How should you lose weight as a child?

I am a 12-year-old girl. I actually do not eat very much, but I always come across something. I actually want to lose weight, but some people say it is not good for children. What should I do?

It is indeed not wise to go as a youngster. You need a lot of nutrients to grow. Your body builds a good basis for your bones and muscles and craves proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins and minerals during this period. And that is also important for later. Have you ever seen how a house is built? First the foundation is laid, a solid foundation and only then the house is built on top of it. In your puberty, exactly such a foundation is laid for your adult body. Lose Weight-2 Healthy Lunchbox Lunch Take to School Work

Why are you coming?

You get energy inside by eating and drinking. Your body uses this energy again to move, for example, to digest your food to make your heart beat and to grow. So energy enters your body, and energy goes out. If you consume more energy than your body uses, energy remains 'over'. This excess of energy stores your body as fat. That's how you arrive. If you take in more energy for a long time than you need, you can become overweight. If you are still growing, it is quite normal that you become heavier. In puberty you will not only become longer, but also the shape of your body will change. Your breasts grow and your hips become wider.

Just keep eating healthy if you want to pay attention to your weight. Eat fruit and vegetables instead of cookies or chocolate, drink water instead of soda or juice, move at least one hour a day and let the television and computer out more often.

How many calories do you need?

As a girl of 12 you need about 2,100 calories per day. If you move more than an hour a day, you need 2,300 calories. Calories is a measure of energy. The packaging of food and drink shows how many calories there are in a product. If you eat healthy according to the Schijf van Vijf, you still have around 200 calories a day for extras such as snacks, soft drinks, cookies, sweets and pastries. And that's what you're up to! For example, a stroopwafel already has 142 calories, a long drink glass of cola 105 calories and an ice cream with chocolate layer 250 calories. Bread Replacement : 5 X Lunch / Breakfast Idea Without Sandwiches
