How Far Should a 15 Year Old Male Run A Day To Keep Healthy and Physically Fit?!

Question: How Far Should a 15 Year Old Male Run A Day To Keep Healthy and Physically Fit?
Combined with a Healthy diet of course it would be good to know. I was thinking something like 5 miles a day minimum to be quite fit? I eat a Diet High in Fruit and Veg with my Carbs, Fats, Protein, Sugars and Fibre as well so that is nothing to worry about and I drink plenty of water. All about getting and keeping fit now through running and other exercises. If somebody could give me a good answer I could make sure I run that distance daily. Thanks!


First of all, good news for you! You can easily slim down and much faster than any other age group as you have the highest metabolism rate. You only need to note three things; Diet, Exercise and Motivation.

On Diet, you need the most nutrient during this period. What you eat will determine your health and physics for the rest of your adulthood. That means, if you don’t slim down during this period, you are likely to get fat always in your adulthood. Also you will likely to be sick easily for the rest of your life. You need to have a balance diet with the correct food like protein, fats, vitamins, etc. (Ladies, if you eat too little, you are likely to have small breast and butt for life). You can’t to be choosy on food. Refer to the blog at the end if you don’t know what you need to eat.

Exercise is at this period, you are able to lose weight fast and develop your muscle too. Exercise every other day for 30 ~ 45 minutes, 3 times a week. Left one day for rest. Cardio exercise like jogging swimming, dancing, aerobics, etc are good to reduce fat fast. Hula loops are good for tummy; others exercise that targets at different part of the body can be refer to the blog at the end of the page.

Lastly, is your will to slim down. You can all set goals to lose weight. But if you did not have the will or you left the goals unchecked. You are unlikely to succeed although you are in the high metabolism group. Also at the blog, you can find ways how to encourage yourself to achieve your goal setting.

I used to be 185 lbs, I manage to lose weight to 125 lbs in a short time and maintain a healthy 133 lbs for many years.



Its not a question of what number, just keep pushing for a little bit more than what you did before each time. Time yourself just add a few minutes on every so often and it will gradually build up. The more you ask of your body the more it can deliver so provided you don't overdo it and pay attention to any pain or discomfort, you can increase your level of fitness to whatever you want.

5 miles is awesome! If that gets easy for you, try 6! Also, don't be afraid to mix it up and try things like biking, swimming, etc..

Two miles would keep you in good shape. Give yourself one or two days off a week to give your knees recovery days and avoid injury.
