What quantity of calories should a 16 year old boy eat to loose weight?

Specializes in Pediatrics
See nutritionist: The best way to lose weight is to change your eating habits to a healthier meal plan...... So you are not hungry. A 16 year old boy is still growing and so you do not want to reduce calories too much. A nutritionist can really help you see how to change the way you eat and not just eat fewer calories.
