The best way to you lose weight is starting to eat healthy. Don't try radical diets, it's always better establish new patterns of healthy eating that can last a life time otherwise you are not going to support the new diet plan for a long time. Start slowly, try to eat less fried food and candies (let them only to the weekends). Also, start to walk or other type of exercise for 30 minutes to begin, 3 times a week, then, after you go to 5 times a week. When you see, all the good habits are going to be part of your routine.

The best and healthiest way to lose weight is by cutting down your calories and exercising. You shouldn't go below 1200 a day because your body needs that much to function. A pound of fat is 3,500 calories. You should aim to lose 1-2 lbs per week. Try to exercise at least 5 times a week for 30 minutes each time. It seems like a lot, but adding a walk in every evening or taking a bigger walk every few days will do the trick. Good luck.

hi bossdonn7 i think its the side effect of the depo thats why you gained weight. . i think you have to stop using it. .and maybe can cause more complications on your health since your still young. . maybe you can talk to your mom that she should trust you because you are her daughter. .and if you really want to go on diet maybe you should consult first a specialist before everything goes wrong on your health. . you are at the stage where physical appearance and peer pressure is really a concern. i hope you'll be enlightened..

Hi,see this info..it may help to some extent.. Seven Day Diet Regime – Targeting a weight loss of up to 4 Kgs a week Day 1 [Fruits] – Day one of your diet regime will start with all fruits diet. You may eat fruits of your choice and in any quantity. There is no limit. Eat till your stomach is full. In case you don’t find fruits in nearby stores, you can substitute it with packaged fruit juices but avoid fruit juices that have preservatives in it, they don’t really do any good in this case. On day one, you must eat fruits ONLY and don’t forget to drink at least 7 glasses of water. Note: The only fruit that will not be on your plate is Banana. Every other fruit is ok except banana. Don’t limit it to just one fruit, have as many different fruits you can. Day 2 [Vegetables] – This is all vegetables day. If you prefer, you may have raw or/and cooked vegetables. Eat as much as you want to, no quantity restrictions. If you want to cook the vegetables, you may do so but avoid using oil while you cook. 7 glasses of water today also. Day 3 [Fruits and Vegetables] – On day three, you will eat a mixture of fruits and vegetables. No quantity restrictions, eat till you fill your stomach. Also, eat one banana today, just one! Day 4 [Vegetables, Bananas and Milk] – Today you will eat 6 bananas, 3 glasses of milk and small quantity of vegetables. In the morning, your breakfast will start with 2 bananas and one big glass of milk. You will follow this in the afternoon for your lunch. In the evening eat 2 bananas, eat vegetables and drink one glass of milk. Day 5 [Rice and tomatoes] – Today you will have one cup of rice, six full tomatoes (medium size) and since you are having lots of tomatoes, drink 10 glasses of water today. Day 6 [Rice and Vegetables] – One cup of rice and raw/cooked vegetables of your choice. It’s recommended that you eat rice in the morning and for rest of the day, eat vegetables. Day 7 [Fruits, Vegetables and Rice] – On day seven, eat fruits, vegetables and 1 cup of rice. You may substitute fruits and vegetables with juices as well, but that is to avoid. This diet regime works well by burning more fat than accumulating it and since it avoids all sorts of food items that eventually gets converted to fat to become a part of your body, the weight loss is faster and harmless. http://www.bloghash.com/2007/08/a-simple-weight-loss-diet-regime/ All the best and have a NICE TIME.
