You don’t have to read a study or a report to know that there are a huge amount of overweight or obese people in the USA and the UK. You can blame this on the food being sold or a lack of understanding on the part of the individuals buying that said food, however the real bottom line is that you are the one who is putting that stuff into your mouth.
Most people do not think about it, but everyone has a choice as to whether to eat decent food or not. If you are radically overweight, then you chose to allow yourself to get into that state. No one else, just you!
Nevertheless, there is always a way out of this cycle and it is never too late. There are thousands ofprograms, so you should be able to find one that suits you. I made that sound pretty easy and it should be, but people still have trouble choosing one.
My advice is to read the weight loss advert aloud to yourself or a friend. Does it sound like they’re kidding you? Then they probably are! Dump it. The bottom line is that you can only lose weight by using up more energy than you consume. Having said that there are a couple of ways of achieving that.
The two basic methods are either counting calories or watching your carbohydrates intake, that is Weight Watchers or Atkins. Start by going to their web sites and reading about their philosophies. Pick the one that suits you and stick to it.
One note that I would like to stress here for teenagers however, is that at your time of life your body is going through a radical change. You are metamorphosing from a child to an adult – let the change finish, before you start worrying too much. You were a little bug, now you are that chrysalis and soon you will be a beautiful butterfly. Just wait and give your body time to sort itself out.
There really isn’t anything that you can do to stop what your body has to do. Spots mean that you have toxins in you and your body wants to get rid of them. Help your body by stopping the junk food intake. Keep your skin clean and make sure that everything that touches your skin is clean too. Hands, hair, pillow cases, etc.
Exercise! Now is the time to include an exercise routine into your way of life. Exercise raises your metabolic rate which helps you burn calories more quickly. If you can burn up those calories quickly, then you can allow yourself a few more treats.
The other point about exercise is that if you do not establish a discipline for exercise when you are young, you will find it much harder when you have your next bodily change in your forties or fifties, and most probably when you are much more overweight to boot.
The bottom line is not to worry too much about what you look like now, you are changing into a beautiful butterfly remember. Help your body out by eating healthily and take up a form of exercise or sport that you can enjoy and stick to it.
