     Losing weight and choosing a healthy lifestyle which includes fitness is difficult for teens who may feel defeated by obesity so early in life. There are several ways that you and your parents can help yourself to learn about fat grams, calories and serving sizes, and have your parents help you to maintain a healthy diet.

     The changes shouldn't only happen in the home; your parents can help fight childhood obesity by encouraging schools to offer a variety of physical activities, healthy food choices and weight intervention programs. Not only will these help the teen who is overweight - but will help all teens to have a healthy body image. Experts suggest parents lobby the local Parent-Teacher Association or pick up the phone and ask what the school is doing to help overweight kids. Also, they say, check with local health care organizations to find healthy lifestyle programs tailored to teens.
