I am a high school junior and my BMI is 25.7 I had recently read in a book that if your BMI is 25 or above, you’re overweight [40 and above, obese] any suggestions on what kinds of exercises and foods I should do and eat?
This question was not answered by a nutritionist, however another user commented.
Well, it really depends on how much of your weight is muscle and how much is fat. You should walk or jog for at least 30 minutes every day at a brisk pace. Cut out ALL soda, chips, junk food, cookies, ice cream, pizza, burgers, fries, etc. Eat salads for lunch to get a lot of veggies. Eat veggies, fruits, nuts, lean meats and whole grains. If you do the above, you should lose around 10 to 12 pounds every month. You should visit http://projekttransform.com to create your own free, personal blog to track your weight loss progress. You can add pictures, tips, ideas, and just about anything you can imagine. The idea of the website is to provide a place where people can view other people’s blogs to get motivation to gain or lose weight, transform their body and transform their life.
