Ok first of all avoid fad diets, they just don't work because if you go off of it you will gain all the weight back. Your better of doing something more healthy even if it takes longer becuase the weight will actually stay off. Basically the concept of losing weight is to burn more calories then you are eating. So try to eat healthier foods, not so much junk food. And try to not eat a lot because even though meat, vegtables and fruits are good for you if you eat to much of them they can lead to weight gain. So try to cut back on your servings. Also try to get a lot of exersise. Like 3 days a week for at least 30 minutes or something. Hope this helps. If you want some more help just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Being that you tried doing a diet here are some things try doing:
Slowly cut back. Say you have 10 sweets a day then cut back to 8 sweets. Say you have 10 junky foods a day go to 8. Replace the 2 items with healthy foods. Then later cut back to say 6 junky and 4 healthy.

Remember, if you want to lose weight, that's ok, but dont do it based on how your friends look! If you want to lose weight, you should only eat when you're hungry. Don't eat for pleasure, even though it may be tempting. I hope I helped!

Hey you guys, I'm back, but i'm on this new plan. I lost a couple of pounds eating right, bu gained most back because i was sloofing. But it tought me how to eat (keeping the food journal for 4 weeks.) So i no longer calculate food, but i make a week in advance exercise plan. This week, I Bike 5 times(or days) for 20 minutes, lift weights for my arms 5 times, do yoga 5 times, and strrength train for my whole body 2 times. I do some yoga on rest days because i have night yoga that is relaxing. don't worry about me overtraining with the arms weights, cause i've been doing it for a while, i jhust need to kick it up a notch. Off to shcool. Bye

well i'm fellin pretty good about myself. i know i've lost weight because i lost1/2 an inch on my belly, and the girl i really like accepted to go out with me. the reason i've lost all the weight is because of better eating and playing b-ball.

Well, I've heard Special K cereal can help a little bit- as long as we don;t overeat on it. We can also try to eat more healthy fruits and veggies. Lastly, it always helps to exercise!

Okay this what you should do add more healthy things to your diet like fruits, vegetables, and whole grain foods. And cut in half whatever you usually eat like if you usually eat 2 slices of pizza just eat 1. And for exercise do 30 minutes of walking, running, swimming, or biking 5 days a week or everyday then do some sit-ups and push-ups. Hope this helps!

Hey I wanted to give everyone some diet tips that the stars use. Did you know Jeniffer Aniston used to weight 30 pounds moe than she does now? (She is 112 now) The way she lost the weight was by cutting out Mayonaise and Fried Foods. Easy huh. And lisa Kudrow keeps her figure by listening to the vouice inside her that tells her when she has had enough to eat. She eats whatever she wants just not alot of it! These tips are pretty easy I hope you can benefit from them.
