My daughter is 14, 5'7'', and 160 pounds. Do any of you have any tips on how she can lose weight?

First think about some of her eating and exercising habits. Try and approach weight loss more as achieving a healthy lifestyle.
If her diet consists of high sugar drinks and juices, look for alternatives such as diet drinks.
Try and motivate her to become active. Make a deal to take a walk 3 times a week around the neighborhood.
Remember support is important. If parents and the family has the same healthy attitude it will motivate her and let her know she is not alone.
