Before you post a reply saying that your child is overweight or that you want them to lose weight, please first check our Weight Calculator. If the calculator says that your child is healthy weight, please do not post a message saying that they are overweight or that you want them to lose weight.  This offends the kids who really are overweight.  Thanks a lot.

From Jocelyn, child's age 10

Hi, I'm from the Philippines. My son is 10 years old, about 5 ft. and weighs 150 lbs. He is about 30 lbs. overweight. He really enjoys eating and at a young age already enjoys gourmet food including sashimi. Do you know a weight loss program that would enable him to enjoy eating at the same time allow him to lose weight? I know that's silly but he's just a child and I don't want to put him in a great deal of pressure about his weight. He's not really insecure but I'm sure he will be when he reaches 12 or 13 so I want to do something about it now. Help!
