  • I believe that teenagers and even adults need to know the importance of this topic because it is a serious matter. Our generation is growing worse of over weight children, and the next generation will become over populated of obese kids. There needs to be more organic foods and more activities for children in school.
  • PositiveIf people eat small proportions they will loose weight Eat big breakfast and you can burn your food throughout the morning Medium lunch because you feel full quickly Small dinner- by the end of the day you won’t feel like your starvingFollow the food pyramids because every food group is important to you body.Negative Some food programs are sometimes successful but can cause health problemsPeople spend to much money on programs that they can just work on at home.People get surgery to look thinner, eat less, and they spend to much money.( (
  • -Having a better environment in your house hold will make you feel better about your self. Having variety of colors on your plate of fruit and vegetables-The food pyramid has everything that someone uses for there diet-Eating natural food would have chemicals that will improve your health, eating “junk” food like chips or to much microwave food can cause types of Cancers in your body(
  • Teenagers get a lot of drama going around them and sometime just wanting to go to a fast food place is getting bad. They need to try healthier food that will get rid of cravings so they not shove food in there mouths. “When life brings me down I need a snack a.k.a Comforting foodWhat should I stay away fromTHE COMFORTING FOOD!Ice creamChipsCandyPopcorn Soda What should do I eat?Yogurt (frozen or non)Cereal (Cheerios, whole Grain)FruitsLow fat foodsWater (
  • 1)Gaining muscle can help people mentally and emotionally, special those days when something terrible happen running through it helps to not think about the situation By working out helps people with anger problems. Decreases depression 2) Maintaining the body will not confuse your body system by staying fit will help keep a balance diet3) Decreases the risk of health problems. When working out it improves having health problems like diabetes, blood pressure, cholesterol etc.If have medical problems it have help decrease some of the problems, working out helps lower down blood pressure (“Body Fat and Your Health”, TheGuelph Mercury)
  • It is important to move around everyday. Just walking is a good way to be active. We need to move our bodies to burn fat or calories. I really helps a lot when it comes of up coming age and not getting risks of health problems like diabetes. Moving around helps you burn fat and by burning the fat makes the metabolism get faster.Keeps you movingNo risk of health problemsDiabetesHigh blood pressureBlood sugar“it reduces the long-term risk of developing cardiovascular disease” (Braunstein)Makes your metabolism faster("A new model - Combining weights and aerobics”,Joel B. Brainstein)
  • Your not putting enough effort when your reading and on the tread mill, listening to music would be better because you will be listening to music and staying focus.("Bad-habit Busters”, Karen Kwan )
  • 2) Skipping a snack can slow you down eating like nuts or banana will keep you energized("Bad-habit Busters”, Karen Kwan )
  • 3) People can actually confuse there muscle if they change there works out everyday and they won’t gain ("Bad-habit Busters”, Karen Kwan )
  • 4)Weights that are too light will not help gain muscle, if you don’t feel the work out in your arms then you need to go heavier.("Bad-habit Busters”, Karen Kwan )
  • 5) Better keeping track of your weight by fitting into jeans to see if you lost weight, but sometimes the scale can also lie. Each day your weight can change, pick a day of the week and weight your self every week to keep a better track.("Bad-habit Busters”, Karen Kwan )
  • 6) Its better to do different works out every month to keep your muscle guessing and challenging them to get bigger and stronger. It also helps by improving parts of your body if you do different types of work out besides cardio. Cardio is good for some parts of your body but not all.("Bad-habit Busters”, Karen Kwan )
  • 7) To much socializing will distract a you and you loose focus on loosing weight. If there's a bunch of people you know at the gym its good to talk but if its distracting you to work out then your not getting the feeling of a good work out.("Bad-habit Busters”, Karen Kwan )
  • 8) Yoga and Pilates are good but you got to add strength training with these because if those types of work out that just keeping you active, if you want to improves some muscle need to have strength training to your work out. ("Bad-habit Busters”, Karen Kwan )
  • 9) You should look at the scale at least once a week no less then that because your weight might not change everyday.("Bad-habit Busters”, Karen Kwan )
  • 10) What happens when you get those hard work outs? Do you continue or stop? Most people after they get to there dream body they slack of keeping it because they stop after the program("Bad-habit Busters”, Karen Kwan )
  • Just by walking can get teenagers to be in better shape. As long as they do it more then thirty minutes a day can make a difference. Going to different place can be be good because you wont get bored and it will challenge your body to walk a different path everyday.Try to making challenges Going to the groceries park the car farther then usualWalk up and down the stairsWalking around the neighborhoodHanging with friends and just walk and talk(Walk A Way The Pounds, Leslie Sansone)
  • Basic quotes of when people “say” that there going to start exercising or dieting“I will start tomorrow”“Defiantly next week”“After the holidays”“Summer time so I can put on my birthday suit”“To much going on I will start after when everything cools down”WHY NOT START NOW?Its a lot better to start as soon as possibleKeep putting it off will lead to bad habitsBefore they know it there gaining more weight and taking a longer process to loose weight.(
  • -Having someone in the family who been over weight since there family can influence a child to be over weight or it runs in the familyTypes of food can make someone overweightOver working on something or putting your self last can make you gain weight and increase agingCan lead to depression if your into much stressRare diseases can cause weight gainingNo exercise means all food you eat will not burn but stay in your bodyYou over eat and eat twice as much then normal.

  • Stress on a teenager can cause obesity by stressing a teenager outBetween ages of 12 and up is when teenagers go through a lot of problems like school, family. and if there going to college or hope to be successful. Relationships can be brutal when it comes to break ups, most women and girls gain weight because stress takes over them and want the person they love to love them back. Leads to obesityAges between ages 12 and upChildren can become over weightLikely cause from family problems, school, friends and etc. It can get uglyWears someone outFoods are comforting and less exercise leads to packing the pounds(
  • Teenagers can create less stress on them selves by taking there mind off of the stuff that there stressing about. They want to get in to an activity that would get them off there stressor. Boxing is the best way to exercise for people who have problems, by hitting the bags or having a trainer putting the gloves up can get out all the stress that is hiding inside them.xWhat teenagers or can do to create less stress in there lifeGet into a active hobbieBoxingInstead of eating through the pain walk or run the pain.Walking, Jogging, or running is a good way to keeps you away from thinking about the stressors around you.Try not to shove food in you to make you feel betterEat healthy foods and keep away from junk foods.(
  • -Being over weight can really change a person, not all over weight people are jolly all the time.-People who are alone and have no one to love and someone to love them back can be hard for a person-Relationships between a man and a woman can get ugly because when someone breaks up with someone than can lead a person to do crazy things -Women are more likely would have this problem because we are more emotional then a man.Obesity can lead to depressionYES Person who been lonely for a long timeEat more then normalLack of sleep can make the body gain fat.

  • Teenagers who are very active in sport, clubs and maybe just go for a run have to eat more then lets say an adult. We burn faster then adults so our metabolism burns more food.If teenagers are active how much should we eat?Teenagers who are very active should eat every 2 hours at the leastFor diets it’s the best way to make your metabolism speed up by making your body to burn calories How many Calories?Average teenager should have up to 1700 to 2300 calories because of how much we burn for being young and being active.(
