I'm kind of embarrassed about this so could you maybe just read the detail?
Okay, so I want to lose weight the healthy way... but I never have any time for exercise between school and homework and my parents [mom especially] get into this talk mode thats weird and makes me feel even more embarrassed! So, i don't think that I can buy any sort of products, but I want to lose about... 50 lbs? please help :)

Just so you know, I have a relatively slow metabolism, I don't want those ads for "Colon Clearing" and "Acai Berry" cuz I can't afford them or buy them, and here's my schedule so maybe I can do this without my parents noticing?
5:30 a.m. Wake Up for school
6:30 a.m. walk to bus stop
7:20 a.m. school starts
2:05 p.m. school ends
2:30 p.m. I get home
2:30-6:00 p.m. or later Homework
9:00 p.m. Get in shower
9:30-10:00 p.m. Go to sleep

And, those homework hours vary from day to day, but are often longer than to 6:00, and I have to eat dinner from sometime in btween all of that, normally between 7:00 and 8:00

wake up earlier to get some exercise in there. if you can't spare to wake up ealier then while you're doing homework every 15 minutes or so get on the ground and do some crunches and push-ups. you can also do that during commercial breaks when you're watching tv (if you do). also eat healthy. take healthy meals and snacks to school. if you don't pack your lunch then buy a fruit and sandwich and bottle of water from school. try to have water and fruit everyday at school for lunch.

jog to the bus stop, eat healthy and good luck, its awesome you want to be healthy

would try this workout. But at the same time you will be gaining muscule and burning fat. So its awesome.

WHAT YOU'LL NEED: Two 5 pounds weights.
* means one 5 pound weight in each hand.

If you don't have two 5 pound weights try using water bottles full of water.

*20 Bench Press x3
20 squats x3
*20 side arm lifts x3
20 crunches x3
20 push-ups x3
*20 lunges x3
20 leg lifts x3
Walk for 30 mins

Stretching before your workout helps you not to pull a muscule during your workout.

Stretching after your workout helps you not be AS sore afterward.

I try to do this everyday, but I'm sure you would get results doing this only 2-4 days a week. I recomend everyday.

Eat 1500 calories a day and drink 8 glasses of water daily.

You will lose weight and tone up!

I've lost 6 pounds and I've only been doing it for a week!

You can do it! i know you can!

You will be sore. and it will hurt but you can do it.

Don't be scared to add more excercises of more reps.

Hope this works for you!

Cut down on sugary drinks and energy-dense foods. Reshape your meals to include a higher proportion of vegetables, fruits, whole grains and beans.. Raise your physical activity level to help you reduce stress, lose weight and decrease your cancer risk Can’t manage your weight through steps 1 and 2 alone? It may be time to take a look at the size of the portions you're eating.

If these three steps do not lead to gradual weight loss, don't reach for a fad diet book. See a physician or dietitian and ask for a weight loss program suited to your individual needs.

There's a couple things you can do. But you need commitment- if you form good habits I think you'll do just fine.
First eat dinner earlier. If that means finishing leftover homework at 7 and eating at 6, then do it. Eat less during dinner and eat more for lunch. Some people skip breakfast but I wouldn't recommend that; a glass of milk and an apple would be a good breakfast. Something on those lines.
Do you really need an hour to get ready for school? If you can shorten the time to half an hour, which is how long I take normally, sometimes less, then you can spend time in the morning exercising. My neighbor goes out in the morning for a jog before catching the bus; you might want to try that.
Try out for a school team or if see your district has any recreational leagues like basketball, etc. There may be a small fee, but your parents probably won't think you're joining because you want to lose wait. Plus, they're fun.
Eat smaller portions, and eat healthy, drink more water, LAUGH, and don't be too stressed out.
And do some more research by yourself; I'm sure you'll find some really good ideas online.
I hope this helps. Good luck! =)

