How can I help my 17 year old lose weight?

 

A. I Have a 17 yr old over weight how can I help her to loose wait.

 

Q. Rather than overly restricting food, which can make somebody feel deprived and then want to overeat, encourage consumption of healthy foods like fruit and vegetables and encourage fun activities (like dancing) that help increase physical activity. Keep high calorie, low nutrition snacks, desserts, and sweet drinks out of the house to reduce temptation; discourage TV time. Healthy Weight Management
