A lot of "how to" depends on your age. Usually for any age, weight loss happens when you take in fewer calories than you burn. in other words, eat less, exercise more. Eat foods higher in fiber such as fruits and vegetables which will keep you feeling full longer, and stop soda and other less nutritious foods. Even for adolescents increasing the exercise factor makes a difference in weight outcome. Walking more, less riding and climbing stairs etc...will help you lose weight. Good luck with it but check with your doctor to be sure this is a necessary move.

Simple gradual changes in one' s lifestyle affect the weight and how we feel overall over time.
Excessive weight comes from the imbalance between the energy that we put into our bodies by consuming too much or the wrong kind of foods and the amount of energy that we use (exercise).
Here are some simple steps to take to improve your lifestyle and thus your weight:
1. Eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner
2. Snack between meals
3. Every time you eat, have a fruit or vegetable
4. Don't drink pop (maybe once a month for a special occasion!)
5. Cut down on juice (it's full of empty calories)
6. Reduce fast food intake to once a month for a special occasion
7. Drink plenty of water
8. Exercise daily for at least one hour (walk, swim, ride a bike, jump the rope, etc.)
