  • I get a lot of emails from teenagers with a variety of questions about exercise and weight loss: Is it safe to weight train? How many times a week should I workout? How can I lose weight? There aren't always easy answers to these questions, but there's one thing working in your favor: The younger you are, the easier it is to lose weight. Fat loss often comes easier to young, strong bodies with faster metabolisms, and the earlier you start, the easier it is to keep going as you get older.

    You'll find at least some of the answers to the questions posed above in the following resources, hopefully, giving you the guidance you need to start exercising.

    Are you a teen who's had experience with weight loss or did you have a weight problem when you were a teenager? If so, leave a comment and tell us about it. How did you find healthy ways to lose weight?
