From the Back Cover

Tiger Greene was a big kid. And he kept getting bigger. By age twelve, he was 250 pounds—and miserable. His joints hurt, he was at risk of very grown-up medical conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease, and he was teased by other kids at school. The only place he could use his extra weight was on the football field, where he was a "bulldozer."

One day, he decided to make a change. Within just months of making simple but important swaps in his diet and working out twice a day, Tiger lost sixty pounds and eleven inches from his waistline, cut his percentage of body fat in half, and got off all his medications. He went from not being able to run a lap around the football field to running 5K and 10K races for charity.

But he didn't want to make just his own life better. He also wanted to help other kids. He formed Team Tiger, a nonprofit organization, and partnered with NFL great Marcus Stroud to create Sacking Obesity camps for children and families. His drive and enthusiasm motivated other kids to want to get in the game and start being healthier, too. When he announced the camps, overweight kids and their parents came running—literally.

Whether devising healthier menu options for local Little League park concessions, partnering with sports stars to help obese kids around the country, or speaking to children's healthcare providers, Tiger has spread the message that kids really can change their lives—and their futures.

Sacking Obesity: The Team Tiger Game Plan for Kids Who Want to Lose Weight, Feel Great, and Win on and off the Playing Field gives young people—and some grown-ups, too—a simple game plan for better living. It includes menu plans, exercise routines, and inspirational stories about kids who have decided to make good choices in their lives, and then have seen the remarkable results.

Trying to lose weight can feel overwhelming, especially when you're a kid, but you're not alone. Tiger says, "Yes, we can—follow me!" And then he leads the way.

We placed this book in our middle schools with PE teachers, not with the counselors. PE teachers can ID kids who want to feel competitive, but don't believe anyone else cares. This book is a great beginning.Sacking Obesity: The Team Tiger Game Plan for Kids Who Want to Lose Weight, Feel Great, and Win on and off the Playing Field
