Best Ways For Kids To Lose Weight

Jul 16, 2014

Too much pizza, too much video games, and too much Kidzworld… let’s face it you need to make some life decisions to keep off the love handles. But be careful!!! Trying to lose weight can also be dangerous especially for kids going through puberty and growth spurts. Here are the best ways for kids to lose weight…


Food First

Healthy eating is the best decision you can makeHealthy eating is the best decision you can make

The number one rule you should consider when you want to lose weight is “YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT.” It is very simple to see that if you eat a lot of fatty foods with sugar and grease, you are in danger of gaining weight and getting acne. Eating healthy might not taste as good, it might be more expensive, and it might be less convenient… but I guarantee you that it will bring you happiness and a great body to boot.

Sweating with Sports

Sports are a fun way to lose weight. But not all sports will help you lose weight so finding a sport that makes you sweat is the key. Here are a few great sports that will make you sweat off all those milkshakes:

  • Soccer
  • Basketball
  • Tennis
  • Gymnastics
  • Hockey
  • Track & Field
  • Badminton
  • Sit-ups & Push-ups
  • Swimming

Joining a team with a coach is the best way to lose weight because the coach usually makes you work hard and practice vigorous drills and exercises.

Gaga for Yoga

Yoga keeps your body leanYoga keeps your body lean

One of the biggest trends to lose weight that is sweeping the nation is yoga. Yoga is mostly stretching your body into weird positions that might seem uncomfortable at first, but as you get better at it, your body will thank you. Gaining flexibility and losing weight go hand in hand like peanut butter and jam. Not only will you stay lean, yoga shapes your body perfectly to have everyday great posture and graceful movement in whatever you do.

Kill the Car

Biking to school is a great way to stay in shapeBiking to school is a great way to stay in shape

A sneaky way to lose weight is to avoid your parents’ car. By refusing to get rides to school, you will have to find another way to commute and obviously walking, running, skateboarding or biking to school will totally keep you in good shape.

Childhood obesity is at an all time high and let’s be honest here… it is never easy to lose weight. Everyone wants a quick and easy solution, but you have to realize that the best way to lose weight is slowly and steadily.

The biggest problem most people have is that they don’t lose weight for the first week and then they give up. However, they might not even know that as they are working hard and exercising, they are burning fat and gaining muscle which usually can actually cause you to gain weight at first, and then as you keep burning fat after all your muscles have been developed, you lose weight later. Be Patient!!!

How Often Does Your Family Exercise?

  • All the time - we're a totally fit family.
  • We exercise at least once a week - but we could do more.
  • Not every often - maybe once a month.
  • Never. We're a family of couch potatoes.

As the previous person said, look online. There are very cute clothes available in bigger sizes! Also when you go shopping take a look in popular stores as well as less popular that might look as if they're for older people. Often they follow very similar trends but have bigger sizes!

I think you should go. It might be difficult but you never know. You might find something to talk about with his fiance and find a way to talk to her! Or you could be more social with other family. The only way to beat being unsocial in big groups is to put yourself into the situation and learn. You could actually have a great time :) Just relax, be yourself. Ask questions. People love to talk about themselves so ask lots. It'll keep conversation going and you'll learn about possible later conversation topics. Also smile and be friendly. Make small talk. Remember you're there to celebrate a happy time in someone's life. You might not like it but it's their big day, one of the biggest in their life. And your dad and sister are going so you could always stick around them if socializing doesn't work.

You can probably search for cute plus size clothes on the internet to find places that sell clothes that fit. As for style just wear what you feel comfy in.
