Teenagers, especially girls, are usually a little too concerned about their weight. Obesity is a growing concern these days given the lack of physical activities & irregular eating habits. On the other hand, too much of weight loss to up the glam quotient is a gross misconception which unfortunately seems to be prevalent among teen girls. The post here discusses expert tips on teen girl health.
Have a healthy diet
The first maxim of a healthy life is to have a healthy diet. So include lots of fruits and green fresh vegetables in your diet. Do not skip the breakfast as it supplies the needed energy for the rest of the day and saves you from over-binging. As per the doctors, you must make sure to have at least one to two cups of fruits every day.
No crash diets
Do not follow crash diets as you would only end up being sick & malnutrition. Many teen girls today suffer from anorexia and bulimia that although reduce your weight yet make you sick & destroy your glam quotient. Beauty does not signify drastic unnecessary weight loss.
Respect your body
You must understand that different girls carry different builds & all builds have their own beauty appeal. Just because you don’t share the same portfolio as the most popular lass in the class, that doesn’t signify that you are any less beautiful. You should definitely keep your weight in check but do not go over-board with it. There are teen girls who carry a relatively larger portfolio than other girls yet that don’t conclude that they are any less smart or physically inactive. The maxim is to stay “fit”.
Cut down on junk food
Yes, the junk or fast foods are oh-so-irresistible but your body doesn’t feel that way. Common teen problems like acnes & pimples mostly result from these high-fat junk foods. Thus, limit your junk intake to maximum thrice a month and that too at larger intervals. Cut down on soda & sugary drinks as well.
As per the doctors, you must get minimum 8 glasses of water everyday. Water helps you to stay hydrated and also flushes of the bad toxins from your body. It will also improve your skin and hair.
Don’t ignore fat altogether
You body needs fat as well and hence you must include little bit of fat in your daily diet. The experts have opined that teen girls should get minimum 1,800 calories daily. A handful of nuts or 2 slices of dark chocolate will compensate for your junk cravings and supply you with the needed fat as well.
You must follow a regular 30 minutes of exercise daily or minimum 5 days a week. Exercise helps you to stay strong, fit, healthy & beautiful. It keeps you in shape and improves blood circulation that adds on the glam glow naturally.
Smile & stay positive
You must smile & stay positive – you have a big life ahead and depression would only bog you down. As Audrey Hepburn famously said- “Happy girls are the pretties”- this is actually true.
