you can get some excercise videos which you can excercise to in the comfort of your room. thats what i started with. as time went by, i became an expert, to the extent that am now able to create my own excercise programes and aerobic steps with some music

I have an stationary bicycle and a running machine in my room, which is great cause I can exercise watching movies and etc... eating more and in smaller portions really does work, it did for me... right now I just ate after 6 hours without eating, result I was so hungry I overate, but if you snack fruits or protein bars between meals you won't get hungry and they really won't make you fat, just do the math and see if they're within the amount of calories you can eat per day ( to know how much you can eat you can calculate your metabolism google Basal metabolic rate.

I worry when people ask about exercising in private because this is what i would do when i was very sick with an eating disorder.

If you are trying to build muscle, and get a strong core...focus on your abs and perform exercises that strengthen all of your abdominal muscles. (you need to do more than just sit ups and crunches). Pushups and squats are a good start to build muscle in your upper and lower body respectively. Building muscle is key to burning fat, becoming healthy, and staying in shape.

Make sure the meals you eat are healthy. If you aren't already, take a multi-vitamin that has 100% of most of your vitamins and minerals. For a snack, have fresh fruits or vegetables. Cut out all food that contains high fructose corn syrup out of your diet and drink water instead of soda. If you like to drink sweet beverages, buy plain carbonated water and mix it with 100% juice or just drink 100% fruit juice.

Finally, some people (myself included) who use certain beauty products and soaps actually retain water because the product contains parabens. If you switch to plain dove bar soap and a non-paraben containing shampoo and conditioner like the l'oreal 'ever' line and eliminate all moisturizers that also have parabens any extra water weight you are holding in your skin will dissipate within a week or so.

Honeypie agony auntEating less is not necessarily going to get you skinnier nor healthier. Eating too little can wreck your metabolism and make your body store fat. Something you don't want. And eating only twice a day may result in overeating at the meals you do take.

Personally, I eat 3 meals and snack in between. Usually I don't go more then 3 hours without something to eat. It keeps my metabolism fired up.

What DOES matter is what you put in your body. Know your serving sizes. Eat when you are hungry. Stay away from junk.

As for exercises, well you can start out easy. These videos linked below are "only" 5 minutes a say. But there is nothing to say that you can up the repetitions and the time you spend doing them:

Daily workout :

Cardio :


You can alternate Core/Cardio ones. One on even days, the other on odd. Also I can recommend Yoga. There are a BUNCH of Yoga videos for beginners out there (I'm sure you can find some on YouTube as well as in any bookstore) Jillian Michael's made a video (Yoga Meltdown) that uses a lot of the poses from yoga but in a "work out" way. Pretty fun and not too hard for beginners. If you are more hardcore, I can recommend "Insanity work out".

Most of all, be consistent. Commit to getting fitter. Go out for a walk/run/bike ride. And drink plenty of water. Cut the soda, cut the sugar.
