I should add that I’ve spent most of my life dieting, regaining the weight, and an additional 10 pounds.
The fact is that we should pay attention to what we eat, and kids need nutrition education to offset the barrage of junk food advertisements. For those who cannot afford visits to nutritionists, Weight Watchers provides an outline for action in THINKING about food. Now, using their awful “food” products is a mistake, just as using Nutrisystem or Jenny Craig. But thinking about what you choose to eat, in advance of hunger, it critically important.
