Learn to Eat Healthily with LifeRight

Kids these days are exposed to a lot of unhealthy foods and often aren't as active as they need to be to maintain a healthy body and mind. If your doctor has advised you to eat more healthfully in order to maintain a body weight that's right for you, why not ask him or her about LifeRight for Kids? The program was designed by pediatricians, psychologists, fitness professionals, a dietitian, a cook and even a life coach. Check it out.

The Program

The Doctors' LifeRight for Kids program is a children's health and fitness program that teaches kids and parents about weight loss. The program includes:
  • A journal to track your progress.
  • A 'Parent's Playbook' that teaches your folks how to support you.
  • Five fitness DVDs to keep you active.
  • Five educational DVDs to teach you and your family how to stay motivated and make healthier food choices.
  • A cookbook filled with healthy meal ideas - including recipes that kids can make for themselves.
  • Nutrition shakes and a shaker cup to help you get a jumpstart on your weight loss.
  • A tape measure and pedometer to help you track your progress.
  • Obesity Facts and Figures

  • About 32% of US children are considered overweight or obese.
  • Approximately half of all obese children will go on to be obese adults.
  • To be considered "obese" you normally need to be 25% above a healthy weight for your height.
  • Childhood obesity has been linked to several health problems including the development of type two diabetes.
  • Do I Need to Lose Weight?

    If you think you have a weight problem, you should talk to your parents and your family doctor. Ask him or her if the Doctor's LifeRight for Kids program could be right for you.

    Pretty much, but in weird ways. I'll have my dad one day telling me that hair (that's around less than a foot in length) is too long. Or, when I'm eating breakfast, he'll yell at me to eat my ####### (sounds really wrong) ,specifically, first, under the guise that he "told me to".
