    I have lost a lot of weight in the past three weeks with a very healthy approach. If you eat every 3 hours you keep your metabolism going and won;t be hungry and binge later. I am trying to eat natural foods. I have brown rice(1/2 cup), egg whites and a fruit for breakfast. Then about 2oz (the size of a tea bag) of protein (chicken breast or any other lean meat) and greens for a snack. Lunch= lean protein,. 1/2 cup brown rice and veggies. Another snack like the one in the morning and dinner similar to lunch. Eat at least 3 hours before going to bed. The longer, the better. And try to workout at least 3 times a week. I'm pretty sure you will lose those few pounds.

    The reason for this approach is that every time that you eat a meal your body burns calories and if you count even though it sounds like a lot of food it is not because of the sizes of the portions. Try it for two weeks and you will be amazed. Also avoid salt, it has a lot of sodium and this makes you retain water and interferes with fat burning. Don;t starve yourself, that will only slow your metabolism and decrease muscle so that when you start eating normally again you will be likely to gain more weight.

    Good luck!!!

    When I was in the police academy I lost 8 to10 pounds within a 13 week time frame. If I did not gain body muscle I probably by would have lost 20 pounds. remember that body muscle weighs more than fat. It seems like you work out a lot. You will gain a lot of body muscle. For the eating situation just try to stay busy. where ever you live at if You are legaly allowed to work part time at 15 years old get your parents permission and fill out some applications so you can stay busy. When I go to work I use that as my workout and you can sometimes block out some discomfort from time to time when you are at work. you will not eat much because you have scheduled breaks.

    You know the drill. Eating healthy and toning ur muscles help, but if u wanna lose weight, u have to keep your metabolism up. Girls are alil more unlucky than guys when it comes to this. When girls hit puberty, everything in ur body gets stored as fat because mother nature expects u to have a baby one day and is preparing. Guys on the other hand, still have their high metabolisms.

    If you wanna keep ur metabolism high, do aerobic excercises (jogging, swimming, etc). Eat low fat and low sugar foods. Make sure u stay hydrated though. Good luck, I hope this helps.

    honestly, don't eat dinner during the week. Weekends....knock yourself out. But eat breakfast and a good size lunch with the last chunk of food going in your mouth at 3:30 or 4. Then don't eat dinner. I swear, it works. Trust me. Now, if your response is, "oh, I could never do that" then go ahead and continue to jiggle away. Good luck.

    Change your eating habits. Stop drinking sodas, even if its diet. Drink plenty of water, eat all your heavy carbs before 12 noon, working out @ least 3 times a week. But if you don't want to workout just change your eating habit.

    also, stay away from sodas, white breads, potatoes, and fast food.

    Salads (spend some time preparing your ingredients in separate containers all chopped and ready to go, then make your salads whenever you want. Throw stuff in a container, shake it up, and it's mixed).

    Trail mix and dried fruit.

    Yogurt snack packs
