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.

    I'm 15 and a skinny person with a fat belly. On the other hand, my sister who is 14 has an athletic body. Does it make it weird?

    Yep , agreed with other members. Just try to understand their situation, things get better just give them sometime. And you're thinking wrong, your parents even pay attention to you but they just don't show it. And doing things by your own isn't bad, even it's good habit. If you've any problem to do things of your own then you can tell your mom. I'm sure she'll help you. It'll get better! :)

    Talk with your friends, ask them that what happened and why they're doing such weird things. I know it's quite annoying. Otherwise, you ignore them too. If you ignore them few days , they'll stop doing such idiotic things.

    I think you should talk with a trusted adult or you can tell to your best friend's parents. If she bothers you again and too much then ignore her few days then she will stop this. I hope this'll work!
