weight ans stay healthy. *You need to avoid anything with sugar in it and limit simple carbs and calories.

    Just don’t snack a lot. Your parents must have veggies or fruits around the house. Eat fruit for breakfast, try to bring something from home to eat for lunch. School lunches usually are planned to be fairly healthy. They must have salad of some kind. Eat that, with low fat dressing or no dressing. Simply you just have to attempt to eat under 2000 calories a day. Don’t drink sugary drinks like soda, and if you must, drink diet. Try to drink lots and lots of water throughout the day, as this will stop you from feeling hungry. I lost 20 pounds in 2 weeks by only eating when I was hungry, eating healthy, and drinking nothing but water.

    Spend your pocket money on fruit and veg?, why on earth would your parents, ‘refuse’ to buy anything healthy?. It need not be expensive, just small portions of healthy things for their child who is concerned about his health? I would have a more in depth conversation with them.

    You could eat the sandwich at school everyday if you want, just add things like bananas to keep you full and energised.

    Eat the closest thing to healthy. Up the exercise. Walking 30 minutes a day or more will help big time. Carry a back pack with book to add weight and burn calories. Do push-ups, 3 sets 25 reps. Build up to it, then add more. Your body needs fuel to burn, the trick is to only eat what your body needs, and little more.

    Then try to exercise some more and then eat the sandwich at school.

    I can’t belive your parents refuse to buy you anything healthy… my parents refuse to buy me anything UNhealthy!! Anyway, you could try speaking to them about how you feel, and tell them that you want to eat more healthily. I’m sure they wouldn’t mind buying a few healthy things?
    It isn’t a good idea to eat the same thing for lunch every day although the low fat sandwich would be a good thing to eat 3 days a week at the most.

    Here are some tips for you:
    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, power-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.

    The truth is it you dont gotta eat healthy. I mean yyou can like have a double Cheeseburger or a steak like once a week but dont have it every day.
    Your body needs those fats and other nutrients to function properly.
    Even eating veggies all day cant be good for you.
    as i say “a little too much of one this is too much”.
    Just work out excersice and jog/run/walk the track 2–3 times a day.
    Try to go to and see what it says.
    Folow those food servings.

    Good Luck!

    If you want to lose weight, you need to two things: eat less and exercise more. Weight gain happens when you create a calorie surplus (eat more than you burn). Your body takes the excess calories and converts them to fat which get stored around your stomach, arms and thighs. The longer you remain in a calorie surplus, the more weight you’ll gain. To lose that weight, you need to do the opposite. You need to create a calorie deficit (start eating less than you burn).

    Your first step is to figure out how many calories you burn on a daily basis. This calculator will help you out The number you get from this tool is what your body burns on a daily basis. To lose weight, simply eat less. It sounds a lot easier than it is but making small changes helps you adjust to a new lifestyle. Don’t think of this as a diet, think of it as a new life. Instead of eating foods high in sugars, white flour and saturated fat, go with fruits, vegetables, whole wheats, fish, lean meats, nuts and beans. In addition to eating less, you also need to exercise more. Start off at 1-2 times per week and work your way up to 3-5 times per week.

    Don’t make all of these changes at once or you won’t be able to properly adjust to them. Generally, eating healthier foods will decrease your calorie intake. Compare a doughnut to an apple and you’ll see that healthy foods are lower in calories. You can find some more information at the Beginner’s Guide to Dieting –
