Your kid’s diet may be setting them up for heart disease. If you know me, you know that I am passionate about putting an end to childhood obesity. It is shameful that in 2015 in the U.S., 99% of children eat unhealthy diets. Childhood obesity is preventable and reversible and we must stop abusing our children with foods that make them fat and sick.
Kids are naturals at self hypnosis and at Seattle Weight Loss Hypnosis with Roger Moore I am committed to help children learn hypnosis for weight loss so that eating healthy is easy and fun.
Heart Disease Begins in Childhood
Dr.Green.com: Emerging research shows that by the time children enter elementary school, many already have risk factors for heart disease. According to one recent large-scale study, a staggering 40 percent of children ages six through 11 have elevated cholesterol levels. And more children than ever are now at risk for high blood pressure. The risks only multiply when it comes to the third of American children who are overweight or obese: Seventy percent of obese children have at least one precursor for heart disease.
Kid’s Diet and Heart Disease
How can the signs of heart disease, typically considered an exclusively adult disease, manifest so young? It starts with what our kids are eating. According to new research, 99 percent of children eat unhealthy diets. For most of us, this doesn’t come as a surprise. From chicken nuggets on the lunch line to hot dogs at barbecues and ice cream cones after soccer games, junk food bombards impressionable youngsters everywhere they turn. As a result, most children consume an excess of artery-clogging saturated fat. And nearly all children –nine in every 10 – eat too much sodium. At the same time, most children’s diets are severely lacking in heart-healthy fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.
Is it possible to help our children and turn the tide on this epidemic? As a doctor, I know that it is. The good news is that simple dietary changes are some of the most powerful and proven tools we have to combat many of these symptoms, including elevated cholesterol and high blood pressure.
What Kind of Diet is Best?
New research from the Cleveland Clinic shows that when obese children adopt a low-fat, plant-based diet, they lose weight and experience improvements in heart disease risk factors within weeks. Children in the study – along with their supportive families – purged their diets of animal products. Out came the meat, eggs, and cheese, and in went the fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes. Immediately, their intake of fat, saturated fat, and dietary cholesterol plummeted, while their fiber intake increased significantly.
Within a month, the children’s improvements were dramatic: lower weight, lower blood pressure, and lower total and LDL cholesterol levels. Plant-based diets have long been known to improve heart health in adults, but this is the first study to demonstrate the diet’s benefits on cardiovascular disease risk in children.