The answer to this question may not be what you wanted to hear.
First: You need to make 30 minutes for exercise everyday. It appears that you have quite a busy homework schedule but if you put a break of 30 minutes in there not only would you be exercising you would also relax your mind and refresh your body. This could possibly help you to reduce the time you spend doing homework. I am saying this as a college student that lost 40 pounds in about 3 months the healthy way.
Second: You need to change your diet. Cut out the fatty foods but make sure you find things to snack on that you like. For example, I really like carrots and dressing. I use a little dressing and a bunch of cut carrots or baby carrots for my snack in the afternoon. Also cut mayo and butter out of your diet. That stuff slows your metabolism down. Use mustard instead.
If you really can not make time to exercise in the afternoon, is there anyway you can walk or ride your bike to school? I walk or ride my bike to the grocery to pick up things to eat and it helps me get a little cardiovascular exexercisen that I may have lost due to a car or bus ride. Plus if anyone makes fun of you, I know in high school they made fun of me, tell them your concerned about the environment and call them pigs for drireview
To review everything, excersise (pick something you like to do), eat better (Again food and recipes that you like) and you should notice a boost in energy and a drop in unwanted pounds. It will be slow going at first but be patient. The results will come!


Well, to begin you have to start eating dinner a lot earlier, b.c slow metabolism or regular eating late at night it's good at all.
So I guess you'll have to rearrange your times for homework to include eating dinner a little earlier.
And make sure that you don't eat snacks WHILE doing homework, b/c you won't notice how much you are eating if you are distracted.
Other than that, start doing a little excercise routine like going on a 15 minute walk after dinner, or even if you walk around while doing homework or go on a treadmill while studying? There are always ways to balance things out as long as you are determined good luck =]

One way to increase your metabolism is to eat five times a day. First find your recommended calorie intake. From this divide it by five. It doesn't have to be exact or anything like that it can vary. From there eat breakfast. then eat a snack in between classes or even in class. My teachers dont care. then eat whatever lunch they have no pizza. then eat a snack after school. and eat dinner. through this your metabolism will increase and you can lose weight. Uh oh and try to run at night or in the morning just like 10 minutes or anything you can do.

I think some of the other answers have good advice about exercise, smaller portions, water, etc.

Why do you have to do this without your parents noticing? Won't they support your efforts? You mention that your mom makes you feel weird and embarrassed. She should help you, no sabotage you. Good luck.

Even 20 minutes a day of some sort of exercise makes a big difference over time. Be it jogging, swimming, anything. I know it's hard to schedule those work out times in and even harder to stick to it, but if you really want to lose weight, you're going to work for it :)

Also eating more meals throughout the day that are smaller in size is both better for your health and can help you lose weight because it is less of a strain on your digestive system.

while your doing homework sit on the floor and do butterflies with your legs

instead of walking to the bus jog and possibly take a longer route

when your parents think you are in bed spend 5 minutes or so doing sit ups and lunges

good luck

Doctors suggest a work out of atleast 3 times a week. Since your schedule sounds very busy, I'd start with Friday, Saturday and Sunday (perfect days since there is no school). An hour of vigorous training of cardio will give great results.

First, make sure you are eating breakfast, and maybe not the school's depending what their selection is. I would recommend oatmeal (thats what i eat every morning) b/c its quick (1 cup oats, 1 cup milk, zap in microwave for 2 mins 30 secs) and add some sort of fruit to it ( i personally find bananas and peanut butter to be delicious). When you do eat meals and snacks, make them healthy ones, like fruits and vegis that you like and cut out as much sugar and sweets as you can. Eat lean meats and proteins, like fish and chicken breast. Another important thing is that you drink water throughout the day (i think the recommended amount is 8, 8oz glasses everyday). Now, when you DO lose the weight, dont start splurging and eating all those foods that you couldnt. Sure, have them, but eat them sparingly. There is no such thing as a diet, just lifestyle changes. You gotta eat healthy and keep eating healthy to look and stay healthy. Depending on what choices you have for classes, try taking a physical education class so you can get some exercise in since you're busy the rest of the day. Whew... Okay, thats all i have to say. Hope this helps :)


Rainy days.........
If you live within like 2 miles of school, walk to or from school. i live a mile and a half from school and i walk home every day, as much as i HATE walking and exercise in general (lol...) it's really relaxing, and when you do it every day, it seems quite short. it's better to walk to school, exercise in the morning burns more fat and stuff, and keeps your metabolism higher during the rest of the day, but i realize you probably don't want to wake up earlier to make up for that :).

