Help your teen lose weight
follow Jared as he loses weight

help your teen lose weight

Jared is 15 years old and weighs 294 lbs. At his last doctor check-up, his body mass index was 40. He is 5'11" tall. He wears a size 3X shirt.

His homeschool program requires 180 minutes of exercise per week, so we decided to begin a weight loss program along with his exercise. Jared loves to eat, but he also wants to be healthy. 

A colorful smoothie can help your teen lose weight and be just as satisfying after a workout as a slushy--and no added sugar.

Our Plan

  • 1. Jared will exercise everyday from 30 minutes to 1 hour. he began this last week and with exercise alone he has lost four pounds. His beginning weight was 298 lbs.
  • 2. Jared will not drink more than one coke a day. If he drinks one, he needs to drink at least  two glasses of water that day. He is going to drink water anyway, but he is going to have difficulty stopping cokes.
  • Jared is going to keep a food diary--he will write in it everything he eats each day. In the evening we will check to make sure he is eating healthy.
  • Jared is weighing at the same time every morning. Some people diet and weigh only once a week. He wants to know daily what his weight is.
  • We will have fruit sitting out for snacks. Nuts and a very small amount of dark chocolate will be allowed.
