Can you give me a strict diet plan for my 11 year old daughter, she has gained a lot of wieght.?

Not enough room here: Take her to see a good dietitian as well as her own doctor. Weight control is more than just diet alone, especially in an adolescent girl. In brief, provide whole, unprocessed foods. Eliminate fast foods and most sugar. Lead by example. Exercise together - have fun moving. Teach her that food is primarily to satisfy hunger, not to turn to when bored, angry, tired or sad. ...Read more

No diet: Don't subject your daughter to a diet. Instead transition the entire household to healthier food so she is not singled out. This includes ridding the house of processed foods like while flour breads, cakes, sugary cereals and drinks, ice cream, cookies, cake, pasta, white rice, chips, pretzels, fried foods, hot dogs, etc. Add lots of fruits, veggies, beans, nuts, seeds, whole grains, & wild salmon. ...Read more

Hi My Daughter Is 20lbs  Overweight And She Needs To Lose The Weight By September.Do You Have A Specific Diet Plan For Her To Follow?(Exercises Alot)

Diet : I would really like the information that led you to believe that she is 20lbs overweight. Rule of thumb: 100lb/5' and 5lb/inch above. 10% below, and 20% above, still healthy. Since she is active; just cutting out sugar beverages, junk food, and cut back on carbs. Putting a deadline on weight loss, is a lot of pressure on a child. 2-3lbs a week is a better goal. ...Read more

Slow weight loss: of 1/2 to 1 pound a week is healthiest and requires that you cut back 250 to 500 calories a day from your baseline intake when your weight was stable. Be sure to get enough rest and to take in adequate fluids. Limit simple sugars like juice and pop and processed grains like white bread, white rice and pasta. Be patient. It will happen. ...Read more
