  • My mom took that alli stuff and dropped 25 lbs in like 2 months. Your pretty much forced to eat healthy due to the possibly embarassing side effects

  • It would depend on her age. Sometimes just cutting out fast foods, snacking on fruits and veggies and cutting out the soda will do wonders. She could do things like walking and toning exercises right at home. Rent some work out dvds or check out some at the library, and she can get a lot of demonstrations on YouTube.

  • Walk, or do other exercise, for at least 20 minutes a day, at least 3 times a week.
    Make sure that you are drinking enough water, at least 8 8oz glasses a day.
    Eat an apple or big pile of veggies before meals.
    Eat 7-8 servings of fruits and vegetables a day, in at least 3 different colors.
    Eat 6-7 servings of whole grains a day.
    Replace meat and dairy with legumes like bean, lentils and tofu (all loaded with calcium and iron). Be sure to eat a vitamin C source with an iron source (like kale or beans) to increase the absorption of the iron.

  • Many people don't know about this new online fitness studio. Give her full routines, new ones daily that keep her motivated. I've tried dvd's but they get boring and put away in the corner.

  • Theres a group here on Cafemom called " Daily Nutritional Tips" you should check out. Not only are there tips, there are forums with a weight loss challenge, exercise plans/programs, & diet plans/programs.

    Good Luck!
