Teens today are under enormous pressure. Be it their peers, parents or the society at large, people are being pushed in subtle and overt ways to adhere to various norms. Being of ideal weight is one such pressure. Insults, snide remarks and the disappointment glaring in the parents’ eyes are some constant reminders for overweight or obese people that something is not right with them.

Weight Loss Tips for Teens


Although weight loss is important but one must understand the need for undertaking any plan judiciously and after careful and thorough research. Quick fix weight loss programs are not only detrimental to their physical well-being but is also a strong statement supporting the mass hysteria that surrounds the myth of the ideal body today.


Teen Weight Loss

Eat right

Throw junk food out of your life. We know it is difficult not to grab a burger in case hunger pangs are distracting you but remember; a little restraint goes a long way. Chew carrots instead of munching on potato chips. Eat a plate full of fresh salad instead of a mayonnaise laden sandwich. Make your food interesting by adding a little spice and lemon.

 

Portion it well

One of the leading causes of weight gain in people is the fact that they do not look at the size of the portions that they are eating. Eat in small portions, at frequent intervals and chew your food. Our weight loss tip for you is to eat slowly without any distraction. The television, music system and even facebook should be avoided when eating. Give your brain the time to realise that food is being eaten.

Weight Loss Tips

Give up the drink

What we mean here is the fact that you tend to go for colas and other caffeinated drinks when you feel thirsty. Weight loss can be achieved if youdrink plenty of water. Water keeps the body hydrated, keeps thirst at bay and also flushes the damning toxins out of the body. Drink at least 8 glasses of water daily and the magnificent results for yourself. It is not for nothing that water is called the source of life people!

 

Sleep well

Let us not forget the night cap when talking about weight loss tips. Sleeping ensures that the body and mind relax. It help metabolism and releases one form stress. And remember that stress is one of the major contributing factors to weight gain. Therefore, sleeping well will directly affect and kill your habit of grabbing that pack of nachos whenever you feel the need to feel good about yourself!

Losing Weight

Be active

Whether you like running the park or swimming in local pool, ensure that you are getting enough exercise. Exercise stimulates the body and triggers it to dissolve the fat deposits. Daily exercise will also help you feel fresh and energetic and will also ensure a good night’s sleep. 


Weight loss tips can only work if you are motivated and not castigated for their weight issues. Therefore, if you have problems with your weight, do not get demoralises. Instead egg on so that you achieve appropriate weight loss. Set a role model for yourslef to learn from.
