Alright, I'm 13 years old, 5'5'', and I am 195 pounds currently. I have about two months before school starts again, and I want to look the very best I can. I am on a raw diet (only fruits, veggies and water). Anything else i can do? A workout plan somebody has found successful would be very helpful. :)

Eat frequent, small meals. Preferably every 2 hours. If you don't eat breakfast, start. Drink plenty of water, and exercise. Raw diets are good, but start eating meat and eggs, or your body will start to consume its protein reserves (your muscle tissue) because you are not getting any in your diet. Make sure you are eating enough. If you are not eating enough, your body goes into starvation survival mode, and will cling to every bit of spare calories it can get and hold onto them (in the form of body fat) for future use. EAT FATS. No fat diets are some of the least healthy and ineffective of all time. Don't go macking down on french fries and fast food and use that as an excuse, Get your fats from good sources, nuts, eggs, avocados, fish, and coconut oil are the best sources. Not only are no fat diets nearly impossible to maintain, but you any weight you lose will be put back on in short order as soon as you stop dieting

If you want effective, long lasting weight loss, aim for a 500 calorie deficit a day. Basically eat 500 less calories than what is advised for maintenance. Eat less and your body enters "starvation mode" and you'll stop losing weight.     
   
Aim to eat 1g gram protein per lb of lean bodyweight.  Protein has high satiation properties, and will stop you binging on junk food.  Lean meat such as Chicken, Turkey, Tuna, Salmon and other fish are great sources of lean protein.     
   
Veggies.  Eat lots of veggies.  They're low in calories and high in fibre, which, like protein, possesses a high satiation properties.   
   
Aim for a high protein/fibre, low carb/fat diet.   
   
Drink plenty of water: 0 calories and it stops hunger cravings.   
   
Exercise. Even if it's just for half an hour a day. Running, biking, walking, swimming, rowing. Anything that gets your heart pumping.    
   
Lifting weights also helps.  As you gain more muscle, the calories you consume are used to fuel the muscle in your body, rather than the fat storage.   
   
Remember to not go over your 500 calorie deficit.  Track your calories with a calorie counting app like "myfitnesspal", which basically acts as a food dairy and tells you how many you can consume for that day.
