Stop Dieting

As a Registered Dietitian, I have never believed in diets or dieting as a way to get healthier.

I want to challenge you as a parent who may have struggled with the diet roller coaster to get off of it TODAY!

How do you know if you have been in the diet rat race?

Think about how diets, scales, food or weight preoccupation have ruled your life?

Maybe you are a victim of the stop and start diet cycle?

Maybe you view supermarkets, restaurants, and clothing stores as enemy territory?

Then you’ll love the e-book that I want to give you. By reading it, you will join the no dieting revolution....and then teach it to your kids and model it to your family.

It's a new way of thinking; deciding when and what to eat, setting realistic goals about your physical size and throwing out your bathroom scales.

With the fallout of the Atkins culture and a renewed interest in an alternative to dieting, I wanted to share this important and timely study with you recently published in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association. Link to the new study and journal article. 

Childhood Obesity Epidemic

The Wellness Council of America has just finished a piece authored by Jon Robison, PhD, along with Carmen Cool and Elizabeth Jackson who have put together an issue called, " Absolute Advantage on Kids, Eating, Weight and Health.

The purpose of this work is to call attention to what is happening to our kids in the name of the "Childhood Obesity Epidemic," and to offer alternatives that actually have the potential to help our children to be healthier and happier.
