    I can't let my parents find out but NEED to lose it quickly so anyone got any tips? I'm already doing 50 sit-ups a night and have kind of given up on breakfast ( mum knows about that) and lunch ( that she doesn't know) but it doesn't seem to be working!!! So yeah need help. Any advice? Thanks

    You lose weight based on calorie consumption and energy expenditure. How much you eat v how much you burn. You shouldnt try to lose more than 0.5- 2lb a week depending on your weight and height. Those sit ups might burn the equivalent of 2 biscuits or less Controlling your food is your first step to losing weight, that means measuring what you eat by weighing and logging it so you are at a consistent accurate calorie deficit of between.250 and 500 a day, more depending on whats safe for your stats. Weight loss you keep off is done slow and steady. Weight loss you do as a fad or crash diet tends to come back becayse you go back to eating more than you need and put it all back on again.

    Go and join MFP and get yourself some kitchen scales. You might also start doing regular exercise and learning some nutrution.

    Don't, it's drastically unhealthy.

    Starving yourself won't making you lose weight when you go into 'starvation mode'. Skipping meals is unhealthy.

    Just eat healthy, drink lots of water, and exercise.
    There is never a good reason to lose a huge amount of weight, fast. It's not sustainable anyway.
