Eat whole foods: Congrats! you're bound to develop serious health issues if you don't improve your diet. Totally stop pop- you might try kombucha as a healthy alternative. Snack on nuts. Have a salad every day. Emphasize veggies, beans, fruits and whole grains. Can also have chicken, eggs, cheese- preferably organic. Satisfy sweet cravings with fruit and dark chocolate.

What its the best way for a 21 year old female to loose a drastic amount off weight? At lest 80 pounds, in the fastest amount of time.

Avoid drastic measur: You don't need drastic measure, as they won't help. You need to learn how to eat and exercise properly for the rest of your life, otherwise you're shorten it unnecessarily. You have to burn off 3500 calories you don't take in just to lose one pound. 80x3500= 280, 000 calories. That's the equivalent of walking across the United States 93 times. Good luck! ...Read more

I am 21 year old boy..my height is 5'5"...i want increase ny height upto 5'7..how i will achieve .plzz give regular diet plan?

Impossible: I'm sorry to tell you that this is impossible. Bone growth occurs at a part of the bone called the growth plate (near the ends of the bones). The growth plates "close" (basically disappear) in men between the ages of 18-21. After that there is no way to grow taller.
Height is mostly genetic but there are measures that might have increased growth a bit if tried when younger but you're fully grown. ...Read more

There are usually other relatives with the same trait, so mom and dad should know of some.
