Any other tips?

My first idea would be to not sit on internet forums asking stupid questions.

Jogging/cycling and putting down the knife and fork would definitely be in the top three.

I have heard that chocolate with higer then 60% coco is very helpful when you want to loose weight, but i might be wrong...


That's true, because it speeds up metabolism and some forms of uptake.

You shouldn't consider working out since you don't have that much to lose.

Well, that's never true.
You should always be in shape - because that's healthy.
The fact that he shouldn't exhaust himself is also correct.

Also - if people don't particularly want to do RUNNING sports, jogging and walking is actually healthier in some cases.

Tbh, you're better off eating 5 smaller meals a day instead of 3 large ones. Think about it. I was told this by my school's fitness trainer.

I very seldom eat 3 large meals a day. I usually go to McDonalds at about 7am, and get a bunch of stuff, then McDonalds again at like 11am, then McDonalds again at like 3pm, then McDonalds again at like 7pm, then usually, McDonalds again at 11pm or 1am.

I maintain a nice weight of 140lbs at 6'0 with 6% body fat.

then @ the age of... whenever when you get congestive heart failure... and at your feuneral, you'll look FINE!

Trans fat isn't fattening, it just clogs your heart. Plus at your age (probably in your teens) your metabolism is still really high, just wait until your 25, and keep that diet up... you'll see....


What I do is drink a hell of a lot of Green Tea, Eat smaller meals in large amounts, usually grains and fruits, with a heavy dose of Protein for Lunch (<3 Jimmie John's Sandwiches) and I get about 1 hour of exercise in a day. Get your Heart beating hardcore, from what I hear Cardio is what helps you loose the most weight.

Another good trick, when your walking, Tighten up your Stomach muscles as you walk, its seriously just like doing sit ups.

Oh I know most kids metabolisms are fast when they're young, and I am only 18, but that's not really the truth, most kids my age, can eat a bit and not get fat. But to eat McDonalds 5 times a day, throw Wendy's in there once or twice, also soda + brownies + candy in my mini-fridge in my bedroom by my computer, eating probably like 20-30 thousand calories a day. Not many kids can manage that and still stay healthy. My dad is now 48, he does the same thing, no heart problems, he's not overweight, my grandfather just about does the same thing, no heart problems there either, no fat problems. My dad is a prick, but in this case it just shows that my grandfather remains healthy while eating horribly and having NO physical activity, my father eats just as bad as me and remains healthy with NO physical activity, he doesn't have a job, the ONLY time he leaves the house is to get food for himself. I eat just as much as them, but have physical activity, sports and working out and what not.

Lol, I'm pretty much in the same position as the OP: 15 years old, 5"7' and 215lbs as of a few month back.

Then I started eating right, and I've been exercising a lot more (I got a gym membership and I go every other day now for like an hour and a half)

Now I'm at like 180lbs and I'm doing fine, it's not hard at all. You've just got to start exercising and stick to it, I know it's cliche and at first I didn't believe it, but after seeing results I can't exactly say that it doesn't work icon_razz.gif

Same here, most of my friends are like that. It makes me mad, cause I really have to watch what I eat.

If you're American, then yes you are. To be what the American Medical Association or Surgeon General or whatever the fuck it is, to be healthy in their eyes, at like 18 years old, the average height is like 5'11 and the average weight is like 161. I'm 18 and 6'0 and 140lbs and I'm considered underweight. You're taller and lighter.

It all depends on body type, mayne. Body type.

As long as you eat well and exercise, if that's your normal weight, you're fine.

I just ran on a treadmill for 1 hour straight and I fell exhausted right now but at the same time I feel great. If I can do that, or even half of that, on a daily basis then I'll be good to go in no time. This is of course coupled with strength training.

Good on ya mate! I remember that when I started, it was really hard to force myself to work out, but now I enjoy it quite a bit. It is a good feeling.

But don't forget to give yourself a bit of a rest period between a hard workout. If your muscles are tired the next day, don't just go out and do more weight training, cause you'll hurt yourself. I usually exercise/weight train every other day, just to make sure that I don't hurt myself.

If I may ask, how fast were you running? I usually go for a half hour at either 4.5 or 5.5 MPH, to end my workout.

This is very true, you need to allow your muscles to heal, that is how they grow, they tear when being used and then heal stronger. If you have a rigorous routine training every other day would be good, on your off days you could always do stretching etc.

About 3-4.5 MPH most of the time and I did get faster for a good 10-20 mins at like 4-5 MPH and then I slowed down quite a bit a few times due to being tired. IDK, an average of about 3 MPH.

For lunch, eat a salad.
Bread helps too, it feels you up without FILLING you up.

Crunches are the best for the abdominal area, you'll lose lots of weight that way.
And guaranteed, weight lost tends to stay off.


Dont listen to this guy.
Bread is just carbohydrates, what you need to do is eat 5 meals a day of proteins and a tiny bit of carbs, while working out. My uncle is a Dietition so trust meh! ><

Silly OP - You ARE in shape. Round *IS* a shape...

Now, at your weight - I wouldn't recommend trying to burn fat, but rather - developing muscle.

Instead of doing cardio each 2nd day, do some weight training and bulk your chest, arms and legs. Naturally, the rest will follow in time.
I'm 6ft and weigh 139kg as of this morning (if its any conselation) down from 154 at few months ago.

But as many others have said - your main problem regarding weight loss is your self esteem. Beat yourself up or think low of yourself and you're getting nowhere fast. Besides, what the hell is wrong with being a slightly larger model? hmmm? icon_wink.gif

Provided you're eating moar healthy and putting in some work here and there - you should be perfectly fine. Remember that icon_wink.gif

I'd go with tubbys idea of replacing it with muscle and you'll notice a nice difference.
