Anyone know how to pick a good plan and stick to it? Also, I need to lose a lot of weight before tryouts. (almost 30 pounds) I need to make the team that's the only way I can get a scholarship. Any advice on how to do it??? Everyone's help/ advice is greatly appreciated.

If you ask me, there is only one way - the simple, logic and a little difficult way: You need to eat less calories than you burn. Use Fatsecret to calculate what you should consume, use Fatsecret to count calories, use Fatsecret to register your exercise, use Fatsecret to weigh in Daily or Weekly, and just go with it. Losing weight takes time if you want the weight loss to stick. Be determined and just go do it. Once you're in the habit it gets a LOT easier.
Best of luck! Smile

From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, and living healthy. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier!

What team are you going for, that's a huge factor when choosing a diet.

I play volleyball, basketball, softball, and gymnastics. I mainly need to lose weight to make the gymnastics team, but I feel like it would also help my performance in the other three sports.

I think that everyone is different and a plan that one person can stick with and follow another may not be successful with it. Hoping that you are giving yourself a reasonable amount of time to lose this weight, and with that being said I can only tell you what has worked for me.

I do Atkins...get the book and read it...keep it with you it will motivate you. Drink the recommeneded amount of water daily. I cut my carbs down to 20 a day and most of those need to come from vegetables. You need to exercise at least 30 minutes a day. If you cut your carbs (that is cutting out rice, bread, most desserts, milk, sodas-unless diet, etc) then that is what works for me. Everyone is different though and there are people that have said they were not successful. It works for me. My weight loss has slowed recently but that is because a lot of junk has happened in the past three weeks and I have not been as strict on the carbs nor getting to the gym. However, I have lost 30+ pounds pretty quickly doing this and not feeling like I am cheating myself.

Good luck!

If you eat sensibly (small portions of lean meats, lots of raw and grilled veggies, limit your fats) and practice for your tryouts you should be able to lose the weight. Remember that you can not cut your calories too much or you will put your body into starvation mode and it will just hold on to the weight. You want to lose the weight in a healthy manner. You may want to consult your family doctor.
