Teenage Weight Loss Tips
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

A discussion of teenage weight loss tips can be a difficult subject because often teenagers, particularly teenage girls are trying to lose weight, not because they have a few kilograms to lose, but because they are pursuing the perfect, flawless body. This pursuit is really impossible, especially with the media, fashion industry and the movie business constantly promoting the idea that thinner is always better. Unfortunately many teenagers accept these lies and ruin their physical and mental health because they believe that they will be a better person and more lovable if they are thinner. Tragically, some have risked death in this fruitless pursuit.

In my list of teenage weight loss tips, I think its really important for teenagers to understand that more often than not, they have a distorted view of their body shape and whether or not they need to lose some weight or not. The best advice is to have a frank discussion about your weight concerns with someone you really trust, not necessarily your latest best friend but someone that has proven to you through your relationship that they care about you enormously. Ask them what they think and let them guide you. Chances are you don't need to lose weight, you just need to gain greater acceptance of who you are.

One of the important teenage weight loss tips is that it is best to aim for a slow and steady weight loss, eating a variety of good nutritious food is the best way. Fad diet programs that promise massive weight loss in a short period of time are just scams because the faster a person loses weight, the more likely they are to put it all on back again and then some extra. Researches have proven this through several studies. Weight loss needs to be slow because lifestyle habits need to change and change takes time. Just be patient and persistent.

Like everyone else, teenage weight loss is greatly aided by exercise and this is my next of my teenage weight loss tips. If the teenage person leads a very sedentary lifestyle then clearly they need to take up activities that involve movement. Walking is a terrific exercise, especially for someone who has not exercised for a long time. If walking seems boring then experiment until you find something that is fun.

Probably the greatest of the teenage weight loss tips, is for the teenager in question to focus on improving their nutrition and overall health rather than focusing on weight loss. If the focus is to get healthier, then the weight loss will happen and it will happen in a very safe way and this is so important.

I hope my teenage weight loss tips prove to be useful.
