The only way to get rid of fat deposits is to lose weight by reducing your calorie intake below the number of calories you burn.

eKatherine's got it right. Go do that. Smile With FatSecret, you've got the tools to do it, and the needed support should you want it. Smile

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. 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, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.

At your age, you do not need to go into too big a deficit in fact if you are active you can do it through exercise. Find out what your RDI is and make sure you are not going over .... Try to eat a good balance of protein, carb and fat (fat secret is a great tool).... the exercise you do will create your deficit.

I agree with Preggo, you do not want to restrict too much and you do not want to develop a bad relationship with food Smile If I knew then what I know now --- my advice is exercise. I am currently one pound less than when I graduated high school and I really think I am in much better shape b/c of weight training. I definitely have more definition - so I would suggest doing a little cardio and then doing weight training 3-4 x week (if you can get a trainer that would be best for your age, but if not, then get some weight lifting DVD's and some hand weights- high reps and low weights). I know some will tell you to increase your weights and do less reps, but that is more difficult when you rely on a home gym and if you don't have a spotter...

I know this is not about me, but I feel like I went through high school thinking I was fat, when in reality my weight was "normal" per BMI and all I really needed was to tone it up. SO, that is my suggestion, exercise to tone it up.

High carb- Low protein and HUNGRY all the time???
You usually need to eat (at least) every 3 hours on a High carb diet to stop hunger. I find, with high carb dieting grazing is the best system. While with low carb dieting, a set 3 meals a day works ...

Is there a way to reverse sync so my correct food entries from here are on my phone since it won't let me delete an entry in the wrong place?
