How can I lose 30lbs?

I am 13 I am 5.1 I way 125 how can I loose 30 pounds

Answer #1

I wish people will stop having a go at her because she’s 13. My sister is 13 and she has stopped growing for life. I stopped growing at 14, it can happen at any age.

There’s some good tips here and in other peoples weight loss questions too. Do it however you want but dont get yourself admitted to hospital.

This is what I do Sleep in on weekends so you miss breakfast and even sleep in before school - miss breakfast because youre running late or just have a small bit of whole grain bread or some low fat milk. I have a little fruit - 2 strawberries, small mandarin etc at recess and I dont have lunch. At night I skip dinner most of the time - I just tell my mum I had a lot at lunch, sometimes I only eat half, sometimes I say I’m sick and sometimes I eat it but then do full on exercise afterwards. Drink a lot of cold water and chew gum when you feel like eating - it tricks your brain into thinking youre eating - its your brain that tells you you’re full, not your stomach. Your brain doesnt know how much is in your stomach, believe it or not it actually counts how many times you chew. think of yourself being obese and gross and you wont want to eat or think about how good you’ll look in clothes and how much people will compliment you when you’re skinny. I used to be really skinny (size 0-2) and when people talked about being skinny they would always bring me up. Now I’m bigger (size 6ish) and im hardly noticed anymore and I hate that I know im an attention seeker but im not denying it - being skinny rocks

Answer #2

Do you want the right way or the wrong way?

Right Way: Eat healthy foods but try to limit it, go for a thirty minute walk every day. That little goes a long way.


Other Way: Drink water, chew gum, and exercise excessively. That is helping me.

  How to LOSE weight?

First, determine from the information below, what your weight should be. Then set yourself goals of a week, 2 weeks, a month, 3 months, 6 months and a year. As you see yourself meeting your goals it becomes easier. Remember, you didn’t gain your weight overnight so don’t expect to lose if overnight. Plus, weight lost slowly is more likely to stay off than weight lost in a hurry.

BMI (Body Mass Index) is a measurement of body fat based on height and weight that applies to both men and women between the ages of 18 and 65 years.

BMI Classification

25 to 29.99 Overweight
30 to 34.99 Obesity (Class 1)
35 to 39.99 Obesity (Class 2)
40 or greater Morbid Obesity

Check out your BMI at the bmi calculator site below to see where you stand.

“How can I Lose 1 pound of body weight per week?”

One pound of body fat is equal to about 3500 calories. So to lose 1 pound of weight per week, you need to eat 500 calories/day LESS than you burn.

But it’s not a good idea to lose weight simply by cutting calories. As well as decreasing calories you should increase your daily physical exercise. This helps to burn calories and build more lean tissue which in turn burns more calories.

“What should a minimum calorie intake be?”

As a guide to minimum calorie intake, the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) recommends that calorie levels never drop below 1200 calories per day for women or 1800 calories per day for men. Even these calorie levels are quite low.
