    hi

    I've been overweight for some time now and i decided that i would need to start losing some weight especially around the hip area and i'm also quite short so i would have to look slimmer than normal people my age (16). I need tips on how to lose weight

    This is my daily life:
    I walk to school which takes me around 30 minutes or i sometimes ride which is quicker at about 20 minutes. I don't do any physical subjects that i'm doing (year 12) and i tend to sometimes go and play football with my friends at lunch. Recently in the past 2 weeks i've slowly reduced the amount of food that i eat and i started doing some random excercises in the evenings for about 20 minutes which involves stretching and etc.

    Apart from the things i've already tried is there any other way to lose some weight more efficient? i've seen small difference in the past two weeks and please do not suggest gym because i simply do not have the time nor the money required to go to gym.

    Thanks

    What's most important for losing fat is to track your calorie intake. I use myfitnesspal, it's very useful. Use this website to get your BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) and cut 500 calories from that.

    A little bit of exercise on top and you should lose 0.5-1lb a week!

    ive lost a significant amount of weight and yes its time consuming and also hard. the best advice I can offer you is to eat simple foods/meals like wholegrain sandwiches for lunch and simple dinner's like chicken, and to only snack on fruits. also make sure you drink a lot of water. don't go on any diets...it doesn't work! and I also drank green tea three times a day after half an hour after every meal.
    but if you just want to lose fat, then warm lemon water in the night and morning is really effective! hope it helps x
