THIS IS TO RACHEL AGE 14. You asked me what did i eat and what kind of exercises i do. Well i eat differently day by day. Everyday i have fruit. The only kind of fruit i have been eating is apple and oranges. but it doesn't matter what kind of fruit you eat i guess. i only eat apples and oranges because we have a whole bag of them. usually i have a granola bar or a cereal bar. ( i have cinnamon toast crucnh cereal bars )i have a vegetarian burger just about everyday but they are different flavored veggie burgers. ( i happen to be a pesco-vegetarian) That's just basically what i have everyday. Sometimes i switch up. i didn't like that diet where you lose 52 pounds in 2 in a half months because you had to have grapefruit or grapefruit juice after every meal and for breakfast and lunch you had to have the same exact thing. besides i losing about the same amount of weight with my diet and with that other diet. the doctor gave that grapefruit diet to my mom.As for the exercises i do well i usually get about half an hour to a whole hour of walking. then i do about an half an hour or 2 and a half hours of aerobics and i'm not telling you to go by my diet because it may not be the right one for you. you may need more cals i don't want you to fall out or faint. the only reason why i eat so little cals is because i'm comfotable with it and my body is handling it okay. my diet my not be the right one for you. you should look at all options and see which one is best for you. you may even want to talk to your doctor about it.

firstly, i just want to say thanks for replying, and being so detailed in your plan, im certainly going to try it, but i still cant get my head around one thing. You do 1/2 hour to a full hour of running and then, aswell, do 1/2 hour to 2 1/2 hours toning. thats heaps, way too much for me. i have a treadmill and ive got some tae bo videos, do you think thatll be enough? also ive been thinking of doing some yoga, coz ive got a yoga tape. ive only got two more days of school them im on my mid semester break. its only for a week and three days but i would really like to get into a routine, with taebo, yoga and running. thanks again for writing back, i really appreciate it
