Sorry , but the best way to loose weight is through exercise . And i know its a drag , but exercise is great ! Especially if you do it with a friend or something :) Its great stress relief and you feel great afterwards !! Something that makes me want to go out and exercise is having a goal or something , me and my best friend , every year start exercising as soon as its not too cold outside and our motivation -- end of year school trip to this water park . Also , eat healthy , don't eat anything that requires opening something . This generally means that the food has preservatives in it , which aren't good for you . So stick to things like fruit , vegetables , bread and meat :) hope that helps !!

I found this on this website. There are more tips and info. 1. If what you are eating has less than 1 carb, count it as 1 carb just to be sure. 2. Totally avoid caffine at least for the first two weeks on the program. 3. Drink a MINIMUM of 8 glasses of plain water or seltzer daily. 4. Don't weigh yourself more than once a week 5. Take starting measurements as well as weight - sometimes you'll lose inches before pounds 6. Avoid any type of "low carb" sweetener for the first two weeks 7. Don't compare your loss to someone else's - this is a YMMV thing (your milage may vary) 8. Stalls are common around the third week so don't panic 9. If you follow your plan to the T and don't lose, consider Candida as a possibility and avoid vinegar, cheese, mushrooms and any other fermented food 10. Have bloodwork done before starting so you have a comparison 11. Cholesterol can be elevated in the first few weeks til your body adjusts - make sure your doctor knows that you're doing low carb and when you started 12. Don't blame the diet if you don't read your plan book -- blame the diet if you don't read the labels -- Don't blame the diet if you don't follow the diet

The Master Cleanser. Hands down. No lie. It works. It's also known as the Lemonade Diet. Originally written in the 1940's by Dr. Stanley Burroughs and has lasted since then as an effective and SAFE means to diet and lose weight quickly, although it was originally designed as a means to cleanse the body of toxins. Just ask Beyonce or Robin Quivers or Jared Leto.

First off, for being 17, and 145 lbs, you sound like your at a perfect weight. The foods you are eating seem good for you. I recommend pumping some iron. more muscle means more calories burned to maintain it, thus speeding up your metabolism which can help you reach your goal. Try a lot of aerobic exercises, like jogging, hicking or sports (track basketball football etc.) Drink plenty of water and dont eat prior to going to bed. Leave at least 3 hours between dinner and sleep. Get a lot of sleep.

Hi there, I think you might be getting a little mixed up with what you want exactly. You say that you want to lose "weight" but that means you might want to get rid of some muscle too. You then say that you'd like to "shape" (I'd call it tone) your body a little which implies you want to build some muscle. I'm not trying to pick at your question - I just want to clarify the point for you. To answer it in the best way, I am going to look at it as if you want to get rid of fat AND build muscle at the same time. If you're looking to "trim" and "tone" your body, and espectially because you suggest you are not that overweight, I would suggest you start performing more intensive aerobic exercises such as jogging. I wouldn't think you need to change the whole way you eat or go on a diet because if you're wanting to build muscles - it's better to do it all with exercise. Exercises like jogging won't exactly "build" your muscles on your stomach but they will help reduce the extra fat around there. Depending on how fit you are, you should go on daily or bi-daily jogs of around a mile. To build muscles, you should concentrate on anaerobic exercises such as sit-ups to help build muscles. These muscle-building exercises will give your muscles the toning and training they need to grow and become more prominent. To start to see a real difference with sit-ups, you should be looking to do no more than 100 every day (more than that will often hurt your muscles). If you stick to doing those two forms of exercise - jogging and sit-ups, you should see real improvements in a week or two. Remember, you should do them as often as you can (I.E every single day).

Eating fewer calories is how you lose weight. Make better food choices instead of counting calories, though. Don't eat less, eat more of fruits and greens. Not only will you lose weight but you'll become healthier. Meats, starches and especially dairy are calorie dense and actually not good for you. Three people I know used diet pills and they developed stomach/intestinal issues. We are such an Rx generation in more ways than one!! Everyone wants to take a pill for everything, which is a shame! They may work now, but you will suffer later, no doubt about it.