Hopefully you live near enough to school for this! If not, when you go to friends' houses or the library or other places, walk there instead of having a parent drive you.

maybe when you come home from school do a half hour to 45 minutes of cardio everyday then do your homework. that way, you can get a break from school a little bit. and then eat dinner earlier if you can. between 5 and 6 if possible because if you eat later it will just sit in your stomach and then turn to fat. cut back on unhealthy snacks, take smaller portions, remember, you cant lose weight without exercise. you have to have a combination of cardio and and food cut backs

change your lifestyle for good by working out often and portion control your meals but keep it well balanced & also stay hydrated...stay active in dance,sports and martial arts...who needs supplements??

Get a healthy diet going (good breakfast very important as that helps get your metabolism to get better)
During breaks do whatever you can thats physical (physical play, football, running around etc. or whatever)
At lunch try and not eat stuff like fatty foods or whatever, be more concious about that stuff.
2:30-9:30 pm homework -> walk/jog/random excersize (do homework then do that other stuff. Or do some homework, then take a break and do a bit of excericize, then go back to homework, etc.)
and bits of excercize after you wake up and before you go to sleep is good too.

if you're still in high school you shouldn't be trying to lose 50lbs unless you are morbidly obese. And by morbidly obese I mean like 400lbs. You can try playing a sport. Eating healthier, packing your lunch instead of eating there, things like that are good ways to loose weight. There are more calories in one school lunch than you should have in a week. ew. also try taking up a sport. You can play out of school soccer, or tae kwon doe or something. Talk to your doctor, and no need to be embarrassed plenty of teenagers are struggling to loose weight.

for some reason, i think you seem to be making your schedule seem tighter than it really is. in that designated 3 and a half hours of "homework time" just take a 20 minute walk or so. doing this every day can actually make a big difference! and at lunch, when you choose what to eat, stay away from carbs and get a good balanced diet. +++do you find yourself taking a little handful of peanuts or something small constantly throughout the day? tests show that if you have lots of TINY snacks such as peanuts, licks of brownie batter or cookie dough, a piece of chocolate, etc, can add up to over 1,000 calories in your day without you even realizing you've been eating.

ur parents are going to notice.
dont get so stressed out abt it!
and dont be so embarrassed!
enjoy ur diet and excersizing...dont make it a secret chore

cant give u real advice tho...i kno very little abt this myself...

Well first of all... How much do you currently weigh? I mean... Not to sound nosy or anything; but 50 pounds is kind of a lot to lose, even if you DO want to do it safely.

I know it might be difficult, but getting a parent or doctor involved is probably the only way you're going to figure out how to lose the weight, and, more importantly, how much weight you should safely lose.

My advice, if you do want to lose weight and feel better about yourself is this:

-Excercise regularly. Get in as much physical activity as you can; about an hour a day is optimal. This doesn't mean running on a treadmill for an hour, though-- simple things, like walking to school or taking the stairs more often is a good way to squeeze in some excercise.

-Eat small portions, but eat frequently. That way, you're not setting yourself up to get hunger pangs and raid your fridge. Keep in mind that foods high in protein can help keep you fuller longer. Also, be sure to eat at least 1,200 calories a day-- possibly even more, if you're still a growing teen. Again, this is why I personally think you should talk to your doctor about this, as they could figure out your calorie needs better than anyone over the internet could.

Anyway, cheers--hope I helped :)

Why can't you just tell your parents you want to lose a little bit of weight? That way you'll be more determined and your family can get healthy too :) x

Start with walking a mile or two every day after homework and before dinner. Also try to eat snacks instead of full means. Examples being a quick breakfast before school (very important, but keep it minimal), a healthy snack after school before homework, then dinner. You could even make the portions smaller and spread them out to a maximum of 5 meals. Just start exercising now by walking, and slowly work your way up to jogging/walking. As long as you're active every day for at least 30 minutes and you watch what you eat, you'll lose weight. Pinky promise.

There is really only one way to lose weight: eat fewer calories and add more exercise. You can do a lot without your parents "noticing" it: you can add 15-30 minutes of activity every single day and I'll bet you won't even notice yourself.

