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.

    throughout school I have always been picked on weither it be because of my interests or just my personality. In middle school I was called ####### everyday by all the guys in my grade. One of my teachers even bullied me and my mom never believed me because my teacher was so nice to her... I ended up crying on the 3rd day of my freshman year because the kids in my class were so mean to me... I'm gonna be a sophomore in highschool this year and I really don't want to go back to school because I'm afraid that it will be a repeat of freshman year... I need advice on how to make the best of the rest of school if I have to deal with the people that bully me...

    My mom. She utterly hates me and whenever we fight she not only takes all my things away in a rage so I can't talk to anyone online, she screams about how I'm stupid, lazy and a horrible person and other similar bad stuff. Thanks for the self esteem boost Mom (:
