What Is The Best Way To Loose Weight?
Hi, I am a British 13 year old girl. I am 5ft 6in and I am about 11st 7lbs. I think according to the NHS BMI calculator I am obese :/
Anyway I was just wondering how can I loose a lot of weight (1 or 2 stone)? In a healthy and safe way. Also how can I stick to any suggestions you might have? You know, like I am usually on an eating and exercising plan for a couple of weeks and then I stop from lack of commitment any suggestions you would have would really help.
Please, you will be helping one obese child becoming a gorgeous flower.
First off, Im american so I honestly have no idea if you are overweight or not! We use pounds, so forgive me silly american thinking. But as for how to lose weight, I can help you there. Simply reduce your calorie intake. Spend three days eating like you normally do, keeping track of everything you eat. At the end of the day, add up how many calories you ate. If its over 1,400 you are eating too much. If you have an inactive lifestyle, your calories should be below 1,200.
Now, here is the trick to making this work.
1. You have to eat a certain amount of calories per day, I recommend 1,200.
2. You have to balance your meals…
Breakfast – 300 calories
Snack – 100 calories
Lunch – 300 calories
Dinner – 500 calories
Never eat more than 700 calories in one setting.
3. To keep yourself stimulated to doing this, keep in mind you are only counting calories. Not carbs or protien or sugar. Meaning…you can eat whatever you want! Just proportion it correctly.
4. Every two weeks or so, have a splurge weekend where you do not count calories. This confuses your matabolism and makes it think you are going to be eating more again, so it starts moving faster, but once you start eating less it is still pumpin. This is a great way to indulge in those cravings you have been having while avoiding those nasty platues.
5. Exercise as much as you can. Moving furniture is a great way to do that!
Good luck hun, and remember, just be happy with yourself cause you already are a flower. Maybe a sunflower? Or a daisy lol
Has your pediatrician ever told you your child was “overweight”?
Our pediatrician plugged my 3.5 year old’s height and weight into the BMI calculator and told me he was overweight. I am not one of those mothers who is in denial…he is a tall boy and pretty muscular for his age, you can see his ribs…no one would even think of him as still having “baby fat” or being chubby in any way. I am thinking of finding a new doctor…I don’t feel I could trust the judgment of a man who is looking at my son in his underwear and telling me that he is overweight because of the numbers he has plugged in. Time for a new doctor or am I over-reacting?
BMI is not always accurate in people with dense muscle mass…most of the men in my family have the same issue. I am not angry, it just makes me question the doctor’s judgement.
I’d be the first to notice if my children were chubby…I’m weird about people letting their kids become overweight.
When I say muscular, I mean muscular, you can see the definition in his calves and thighs.
Ur kids fat…hes 3 there is NO POSSIBLE WAY he has definition in his thighs/calves this is probably just fat… He cant be muscular…. Unless you or your husband is muscular HE CANT BE MUSCULAR if the Dr. Didnt look at ur kid he might not be fat but THERES NO WAY he has muscles in his calves…. Get out of denial and get back in the kitchen
Am I “thick” or fat 5’4″ 175 pounds?
I am 26 years old I’ve had 3 kids last one was 4 years ago anyway I’m 5’4′ inches and I weight about 175 because I put on another 5 pounds over winter.My husband says I’m “thick” I honestly dont believe him I know I’m fat even the BMI calculators say I’m obese…most of my weight is unfortunately carried around the middles due to carrying a child and did not workout.I’m honestly here looking for your personal opinion on would you consider someone of my height and weight Thick or fat I need the truth so I know that i;m not crazy.But i am taller then i am wide.i;m actually not wide at all I wear between a 9-11 juniors but i can wear a 13 but it tends to sag and i’m constantly pulling them up.
i’m not what someone would say (round as they are tall) i know 5;4″ is still short.i used to be a member at a gym but can no longer afford it .I had lost 30 pounds of baby weight but still around 35 to 40 pounds away from where i started b4 kids(which was healthy)I honestly dont eat much and harly sny junk food but I do drink wine and I cannot loose weight it is so hard and depressing.Anyway I just really am wanting the truth because I kn ow my husband is trying to spare my feelings and yes I am very unhappy but dont know how to change this1
BMI calculators aren’t accurate. They don’t take frame size (bone size) into consideration, which is important too. If you’ve got medium sized bones, big bones, or even small bones, then you’re overweight, not obese. You would have to be 30 % (about 52 pounds) over your ideal weight to be considered obese.
If you do have large bones, then that may be why you look “thick”, not “fat”. I have a large frame myself, and I look like I weigh less than I actually do. I’ve been called “thick”, too.
Here’s an ideal weight calculator (that’s more accurate than BMI calculators):
am i fat / overweight / obese?!?!?
i am 12 years old,
5 foot 2 nearly 5 foot 3
i weigh 9 stone (126 pounds)
if i check my bmi it says i am a healthy weight but when i go on these websites with a child/teen calculator and put in my age my height and my weight it says i am overweight . i am going to try and lose weight but i don’t know how much to lose until i am a healthy weight. please help!!! thanks
A healthy weight for someone that is 5’2” is 120-139 pounds.
When you reach 5’3” it is 120-149 pounds. So sounds like your at a healthy weight to me! I wouldn’t worry about it to much anyways, generally you start to grow a lot at that age and anything that looks like to much will start to spread out anyway. Your fine, nothing to worry about!
body mass index equation/formula?
ok im doing my senior project on obesity awareness and i wanted to teach the children to find out their BMI‘s. but when i go on sights to find out i try to do it with my calculator to see if i get the same but i dont!!
what is the equation??i know you put you height in inches and you need your actual weight but i dont know the formula to get the actual BMI?!?!
please and thank you
BMI is your weight in kilograms divided by your height in metres squared [Formula: weight (kg) / [height (m)]2].
In imperial measurements you calculate BMI by dividing weight in pounds (lbs) by height in inches (in) squared and multiplying by a conversion factor of 703 [Formula: weight (lb) / [height (in)]2 x 703].
