The best way is to combine exercise (walking, then work up to running everyday along with weight training every other day-try Jari Love DVDs) and eating around 1400 calories a day, of unprocessed (not stuff in bags and boxes with lots of unpronounceable ingredients) foods like fruit, vegetables, lean cuts of meat in small portions (about 4 oz/meal) and no sugar! Lots of fiber (oatmeal, cheerios, low cal popcorn) and non sweetened beverages (like water or fitwater). You have youth on your side, because you have lots of HGH (human growth hormone) that will speed up your metabolism if you exercise, build muscle, and eat several small meals a day. Good're awesome and you can do this!!!!Health Question & Answer

Dont take pills or anything just change your habits and be healthy. i have kept my weight off for more than 3 years just be smart and dont go to fast it wont happen overnite just be patient and stick to your goal... good luckHealth Question & Answer

The weightwatchers nocount plan is really good. It has a list of foods that you can eat, three meals a day, eat until you feel full. You can snack on fruit inbetween meals and have a few extra calories a day for extras (like mayonaise etc).

It's good because you have the freedom to eat normally, and not feel like you're on a diet.

As for exercise, I find brisk walking the best! Get a dog and take him for walks :-)Health Question & Answer

Any kind of exercise is good. Walk, walk after dinner. No eating out. The meal you would have out would have 100s of more calories then one you could make at home. Just portion control and exercise. If you are watching TV do lunges, leg lifts, sit ups, push ups, etc. Drink more water. Pop, juices, drinks have 100+ calories per serving. Drink more water because there are no calories and it is GREAT for your body. Hope this helped some.Health Question & Answer
