Conquer childhood obesity
Yes, we can conquer childhood obesity! Children become overweight and obese for a variety of reasons. The most common causes are genetic factors, lack of physical activity, unhealthy eating patterns, or a combination of these factors.
But here is the deal: Just because you are genetically predisposed to being overweight does not mean that you will be or have to be overweight. A healthy whole-food plant-based lifestyle and exercise can prevent and reverse childhood obesity – even when genetically predisposed.
Childhood obesity facts
Let’s look at the childhood obesity facts in the United States. Since the 1970s, the percentage of children and adolescents affected by obesity has more than tripled.
Data from 2015-2016 show that nearly 1 in 5 school age children and young people (6 to 19 years) in the United States has obesity.
Childhood obesity is a National tragedy. It is child abuse. And, bottom line, we cannot afford the healthcare costs of this preventable and reversible suffering that we inflict on our children.
Hypnosis for childhood obesity
Hypnosis for childhood obesity works. How do I know? Because frequently slender adults stop and introduce themselves to me and tell me how much I helped them as a child or a teen to lose weight and keep it off.
The most recent person that stopped to talk to me on the ferry is now 30 years old. He said he was 12 when his family first came to see me. I was so thankful that he talked to me and introduced me to his slender children.
Childhood obesity is a family affair. When parents contact me about an overweight child under the age of 16, I let the parents know that the parents and siblings must participate in the weight loss journey.
It does not work to have a child eager to lose weight and for McDonald’s or KFC to be served for dinner. It does not work to tell the child to go out and exercise, Mom, Dad and the siblings must also get out and move.
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
