The best way for a 10 year old to lose weight is to make a couple of changes. Instead of reaching for the chips, go for an apple. Make a deal with yourself that for every 15 minutes of exercise you do, you get to spend an hour playing video games. Also, ask mom or dad to buy healthy snacks such and fruit, vegetables, and whole grain foods. If you're like me, it's hard to make changes. Start gradually and before you know it, it will become a habit.
I agree with hawiianlika. But I have to add don't cut yourself completely off of chips or chicolate bars or whatever your biggest problem food is. I've tried that and was good for about 3 weeks then I pigged out on junk food for two days and felt really sick afterwards as u cut down on the bad stuff promise yourself that if u eat healthy and avoid the junk for 6 days on the 7th day allow yourself one chocolate bar or one small nag of chips. Also try drinking more water, and if u drink alot of pop go to diet pop. Ask your parents to buy splenda for any baking or cooking that uses sugar. Oh yeah and don't forget to excercise. Good luck. With just these little changes I managed to loose over 100lbs in a year.
I went on weight watchers and that really worked for me. I don't eat the artificial sweeteners on that diet, but they do teach you to eat right and you can have real food and pizza and chips and things. I learned to eat smaller amounts of the junk foods and the weight stayed off because it was not a fad diet and I still got my junk foods which I love!, It is a good healthy diet I could actually stay on. You can have all the veggies you want and I love veggie plates and chef salads. I always have my little bit of junk food as a treat with my big veggie plate and lowfat dip.
well keep on the apples and pears at least have 3 pieces of fruit a day if you can't have 5 start with 3 then the next week try to have 4 a day then the next 5 then the next 6 a day the more you eat (fruit) the healthier you get if u like coke go to diet coke if you like cakes dont use full fat butter and sugar use splender and clover light
