Weight Loss Tips For Teenagers

Submitted by: Simon Starkins

Are you a teen who is a bit over weight? Are you tired of your friends calling you fat? Do you want to lose weight the healthy way without starving yourself? Then this is the right place for you. Now teenagers mostly have weight issues because they don’t eat properly or they try out diets, which don’t help them at all and lead to them gaining a lot more weight than they could ever imagine.

Now the main mistake which all of the teens make is that they starve themselves thinking that, that way they are going to lose a lot of weight. But then it is very unhealthy for them. Doctors never say yes to this diet unless the teen is extremely overweight. This is because you lose your calories drastically and sometimes or most of the times, the body cannot take this change and hence the teens fall sick.

Now you will also see that if you do go for this diet, you will rapidly lose weight for a short period of time, but after that you are going to start gaining more and more weight. So either way you don’t lose weight and you even get sick in the process. So in order to lose weight, instead of starving yourself, you need to make sure that you cut down on all the junk. Stop having soda and burgers and so on. Try and have really healthy foods. Fats foods should be a once in a blue moon thing.

Also make sure that you don’t have a lot of sodas or energy drinks or bottled juices and so on. Instead of all of this try and have a lot of water. This will help you save one a lot of calories. Also make sure that you fill up on all of the vegetables and the fruits. Also try not to have a snack every hour of the day. Sometimes teens tend to have snacks when they are down or when they are bored. This is one thing, which needs to be avoided.

Now exercising is a common weight loss technique for people of all ages. As a teen you are able to exercise in a lot more ways than younger or older people can. You can try out skateboarding, dancing, sports, biking and so on. The more you exercise the more calories you burn. So try and burn out all your calories this way and exercise any time that you can. Make sure that you choose sports, which you will enjoy. This way you have fun and you burn off calories.

You can even try and walk around the neighborhood with your friend, go for extra laps around the mall and so on. All of this is exercising and this is doing it in a fun way. So every time you walk around or check out a new store you lose calories and hence cut down on your weight.
