September is National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month

If you’ve read my posts over years you know that one of my soap box issues is childhood obesity. It is unconscionable to me that 17% of U.S. children aged two to nineteen are obese.

The consequences of childhood obesity are far reaching. Young children today are dealing with heart disease, diabetes and other health issues that were  once thought to only occur in older adults.

Health care costs are skyrocketing creating a devastating impact on our National economy. According to Mission:Readiness, “27 percent of young Americans are too overweight to join the military. Roughly 15,000 young potential recruits fail their entrance physicals every year because they are too heavy.” Childhood obesity is impacting our national security.

I’ve always said that childhood obesity is a family affair. And, childhood obesity and its resulting diseases are preventable and reversible. It takes mom and dad deciding to take action.

Mom and Dad, stop buying the food that makes you and your family fat and sick. Get off the couch and get outside with your kids and play. Go for walks, bike rides, swim and play active games. Lead by your example.


Weight loss hypnosis can save your family

Weight loss hypnosis can easily become a family affair. When I accept children as hypnosis weight loss clients, I require that every member of the family be in my office and involved in making family lifestyle changes.

Why do I insist that the whole family be involved? Because it works. It doesn’t work to have a 12 year-old in my office all excited about making radical lifestyle changes and then have Mom pick him up and take him to McDonald’s because she doesn’t have time to make dinner.

When the whole family gets involved, real positive changes can occur that benefit everyone. And the benefits go way beyond weight loss. Just some of the added benefits include improved academic performance, improved sports performance, improved musical performance, stress reduction and overall increased happiness and peace of mind.

You and your family deserve to enhance your health and happiness. So make childhood obesity month a family affair.

Thank you from a former child client

Not long ago, a slender, physically fit young man in his late 20’s stopped me on the ferry. He remembered me from about 17 years ago when he and his mother became Slender For Life™ weight loss hypnosis clients. I certainly didn’t recognize him, but I did remember he and his Mom.

They had been living on the Standard American Diet (SAD) eating macaroni and cheese, grilled cheese, junk food and fast food.

He and his mom both lost weight and started working out. They made the change to a wholefood plant-based lifestyle. He became a high school and college athlete. Today he runs marathons and has already begun teaching self-hypnosis to his son.

This young man thanked me repeatedly for the impact that Slender For Life™ hypnosis for weight loss had and continues to have on him today. Today, he and his wife are committed to a plant-based lifestyle and regularly use self-hypnosis.

Weight loss hypnosis can make lasting healthy changes for you and your family for generations to come.

The pain and suffering inflicted on children by the American diet is so brutal that if it were administered with a stick, parents would be put in jail.” ~ John McDougall, MD

Childhood Obesity Awareness Month

Physicians Committee For Responsible Medicine (PCRM): Obese children and adolescents are at risk for a multitude of diseases and conditions. So what is at risk? What are some of the problems or complications in which childhood obesity effects children now and in the future?

  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Hypertension
  • High Cholesterol
  • Heart Disease

Fortunately, a plant-based diet provides the nutrition for children and teenagers to thrive. Research shows that a low-fat diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains reduces the risk for heart disease in obese children. Read Childhood Obesity Awareness Month
