<ul><li><p>How to Help Your Child Lose Weight </p><p>If you have a kid at home that needs to lose weight, this article will help you how to begin the process. </p><p>Motivating kids and teens to lose weight in general is harder than adults. Simply because kids are tend to </p><p>be more sensitive and making drastic changes in their diet is not something they will like. This article was </p><p>written by the help of Personal Trainer for kids Winter Park FL. </p><p> </p><p>Before you begin the changes in your kids diet make sure you explain to them whats about to happen </p><p>and why. When going to the groceries start showing your child the nutrition labels on each food you buy </p><p>and make comparison between same type of foods but different manufacturers. Explain to them what </p><p>calories are and what are the hidden fats about calories. This will really click inside your kids head and </p><p>begin making them think why they look differently than other kids. Your child should know how many </p><p>calories should consume per day, what are the health benefits of eating less sweets and more fruit and </p><p>vegetable. </p><p>Mind training is always the first and the hardest thing when it comes to weight loss for kids and teens. </p><p>Making hard rules about what they should eat and what not is not going to work. They will always find a </p><p>way to cheat and eat even more junk food than before. This leads to stress and the diet plan will not just </p><p>not work but instead of them losing weight they will gain more weight. Avoiding this is by having small </p><p>treat everyday in their meal or have a slightly larger one at the end of the week. Let them decide which </p><p>one they prefer. </p><p>Once you begin the diet plan you should see results within the first two weeks. If you dont see your kid </p><p>losing weight you may consider visiting the doctors office. Some times its better to have your doctor talk </p><p>to your kid and explain to them why mammy and daddy are doing this. Also, the doctor will check for any </p><p>medical condition and make sure your child can handle the initial stress from dieting. </p></li><li><p>Fitness and Children </p><p>The best fitness for kids is to let them play outside the house at least 40 mins per day! Encourage your </p><p>children to go out or bring them each day to the local park and play ball with them or go bike riding with </p><p>them, or just a walk in the park will help too. By doing this you will achieve three things at the same time: </p><p> You will create the habit for exercising. </p><p> You will get closer to your child. </p><p> Your child will enjoy your company and will gain trust in you! </p><p>Also, many parents nowadays are getting personal trainers for their kids to help them lose weight. </p><p>Because some children are more comfortable when they are being guided by other adults when doing </p><p>exercises. Simply because personal trainers are always in shape it helps kids to believe what they can look </p><p>alike when working out.This makes losing weight for them fun.
