Hi...I was always overweight as a teenager b/c I never knew how to eat right. Last year I started eating unhealthy and dropped 20 lbs. I was overexercising and undereating. I stopped being that way in june. I hadnt gained but actually lost weight eating normal til early september and then I gained a few lbs. I am at the point where I need to start knowing what to eat and how to work out. My typical workout is just running...usually 2-3 miles. Are supplements healthy? I just need direction and a diet I can stick to... I'm between 125-130 lbs at 5 ft. 3 in. Thanks

It does not sound like you are very overweight...but you might just need to start eating cleaner and getting a better workout routine. I would not be concerned about weightloss supplements.
Eat 5-6 small nutritious meals a day....do not skip meals.
Running is good cardio, but you will need to start building muscle to keep the metabolism up 24/7. You will be amazed how your body will be transformed with increased muscle mass and decreased fat....even if you don't lose a pound.

Thanks for your reply. I appreciate it. What do you suggest I eat in the 5-6 small meals a day? I don't think I know what my body should be getting. Do you know any way to get increased energy for working out because with work and school and other stresses, I find it hard to always find the energy. Thanks again.

Read that page and then click the link (at the bottom of that page) and read page 2.
Be careful hon....he will expect 'favors' for providing you with this information...
