What the simplest way to lose weight for a teenager?

Okay I’m 16, 162 pound and I’m 5ft 5. I’m not fat but I’m not skinny either. I try to be healthy but it’s not working. I have trouble sticking to plans. I don’t have access to a gym but i do have a treadmill and it bores me to death so I have problem keeping up with walking on the treadmill everyday.I just want to know what works? If you do have solid advice, I’ll take anything as long as its simple. Please some good advice :)

Hello,

“How can you lose weight? With diet and exercise. The key to success is developing healthy diet and exercise habits. Diet just means eating healthy, lower calorie meals. Exercise means being more active.” (mayoclinic)

Here are some tips in losing weight:

1) Set reasonable goals. For Ex, I want to lose 10 pounds in one month.
2) Focus on your diet.
Count calories and keep a food diary.
Go on a low-calorie diet.
Cut down on sugar, high fructose corn syrup, trans fats and saturated fats.
Burn more calories by exercising: Run, walk, even exercise at the computer you are sitting in front of now.
Raise your metabolism.” (wikihow)

3) Use the “Food and Fitness Planner” and “BMI Plus Calculator” on http://www.webmd.com/diet/default.htm
4) Be motivated by your willpower, your friends, families, and even online sites!
5) Keep researching – There are so much FREE information in the Internet! You can also get tips from online forums and video clips from youtube!

6)More than losing weight is being healthy. There are four type of health you should be aware of: physical, mental/emotional, social, and spiritual.

PHYSICAL HEALTH –
Eat a well-balanced deit.
Participate in regular physical activity.

Pay attention to what you say and how you say it.
Be a loyal, truthful, and dependable friend.
Learn to disagree without arguing and show respect for others.
Don’t insult others or put them down. (Teen Health)
SPIRITUAL HEALTH –

1. Is Jesus in your life?
2. How is your walk with God?
3. What do you know about God?
4. Do you believe you are going to Heaven?
5. What is your purpose in life?
6. Do you feel empty inside despite all you have attained and did?
7. Are you always ready to forgive and give to others?
8. Are you overflowing with love and joy?
9. Who do you call for help first? (The Creator or The Creation)
10. Do you believe your faith is strong enough?

Michael asks…

how can i lose weight easily?

im 16 years old, i weight 145.4 lbs and im 5’3 ( i have heavy muscle which is possible to have)
a lot of people say i only look about 120lbs but i still want to lose weight (and i noticed ive been losing a bit of weight but nothing drastic). anyways back to my point i want an easy way to lose weight and get a nice tone in my body. i walk daily and i eat healthy for a teenager, i drink lots of water and tea. all i want is a simple diet and easy workout routine nothing hardcore. i want to tone out my thighs mostly. and i have no problem with going to the gym ,or doing yoga. i can also get a treadmill ! im looking to lose about 25lbs and afterwards just have a simple workout to follow to keep my weight maintained and my body toned . also how long will take to do this ?! anything you would like to add that might help or as suggestion would be great but no rude comments (:
ps.it would be nice if i can keep my butt cause i like it.

answers:

Losing 10 lbs a month is a good and safe target. Any faster weight loss is likely to be temporary only and in most cases you regain it all.

Running, jogging, cycling, swimming, dancing, push ups, sit ups, squats, brisk walking and power walking all help for weight loss but dieting helps more.

One of the healthiest weight loss diets is the DASH diet.

The healthy DASH diet can help you lose weight safely and effectively, lower your cholesterol and lower your blood pressure.

It is based on an eating plan rich in fruits and vegetables, and low-fat or non-fat dairy, with whole grains. It is a high fiber, low to moderate fat diet, and is rich in potassium, calcium, and magnesium.

You can see further details in a web search for “dash diet” + “lose weight”.
