Eating healthy, but not to lose weight?

Hey everyone! I am new to this but in need of a lifestyle change and do not have many other options. Currently, as a college student, my diet consists of pretty much of fruit and junk food. I am 5'8 at about 140 pounds, so I am pretty slender. I do not want to necessarily lose weight, however I do want to lose fat around my belly and love handles. What kind of diet should I follow that would help me target this, but also not lose TOO much weight? Thanks everyone!

Hi avi02

Welcome to the Healthy eating forum. There are a couple of pages within the NHS Choices website that you might find helpful, and I'll put a link to both of them here, the first is a Fitness studio - so you can look at some exercises for toning etc:


The second is the 'Eat Well' pages:


Wishing you success with your goals.

Zest :-)

Hi avi

Have a look at the recipes from Jack Munro for some inspiration. Her recipes are healthy and do not cost too much. Cutting down on the junk food and sugary drinks should help lose the belly fat.
