Re: Teen Obesity
Often times, obesity is a symptom of an underlying issue...physical, environmental, or phychological.
I would start with a full medical workup, to rule out and glandular or other medical causes.
Is there anxiety/depression? This could be a cause and effect type thing that often accompanies obesity.
What environmental issues could be changed? What types and amounts of foods are served, and what activities do the children enjoy?
I am no expert in obesity, but I think a good nutritionist and a good doctor could help tremendously. Your love and support, of course, is the best thing of all...and it sounds like you have plenty of that!
Good luck to you all
