This is a safe and natural product used for weight loss. I will say I did think the diet associated with this is a little strict but it does seem to work. I have had a child that was using the product for about 2 weeks now and I have seen results.
I been using the drops for a week now and I can definitely see a difference.I noticed it helping with the desire for junk food and feeling less hungry.I take the drops 3 times per day with a little water.1-2 tablets at a time.
The pills are easy to swallow.The liquid has a smell and taste is alittle bad but you will get use to it.The pills have a bit of a chalky taste to them.
How to Help An Overweight Teen
Your teen’s weight is affecting his health — physically or mentally — so you’re concerned. Maybe he’s been diagnosed with a weight-related health problem, like high blood pressure or sleep apnea. Or maybe he worries about his size or faces bullies at school.
You want to help, but it’s not easy for a parent to know how. While your teen might feel upset or angry about his weight, he may also not want you to meddle. As much as he may try to tackle his problems on his own, though, it’s important for you to be involved.
You can help your kid make changes to his diet and exercise habits that will put him on a healthier track.
Set the Stage for Success
A few tactics will let you set him up to make healthy choices.
Talk with your teen’s doctor about his BMI.
The doctor can calculate his body mass index (BMI), a way to measure body fat percentage, based on weight and height. She can compare the result with other teens his age. If his BMI falls within the overweight or obese range, talk with the doc about what his weight goals should be.
He may not need to actually lose weight — just maintain and “grow into it” as he gets taller. But if he does need to slim down, experts say teens shouldn’t drop more than 2 pounds a week.
Talk with your child to get his buy-in.
He has to be on board and involved with any plan to lose weight. Your approach is key.
Surprising Reasons You’re Gaining Weight.
Don’t tell your teen he needs to drop extra pounds. Talk to him. Ask questions like, “How do you feel about your weight?”
Then, listento him. If he pushes back, lay off the topic for a little while. Hopefully you’ll have planted a seed for thought, and he’ll be more open the next time you bring it up.
Be a coach, not a sheriff.
You have more of an influence over your child than you might think. The trick is to not force a healthy lifestyle on him. Encourage him to find his own reasons to change his diet or get more exercise.
Research supports ideas that may seem like common sense:
Overweight teens don’t feel happy about their size. They don’t want to be teased at school. But they do want to feel in control.
Tips to Lose 100 Pounds or More
Start with changes at home.
Help your kid succeed by making good changes for everyone in your family — including yourself. If you single out one person, it won’t work. He’ll feel criticized and punished, not motivated. Everyone in the family will benefit when you set health goals together.
Share your struggle.
Changes might be hard to make, even for the adults. It’s OK if your teen sees you struggling to build new habits. Let him hear your frustration as you waver between a healthy snack like carrots and hummus versus chips and dip. Let him know that it can be hard to make the time and energy to go for a walk around the neighborhood. But remind him — and yourself — that feeling good afterward is worth it.
The best way to change how your teen eats is to keep it simple. Start with five basic steps.
Lose the soda. Swap those calorie-heavy drinks, including juices and sports drinks, for good old water or low-fat milk.
Make vegetable and fruits easy snack choices. Keep them clean, cut, and waiting in the front of the fridge so they’re easy to see and eat.
Encourage breakfast every day.
Teens will often give up their morning meal to sleep later, but that could mean they’re so hungry at lunch that they’ll overeat or give into junk-food cravings. So hand her something to eat on the way to school, like a smoothie made out of yogurt and fresh fruit, or an apple and a wedge of cheese.
Don’t keep junk food in the house. Although you have limited control of what your teen eats outside your walls, you can keep the bad stuff off the menu in your home.
Eat at home. Restaurant foods have an average of 33% more calories than the same meal cooked at home, research shows. One study found that the more often a family ate together, the less likely a teen was to be overweight.
Health experts recommend that teens get at least 60 minutes of exercise a day. But if your child isn’t too active now, she’ll need to build up to that goal.
Try these tactics to get her moving:
Help her set small, achievable goals. It’s fine to start with 10 minutes a day — as long as she does it. Then have her slowly add a few minutes every day. When she succeeds with small steps, she’ll build her self-confidence and stay motivated.
Get the whole family involved. Take family hikes, or go on bike rides together. Keep jump ropes and hand weights around the home.
Get pedometers for everyone to help you all take more steps. It’s easier for a teen to move more if everyone is doing it together.
