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.

    Calm down. Ignore her. You are YOU, don't let anyone change you. If someone hurts, cry a river and build a bridge over it cx

    Hmmm....Then she mustn't be necessarily "using" you, if she is not getting something in return ( As far as we know of). However, It does sound like she is being extremely unfair. That just might be how she is. Not exactly loyal to anyone. Well, try to talk to her about it and tell her how you feel. And, if it doesn't work out, then she might not be a great friend to hang around with, and maybe you will find someone else who enjoys your company. I hope this helps, and good luck :)

    No not really. Like I said, one minute she's all smiley and then she doesn't even look at me. Most of the time I see her with Daniela and Andrea. Today she was asking me if I was going to hang out with her, Daniela, Andrea and Luisa during recess. When I told her that I was 'going to have to think' she was like, "Whatever." and ran off to catch up with the Threesome. Thanks. :)
