The Diet for Teenagers Only

Here’s the deal. You are in the biggest, most important growth spurt of your life. This is the most critical time for you to learn to eat right and treat your body with the respect –– and the nutrition –– it deserves.

––from The Diet for Teenagers Only

Teenage girls face a relentless assault on their self–esteem: television, the Internet, and magazines all barrage young women with images of perfection –– and that perfection is closely linked with being thin. Sadly, research shows that only 14 percent of teenage girls are happy with their body shape and size. More than half of them think they should lose weight. And most shocking of all, obesity among teenagers has tripled in the last decade alone. Young people are victims not only of poor self–esteem and eating disorders, but also of larger health issues.

In The Diet for Teenagers Only , Carrie Wiatt and Barbara Schroeder give teenagers the dietary weapons they need to fight back and make smart, independent decisions about nutrition. Written in a conversational, lighthearted voice, but filled with practical tips and must–have information, The Diet for Teenagers Only is a breakthrough diet plan specifically tailored to fit teenage needs and lifestyles. Among the essential ingredients of this diet you’ll find:

color cutouts of favorite foods that clarify what portion sizes should look like;

recommended 7–day meal plans for different calorie needs –– and create–your–own–menu options;

easy–to–follow recipes and grocery shopping tips that inspire teenagers to take nutrition into their own hands;

a complete illustrated exercise program to complement weight–loss efforts, boost energy, and strengthen young bodies; and

a personal food diary for charting daily progress.

For teenagers who struggle with food and their weight, or for those who simply want a head start on designing a smart and satisfying food lifestyle, no other diet book will do. The Diet for Teenagers Only serves up fun, safe, and inspirational ways for teenagers to lose weight and be healthy, while never losing sight of the larger picture: While striving to improve your body can be a very healthy goal, learning to love your body is a far more important achievement –– and one that will last a lifetime!

Tailored for 13- to 19-year-old girls (sorry, guys) The Diet for Teenagers Only dishes up a sensible balance of recipes, weight loss strategies, and straight talk about food. Writing partners Carrie Wiatt (Eating by Design) and Barbara Schroeder convey all the messages nutrition-wise moms want their daughters to hear–in an informed, best-friend voice their teens will actually listen to.

Trust builds as readers discover “Things They Never Told You;” like how puberty naturally increases a girl’s body fat, diet soda promotes weight gain, and carbohydrates aren’t all bad. No mention of ideal weight spoils the fun, here; rather, Wiatt and Schroeder utilize an age-appropriate BMI (Body Mass Index) to help judge who’s truly overweight and who simply needs “a better body image reality check.” Doodled stars and hearts further enliven the book’s chummy tone, but never upstage the important stuff: food portion guides; nutrients for healthy bodies; calorie requirements based on BMI ranges; low-fat cooking techniques and recipes; weekly menus and shopping strategies for weight loss; and discussions about how a teen’s emotions often drive her eating cycle. Q & A sections slip between meatier chapters, allowing tough issues like fasting, cravings, and eating disorders to be addressed with empathy and pragmatism. Surprisingly helpful are the restaurant and vending machine guidelines, featuring side-by-side substitution lists, titled “Eat This” and “Not That”. Brimming with loving encouragement and the wisdom of gals who have been there, The Diet for Teenagers Only sends a clear message to girls: form good habits now.–Liane Thomas

Fat Girl Truths: Practical Weight Loss Advice for Overweight and Obese Curvy Women

Weight loss and dieting advice is centered around women with just a few pounds to lose and doesn’t take into account those that are severely overweight or even obese. Well I am Jamie Anderson and I am here to tell you that I understand the plight of not only the overweight and obese but the curvy women with larger busts and butts.

I will not tell you some magical secret to make you super model small in a night and I will not claim this battle will be easy. What I will do is show you low budget and pragmatic ways to change your life while not depriving you of the things you love. Weight loss and becoming healthy should never be a temporary fix and it shouldn’t cause you to get up foods and drinks you enjoy entirely.

I invite you to start a journey with me and read about the journey I took to become much more healthy. Not only do I offer my advice but also have links to helpful resources and even ways to contact me for one on one advice for your individual needs! Let us start a community that is uplifting to women of bigger bones and show that we can support, encourage and motivate each other to change and maintaining a healthier lifestyle.

Why should you accept my advice? I have been overweight and even tipped into obese and I have lost the weight and become healthier and did it all the hard way; changing habits and exercise. I have dealt with stress/emotional eating, had two sons within 11 months and also work at home and once led a very sedentary lifestyle. I understand the grabbing whatever is quickest to warm up to eat and the dislike of drinking plain water. I have tested fad diets, various workout machines, gym classes and diet pills. The desperation to drop the weight and get healthy is all too real for me. All of that was my inspiration to look into the science and psychology behind not only losing weight but why we gain! I used this knowledge and mixed it with my story to bring you practical advice on how to start, stay motivated and life hacks on how to get to a healthy weight and maintain!

Allow me to join you in this journey to better ourselves!
