Overview

The Diet for Teenagers Only by Carrie Wiatt, Barbara Schroeder

"Here's the deal. You are in the biggest, most important growth spurt of your life. This is the most critical time for you to learn to eat right and treat your body with the respect—and the nutrition—it deserves."
–from The Diet for Teenagers Only

Teenage girls face a relentless assault on their self-esteem: television, the Internet, and magazines all barrage young women with images of perfection—and that perfection is closely linked with being thin. Over the last decade, this has led to larger health issues like eating disorders and even increased obesity. In The Diet for Teenagers Only, Carrie Wiatt and Barbara Schroeder give teenagers the dietary weapons they need to fight back and make smart, independent decisions by answering their most burning questions…

  • Just what is a calorie, anyway?
  • What's the best way to lose ten pounds? Or do I really need to lose that weight?
  • I think I may have an eating disorder. What should I do?
  • I hate eating breakfast. Can I just skip it?

A breakthrough diet plan specifically tailored for teenagers and their rapidly changing bodies and lifestyles, The Diet for Teenagers Only is written in a conversational, lighthearted voice. Filled with practical tips and must-have information, you'll find:

  • color cutouts of favorite foods that clarify what portion sizes should look like
  • recommended 7–day meal plans for different calorie needs—and create-your-own-menu options
  • easy-to-follow recipes and grocery shopping tips
  • a complete illustrated exercise program to boost energy and strengthen young bodies
  • a personal food diary for charting daily progress

For teenagers who struggle with food and their weight, or for those who simply want a head start on designing a smart and satisfying lifestyle, The Diet for Teenagers Only serves up fun, safe, and inspirational ways to be healthy whithout losing sight of the larger picture: While striving to improve your body can be a very healthy goal, learning to love your body is a far more important achievement—and one that will last a lifetime!

Okay I am 14, I weighED 160 10 weeks ago. I now weigh 140. I lose about a constant 2 pounds per week. Easy to follow, great food, good tips and great exercises. I pretty much don't do the food plan anymore but the book taught me so much that I eat much more healthier and I still lose weight every week. THIS BOOK IS MARVULOUS!!

This book is so incredible! I am 16 years old and have never been FAT, so to speak, but I just needed a little help eating healthier. "The Diet for Teenagers Only" helped me so much with my strive to eat healthier. I carry the book around with me all of the time to record what I eat, and my friends always ask about it; why I'm on a diet if I'm not overweight. Enthusiastically, I tell them that I'm just trying to eat healthier and life a balanced lifestyle. I recommend this book to anyone; 50 pounds overweight, 10 pounds underweight, or anyone just trying to live a healthy lifestyle.

i've always had trouble keeping motivated to exercise and stay healthy. my mother gave me this book and i neglected to read it because i thought it was just going to be another thing saying you are not perfect, this is how you should be. i finally read it and to my suprise i felt more motivated than ever to eat great and stay in shape. i cant tell you how much hope this book has gave me, it is worth every penny and i have never felt better in my life.

I'm a teenager who is struggling with weight problems, but after I read that book, I learned so much about my body and how important it is to keep myself very healthy. I'm learning how to eat better foods, control the portions I eat, and have a healthier body. Plus, The Diet For Teenagers Only is very easy to understand and the pink writing make it very fun! If I could, I would recomend it to to every teenage girl in the WORLD!

I am 14 years old and have been meaning to lose some weight and i bought this book and the results were... ok. I have not lost any weight and this book is not functional. I was planning on this to be great and it was not. It does to much talking and does not cut down to the chace. But I encourage anyone to try to eat healthy so I recommend this to any girl who is dedicated.

This book was a very good buy. It talks [in depth] first about what you need to know, like fats and carbs. It also lets you know how much calories a day you are supposed to have and how many servings you should eat of each group and what those servings REALLY are.It even gives you 7-day plans but you can still switch around because of the lists that you have of servings of each good group. It also gives you recipes that are really yummy but healthy and low in fat and sugar. And it gives you exercises that you can do that help you lose weight. This book also talks about anorexia and bullimia. It really is a great buy and I recommend anybody who wants to become healthier AND leaner to buy it.

In The Diet For Teenagers Only, the authors cover all of the important factors that help you maintain or lose weight. In it, you are able to check your BMI number to see if you need to lose weight or if you just need to maintain your weight. The book isn't a hardcore diet plan, it shows you what you need to do to make healthy eating part of your lifestyle. The book also shows you how to do great exercises. The authors also cover emotional eating and eating disorders. This is a very good book that should be on all bookshelves!

This Book is probably the best weight loss book ever for teenagers. Even if you dont have to lose weight, this book is great to start you off on a healthy living. Also, there are color cutouts of foods to show how big servings should really be. There is also an exercise program you can follow to help shape your body and burn extra calories. I'd recommend this book to anyone.

I got this book a while ago but hadnt really used it i was just trying to cut back calories on my own. Finally i deciede to use it and was amazed! I love the meal and exercise plans, and how it focuses on nutrition as well as weight loss! A great book for every teenager even if they dont have to lose weight and just want to stay healthy or fit or raise their self esteem!

This book was the single best diet book I've ever read. And to make things better, it's made for the teenage body, not the body of a 30, 40, or 50 year old.
