Heart disease and damaged hearts are just some of the serious and life threatening health risks facing obese and overweight teens. Sadly, today our children have a shorter life expectancy than mine. This is the first time since the Civil War that this is true. Childhood obesity is reversible and preventable and we have no one to blame but ourselves. We cannot continue feeding our kids Pop-Tarts and Coke for breakfast, pizza for lunch at school and McDonald’s for dinner without making them fat and sick and without bankrupting America. It is time that as adults we stop the abuse to our children and start protecting them with healthy plant based food and with physical activity. We must love them by setting an example ourselves – we too must get off the couch and stop eating the food that makes our Nation fat, sick and bankrupt. One thing that we can all do is learn self hypnosis for weight loss. Hypnosis helps us to change our food choices and and to exercise.
Overweight, Obese Teens
Show Early Heart Risks
WebMD Health News, May 21, 2012: Two new studies show the early health risks the ever-enlarging number of obese U.S. teens face, from diabetes to heart damage.
According to new research from the CDC, many overweight and obese teens who appear otherwise healthy already have heart disease risk factors such as high blood pressure. As many as 60% of obese teens are affected. Many obese teens also have troubling physical changes in their heart, such as thicker heart muscle walls, according to another new study.
The main story here is that in addition to obesity, you need to be aware of these other potential risk factors for cardiovascular disease, that these risk factors are present relatively early. As weight increases, we observed an increase in the percentage of adolescents who had at least one cardiovascular risk factor. Among these risk factors are high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and high blood sugar.
The researchers found at least one heart disease risk factor present in:
- 60% of obese teens
- 50% of overweight teens
- 37% of healthy-weight teens

Diabetes and heart damage are preventable and often reversible with healthy eating and exercise.

Putting an end to childhood obesity requires that the whole family be involved. Mom’s and Dad’s must only buy healthy food and snacks, create a family meal environment with the TV off and get off the couch and be active with their kids. Weight loss is a family affair.
