The best way for anybody and ESPECIALLY young adolescents is to eat healthy and exericise regularly. I know, I've lost 70 pounds. Take a picture of yourself, and pin it to the back of your door. Also weigh yourself and make a chart of how much weight you want to lose in the long run, and how much you want to lose each week. Organise yourself to have a treat (not food related) after you accomplish each week's weight goal. (best to start off with around 2 pounds to start off with), and weigh yourself each week at the same time and record it in your plan!

First is first, cut out any processed foods that are full of sugars and fats. LIke chips, lollies, pizza, deep fried chicken, the fish you get fro the fish n chip shop.

Second, find out what healthy foods you like to eat. Vegetables? Fruits? Nuts? Plain biscuits?

Third, make yourself a meal plan/diary. Once you've found out what you've got to cut out of your diet, and what you like and want to put into your diet, write it all down. Write in what your going to have for breakfast, lunch and dinner on everyday, and mix and match what you like. Because your still living at home, go shopping with your mum and ask her to buy you something differet so that she can cook it for you.

Fourth, exercise daily!! If you wake up 20 min before you have to get ready for school and do a quick 10 min skipping rope session, and the run around at school for atleast 10 min, and then come home and do another 10 min of running, or skipping and any other exercise you've just made up your 30 min a day! Every day you HAVE to do a MINIMUM of 30 min a day to lose as much weight as you can! You don't have to exercise everyday, but if you want to lose your weight quicker exercise atleast 6 days a week!
If you want to do more work, then go for a jog, or a brisk walk! Maybe help mum vaccum around the house and that can make up 10 min of your exercise plan! Keep motivate, and allow yourself a treat every week. But make sure its small! Have 1 piece of chocolate instead of a whole candy bar!.
Good work, and just send me a message if you want any other tips :)!!!

Well, I'm 16 and I lost 12 pounds in two weeks. I ran everyday for twenty min except for sat and sun. I ate very healthy and I only drank water. =) though as long as you run twenty minutes a date, you should be fine eating w/e you want.

Eat Fruits and Vegetables. ELIMINATE SUGARS (cakes, cookies, pies, sodas, juice [HIGH IN SUGAR!!], candy); STARCHES (rice, pasta, white bread...eliminate any food that is white); and CERTAIN MEATS (fried foods like chicken, fish, shrimp, hamburgers, pork [hot dogs,bacon,) Also, exercising at least3 x's a week is mandatory. If you eat right and fail to exercise, then the results will take longer and you will not have be as toned and fit as you would like. The type of exercises you do are essential to weight loss. Playing a sport, jogging, running, pilates, kick boxing, doing a video, jumping rope, boxing, boot camp classes, even getting a Wii Fit and doing something at home. EXERCISE IS A MUST!!

Lastly, being active and eating right will get the pounds off. And if this diet is too stressful, then follow it six days a week and treat yourself to WHATEVER you want one day a week.  In other words, have a strict diet Monday-Saturday, and eat whatever you want on Sunday.

Good luck, and hope this works for you!

I have lost 91 pounds in the last year. I only eat fresh meats and veggies.  I drink a lot of water.  I gave up all junk food and I stopped drinking sodas. I replaced the soda with coffee using equal as a sweetener.  Watch your carb intake and try to keep your carbs under 20 per day.  You should see a difference quickle.

I would highly recommend you this new secret wonderful & healthy
method which helped me a lot! I'm using it too and it's going great
till now!

Here is the INFO:

New Proven Red Tea Detox Program That Will Help You Lose Weight!

You need to discover the Secret West African Red Tea!

Proven to Stop Hunger Cravings in Their Tracks & Help You Melt Away up to 1 Pound of FAT Every 72 HOURS!

The legend said:

An African Shaman possessed an ancient recipe for a delicious red tea so
powerful that whoever drank it felt unlimited energy - with no thirst
and no hunger.

It sounded crazy, and yet I was absolutely dying to find out the truth.
Could drinking this red tea really make someone never feel hungry?

You can t buy this tea blend in the store because it s still mostly a
secret. In fact, I m literally the first person in America who s ever
brought it back from Africa, and if I hadn t gotten out of that jungle
alive, you wouldn t be hearing about it today.

But don t worry, because you can actually find all the ingredients you
need at any grocery store. You might even have them in your house right
now. And the tea works like magic. You feel full, satisfied, and
energized almost instantly, and your body will actually activate its
natural ability to burn fat, a built-in superpower you might not have
used in years.

Additionally, absolutely anyone can use it! Regardless of your age,
gender, or health. While you should always check with a physician you
trust before making any life changes, this detox has been proven to be
safe, effective, and simple. You can drink this tea to detox your body
and shed 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 pounds or more, just like I did.

The difference in my body was truly astonishing: I lost 14 pounds in just a few weeks.

Your goal should be walking or running about 5 miles a day. Wear a pedometer to see. The average person walks about 2-3 thousand steps a day which is about a mile. You burn 100 calories per mile. So do that. Set a goal. Like 10,000 steps. Also you have to cut sugar out completely. (the unhealthy sugar) like cake cookies candy chocolate. And eat food like salmon and chicken for protein and eat fruits and vegetables. A sample diet menu would be

Breakfast: Oatmeal, banana, strawberries
Lunch: Chicken, salad, carrots
Dinner: Salmon, broccoli, herb biscuits.

If you wants to calculate your weight on daily basis you can use this Weight Loss Calculator,it shows the appropriate results.

That's just an example just mix up fruits and vegetables between each mean. And for snacks in between instead of eating those delicious Cheetos try strawberries with lemon squirted on them(it's amazing) or celery and peanut butter. Also something you could do:

I understand what you're feeling because I'm 17! But for one thing, it will be very hard for you to even lose weight if you try because you don't have enough weight to lose. If you are really uncomfortable and you HAVE to lose a couple pounds, just try eating healthier and cutting out junk food, sugar, soda etc. And doing daily exercise because that is a healthy thing to do anyway. Don't stress about it.

Try this weight loss calculator through which you can easily calculate your weight on daily basis.

Good Luck!

You can lose weight very fast by adopting a low calorie diet and becoming extremely physically active...that is the simplest way to put it.

Now to break it down a bit for you:

-Don't drop your calories below 1,200/day (if you want to do it safely)
-Eat foods like veggies, lean meats, 1-2 fruits/day, nuts, no fat cottage cheese, yogurt, brown rice, oatmeal
-Drink 8+ glasses of water/day
-Do 1 hour of cardio daily

If you wanted to lose more weight, you could do more cardio than that, but I wouldn't recommend's your body, so its up to you how far you want to push it.

There is more detailed info on setting up a proper program here.
