Question: I've been doing pushups and situps, as well as running a mile a day. But I'm not sure if I'll loose the last 20 pounds I've been trying to loose. Football begins in a month, and so I'm trying to make get into better shape.

Losing 20 pounds in a month and getting into shape are not the same thing. If you are in the weight room (as you should be to play football -- assuming you mean the American sort) you are gaining muscle mass. It weighs more than fat. Instead of concentrating on losing 20 pounds in a month, try working on your body fat percentage instead. It will serve you better as an athlete. Something to be careful of .. if you try to lose too much weight too quickly, you will be weakening your body. NOT a good thing for a football player.

The best and easiest way to lose weight is to eat less calories a day then you burn and drink tons and tons or water, maybe 2 gallons a day if you can stomache it. If you eat 1200 calories a day then you should try and burn just as much by working out. Even walking would make you loose quick because at your age it will just come off in no time. Just remember that if you don't eat at all you will eventually gain weight. Your bodys metabolism speeds up and slows down with the number of calories that you take in. If you don't eat then your metabolism will drasticly slow down so when you do eat, your store all that food and it becomes fat cells. Eat 5-6 small and healthy meals a day. Breakfast is the most important because if you don't eat breakfast then your body thinks that it's not going to receive food so when you do eat later in the day your body will store all that fat that you just ate for later. DRINK TONS OF WATER!

You definitely won't lose 20 pounds. At the most people lose around 1 to 2 pounds a week. You might be able to lose 10 but you'll have to run more than a mile and diet as well. Cut 500 calories or so from your diet a day.

Yes, but it is horrible for your health. Unless you weigh 500 pounds, all from fat, that's not going to happen. To lose weight, you need to do cardio such as running. Try to increase the distance and speed.

If you low carb it and do an hour of exercise after hour every meal you will lose 30 pounds in 1 month.

Yes you can lose 10 pounds in one month if you just stop drinking sodas...and if you can't stop cold turkey then start working on it as soon as possible. Trust me it does work.

10 pounds is a lot to lose in just one month, but you can make some good progress if you drink 2 cups water and do some cardio each morning like a brisk walk/jog for 30-60 minutes first thing when you wake up, then have fresh fruit of your choice - 1-2 pieces or one cups worth of whatever is in season. Then have a a quart size water bottle to sip on little by little during the day as you have special interests or hobbies to focus on rather than eating. Then, when you are hungry, you can have half a plate of raw or cooked vegetables with no added fat, 1/4 of your plate as beans for protein that's high nutrient and high fiber and low calorie. 1/4 of your plate as some brown rice or a baked potato or no-added fat potato dish. Then, sip on another quart size water bottle little by little as you read a book or some other hobby for the next hour or two. Then, time to exercise again - try some indoor dancing for about 30 minutes. Then, have a fresh fruit Then wait until you are hungry and have all you want of some minestrone soup until you are full. And then keep busy and when you are hungry again have some beans and rice with salsa or another no-fat, high-fiber meal. The fiber carries out the fat. And, limit fresh fruits to about 2-3 daily or they turn to fat. Avoid animal products that have fat and stress your immune system. Your metabolism will do much better witht the beans and you can also try lentils and other types of beans. Go to bed early and don't eat before bed, if you are hungry still then have some cooked vegetables with seasoning but no fat. During the day chew your food really thoroughly it helps you to be satisfied on less calories longer
