Loss Weight Studies on low- carb diets in teenagers Weight loss – with dramatic individual differences. This study looked at a very low- carb diet ( the subjects were instructed to stay under 20 grams per day for the first two weeks, and under 40 grams after that, so basically keto).
Help your teen understand that losing weight — and keeping it off — is a lifetime commitment. Fad diets can rob your growing teen of iron, calcium and other essential nutrients.
Weight- loss pills and other quick fixes don' t address the root of the problem and could pose risks of their own. Even then, the effects are often short- lived. Managing your weight and being happy with your look is hard for anyone, especially a teen who' s subject to peer pressure and images of skinny celebs. But bodies come in different sizes, and you can be healthy at a variety of weights.
