Well J_Lynn I really don't like you attitude and I really don't think anyone else in here does either. The F-R-U-I-T that you mentioned is sometimes high it calories too. I looked up a orange and it is about 100 calories for one orange so would you like to eat 5 oranges for the whole day?

ok this is for "me age 13", ok what you are doing sounds great. how long have you been on this diet? See, the thing is you dont truely see results until weeks or even months after starting you diet/workout routine. your body takes time to adjust to changes being made. you MUST be patient- you know its worth it. NEXT QUESTION- are you counting your calories or guessing? and what exactly are you eating?? you need to balance things out- bread-veggies-fruit-dairy

Oh MY DEAR SWEET GOD. AN ADULT FEMALE ON AN AVERAGE CONSUMES 2,000 CALORIES A DAY. A HEALTHY ACTIVE TEENAGER CONSUMES 2,500 A DAY. MY GUESS IS THAT ALOT OF YOU ON HERE ARE NOT ACTIVE, OR ELSE YOU WOULDNT BE HERE. NO WONDER YOU GUYS ARE GAINING SO MUCH WEIGHT. PLEASE, DONT BE EMBARRESED TO MEEY WITH YOUR DOCTOR. LADIES, PUH LEEEEESE DONT LISTEN TO THESE DIET PLANS ON CALORIC INTAKE. YOU NEED TO GET A PHYSICAL FROM YOUR DOC FIRST THEN THEY'LL FILL YOU IN. IF YOU GUYS HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, JULIES HAS A NUTRITION AND WEIGHT LOSS SITE- POST ME BACK AND I'LL GIVE YA THE TAILS' LOTTA LOVE~~~~PEACE

DONT WONDER WHY I KNOW TONS OF INFO ON WEIGHT LOSS. MY STEP MOTHER IS A NUTRITIONIST. SHES THE ONE WHO HELPED ME LOSS WEIGHT AND HELPS ME BULILD SITES TO HELP OTHERS OUT THERE. I WEIGHED 145 LBS. BEFORE I STARTED MY DIET PLAN. IT IS OK TO USE 500 CALORIES A DAY- IT DEPENDS ON HOW ACTIVE YOU ARE AND I WAS NOT ACTIVE AT ALL. NO ONE SHOULD EVER USE THESE DIET PLANS FROM ANYONE- NOT EVEN THAT SCAREY OLD ASHLEY CHIC- BY THE WAY YOU ARE 25 YRS OLD- WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE- THIS IS PEERS HELPING PEERSALWAYS CHECK WITH YOUR NUTRITIONIST OR YOUR DOCTOR. EVERY ONE IS MADE DIFFERENTLY. LOTTA LOVE- PEACE OUT

Ashley is right. You can't survive on less than 1200 calories a day. You can seriously hurt your body if you eat less than that. The best thing to do is exercise off the extra calories with controlled moderate exercise. You should eat about 1800-2400 calories a day (girls lower, guys higher) then exercise for about a half an hour. If you notice, most skinny people are in sports or some type of group or class that keeps them moving. Skipping meals slows your metabolism, while eating right and exercising keeps your metabolism running the fastest it can. Just think of it as a burning fire. A fire needs fuel and oxygen to stay bright and burning. We get fuel from the food we eat and oxygen from exercising. Please take care of your body, you have to live with it for a life time.

I have an extremely overweight friend, who dosnt even seem to notice how overweight she is. She eats a lot and all the time...i dont know how to tell her that she is overweight, and shouldnt eat like that. She dosnt even care that people tease her constantly, and that its harder for her to do certain things. I feel real bad for her, and i feel bad myself for not doing anything. But, i dont know how to tell her. PLEASE reply with any ideas. I need to tell her someway, and soon.

To j_lynn: PLEASE DO NOT TELL ANYONE TO EAT SUCH A SMALL AMOUNT OF CALORIES!!! It is unhealthy and dangerous and you have no right putting the lives of teens in danger! I am not trying to be mean to you, as I am sure you have the best of intentions. I am merely trying to tell you that what you are telling them is very dangerous. I am glad it turned out ok for you but to tell other teens to try it is just plain dangerous. Also, you don't have to use the word hell in every message you send! Enough already. Please, sweetie, help others by giving them healthy tips and email me or send me a message if you want to.

Actually, I HAVE talked to my doctor about weight loss. You, j_lynn, are right. 500 calories is not starving yourself, yet. But if you continue to stay on a diet which only allows the intake of 500 calories a day, you will not last long. Your body will not have the energy it needs. You will become weak, tired, and irritable. After a week, at the least, you could go into starvation mode. That is not a healthy, or effective plan.

This message is for VineVixen17 and to all the other teens out there...please don't ever try anorexia or bulimia. Those aren't diets. They are eating disorders which can eventually kill you. And to VineVixen17, I remember exactly how it was to be in your shoes. I am also 5'5". I now weigh 130 lbs and I am so proud of the body I now have. I am healthy, I eat right and exercize, and I am in my target weight range. Please don't try to starve yourself just to be a size 2. At your height, a size 2 would look anorexic. I will help you in anyway I can but you have to promise me, and yourself, that you will only try healthy ways. Are you drinking a lot of cokes? Sorry, I am from the south and in the south, when we say coke we mean any kind of soda. Cokes are high in sugar and sugar turns into fat if it isn't burned off. ANyway, email me or send me messages here and I will support you in way I can. Take care and good luck!
Ashley

J_Lynn, Eating less slows down your metabolism. You don't want to lose it too fast because you can gain it back faster. 500 calories is not even close to being enough. One piece of cheese pizza is 500 calories and I dont think thats all that everyone wants to eat every day. Please look at your diet plan a little more carefully. Starving yourself to 500 calories is kind of like being anorexic. My friend died from that diease and I don't want to see that happen to anyone else. So if you are reading this please don't take J_Lynn's advice.~Kelli~
