    Walk to school/uni, cut out chocolate, don't eat after 9pm...
    Exercise and eat less calories. I've learnt that if you don't have the motivation, you probably won't lose as much :/

    Well walk twice a day. Only drink water. Have three meals a day and don't snack.

    Losing weights, geddit?


    But seriously, one thing you could do is start up a sport, like maybe going swimming every week or playing sports in a club at school. If you don't want to do that, even briskly walking to and from school gets rid of calories. It's not just about exercise though - if you want to get a bigger change, cutting back on things like fast food and fatty foods in general helps. To keep you motivated in that, you could maybe have something like that every time you eat junk food, you have to do 50 star jumps or something. It'll either keep you away from the junk food in the first place, and if not, you'll have partly made up for it with the extra exercise.

    1200 is the absolute minimum the average person can eat without becoming unhealthy. I don't know her weight or height, that's why I said the average amount. I'm 5ft so I can eat less than that and be fine, but as I said that might not apply to her

    Hmm I'm not sure where you got that particular statistic from but it's silly because the term "average" is being used vaguely here. Lots of individuals have different builds i.e. weight and height hence calorie consumption between individuals will vary a lot. (it is also worth noting that online calculators are not exact meaning your actual calorie consumption could be much less or more than what the calculator tells you but it is usually close to that figure).

    Someone whose 'skinny' but has some muscle mass will consume more calories to remain at their weight than an 'average joe' who sits on his ass and does nothing

    I'm well aware, if she has the absolute minimum number of calories needed, works out and doesn't eat junk food, she will lose weight. By all accounts, 1200 is the recommended amount when trying to lose weight and the most effective

    You want to take little steps. The easiest way to start is cutting out all the junk food and liquid calories.

    1. Drink more water or stuff with no calories (like diet coke but preferably stick to water).... avoid fruit juices.

    2. No sweets (chocolate, cakes, biscuits all this junk)

    3. Walk or do some sort of excersise. Eat plenty of veggies and meat and good quality whole foods.

    4. Eat more often

    Do those 4 things and you will lose weight....its all about building good habits and getting rid of bad habits (like eating unnecessary junk). If you end up craving junk too much then pick 1 day in the week where you will treat yourself to your favourite chocolate or something but only for 1 day. Of course there's other tedious ways of losing weight but i'm just giving you something very simply to follow.

    No it's not, check any nutrition magazine and any scientific ones for that matter, they all say the same. I eat 1200 and go the gym and I have a toned body and I have great health.

    You will lose the weight don't worry just do those simple things I mentioned

    Forget all that calorie counting b.s. seriously. Nutrition is simple and does NOT need to be complex with all this calorie counting...not only will it drive you insane it will also make you spin your wheels and often leads to discouragement thus you end up not really achieving your goal and youre back to square 1.
