• How can my morbidly obese six year old daughter lose weight? UPDATED?

    Best answer: Quit the unhealthy foods. I know you need to set an example, but it can be hard when you're a busy person to find time to only eat healthy. I went thru a point when i had so much to do that i ended up eating top ramen, fast food, and bags of chips as my only diet for a long time. You need to make sure that if... show more
    Best answer: Quit the unhealthy foods. I know you need to set an example, but it can be hard when you're a busy person to find time to only eat healthy. I went thru a point when i had so much to do that i ended up eating top ramen, fast food, and bags of chips as my only diet for a long time. You need to make sure that if she eats fast food, she eats only healthy fast food. veggie burgers, sweet potato fries instead of regular fries, burritos instead of fried tacos, etc. Cut out soda as well, if it's hard, switch to diet but don't let her get hooked on to it.
    Its awful how you have to exercise to be fit, but be fit to exercise. it's a vicious cycle.

    Have her eats fruits and veggies a lot because many have "negative calories" where digesting them actually burns more calories than the calories consumed when eating it. If you need a quick meal, order a salad from the mcdonalds kid's menu. Do some research on healthier fast food options. vegan/vegetarian foods help as well. Cut out visits with her aunt, and instead try to keep her with a different relative, a day care, a camp maybe?
    Keep her entertained and distracted from food, it'll help.

    also keep in mind that after she loses a lot of weight, the excess skin will make her look awful and lower her self esteem. It'll only get worse the longer it takes to begin getting healthy.

    It made me very sad to read how she feels sad to not get clothes with the characters on them. my little sister was a quick bloomer and all the bras were boring and bland, she'd feel "older" because it was all adult clothes. Despite anyones size, they are still children.

    Also, don't worry about the doctor. My mom was the most abusive person and she starved us for a couple years due to a mental illness. CPS was called but we still were stuck with her. I doubt that she'll be taken away for this.

    Hope this helps, i feel for you :)

  • Suicidal thoughts?

    No matter how hard I try I just **** everything up and cause pain to other people. I've tried getting professionals help but it hasn't really worked. No body in my life listens or cares.

  • Is it time the UN and the WHO classed sugar as a Class A drug?

    Sugar should be banned completely or at least reclassified as a poison and heavily restricted for use as an additive or ingredient in processed foods.

    Sugar should be banned completely or at least reclassified as a poison and heavily restricted for use as an additive or ingredient in processed foods. There is absolutely NO nutritional value in sugar!! Sugar is bad for you. It is addictive and is the cause of many medical issues. There is NO dietary requirement for carbohydrate. NONE. All sugar IS bad, even in small quantities, just like one hit of heroin is bad. Giving up sugar is not dangerous or wrong, it is ESSENTIAL unless you want to lose your sight, or your limbs, or your mind. Alzheimer's = type 3 diabetes. The Axis of Evil = Meat, wheat and sugar.
