Are you trying to lose weight or wondering if you are carrying too much weight for your age? Teenage years are a time of extreme bodily changes, especially as you hit puberty. These changes can be confusing and leave you wondering if you are growing and gaining weight at the expected rate.
A quick search on Instagram or Google for, “how to lose weight” might leave you more confused than ever, as you are bombarded with conflicting information about how to lose weight.
