Is it bad that a 11 year old, 5 ft and 6 in, be 195 lbs, if so how can lose weight? And goal is 100 lbs if not 120 the maximum.(a girl)

195 lbs is too big: For anybody 5' 6", being 195 lbs is much too big. The solution is to stop eating more food (calories) than is needed to live. That usually means eating small amounts at set meal times and set snack times, avoiding sugars and simple starches, and avoiding sugary drinks like sodas or juices. One can aim for dropping 1 pound a week, for 1 year... Getting to 150 lbs, and then deciding what to do next. ...Read more

About 120 pounds: About 120 pounds would be a good weight for you. Losing weight requires a combination of reducing intake of food and exercising, easier said than one. You may wish to join a support group like weight watchers. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

Do an hour a day of exercise on most days. Eat more healthy choices and avoid high fat, high sugar foods. Watch your portions and don't overeat. Slow steady changes will help you lose the weight and keep it at a "normal" range. ...Read more
