    I dont think its so much about getting FAT. its more about feeling good mentally as well. I find´╗┐ myself way more productive, sharp, and generally happier when i eat healthy and fresh homecooked food.

    Thanks.I know´╗┐ that carbohydrates are essential for a healthy diet, since they provide the main sourse of energy for the body.

    @yasmin935 if you read my 1st comment you would see where i acknowledged the´╗┐ fact of media portraying a certain image to young people

  16. yasmin935 said on 27-08-2011

    @FedUpWFat My friend is same age as me 14 and she is´╗┐ healthy weight and she got called fat in school, I had to stick up for her because I know she would lose self esteem. People expect us to be thin, I am quite healthy (not thin but not ‘fat’) too but its the pressure of school not just home. Also tv shows making jokes about not eating which can encourage younger kids not too.

    @Nijichan3 because at such a young age you shouldn’t be preoccupied with weight and how you´╗┐ look ect! its a shame so much focus is place on appearances in our society. its the parents responsibility to make sure that their children eat correct portions and are adequately nourished. a child shouldn’t be worrying about things like that

  18. Nijichan3 said on 27-08-2011

    @FedUpWFat I’m 13 and female and I don’t know why you’re upset. Isn’t it a good thing that kids actually want to eat healthier? I’m trying to both lose three pounds and clear my skin, and I also just want to feel healthy and fit. My parents feed me well, but I need to stop eating so much and I don’t eat enough fruit. I think it’s good for young people to be informed´╗┐ about good eating habits at an early age and want to pursue them.

    i get so upset seeing these 12, 13, and 14 year olds on here talking about weight loss, diet, ect. its a shame! children shouldn’t be worrying about this stuff. their parents should be making sure they are cooking healthy foods and protecting them from obesity! Parents fail their kids and the media emphasizes more on being thin´╗┐ than healthy. its a shame i feel really bad for our youth. im going to make sure my son is raised healthy and doesnt worry about obesity because i will be doing my job

    I’m. 14 I cook foods for myself I’m not good but I get recipes now it says healthy but when it comes out I type the food in that I made and it ends up being fattening like the chicken parmesan i made with lettuce and growing olives very nice bit of oil delicious but it had 376 calories all together´╗┐ is that allot idk
