Will I lose weight if I eat: two oranges, a fiber1 bar, and oatmeal with flax seeds in it and drink a lot of water every day?

Will I lose weight if I eat: two oranges, a fiber1 bar, and oatmeal with flax seeds in it and drink a lot of water every day?

Maybe, but: It will not be a healthy or sustainable weight loss. This proposed diet does not contain enough protein or other nutrients (including vegetables) to maintain your vital functions. It could ultimately throw your body into starvation mode, which would slow your metabolism and make it even harder to lose weight in the future.

12 year old 200lbs 166cm Can not lose weight Dosent eat candy drink some orange juice Plays soccer everyday for 1Hour?

12 year old 200lbs 166cm Can not lose weight Dosent eat candy drink some orange juice Plays soccer everyday for 1Hour?

Not about candy: At that size I would first have a regular checkup done as he may already have signs of pre-diabetes and high blood pressure. Once medical issues have been ruled out, you need to meet with a clinical dietitian and find out where his extra weight is coming from. People assume that it is sweets or deserts but it can be anything he consumes that he is not using to grow or burning off in activity.

If I cut sugar out my diet except for maybe a cup of orange juice a day and drink only water and do weightlifting and walking will I lose weight?

If I cut sugar out my diet except for maybe a cup of orange juice a day and drink only water and do weightlifting and walking will I lose weight?

Maybe: You have to control two things: calories ingested calories burned that's all. The 3rd factor is your genetically given physiology/metabolism, and how efficiently you burn/utilize calories, and where the body prefers to store fat. Honestly not too much to do about these factors despite all the gimmicks that shysters promote.

If I get diareah when I eat lots of appls and oranges, can I use it to loose weight? .

Nope, it won't work.: Fruits have sugars in them. Sugars are carbs. Carbs lock fatty acids into fat cells. Eating sugary things constantly will Prohibit your cells from releasing fat and carbs from being used for fuel, because you're using the sugar for energy. You will lose weight by depriving your system of excess carbohydrates. Choose foods with low carbs and high proteins. It takes practice and is difficult.

A balanced diet.: Probably the best way to lose weight is to eat a balanced diet with a controlled amount of food daily.
