    For all the overweight teens out there

    I have lost 20+ pounds just by playing a lot of sports outside, I wasn't on any special diet, just eating like a normal person... when your outside playing sports for a long time, there's no time for stuffing your face with junk food... so try it, get outside, and start playing sports that involve high amounts of physical activity... you will notice as you lose weight you will feel faster and jump higher. So get out there!

    what I was trying to say is teens don't need to go on these crazy diets that they see here, and count calories if they just want to lose weight. I tried doing that, and that just made me want to quit. All you got to do is play sports and stay outside for a long time were there is no access to junk food.

    So kenwood/kinkery, if you just want to lose your man boobs... do what I say, son.

    wouldnt call it "crazy diets", majority, if not all of the eating plans and recipes on here and just healthy eating, the way you should eat.

    although i get your point, getting off you ass and playin some sports is healthier then sittin infront of a computer or tv all day

    There's nothing crazy about these diets. A "normal" diet seems to consist of chinese food, pizza, and random sandwiches these days. I'll take my healthy "crazy" diet over that any day.

    yeah, i dont really see a strict diet as "crazy" its more of a life style to me IMO. i clean bulkd to 200lbs and now i'm at 170. i didnt come on here and say it was easy i didnt do that much cardio. most of it was just dieting and being consistant.

    i Totally agree. i was 240 lbs in december (my peak weight) and now im 210. and u know what i did? sports. I eat healthy and clean, 6 smaller meals a day but i by no m,eans count calories. if I want to eat out i do, however i comprimise and dont go all out like i used to. if i want to get hammed on a friday night, i will. but on saturday morning, im gonna call up my buddies, goto the park with a football and a basketball and play HARD for hours. im talking like, 3-5 hours some days. and the reason i keep losing weight is because its not a chore to do this cardio, its fun and i really enjoy it. There is nothing better than looking forward to cardio. This is my THIRD time trying to lose weight so far(it will be the last ) and the NUMBEr on thing that changed was my cardio. I used to HATE running on a treadmill or elipcitacl or some other boring shit. therefore, i didnt do it. but basketball is mad fun lol. or football, or frisbee, hockey, tennis... the possibulities are endless.I just go into activites looking for a good workout, wich normall translates to success when ur playing (i run back on defense EVERY single play, good cardio+good basketball) Also, another huge thing is to be SOMEWHAT loose with ur diet. im not saying go nuts, but if u want to eat something sweet, go for it (in moderation of course.) But know that u treated urself that day, and eat less later or exercise a bit more. Those 2 things alone are what made the difference in changing my life.

    So yes, i fully agree that teenagers dont need to do anything fancy. eat clean and healthy diets and just be active playing sports and the weight will fly off while ur having fun. And when u go home, throw in some pushups, situps, or whatever body weight exercise u can find. Im actually getting really good strength training results just from doing different variations of pushups and situps. and it costs a whopping 0 dollars. thats an amazing price for all the confidence and pride your going to take in yourself.

    Moral of the story: My man boobs are gone from playing sports!

    You keep saying "eat clean" and that you eat "6 meals a day," then you say youre not on a diet?

    Diet is anything you eat. Diet doesnt just = losing weight. In any case...6 clean meals a day is...a diet.

    First of all Akira, you obviously completely missed the entire point of what i wrote. Second of all, where the hell do i say im not on a diet? are you refering to me saying "but i by no m,eans count calories" or maybe "teenagers dont need to do anything fancy. eat clean and healthy diets". Oh thats right, i dont say that once. Next time try reading it mmk?

    Stop fighting.

    Anyway, everyone here has good points and there's nothing wrong with tossing out some advice like this. I do agree that the big problem with overweight teens is a lack of activity, but if you've watched or read any documentaries that deal with the eating habits of youth in public schools from elementary on into high school you'll see the extrordinary problems there. Physical Fitness is not emphasized in school as much as it used to be and the education level of students on fitness is VERY sub par to what it should be. At the same time though the food schools provide and the food parents are allowing their children to eat most of the time is just horrible.

    I recommend you watch "Supersize Me" not only does it show the extrodinary negative effects of eating fast food but it goes into good detail on the nutritional problems present in schools.

    i think people got the wrong idea of what a diet is anymore. to me its eating 5/6 healthy meals a day, i dont count calories. i just dont like putting shite into my body.

    now days a diet seems to be eating only carbs, or only green food or only 2 milkshakes a day or 1 bar every 2 hours or some other stupid crap........
