1. Eat breakfast.
Breakfast really is the most important meal of the day.
Your body has been deprived of nourishment for up to 8 hours; at breakfast you re fuel your body giving you energy that sets you up for the day and curbs hunger pangs later on.
More than 80% of dieters who achieve long term weight loss eat breakfast, so this is very good advice.
2. Eat greens.
Fruits and vegetables are low in calories high in water and fiber, both of which make you feel full for longer.
Aim for five servings a day, this is not as difficult as it sounds, as there are plenty of foods to choose from.
If you are in a hurry, buy green foods supplement and dilute with fruit juice for a quick nourishing snack.
3. Eat naturally
It really is common sense which foods are good and bad for you.
If you eat as naturally as you can and avoid foods with lots of additives and processing you are on the right track for long term weight loss.
4. Don’t be too hard on yourself
People who keep weight off have learned to treat themselves and not be too hard on themselves.
Eating a Pizza or burger every now and again, is not going to make you suddenly jump hugely in weight.
A treat such as this 2 or 3 times a week will not harm you at all, so long as you are sensible with the rest of your diet.
The reason many people give up dieting is simply it is to demanding in terms of what they can eat, but the reality is it does not have to be in the first place.
Proper long term weight loss and maintance is exactly that, a long term process.
The occasional treat is essential, so forget about all the foods you can never eat again, you can!
5. Have healthy convenience food
It is to easy with our hectic lifestyles to simply grab burgers, fast food, microwave meals when were in a hurry.
Make sure you have quick healthy foods in the cupboard instead.
For example, tinned fish such as salmon, sardines or Tuna are ideal.
Simply add over a baked potato with some vegetables and you have a quick meal in a matter of minutes.
6. Eat 5 times a day
Eat regular and often, five times a day to prevent insulin spikes and hunger cravings. This way you will always feel full and more energetic.
7. Eat protein and carbohydrate together
Always try and eat carbohydrate and protein together at every meal.
Protein stabilizes insulin levels, which leads to steady energy throughout the day. One more benefit, eating protein has been shown to reduce your appetite.
Protein and carbohydrate work together so should be eaten together for long term health.
8. Drink water
Yes, you have heard it numerous times before:
Drink 2 liters of water per day to help with long term weight loss
Many of our hunger pangs are really thirst pangs so reach for the water first. Also water is essential in the fat buring process so make sure you get plenty each day.
Long term weight loss be realistic and sensible
The above is really common sense and allows you flexibility and choice in your eating habits.
To achieve long term weight loss incorporate the above in your diet and you will find it easier to stick with a diet as well as feeling healthy and more energetic.

According to several fitness pros, you should eat mostly carbs before workouts and mostly protein after.
Why? Carbs are used for energy. Protein is mostly used to repair your body's cells (example: to repair tissues that have been "broken down" from using weights.) Fats are used for several things: for satiety (keeping full longer), taste, and they help you to absorb certain vitamins. You will hear bodybuilders refer to these as "macro nutrients." It doesn't matter if you don't want to look like a body builder...it is only a matter of severity. You can just use their knowledge to get rid of your fat, not to bulk up. It takes a lot of effort to get "bulky" anyway.
So, how much do you need? Depends who you ask. Someone will always disagree with someone else on this, so that's why you need to search and also see what works best for you. I haven't found the "magic number" yet, but I do my best workouts (and feel my best) if I have COMPLEX carbs (not white flours or sugars, which are processed) 1-4 hours before. You should think about foods in "servings." If you eat 1-2 servings of carbs and 0.5-1 servings of protein (and vegetables too) before a workout that will probably do you good. Sometimes, simple sugars will sustain you (example: orange juice) before, but if you are working at a high intensity (which is often required to lose fat), you need to eat complex carbs, which will stay in your system longer. But they also need to be eaten at least an hour before so your body can have a head start at breaking them down before you work out. Remember, when you are exercising, your body uses the majority of your blood to work your heart and transfer oxygen and broken down carbs (glucose, aka energy) to muscles. When you're done exercising, your body goes back to metabolising your food. So be careful not to eat or drink too much, just a little to give you a little omph (energy!)
After your work out, you should have fast release protein with a fast release carb (simple carb). The best proteins are protein (isolate) powders or egg whites and the best carbs are simple carbs such as a cup of juice or chocolate milk. It is also a good idea to do this first thing in the morning after your body has been fasting (sleeping), but you can eat a few more carbs and add fat as well if you like.
To answer the first part of your question, Body-for-LIFE suggests you eat 6 small meals a day. These meals should include one serving of lean protein and one serving of complex carbohydrates. You should eat at least 3 servings of vegetables (I think 5+ would be better) and 1 serving of fat (omega 3's) such as 1 tbsp of natural peanut butter or flaxseed oil or 1 serving of salmon. It doesn't matter your gender because 1 serving is the size of the palm of your hand. Also, take a multivitamin and drink lots of water (2-4 liters per day). I'm only suggesting BFL as a guideline...the people who follow the program have amazing results! The program seems fairly balanced and healthy also.
The more you know the science, the better you can play around with your diet and lose weight easier by working with your body chemistry rather than working against and feeling defeated. You can do it!!!
Have your parents check this out with you, but I think they will approve it for you. Please read my blog about the obesity in my family and how I've overcome the battle of the buldge! I've been on that weight loss/gain roller coaster, too. Here's what I did and I have faith it will work for you to - once and for all to get to your desired weight and stay there!
You can safely and quickly lose 9 pounds every 11 days on this diet plan and keep repeating it until you lose to your goal weight. The computer will write the diet meals/snack menu for you so there's nothing you have to do, but eat what is planned for you. It's healthy, easy and you'll get incredibly fast results!
Exercise: strength training 3 days a week and either fast walking, or running the other days. Drink at least 64 ounces of water each day.
Remember: calories in minus calories burned = gain or lost weight at the end of each day.

You have to come up with some type of a reward system, this will help keep you motivated. One of the best things to do is make a contingency contract. Stating what you want to do, who will help you do it, and what do you get for doing it.
Then also try to find a well balance diet program. My friend did this one diet program where the average weight lose is 7 pounds in 9 days. It might be the thing you are looking for, I know it's well balanced. If you want e-mail me and I can tell you more about either of these.

jogging is an excellent exercise because it let you lose weight
evenly throughout your whole body. If you want to lose weight in
specific areas, you should target them with exercises. If they are
your problem areas, they will be very difficult to tone. You will have
to work double on them. The best approach is this:
1. Lower/control your daily calorie intake (control for normal
weight, lower for overweight).
2. Run/jog to lower your overall body fat percentage.
3. Target your problem areas with exercises.
an excellent exercise, you can do it in front of your TV: sit on a
stool, and put your toes under something (piece of heavy furniture,
for example). In your hands hold a little dumbbell. Please, make sure
that it is not very heavy, start with one kilo, for example, or you
will damage your back and spine! Slowly move the upper part of your
body back, until it's parallel with the ground. Stop for a second and
move it back to the sitting position. Repeat ten times. Every week add
to the number of repetitions. You will see the results in a week,
guaranteed! You will see or feel under the fat - if you have any - six
pack and muscles. Dumbbells do wonders. Much better than these
crunches - I came up to three hundreds and there was no results AT
ALL. With the dumbbells you will see it in a week.
