Eat healthily: and exercise. You need to balance the foods you are eating with the amount of exercise you do. You can do weight training, best done under supervision of a trainer. If you eat a balanced diet, including protein, carbs and fat, and watch your portions, you should be able to meet your goals. You can also talk to your pediatrician or a nutritionist to help you with the best foods to eat.
