SERIOUS QUESTION
SERIOUS QUESTION
12/2/12 8:16 AM
Hi, I have a quick question. I was wondering if I could still lose weight if I exercised three days, then took one rest day and repeated. The exercise would either be an Insanity DVD or a run, and I ordered P90X so I would probably make a hybrid workout. I am 5'3", about 125 pounds, and 16 years old. Can I still lose weight if I try to eat better and stick to this workout? Thanks yall. <3

Yes! As long as you are consistent with both your exercise and nutrition. Make sure you are on the right eating plan.

Exercise has a lot less to do with fat loss then most people think.
You can work out as little as once a week and still lose fat if you have a good diet, and the working out once a week would be more for muscle mass maintenance than fat loss.

This poster has it right on.

I would also say that at your height and weight, you shouldn't be losing too much. You might consider some weight training to firm up your curves. (I'm 5 ft 3 in, 122 lbs...but way older - 39 yrs.) I also wouldn't go too low-cal at your age...I did that, and I think it slowed down my metabolism for years, so I gained weight easily later. (I've since lost that weight.)
