7 Unusual Weight Loss Tips For Teens is
Revealed in This Article!
Teens are the ones who are
affected the most by the load of
misinformation that is out there
about weight loss. I remember
being on this boat back when I
was a teen. I was overweight and
I was willing to do anything in
order to lose the weight. As a result, I made many mistakes
and fell victim to all of the misinformation.
Because I want to prevent other teens from going through
my trials and tribulations, here are my top weight loss tips for
Teen Weight Loss Tip #1: Do Not Starve!
That is correct. When you deprive your body from valuable
macronutrients needed for survival, and your caloric intake is
too low, this has a reverse effect on the body which makes
things 10 times worse.
What happens when you begin to restrict your food intake
and not consume many calories, your body’s metabolism will
begin to slow down as a result in order to conserve calories.
When this process takes place, your weight loss will begin to
slow down immensely. In addition, your energy levels will
plummet as you have deprived yourself of the
macronutrients needed for survival.
Repeated attempts to try and lose weight in this unfavorable
manner can cause your body’s metabolic rate not to function
as it should, and thus, it will become easier for you to gain
weight and harder to lose it over time.
Also, keep in mind that starvation puts the body under
incredible amounts of stress and we all know what happens
when that is the case; a HUGE CORTISOL INCREASE!
The solution is to have the correct diet with the appropriate
Teen Weight Loss Tip #2: Starvation Prevents You From
Getting Lean and Toned
Yes, eating less will cause your body to become catabolic. A
catabolic state is a state where your body will actually store
fat and eat away your lean muscle tissue. The reason for this
is because your fat tissue requires fewer calories than your
lean muscle tissue. As a result, when your muscle tissue is
restricted from the calories needed to function properly, your
body eats away muscle tissue and stores more fat.
Again, a diet with the right macronutrient ratios (carbs,
proteins and fats) that feeds your body frequently is the
secret to achieving a faster metabolism.
Teen Weight Loss Tip #3: Do Not Blame Yourself for
Realize that feeling guilty is NOT the way to approach this
situation. It is important to not blame yourself, parents,
friends or family for being overweight. Switching the blame to
someone else or feeling guilty will only make things worse.
Focus instead on the solution which is to embark on the right
nutrition and exercise program.
Teen Weight Loss Tip #4: Realistic Goals Make For
It is important to realize that there is not a single diet out
there that will allow you to lose 20 pounds a week. First and
foremost, losing weight at such a rapid pace is unhealthy
and not possible unless you are severely overweight.
Furthermore, such fast weight loss is usually not a
permanent one and is regained quickly.
Try to make goals such as: “I will lose 2 pounds each week
until I get down to X amount of pounds.” By having short
term goals like this, slowly but surely you are constantly
moving forward to the final destination.
Teen Weight Loss Tip #5: Add A Little Exercise Into
For those who are looking to lose weight, exercising is key to
maximizing the effects of the diet. Exercising regularly will
not only help you burn off more calories but it will also give
you more energy and tone up your body.
If you feel that you are too overweight to do anything else,
then just go for a light walk outside. Make exercising fun by
getting a friend to be your workout partner or even try
walking your dog. All of these things are a great way to make
exercising fun and effective.
Teen Weight Loss Tip #6: Look For Other Ways To
Measure Your Success Besides Weight Loss
A common mistake I find people making is they do not
reward themselves for success if they do not achieve the
weight loss goals they wanted in X amount of time. If people
do not lose the 2 pounds they desired in a week, they get
frustrated and allow the negativity to triumph over the
It is important to understand that sometimes, especially
when you include weight training exercise, weight stays the
same but measurements change; which means that you are
losing fat weight and gaining muscle weight which will help
to tone you and increase your metabolism permanently.
So if you have lost an inch on your waist and your
bodyweight has remained the same, that tells me that you
have lost body fat weight and gained muscle weight at the
same time. This is the sort of scenario that we are looking for
since muscle gives shape to your body and also, every
pound of muscle added is a pound that increases your
metabolic rate and makes fat loss that much easier!
Teen Weight Loss Tip #7: Focus On The Positive, NOT
Some people get really discouraged if the scale weight is not
moving as fast as they’d like. Realize that as long as you are
making progress and moving forward in the right direction,
you are taking the necessary steps to succeed with your
weight loss goals. I guarantee you that as long as you follow
a proven program, like the one laid out in the Fat Extinction
Program, with consistency and perseverance you will
accomplish any weight loss goal regardless of how big they
