Weight loss Tips for Teenage Boys:


Eat healthy

 

There is no magic mantra to losing excess weight boys! You have start eating healthy. It means cutting out the fries, burgers and pizzas. Sure, you can indulge once in a while but reaching for the packet of potato every time you crave for a snack is absolutely wrong. Eat more fruits, vegetables and other items that stack on the good things such as iron, protein and carbs!

 

Make the food count

 

Eat slowly. Chew your food and take time. This allows the brain to register that you are eating which in turn will help you stop once you are full. Eat in small portions and between intervals. Do not eat one big meal and think that it will suffice for the entire day. This is the way in which the body begins to horde fat. Again, if you have a midnight craving, wait for the moment to pass. More often than not we lunge at food the moment we feel a hunger pang. But if you wait for a few minutes or just rink water, you will realise that probably it was in fact a false alarm!
