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 have ALOT of friends. I used to have one BFF but she ditched me. After that, I couldn't trust people. I started making more friends so someone would be there for me and I would be there for them. Now, I don't have a BFF. Just a ton of close friends, which I like. But I don't know if I made the right choice of doubting everyone or not.

I'm like my mom and my brother is like my dad, but I can't talk back to my mom because it's rude, even if I wanted to. I will always love my family, though. no matter what. My parents used to be strict, but not anymore too much.  When I was in trouble, it was my mom I was afraid of to face but if I was going to get punished, i was afraid of them from my dad.