When you go to the bus in the morning, RUN, don't walk. When you get there, jog in place until the bus comes.

While at school, take the long way to each class, take the stairs two at a time instead of one at a time, and instead of eating high-fat, high-calorie foods at lunch, pick the ones that are made from vegetables and whole grains.

Drink water instead of soda or milk. Don't snack between meals.

While you're sitting at your desk or on your bed doing homework, lift a couple of small weights randomly--don't have weights? Use a couple of 15-oz cans of something from the pantry. That's almost a pound each. The strength training you will gain will help your metabolism rev up to burn off what you eat faster. Instead of sittting still, MOVE. Get up and put on some music and dance for 10 minutes. swing your arms, move your legs. That's exercise. Take a break now and then, when you're doing your homework, to simply swan about the room--just careen aimlessly or prance around--I'm really serious! ANY added movement will soon add up to your 15 minutes -- and more! You'll soon be burning off what you eat, and will start losing weight, and feeling better.

Substitute the following:

Hamburger/cheeseburger: no mayonnaise and no bun.
Chips: breadsticks or soda crackers.
Cereal: no sugary ones. Shredded wheat or oatmeal instead. The less sugar you have first thing in the morning, the better. Even better than cereal--fat-free/sugar-free yogurt.

Soup instead of stew. The thinner the soup, the better. Chicken noodle is better than brocolli/cheese. Chili is better than cream of chicken.

No bread with your meals for two weeks, then eat only whole-grain or whole wheat bread.

No fatty foods--nothing deep fried. No french fries. No creamy salad dressings.

You can make one of these changes every week--you don't have to do them all at once. Eliminate 500 calories a day--and add 500 calories a day in activity and you'll lose TWO POUNDS every week! Simply by making very small changes, you can lose that 50 in about 6 months or less. That's safe, and permanent weight loss.

Don't fall for stuff like Acai or Colon cleansing. They don' twork and they don't help. Colon cleansing is merely an enema--and does not result in any permanent anything, AND can cause dehydration. Acai has not been proven as any sort of help at all. Only eating less and exercising more will do it.

Ask your mom if you can go shopping with her, and ask her to buy more healthy alternatives. READ LABELS--go for foods with less than 20% of their content in fat and try to limit your carbs. Foods that are rich in fiber will fill you up and you will eat less.

Don't deprive yourself--just eat BETTER. That way you won't be "dieting" and you'll still lose weight. If you have to have a treat, cut it in half--then in half again. Eat ONE part, not all 4. Don't buy tempting things to keep near you, and you won't have them to eat.

The trick is, you don't try it all at once. You only make tiny changes, and not all at the same time--and you'll find they work better.

To find out what calories are burned off by what activities and for how long, go here: http://www.nutristrategy.com/activitylist.htm

And to see how to eat, go here:http://www.menshealth.com/eatthis/index.php

Also, keep a food diary. Write down everything you eat. I mean EVERYthing. If you bite it, write it. You'll see fairly quickly where your bulk is coming from. Learning to do this regularly and also learning how big a "portion" really is, are extremely helpful in weight loss.

Taking an active role in managing your health and weight is the very best thing you can do for yourself. I wish you luck!!

Drink a lot of water. It will help. If you could spend one minute of every day just for a month, it will help you lose 7 pounds a month or more. Water is your best friend. Try not to eat junk, or soda. Only eat when your hungry don't eat out of boredom.

you coul go to sleep quicker and then wake up earlier and go jogging..... and always jog to the bus stop but don't be embarrassed to talk to your mom about it cause thats one reason she is there

I am 14 and have been working out for about 2 years. The way I do it is, I come home from school and directly go for a run, it clears your head, feels good, and gives you a break from school work. I generally run about 3-5 miles. You should try it!

oMg iM a UnDeRcOvEr cOp :)

You could start working out. Like jogging in place, crunches/sit-ups, push-ups, ect. at home. You didn't put anything down for 6:00pm-9:00pm so within those three hours you could probably manage 30-90 minutes a day of work-out. Your parents could just think you're listening to music or watching T.V or something.
