Trust builds as readers discover "Things They Never Told You;" like how puberty naturally increases a girls body fat, diet soda promotes weight gain, and carbohydrates arent all bad. No mention of ideal weight spoils the fun, here; rather, Wiatt and Schroeder utilize an age-appropriate BMI (Body Mass Index) to help judge whos truly overweight and who simply needs "a better body image reality check." Doodled stars and hearts further enliven the books chummy tone, but never upstage the important stuff: food portion guides; nutrients for healthy bodies; calorie requirements based on BMI ranges; low-fat cooking techniques and recipes; weekly menus and shopping strategies for weight loss; and discussions about how a teens emotions often drive her eating cycle. Q & A sections slip between meatier chapters, allowing tough issues like fasting, cravings, and eating disorders to be addressed with empathy and pragmatism. Surprisingly helpful are the restaurant and vending machine guidelines, featuring side-by-side substitution lists, titled "Eat This" and "Not That". Brimming with loving encouragement and the wisdom of gals who have been there, The Diet for Teenagers Only sends a clear message to girls: form good habits now.--Liane Thomas

The format is easy to read and understand. Again, I am not a teenager, but a young Mom. It has helped me already lose 1/3 of my goal post-baby weight. It teaches you to eat healthy, eat healthy amounts, and have a healthy lifestyle (excercise, etc). I love the fact that it has several pages that give actual sized, color examples of the serving size of pizza, muffin, fruit, mac and cheese, etc. I have definitly used the pizza cut out several times!
P.S. A great way to make raw or cooked vegetables taste better without adding fat or even many calories is to dip them in vinegar-balsamic, white wine, distilled white, or many of the flavored vinegars on the market. Also, drink those 6 glasses a water per day. You will need to go to the bathroom more, but you feel... lubricated? I don't know. It just feels nice.

It's alright, perhaps it is not five stars for me simply because I am not too good at followed rules in regards to weight, but one man's trash is another man's treasure, right?Published 19 months ago by animefreak596
