I’m a 16 year old girl. I am 6’3” and weight 228 lbs. Before I start college in 1 month, how much weight can I lose and how do I lose it? Obviously I know to exercise (which I have been doing - exercise bike an hour a day - but I’m not sure if that’s enough?) and eat healthy but with my age, it’s difficult to cook healthy meals. Any help would be greatly appreciated

I'd look at food labels and see whether you've had too much saturated fat for example. Lifesum is also a great app for this. An hour of exercise is fine but it mostly depends on the calories gained. You could try missing a meal a day (easy for some, difficult for others) as a method of eating in a calorie deficit.

A healthy and sustainable weight loss is up to 2lbs a week. You can use an online calculator to work out your calorie deficit, then achieve that through diet and exercise.

Don't skip meals just to be in a deficit, though, as it can mean you are missing out on nutrition that your body needs, as at 16 you are still developing.

Why does your age make it difficult to cook your own meals? At 16 you should be able to do your own food. If it's to do with family, watch your portion sizes.

Everyone is different when it comes to losing weight. Some folks are lucky and can lose weight just from skipping a single meal!

Try this:

1. Eat less. Way Less. Maybe just a couple of eggs for breakfast. Something light for lunch with carbs, protein, good fats. Only fruits for dinner.
2. Don't just eat less. Eat low-calorie foods. Stay away from processed food. Stop taking sugar. Even drinks—NO sugary drinks.
3. Drink lots of water. If you think you're already drinking lots. Drink more! It will help reduce hunger.
4. Exercise every day. Take a day off each week. If you have the time, exercise 2 hours in the morning, then again in the evening. Make sure the exercises you're doing are increasing your heart rate. If your light jog is not making your heart pump faster, you should be jogging faster.
5. Fast. Try fasting for 48 hours. So no food for 48 hours. But you can drink water. If 48 hours sounds too extreme, try 24 hours first. But don't just sleep the whole way through. Carry on your day as usual.

Here are some cardio ideas you can do from home:

IDEA 2


Whichever way you decide to lose weight, make sure you don't neglect your health. If you ever feel weak or unwell, make sure you stop what you're doing. Consult your GP if you want to be on the safe side.

This is completely unsustainable.

1-2 lbs a week is considered a sustainable rate so 4-8lbs is realistic

Don't do this, or any other fad diet! It's not healthy or sustainable, and you won't get the nutrition you need.

Don't pick and choose the answers that you like. For example, you've not answered my question about why you can't have healthy meals...

I agree that it is not sustainable but I used to do it for 5 days a week, go back to eating a healthy balanced diet for a few days, and repeated the process until I reached my goal weight. But this diet itself gives you all the nutrients you need. it's just low in carbs. I would recommend doing it for a short period of time.

And you are suggesting this to a 16yo whose body is still developing and who doesn't understand how weight loss works????

There is no point in fad diets or rapid weight loss. Healthy eating and exercise are all that is needed.

I meant with my current situation in the post- nothing to do with my age. I’m not picking and choosing, I 100% understand that eating healthy and exercising is what I need to do but the egg diet isn’t far off from what I eat in a day anyway- I’ve never really eaten much but just unlucky with my body I guess

On average, it should be 1 to 2 lbs per week

If you are following something like the egg diet you aren't eating heathily and you wouldn't need to lose weight if you were eating very few calories. So what exactly is stopping you having healthy meals? Unless you've been diagnosed with a medical condition that affects your weight, you aren't 'unlucky', there's something else gping on.

This spring I really wanted to lose weight to look better in the summer. On Canadian pharmacy I read that you need to exercise regularly, drink vitamins and plenty of water, eat healthy food. I started running every morning and each time increased the distance, tried to eat healthier food and more fruits and vegetables, took a complex of vitamins and drank a lot of water. I lost enough weight and I started to love myself more. Now I train to always be in shape and it's so cool!

This is so unhealthy and could endanger your health. Don’t do this please, take care of yourself and lose the weight healthily. One to two pounds a week is fine. Focus on healthier meals and moderate exercise. Be patient. Healthy weight loss has to be a sustainable life change Xxx
