How to Quickly Lose Weight?

I am a teen that is slightly overweight, and due to athletic obligations, need to drop weight quickly. Is there anything else I can do besides eat right and exercise?

    Nope.
    Well, just boost your metabolism; eat either cold things or hot things.

    Exercise 2+ hours

    that should do it: start a good plan combining diet and exercise. Some things to look for in a plan:

    Look for one that makes sense to you; one that you can live with every day
    Look for one that not only helps you lose weight sensibly, but also helps you maintain your weight loss
    Make sure that the plan provides you with the nutrients that your body needs

    No matter what your diet plan ends up looking like, it is up to YOU to make it a part of your life.

    And remember, small steps!

    WATER, WATER EVERYWHERE

    You can go a while without food (yes you can), but you cannot live long without water!

    Drinking water has plenty of advantages. It helps fill your stomach – which can help suppress your appetite. Water also helps flush your system of toxins. And it regulates our body temperature.

    Water is essential to many of our body processes. Yet, most of us do not drink nearly enough!

    You have probably heard that you should drink 8 – 8oz glasses of water throughout the day.

    TIP: If you can’t stand to drink plain water, try adding a slice of lemon, lime, or orange!

    If you need to make a weigh-in, you can take a “water pill”. It is a diuretic that can help you loose a lot of water quickly to make weight. You can loose 5-8 lbs ina week, but it will come back because it’s water weight your body needs.

    hey you could try these pills called Carb Blocker 2, they don’t let the Fat, from everything we eat, stick to the tummy area. my body used to be a pear shaped but now I have an hour-glass figure and I can still eat everything I want. they are about 46 cents a pill. and if you want to lose fat from everywhere then try Slimmetry pills, these pills does wonders too. and they are about 20 cents.

    not really that’s health! just eat more fibrous foods celery, oatmeal, oranges, mango’s. helps to increase metabolism.

    It is feasible to lose weight rapidly but you should be realistic and take on board that if you lose weight quickly then you will inevitably put it all back on again just as quickly. The one diet that really delivered for me was wu-yi tea, it can be checked out in the resource box underneath, they have a handful of free trials in stock, it has been reported in Reader’s Digest and USA Today. I melted away 30 pounds, it really does work!

    1 Dietary control and exercise. It’s true what they say – all you need to do is watch what you eat, and expend more energy than you consume. It’s really that simple. You can quit reading this list now, you now know everything you need to know and didn’t need to fork over $500 for the privilege of me telling you the secret of losing weight. You don’t need to read a 4,000 page book, you don’t have to buy a tape series, you don’t need to stay up late at night to watch infomercials to understand this basic premise. It’s 100% true.

    2 Change your lifestyle. If you’re calling this a “diet,” then you’re going to gain all the weight back (and more) within a few months of losing it. Diets do not work. Diets are temporary. When you change your dietary lifestyle, however, you’re changing your habits – and you’re putting yourself on track for long-term / continued success and weight maintenance. Don’t ever tell anybody you’re on a diet – ever. I’m speaking from experience, here – a reformed low-carber. Worked out well for a while, but ultimately failed because my entire lifestyle didn’t change (permanently).

    3 Join an online support group. In my case, I created my own – FatBlasters. It’s essential that you not feel alone, and reaching out to friends (new or old) is typically a smart move. I just heard about PeetTrainer, but didn’t know about it when I began down the road to weight loss. You have to know that others are out there for moral support – they know things that you couldn’t possibly know, and they’ve probably been “in your shoes” at some point in the past (or present). Share stories, laughter, tears, successes, and failures – share them. There are thousands of communities out there, so keep looking until you find the one that fits you.

    4 Take before and after photos. I know it sucks to see yourself as a chunky monkey (sorry, that’s what I called myself – if only to get myself motivated to meet my weight loss goal). However, there’s no easier way to illustrate your progress. The “after” photos are far more fun to capture and share, admittedly. Find yourself on Flickr! It’s good to see yourself how others see you. Do you like how you look? In many ways, Flickr helped me lose weight.

    5 Hire a substitute teacher. Don’t reach for the brands you know and love immediately – or without thinking first. Eggs are “good” for you, but consider using egg substitutes instead (in fact, many restaurants will let you order lower calorie foods). There are countless “lower” alternatives for you to try. If something different doesn’t taste good, by all means – find a better substitute, or eat less of the original. In some cases, the substitute may be worse for you than the regular version of the product. The good news is, healthier choices are silently replacing their “normal” counterparts – and they taste just as nice.

    6 Start reading labels. I know it sucks, but you have to do it – and there’s no way to avoid this tip. If you don’t know what you’re putting in your mouth, you’re flying blind. Don’t assume, either – triple-check the ingredients list and serving sizes. You must rely on yourself for this; nobody else is going to be able to lose the weight or do the math for you. It’s not that complicated a task, but it will require effort. If nothing else, just pay attention to the calorie count.

    7 What’s so funny about bovines? If you like cheese, you must buy the Laughing Cow brand, and keep several of the suckers in stock at all times. The individually-wrapped wedges make for excellent snacks, and are wonderful when melted over just about anything edible. I’d be careful about straight-up American cheese, though – it’s oil, but not necessarily as good for you as (say) a slice of cheddar would be. I have yet to find something as calorie-light and filling as Laughing Cow (I don’t know how they do it).

    8 Tell your family. You’re not going to lose the weight alone, even if you ARE alone in losing the weight. If you’ve got a family at home, talk to them about it – initially, not incessantly. Let them know what you’re going to do, and that you want (and need) their support. If you don’t let them know, you’re running the risk of them inadvertently sabotaging your efforts. You want them to help you get to your goal(s). You want them to share in your happiness when you’ve made it past a certain mark. Who knows? Maybe some of your new habits will rub off on them and they’ll become healthier people, too?
