Try to drink 8 full glasses of water a day (avoid ice tea and sodas), cut carbs (eat granola and whole grains) and high sodium foods. Of course no sweets, but eat healthy protein (almonds, chicken, turkey, pork chops). But make sure you try to sweat off a lot with cardio exercise, or you can try to replace fat with muscle, although you might find it harder to reach your weight goal.

I have had 257 lbs at the age of fourteen and now Im at 176 lbs & Im 19. I spent alot of time trying to reach this, I did various sports like alot.. worked out, played tennis, running, swimming etc. Went through crazy diets, fasting and even eating disorder/bulimy.
My point in telling you this is, that I want you not to even try thinking about this obstacle as one of a huge problem. It will destroy you.
Second, running wont get you anywhere. Well actually it will but it takes alot of time and discipline and doing other sports too with specific diet being the obvious. The key in getting slim is not in physical activity, you can lose weight really fast with smart diet. I dont have alot of time right now to explain this properly, but feel free to send me a PM if you like to, I assure you I know almost everything about food
Also search out "Dukan diet", you can find a solution just there
You will need to lift bro, and watch swifty he is the best warrior
Make your own lunch for school, then you don't have to eat their low-grade vegetables.
count your calories mang
I weighed roughly 200 pounds (6 ft tall) before I started preparing for the Air Force. Best suggestion that's been working is keeping track of what you eat. By staying at 2237 calories a day, in the first week you'll notice how many pounds you can drop. 2nd week walk a half miles each day, still staying at 2237. 3rd week eat 2.3k calories while running 1 mile a day. just by doing this I cut off 5-9 pounds a week by increasing the distance substancially and calories minutly. 4th week add upper body workouts, or muscular workouts (push ups, sit ups, crunches and pull ups) to keep your body from getting used to only cardio. do that for 2 weeks, than go back to original.
Not only is it expensive only eating meat and only protein / fats, carbs is good for you.
Are you a beginner to building muscle? In that case you can build abit ( not much ) of muscle even at a caloric deficit, but you will have to lose the weight and then go into a calori surplus if you want to build more muscle.

Recommended to lose is a pound to 2 pounds max, a week.
Edit two: Dont go on any diets.
Just eat healthy and on a 500 calorie deficit with a brisk walk every day until you can start jogging.
Losing weight is a lifestyle change, you cant go back to old eating habits once you've lost the weight.
You wont miss the junk food etc after losing the weight, because nothing feels better than being healthy.

take dnp for 2 weeks and you will lose 20 lbs.
Couple of quick and really simple tips I give anyone wanting to lose some weight:
1. No extra salt on anything - it literally traps water in your body. Stay away from high sodium foods as well
2. No more soda at all. Don't care if it's diet, stick to water throughout the day and milk with meals (I like 2%)
3. Be conscientious of the carbs you're taking in. Those are the hardest for your body to break down
4. Stay active. Running is great but throw in some push ups, sit ups, cruches, etc. That will get your metabolism crankin 4 days a week min.
5. Eat small meals. No more eating to get stuffed (I do it too, it's hard not to when the food is awesome). Keep fruit in the house for a snack when you get the munchies.
Those are 5 really easy simplified diet steps that if you follow you WILL lose weight. I hate calorie counting and this always works for me.
We all need cheat days. Allow yourself something that you wouldn't normally eat as a reward, but don't start double-dipping those rewards. "Yesterday I had a pizza as a reward so today I get ice cream" A reward is a reward and shouldn't be one a day. One a week is good and once you get to your goal weight then you have the flexibility to reward yourself more often and reel it in if you start tipping in the wrong direction.
If you have a smart phone look for a calorie counting app just to help you get started and give you an idea of how many calories are in what you eat on a daily basis. Cardio can be boring when you first get started, but wear an Ipod or Mp3 player to keep you distracted. Push-ups and pull-ups are a great way to get started on building muscle if you don't have access to a gym or weights. Pretty obvious that what you eat is quite important.
If you're not sweating, you're not doing it right!
http://caloriecount.about.com/ To look up how much calories there is in an apple, bread etc.
Daily Calorie Intake: 2,498 (MAX) (If you work out 2-3 times a week for 30 minutes per time)
Daily Calorie Intake: 2100 (MAX) (if you work out less than 30 minutes a week)
Expected Weight Loss Per Week: 0.6 kg.
Go for runs, jump rope and do the stuff you like when training.
When losing weight try to keep pulse under 130 for cardio (more weight loss) and go for 30 minutes plus.
The most important thing when losing weight is the the diet. Try to aim for 5-6 meals a day of 300-400 calories each.
If you like chicken and turkey, its pretty much the best meat to eat (give the skin to the dog or whatever).
If you like fish, awesome for you, its the best meat for losing weight really, tuna(no oil) etc.

Everything here will work. However for the amount of effort you put in, to me the results do not justify it for me. Take these few things in to consideration:
You have to jog one mile to burn the calories from a medium-sized banana.
It takes almost four miles to burn off the calories from one medium order of fast food French fries, which have about 370 calories.
To lose one pound of fat, you'll need to burn about 3,500 calories, or jog about 35 miles.
35 miles for 1 pound, yeah i'll pass. People are brainwashed into thinking you can look like a fitness model by just running some and controling diet. While possible, this will take a very long (10+ years) time to achieve. There are many other alternative ways that are widely used, yet unknown to the public. The public is fear mongered into believing that they are dangerous/deadly. However; just like anything else, abusing something will and can harm you. Use them responsibly and reap the benefits.
I am currently burning ~6000 calories a day while doing absolutely nothing. I can eat whatever ( and I mean whatever ) I want with 0 consequences. So far I have lost 18 lbs in 2 weeks and still going strong. Oh, and that weight is pure fat. No muscle weight, no water weight, just pure fat. The choice is yours, but if your interested in anything pm me I will be glad to answer any questions.
